26 Stocking Stuffers for Everyone You Love
There's nothing quite like watching your loved ones open the holiday gifts you so carefully chose for them. This is especially true for brides-to-be, who have spent hours selecting the perfect present to convey just how much they've appreciated the love and support of family and friends throughout the wedding planning process. But holiday gifts for your parents, siblings, wedding party, and future husband don't have to be extravagant to be special. In fact, stocking stuffers or a few small gifts are often just as meaningful as one big one.
If you're traveling for the holidays, choosing a few mini gifts for each person is a particularly smart strategy. You'll have space to spare in your suitcase (you can pack many of these right in your carry-on luggage!) but will still get to treat your VIPs to multiple presents. Putting together traditional holiday stockings for your nearest and dearest? Then these picks speak for themselves.
From cold-weather accessories and techie gifts to edible treats and fun accessories, these stocking stuffers are the very best presents to put on your must-buy list this season. Some of our favorites include an elevated twist on a classic childhood candy, the most luxurious (yet affordable!) lotion, and a sleep mask that practically ensures your recipient will get a restful night's sleep. Not shopping for the holidays? No problem. A few of these finds would work as big-day gifts for your 'maids or groomsmen, or as extra-special welcome bag fillers.
