Last-Minute Stocking Stuffers Under $10

My Christmas tree has been up since the weekend after Thanksgiving. I have most of my Christmas shopping done, and all the gifts I’ve purchased are wrapped and under the tree. But for some reason, I’m having a really hard time processing that Christmas is NEXT WEEK.

Have y’all seen the memes making fun of how we can’t seem to understand how time works? I really think it’s something about getting older – time goes so much faster. But I also think that I’m struggling with it being December and Christmas because of our weather – last week we had a day that reached 78 (seriously, what the heck), and today was in the high 60s. It just doesn’t feel like Christmas when it’s that warm.

Honestly, when I travel to home to Virginia next week, I’d be totally ok if we ended up with a white Christmas. I used to despise the cold, but it’s just been so dang hot that I’d love to bundle up or play in some snow!

So how is everyone’s Christmas shopping going? I have a few more things to snag, but I’m feeling pretty good about my list!

If you’re still looking for some stocking stuffers, I’ve scourged the Internet for small items that I’d personally love to find in my stocking (hint, hint family!). And by scourged the Internet, I mean I narrowed it down to Amazon because of prime shipping and Target because Red Card holders get 2-day shipping, so you can get these items with plenty of time to spare. Everything is linked below, AND everything is under $10!

Last-Minute Stocking Stuffers

From the top row, left to right:

NYX Butter Gloss

This is my favorite gloss, and the best part is that it’s under $5. It comes in super yummy dessert-based flavors, which kind of makes it hard not to lick it all off your lips. My favorite is Tiramisu because it’s a neutral color, so I can wear it with everything.

Leopard Neck Scarf

Neck scarves are so chic. It’s such a simple accessory, but it really adds a cute and trendy touch to an outfit. I love this neck scarf in the super popular leopard print – it comes in several colors and even a snake print. You could also use it as a hair scarf or tie it onto your purse! Versatility!

Middle row, left to right:

Insulated Wine Tumbler

Who doesn’t love an insulated tumbler? If you need a last-minute gift for a secret Santa, this tumbler would also be a really great gift. It comes in black, rose gold, pink, navy, and mint. It’s perfect for lounging on the beach or around the house, and it even comes with a reusable straw, so basically you’re saving the turtles, too!

Sorry I’m Late Mug

I really need to purchase this for myself because it’s such a true statement. This is the perfect stocking stuffer for the person in your life who loves staying home over going out. And it’s under $5!

Bottom row, left to right:

OPI Nail Polish

I have a friend who has a VERY strict nail polish routine. Being around her has made me pay more attention to my nails and realize that having polished nails helps you feel and look more put together. I’m currently obsessed with the Less is Norse color (a bluish gray) that I’ve linked here, but there are other colors that are just as fabulous.

I cheated a bit with this one because the retail price is $10.59…BUT, if you’re using your Red Card, the 5% off brings the price down πŸ™‚

Yes to Joy to Your Skin Masking Kit

The holiday season is often stressful, so your skin deserves a little bit of love. Use the code BEAUTYGIFTS for an extra 25% off this kit until December 21! I’ve been wanting to try the unicorn mask, so if you have this or purchase it, please let me know how it is!

6 Pack Headbands

6 headbands for under $10…that’s a pretty great bargain! You could even divide these up between six different people for a majorly budget-friendly stocking stuffer! This pack includes three leopard and three snakeskin prints.

Good luck with getting all your shopping done! Let me know what you’re most excited about during the holidays in the comments – mine is eating! πŸ™‚
