The Best $5 Stocking Stuffer Ideas (more than 100 ideas!)

Sharing is caring!

Finding the perfect stocking stuffer can be a challenge. Not to mention that filling a stocking can get expensive, especially when you are have multiple stockings to fill. Getting inexpensive stocking stuffer ideas might even feel totally out of reach. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Let’s talk about some of our favorite $5 stocking stuffer ideas to add to your Christmas list! Whether your loved ones are into toys or tools, we have something for them. So sit back and relax while we show you some of our best ideas!

Using Stockings to Your Advantage

Stockings can feel like a chore, they are the non-present, presents. However, stocking stuffers can actually be really useful! Instead of grabbing cheap toys or trinkets that won’t last long and will get forgotten, why not choose something useful instead? In our family, stocking stuffers include things that we normally need (like toothbrushes or hair gel) but a more fun version. For example, instead of just getting normal toothbrushes, we grab battery powered toothbrushes for the kids. It’s a great way to get what your family already needs, while still having fun with it!

Don’t get junk

Don’t buy junk just for the sake of filling a stocking! Instead, grab things that are useful and will actually get used. From toys to tools, we have something for every type of person on your Christmas list. Here are some of our favorite ideas:

Our $5 stocking Stuffer Ideas

$5 stocking stuffer ideas

A price point of $5 or less might seem impossible, but it’s actually quite easy to find several great items with this budget. Here are some of the things we love:

*Disclaimer: I’ve tried my best to stick to a $5 budget with all these suggestions. In a few cases, I’ve included items that are over that budget, but within just a few dollars. Please also note that prices can change over time. At the time of this posting, all the ideas included in this list were within a few dollars of $5. I’ve also included a few more expensive set’s that could be broken down between several stockings. These will be noted.
