Looking for stocking stuffers? Here are 20 affordable options under $5 you can get before Christmas for everyone on Santa’s list.

Hello stairs.

Your greenery and bows look amazing.

You’ve celebrated more Christmases with me than I can even count.

I’ve waited at the bottom step for Santa and danced up and down the stairs with my brothers and sisters waiting to go into the living room to see what he brought down the chimney.

My father would go first to see what Santa brought.

Then we’d run through the wrapping paper on the door and with great anticipation and fanfare march toward the mantel to see our stockings filled with presents. Except for the one year my brother found coal in his stockings.

But that’s a story for another day.

I know that Santa is busy and the elves are a little overwhelmed this time of year, so I thought I would make life a little easier so I’m sharing some inexpensive stocking stuffer ideas for under $5 that you can get before Christmas.

Here are 20 that are at the top of Santa’s list.

Under $5 Stocking Stuffers

Let’s start with these cute Christmas socks.

And the best part? All six come in a package for under $5. There are tons of options and colors.

You can see them here.

This tiny mini beauty spatula.

It’s perfect for saving money and getting the last bit out of any beauty product. I saw it on Shark Tank and it makes the perfect stocking stuffer.

Look at these window crayons.

They come in a set of five and you can use them to draw on any glass surface.

I have and use this facial spray with aloe, herbs, and rosewater. It’s amazing and helps revive dehydrated skin with a dewy glow.

Whether spritzed for a hydrating boost or midday pick-me-up it’s so refreshing.

These ouchless hair ties.

There are 60 in a pack so you could even split them up into different stockings.

This game is just like Monopoly except a lot faster and in the form of cards.

You try and collect property sets to win the game.

Look at this Dad joke book.

Over 600 jokes and the number one bestseller.

(total aside: It’s actually 5.93. But they were too amazing not to include.)

You can see the jokebook here.

This lip shimmer with peppermint oil.

Perfect for all the beauty requests on Santa’s list.

You can see it here.

Look at this fun undereye mask from Ulta.

It’s a set to help reduce puffiness.

And this mascara.

You know how much I’ve talked about it all year. What a perfect stocking stuffer.

You can see it here.

This scalp massager.

It removes the dust, oil, dandruff and dirt and creates healthy scalp and shiny hair. It also reduces hair breakage, and relieves stress.

Christmas is coming soon.

I’ll be waiting on the stairs until then.

And feel free to pass this list along to Santa…

….just in case you’ve been good this year, too. 🙂

    I was checking out someone's stocking stuffer suggestions on Youtube yesterday. I think the cheapest one was around $15. I mean, she had some good ideas, but wayyyyyyyyyy too expensive for my budget, so thanks for being more realistic with yours! I'm actually doing pretty well on mine. Cookie cutters, individual hot chocolate packets (with individual fun marshmallows), and Christmas tree ornaments are also favorites of mine to give. I suppose that makes me predictable. Oh well.
