This year, we have done the pre-work for you and created a comprehensive list of affordable gifts that make for great stocking stuffers for friends and family. With intentionally crafted gifts, you can be the MVP this year and have the best Christmas stocking stuffers.

When in doubt, buy a candle! With the right person in mind, you really can’t go wrong with purchasing a candle from a local maker. Who doesn’t love to fill their home with amazing scents? Candles are the perfect small item for Christmas stocking stuffers and are a gift that keeps on giving.

Sometimes the stocking stuffers are items that are necessities. Everyone needs soaps, shampoo, and conditioner on a consistent level, so don’t keep using the same old stuff. Buy local from soap makers in your own community.

This one is for the coffee lover on your list! Finding local coffee shops that roast and bag their own coffee makes for the best stocking stuffers for the cover lover of your family. Not only is a bag of local coffee the perfect size for a stocking stuffer, but it will also accompany your stocking with a pleasant smell. Check out our list of local coffee shops that sell bagged coffee.
