What to get her for Christmas? If you’re an average man, you’ve asked this question every year since you had your first girlfriend! It’s never easy to shop for Christmas gifts for the woman in your life, even if there is no cap to your budget. Things get a whole lot harder if you want cheap, simple things for stocking stuffers.
Thankfully, we’ve got some ideas to help you out:
Stationery – It may sound like a crappy gift, but not to the woman who likes to write little notes and thank-you cards to friends and family. Try to find nice things: fancy pens, elegant stationery, cute notebooks, and the list goes on. It’s simple, cheap, and practical!
Lip balm – You have no idea how many times she has lost or misplaced her Chapstik, or had it stolen by a friend. Lip balm is something you rarely miss until you don’t have it, so it makes a great stocking stuffer. It’s certainly not the BIG gift you want to give her, but it’s something cheap and easy that she will need and use.
Gloves – Make no mistake: this is a hit or miss gift. Get her a nice pair of winter gloves or mittens, and she’s sure to love it. But sometimes she needs a pair of gloves for the garden or to protect her hands while cleaning. Getting her this gift may or may not go over well, so make sure you have a backup gift that is far more beautiful than practical!
Jewelry cleaner – If she is the kind of person who likes to wear jewelry, a bottle of jewelry cleaner makes for an excellent stocking stuffer. Her rings, necklaces, and bracelets will get tarnished with wear, so a tub of jewelry cleaner is a good gift for her.
Stamp – If she’s the kind of person who likes to send off letters, gifts, and packages by mail, this is a gift she will definitely appreciate. Have a stamp made with her name, address, and phone number, and it will save her A LOT of time. Bonus: this is an even better gift if you’re getting married soon–it will save her a ton of time when sending out wedding invitations and thank-you cards.
Hair elastics — You can never have too many, and she will never really be able to complain about this gift. Hair elastics disappear like cocktails at a bachelorette party, so it’s a good gift to give her.
Chocolate — This one definitely goes without saying! Chocolate is always an excellent gift, even if it’s not Christmas time. Adding chocolate into her stuffing will make her happier with all her other more practical gifts.
Fancy soaps – What woman doesn’t love fancy soap? It’s a practical gift that is also highly decorative, and it adds a touch of elegance to either your master bathroom or the guest bathroom. It’s also blessedly inexpensive!
Journal – This is a gift that she may appreciate a lot more than you might think. A journal is a place for her to pen her thoughts without worrying about anyone reading them. It can be freeing for her to have an outlet for her emotions, so it’s a good option to consider.
Snacks – Gourmet tea, hot chocolate, popcorn, cookies, biscuits, and other little snack foods make for a wonderful addition to any stocking. It’s a simple gift, one that she is sure to enjoy either over your vacation days or throughout the year.
These gifts are small and simple, but they are the perfect cheap and easy stocking stuffers for women!
