The Best Stocking Stuffers From Small Businesses
Handmade Lip Scrub – I LOVE lip scrubs, especially this time of year. This lip scrub is made by Sage & Balm which is a skincare line created by a family of plant-based eaters based in Miami who wanted to make cosmetics without the plethora of chemicals that they usually have. Check out some of their other products which would also make good stocking stuffers here.
Geode State Ornaments – State stoneware ornaments made of crackled glass glaze. All handmade by Kerry, a ceramics artist in Minnesota.
Custom Pet Ornament – Laura does beautiful custom ceramic paintings including these dog ornaments from a photo of your recipient’s dog.
Reusable Paper Towel – Reusable paper towels that are eco-friendly AND adorable.
Wooden Tic Tac Toe – Made by Tree Fort Toys which was created by a mom looking to make toys for her own daughter from natural materials. Personally, we always get some type of little toy or activity in our stocking, so I thought this was too fun! Great for adults or kids.
Therapy Dough – Similar to the clay used by art therapists, this dough is infused with essential oils for stress relief. It’s handmade by a husband/wife team in Portland, Maine.
Personalized Leather Keychain – Handmade leather items from Minnesota, these high quality leather keychains that are hand stamped are a great gift for less than $10!
Initial Necklace – This California business makes small, personalized bridesmaid gifts, but this little initial necklace is perfect for anyone! Check out their entire Etsy shop for TONS of personalized options for stocking stuffers!
Shower Steamers – I love the story behind these steamers. Created by Anusha who began making bath and body products when trying to take care of her own body and mind while experiencing postpartum depression. From that experience, she decided it was important to encourage others to prioritize self-care and ended up getting a certification in natural product formulation. She has since done tons of testing to find the right formulas for her products.
Grow Sunflowers Kit – This little DIY kit allows you to grow six different heirloom varieties of sunflowers. Made and assembled in Georgia.
Shower Steamer Spray – As a mom, I’m all about making little things, like a shower, feel even more special and relaxing. Sure a full-on bath is nice but I don’t always have the time or patience. So, I love this idea. Made with all-natural ingredients, spray this into your shower walls and turn your bathroom into a steamy spa. Handmade in Washington State.
Bloom Lollipops – These are all-natural, handmade, botanical flavored lollipops THAT have seed-filled sticks (yep you can plant the stick when you’re done). They come in unique flavors like lavender-lemongrass and strawberry-basil.
Wooden Candlesticks – These unfinished wooden candlesticks are beautiful as is, or someone who is crafty could have a blast painting or DIYing them. Handmade by Heather, a woodworker (and mama!)
Date Night Bucket List – A bucket list kit just for couples so they never have to ask “what should we do for date night?” Made in the US and created by Anne (who hails from Pennsylvania). Anne is passionate about making people happy and turned that into creating a line of gifts. She also has a “Family Fun Bucket List” for families.
Custom Stamped Spoon – This is such a cute gift, you can get a spoon with anything on it. Have it say “mom’s coffee spoon” or “you’re the cream to my coffee” or “Jack’s Mac and Cheese Spoon” whatever you want. It’s a super fun gift idea. Even cuter, they are made by a mother-daughter team in Virginia who make everything with an antique kick press!
