Now that we've moved past the gifts, it's always important to remember those stocking stuffers. The big gifts can always be a bit much, but sometimes stocking stuffers can be really corny and cute, and they always add a little something to the fun of gifts. Here are five great stocking stuffers you can get this year!
1. Gift Cards
If you know the person you're buying gifts for, but don't know them super well enough, gift cards are like the holy grail of present buying. Not only does it save you the hassle of trying to figure out what to get someone, but it's practical enough to be used on just about anything. Bonus points go to the fact that these things never expire, and that you can use them for online shopping too. Some of the gift cards on my list this year include Sephora, Forever 21, and Chapters. Pretty much everywhere offers a gift card be it for retail, food, or online platforms like iTunes and Kobo. They're tiny enough that they can slide perfectly into a stocking.
2. Portable Phone Charger
A small ye practical gift, these little chargers are amazing especially when you're constantly on the go. Nothing is worse than being out with friends, or at a concert, or just out doing your thing and you need to use your phone for something and your battery dies. You can get all sorts of different chargers that come in a variety of designs. My favourite is this little guy from Wal-Mart. Super in love with the zebra pattern. Cute yet practical!
Keychains have been such an iconic piece of accessory for me, so much so, that i don't reacal a time where I haven't had a keychain be it on my keys or my bags. These little guys come in a variety of designs and ideas from those fuzzy balls that is seen on practically every purse, to emojis, pretty much everything can go on a key chain. I may/may not but most definitely am obsessed with this pizza one from Urban Planet. Relatable.
Okay, I know this sounds like a weird stocking stuffer, but you'd be surprised how much we actually need to use pens. Same with the need for socks at Christmas. It's there, and it's necessary! Please don't feel resorted to plain old boring pens, especially when there's variety. One of my favourite brands, Ban.do have an awesome three set of pens that provide a little ego boost with them. Each one says "gosh, you look so cute", "you're better than unicorns", and "you rule so hard". It really makes writing things, especially the annoying things (i.e. papers, cheques, that list of things to do) a bit more bearable. These awesome pens can be found on Ban.do's official site, or you can buy them in stores (or online) at any Chapters/Indigo/Coles
Do I really need to explain myself? It may not be a lasting gift, but it sure is delicious.
