The hardest thing about the holidays is finding the right things for EVERYONE. I always forget stocking stuffers and I end up scrambling the nights before trying to get a few things together. Not this year!! I have rounded up the best 5 items you can get for men or women, that are extremely useful and fun! All of these items are easily found in most stores so you don’t have to stress!
1.Fancy Soaps– Who doesn’t love a good hand soap? AM I RIGHT? Bath and Body Works always has crazy sales around the holidays and I love adding these into any gift I give. It’s useful and makes everyone’s home a little more festive. I also love that they have holiday themed scents. These are also great co-worker gifts.
2.Chocolate- I find that chocolate or sweets tend to always be a go-to during the holiday season. Even if the person doesn’t specifically like chocolate, you can’t really go wrong with a delicious treat. It’s something you know the other person will enjoy but also something they won’t waste, and it doesn’t take up space once eaten!
3. Lottery Tickets & Scratch Offs- Without fail every year this is the best gift to give. I usually give these to all the men in my family that don’t really need anything and are hard to shop for. The New Jersey Lottery has four Holiday themed Scratch Offs available for the holiday season. These holiday games will make the perfect gift, stocking stuffer, party favor, etc. Last year my Dad won $200 on the scratch off’s I gave him- it was so fun to watch! These tickets are easy to find at any brick and mortar Lottery retailer like 7/11, Quick Check, Wawa, etc. If you want more project ideas, view this video. You can also join the million dollar replay and be eligible to win prizes ranging from $10,000 up to $1,000,000.
4. Holiday Socks- The gift of socks never goes unused. Every year my mom packs our stockings with Christmas socks and I look forward to my new pair every single year! Not only are these great for the holiday season, but the winter in general when you’re wearing heavier boots or shoes that require a higher sock.
5. Mugs- Most adults love drinking beverages. I would say every adult I know enjoys either coffee or tea. Getting them a fun mug is an easy way to buy something useful that they might not buy themselves. I love getting holiday mugs, but also mugs that are personalized with photos and other fun sayings. You can buy these pretty much anywhere and they are affordable!
