I never in a million years thought I’d EVER have my act together to even make a gift list let alone have 75% of my shopping done PRIOR to Thanksgiving. Who am I?!
Well I’ll tell you, #momlife changes you, like A LOT! No more scrambling the week before Christmas trying to finish up my shopping list. This Mama is killing the holiday game this year! 😉
Okay, so here it is, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite finds for the season all of which are less than $30 each and make perfect gifts for family, friends, relatives, or even yourself (yes you deserve it!). All of these items note pricing and I’ve also included links in case you need more info on where to buy.
Hope this list helps you check off some of yours!

With prices ranging from $13-$23 per set (price dependent upon number of letters), these crayons make the perfect stocking stuffer for your little one(s). It also comes in a monogrammed gift box perfect for gift giving. I stocked up on a set for all the kids this year and I was so impressed with how quickly they arrived! I mean who doesn’t love Etsy!?
Furtherfood Vanilla Collagen Peptides: You’ve heard me say it before but I’ll say it again, I am IN LOVE with Furtherfood products! Their newest addition, Vanilla Collagen, which is $29.95 per jar, is perfect in overnight oats, smoothies and baked goods. This collagen makes the best gift to inspire health this holiday season!

Beautycounter Peppermint Lip Conditioner: I never leave the house without this lip balm! It’s like my holy grail to lips especially during the cold winter months. Although my favorite flavor is the peppermint it also comes in calendula (yay options!). It’s not only made with the cleanest of ingredients but is perfectly packaged to make an ideal stocking stuffer. At $22 each you should gift yourself one too! 😉
Rosemary Grow Kit: I love using fresh herbs in my recipes and this easy kit makes a great gift for all of the chefs in your life. This kit contains everything you need to grow your own herbs and is all wrapped up in a burlap planter for only $12.99 each. The rosemary and other varieties are suitable for indoors as well.
Nickel and Suede Leather Earrings: After stumbling across this company on Instagram a while back I have built up quite the collection of these fun earrings! With their unique colors, patterns, and optional sizes they make a gorgeous gift for the holidays. Shown above are the Teal Ridge in size medium and are only $27 per pair.
Perfect Kids Chocolate Chip Bars: Emerson (and I) can’t get enough of these yummy bars. The chocolate chip is a family favorite and I love how easy they are to take on the go. As a mom I am always trying to get her to eat more veggies so with 8 hidden superfoods like kale, carrots and sweet potato I am so happy knowing she’s packing in the nutrients during snack time! You can stock up on these bars by ordering them online along with other great flavors and options. These ones are only $24 for 20 bars, that’s less than $1 per bar! (Much cheaper + healthier than a candy bar!)
Honest Beauty Eyeshadow Palette: I have been hooked on Honest Beauty products with their clean ingredients and reasonable prices. This eyeshadow palette is my favorite! It includes a selection of colors all with gorgeous pigment. It’s easy to apply and lasts all day, too! This palette is only $19.99 and would make an awesome stocking stuffer.
Trader Joe’s Olive Wood Cutting Board: Per usual Trader Joe’s nails it again with these olive wood cutting/serving boards. For only $12.99 each you must RUN (not walk) to your local store to get this amazing buy! They sell fast (duh!) and would make a beautiful addition to your holiday table or as a gift for your kitchen-obsessed friend.
Lake Champlain Christmas Truffles: Nothing says the holidays without a bit of chocolate. These adorably packaged, handmade truffles make the most delicious stocking stuffer for $18 per box. My local Whole Foods carries these but they can also be purchased via their website along with many other yummy options.
Harper + Ari Exfoliating Sugar Cubes: I was actually introduced to this product in one of my FabFitFun boxes and was instantly hooked! These amazingly scented sugar cubes are the perfect treat for dry winter skin. They come in a variety of scents but if you’re unsure go with the Discovery Set for a little sampling of each! These nicely packaged gift boxes are only $12 each!
