I wrote an article about 22 themed stocking stuffers for everyone on your list, so make sure to read that if you haven’t yet because it’s full of great ideas!
Today I want to offer a few more themed gift & stocking stuffer ideas. And remember – these ideas can be put into a gift basket, gift bag, or a stocking to cover everyone on your list!
Game Night. Fill a stocking or gift basket with a new board game or card game, the recipient’s favorite snacks, and some hot chocolate mix (use this delicious and easy snowman soup recipe!).
Coffee. Purchase a bag of coffee, a pretty coffee mug, and some fancy chocolate to go with it. Or make this gift more manly with a coffee & newspaper theme like this fantastic coffee gift basket I saw on Ruffled!
Spa Day. I mentioned a spa stocking for young girls in my other stocking stuffer article, but a spa kit can easily be made into a present for all of the women on your list! Nice lotion, a scented candle, bath salts or bubble bath, and homemade sugar scrub would all be great presents for a spa kit!
Outdoorsy. For the outdoorsy person, buy a great headlamp, good-quality water bottle, trail mix or beef jerky, survival bracelet (I love my purple one!) and nice pocket knife. If your outdoorsy family member loves to camp, also check out this adorable camping survival kit on J. Day Designs!
Music Listener. Fill a basket with a new CD, a t-shirt of the recipient’s favorite band, and a band poster for the music lover.
Music Creator. For the person who creates music, consider making a cute gift basket with basic staff paper or a fantastic Moleskine music notebook. Include an adorable music-note pencil, a pack of music-note pencils, or nice music-writing pens. And look at this adorable music mug – you could put a bag of hot chocolate mix or instant coffee inside the mug for the recipient to enjoy while they’re writing new songs!
Comedy. Does someone on your list enjoy a bit of clean comedy? Then give them the gift of laughter! I’m sure there are other great clean comedians out there, but my personal favorite is Tim Hawkins. He has some shirts on sale for $5.oo right now, tickets for his live shows start at $22.00, and he has a few full-length DVDs for only $10.00 each!
Marriage. Giving a gift to a couple? Put a book like His Needs, Her Needs, The Five Love Languages, or Night Light into a basket. Then include sparkling cider, a fancy snack, and a good marriage movie like Courageous, Fireproof, or Letters to Juliet. I love how cuddly The Dating Diva’s make their romantic basket look!
Magazine Subscription. Grandparents subscribe to a few magazines for my kiddos and the girls LOVE getting those in the mail every month! They’ll read the magazines from cover to cover, read articles out loud to me in the car, and flip through them again and again.
Tickets and Memberships. A museum membership, tickets for a train-ride, a gift card to a pottery place or bowling alley, or tickets to a local theater make great gifts for a family who loves having fun but is on a very limited budget.
Bonus Tip: A subscription, ticket, or membership is generally a complete gift in itself but if you’d like to build a theme around one of those gifts, you could include related items in the gift basket or stocking. For example, a zoo membership or a subscription to Ranger Rick Jr. could include animal-shaped cookies or gummy snacks, a t-shirt with a nature scene on it, and animal stickers.
For even more ideas:
I absolutely love these gift basket ideas on Creative Savings! Her basket theme ideas include Frozen, science experiment, snow day, ice cream sundae, BBQ and more. I’m pinning Kalyn’s article to refer back to for possible birthday gift ideas throughout the upcoming year!
