Stocking Stuffers Under $5

Updated on December 5, 2012

Stocking Stuffers are fun little gifts that you can add to larger gifts, or that you can place in actual stockings. You can stuff a stocking with lots of great things for a relatively small amount of money. Here are some stocking stuffers under $5 that you can find in-store and online! These can also be great small gifts to give on their own or to use in a gift exchange.

Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Land Green Tea (Decaf) $2.99

I'm actually drinking this right now! I can't believe it's green tea because it doesn't have that 'green tea' taste (or taste bitter if you steep it too long). I'm very picky with how I brew my green tea because I don't want it to taste bitter, but with this tea, it actually tastes better the longer you steep it. It comes with 20 bags of tea and will get you into the Christmas spirit! Unfortunately, they aren't individually wrapped, but the price is low enough that you can get a package for each person on your list. Available from Celestial Seasonings website and Amazon.

Boss Tech Cashmere Knit Touchscreen Gloves $5

These gloves are great for those who are addicted to their phones and other mobile touchscreen devices. If they use these devices even while walking in the cold, they know that in order to use their phone, they need to take off their gloves. With these gloves, they can keep them on and text at the same time. The unique conductive fingertips allow users to use touch screens with these gloves.

Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm $3

These lip balms are great for girls and women who like nice packaging, great colours and delicious flavours of lip balms. Some of the flavours have some colour to them, while others are clear. All of the Baby Lips Lip Balms are very moisturizing and inexpensive. You can find these on Amazon or at stores like WalMart, Target, Shoppers Drug Mart and other drug stores.

Carmex Ultra Moisturizing Lip Balm in Lime Twist $3.50

For those who want something less girly in a lip balm, the Carmex Ultra Moisturizing Lip Balm in Lime Twist is a clear lip balm that tastes like lime. This citrus scent is refreshing and sure to help brighten the dark days of winter. This one can be found on Amazon but other Carmex products are available at drug stores.

Fred & Friends Borrow My Pen Set $1/pen

These pens would be great to give as a gag gift or as a fun addition to any stocking. Each pen has the name of a fictitious business or service that is weird and unusual. If someone asks to borrow a pen, hand them one of these and see if they notice where it's from, You may get some awkward stares! These pens would be great for teenagers or anyone who enjoys novelty gifts. Best of all, the pens actually work!

Jones Soda is famous for having interesting flavours and great labels. These would make great stocking stuffers because you can purchase a case and split them up amongst everyone on your Christmas list.
