Inexpensive Stocking Stuffers - 100+ Affordable Ideas
This was a somewhat challenging topic to write about because what’s cheap to one person may be expensive to another person. So I’ve gathered Christmas stocking stuffer ideas that range from thirty to four dollars. To me that seems like a pretty reasonable range for inexpensive stocking stuffers. And to make it a little easier for you to find the right item for the right person at the right price I’ve listed everything according to age group and gender and in descending order in price. You’ll find stocking stuffers for all adults, both men and women and of course kids. Since teenage girls and teenage boys are between childhood and adulthood, I think you’ll find many appropriate gifts in the adult section. You’ll also notice there’s a lot of variety to the items selected. Some things are useful and some things are fun (like candy for example). I wanted to include as many different types of gifts as I could reasonably fit in a brief article as well as an average size stocking. You’ll find affordable stocking stuffers for gadget lovers, music lovers, golfers, people that love to read, candy of course and plenty more.
