Stocking stuffers are super fun for everyone but can get costly and take away from the main gifts. Now that the kids are off from school, you can entertain them by having them help you make stocking stuffers for everyone in the family. Not only are these useful, they are cute, won’t cost an arm and a leg for materials, and you can improvise with what you have laying around the house. Including a few of these handmade-with-love items along with some hand creams, lip balms, and holiday candy will give you the best stocking stuffers in all the land.
Printable Holiday Reindeer Noses
What’s Christmas without some reindeer? More importantly, what’s any holiday without some chocolate? This is so ridiculously cute, easy, and quick that everyone will think you spent a lot of time on it. The kids will have a blast with this but make sure you get extra chocolate because you know how those kids (read: moms) can sneak chocolate in when on one’s looking!
DIY Tassel Earrings
Tassels are all the rage now along with faux fur. You don’t have to spend a ton of money on tassels when you can make them yourself. You’ll simply need some yarn, a handy jewelry tool to turn the yarn tassels into earrings or bracelets.
Fox Corner Bookmarks
So perfect and cute for the bookworm or stationary lover in your life. We all need a great bookmark for that Harry Potter book we’re reading at any given time. We personally love things that can be used for bookmarks because we have about 72 books that we need to finish at any given time before the year 2070.
This DIY playdough will absolutely keep the kids busy and all the kids of friends busy for hours. Have them help you make this then send them off to their play desk to create castles, mountains, cars, and dinosaurs. Best of all, it’s cheap, you probably have all the ingredients at home, and it’s pretty non-toxic. Plus, you don’t have to fight anyone at Target over the last set of Playdoh.
Candy Tin Gift Card Holder
Isn’t it crazy how gift card holders sometimes cost more than the gift card value itself? Seriously, what gives? You can make these at home by ordering all the supplies from Amazon or visiting your local craft store. The best part is that you can personalize it to the person you’re giving the card to. Making it a little more from the heart versus a hasty yet pretty looking “just ran to Target real quick to get this for you like two minutes ago.”
