What Are Good Stocking Stuffers for Your Wife?
When coming up with stocking stuffer ideas for your wife, there's plenty of room to get creative. Since you'll likely be buying more than one gift to put in her stocking, feel free to explore different themes. For example, you can choose one present that reflects her interests (think: makeup from her favorite brand) and another that addresses a need (hello, new socks). As far as stocking fillers go, size is also important. You want to find things that are small enough to fit in her stocking, but that still feel special and show her how much you appreciate her. Some good examples include personalized jewelry, a mini photo book and gourmet versions of her favorite eats.
If you're buying multiple items, one final factor to consider is the cost—those price tags add up. Here, we've rounded up some of the best stocking stuffer ideas out there under $15, under $25 and under $50, with most of them ringing in under 25 bucks!
