Stocking Stuffers for the Teens and Tweens
If you’re still with me on the stocking stuffer train, then you’ll love today’s stocking stuffer ideas for teens and tweens post. Here are some fantastic gift ideas for anyone on your list aged 11-20!
Small Glitter Globe Frame – $8 @ Urban Outfitters
This is totally the type of thing I’d have flipped for as a teen. I was constantly printing out photos of my friends and cutting them up to fit into the random frames I got as Christmas gifts. This one is extra festive as it functions as a year-round reminder of the holidays (snow!) and adds a little sparkle every time you shake it.
Merino Mountain Hiking Socks – $15 each @ Muttonhead
This cool Canadian brand makes their products right here at home – and is beloved by guys and gals in the know. Whether they’re outdoorsy or not, a pair of warm yet breathable wool socks is a welcome gift as we dip into the coldest months of the year. These hip unisex socks come in bright, vibrant colours that also make it a snap when sorting laundry.
Fresh Sugar Lip Power Couple – $30 @ Sephora
Before she dives headfirst into the world of lippie, make sure those lips are primed and prettified with this duo of softening and smoothing products. Start with a lip balm to keep your lips from getting parched in the wild winter weather, then finish off with the brand’s signature Lip Treatment to nourish lips and minimize lip wrinkles. It’s a perfectly festive gift that’s pre-boxed and ready for her stocking!
OYO Sports NHL Team Locker Room Set – $24.99
In general, OYO Sports is a fun way to commemorate the sports fan in your life’s favourite team – you can pick up LEGO-esque minifigs in star players for every NHL team (or other sports too). But this little locker room kit caught my eye as something different he can set up on his desk and customize to his beloved home team (the kit comes with stickers for every team). A gift that’s equally fun to set up, play with, or gaze at – perfect for tweens and teens that haven’t totally left behind their LEGO days.
Hard Candy Holiday Collection – $2.97 – $4.97 @ Walmart and Walmart.ca
Gorgeous gift ideas don’t have to cost a bundle – as this festive lineup of beautiful products so clearly demonstrates. All of the items you see above cost less than $5 (in fact, only the nail set with the makeup bag is $4.97, the rest are $2.97) and can be mixed and matched for each stocking in your household. From frosty-flavoured lip balms to glittery topcoats to sparkly lip glosses, these are actually just a handful of the affordable, fashionable, and oh so fun Hard Candy beauty products she’ll love to unwrap on Christmas morning!
Leather Cardholder – $19.99 each @ H&M
Real leather for under $20? Amazing! These simple leather cardholders are really all any teenage boy needs to stash his essentials. Coming in both black and tan, there are two compartments on either side, plus one at the top, so he can keep his student ID, debit card, and bus pass or driver’s license handy.
Inkbox Temporary Tattoos – From $19
Before they take the plunge for the ultimate form of teenage rebellion, give ’em a taste of ink with this surprisingly long-lasting option from Canadian brand Inkbox. Using a proprietary method of fruit-based inks, these temporary tats will last for a whopping two weeks. With tons of designs for him and her to choose from – including all the classics like anchors, star signs, and animals aplenty – you can even buy separate inks to freehand designs or ask for a custom one.
