Affordable $5 Stocking Stuffers For Everyone On Your List


The days and weeks are just flying by. In with the peppermint patties and out with the pumpkin spice. The holidays are here and it’s the most wonderful time of the year not to mention, probably the most expensive too! 

Literally, people seem to be on their best behavior around this time of year. Not only are folks telling their kids to mind their manners because Santa is watching but they are leading by example to be more mindful of their own manners as well. 

I just love that!

So what affordable gifts can you give to the good folks that you interact with every day to show them just how much you appreciate all that they do to make your lives much easier and more enjoyable? 

Since the holidays can be an expensive time of year for everyone, here are just a few ideas to help you put together a nice little stocking stuffer or a care package to give to the neighbors, teachers, mail carriers, coworkers, service workers, family, & friends in your lives that won’t burn a hole in your pocket. 

Everything on this list can be found at your local Dollar Tree stores or the dollar bins at Target, Walmart, Michael’s, & Joann stores. 


However, if you are short on time and prefer the convenience instead, you can also order them in bulk and have them delivered via Amazon through my links below.
