Affordable Stocking Stuffers

The other week there was a link up to share ideas for stocking stuffers and I just have to say that if those are the type of things people got in their stockings growing up than I clearly didn't have as generous of a Santa. I saw a new iphone on one list. If that's considered a stocking stuffer I want to see what your actual under the tree gifts are; in other words, adopt me please?

I have 2 rules for stocking stuffers: 1. small  and  2. cost $15 or less.  I think once something costs more than $15 it should be considered an actual gift. I happen to really love stocking stuffers due to the fact that in my family I have the largest stocking, which I like to remind everyone is because I am always at the top of the nice list.

So here are some of my ideas for stocking stuffers that are fun and won't break the bank.

Koozies : I'm actually really hoping to find one of these from our yacht club in my stocking this year. I feel like you can never have too many koozies, especially heading into all the bowl games, because nobody should have to hold a perspiring drink.

Nail polish : This is really a no brainer, and probably the most popular stocking stuffer. You can pick a standard favorite color, or pick one from the latest winter collection. I'd love to find a little bottle of Essie's Sable Collar.

Sticky Notes / Pens : They now make so many varieties of sticky notes in all different colors and shapes. Run out to your closest office supply store and pick up a couple of packs. Also you can find packs of colorful pens for relatively cheap. Maybe I'm crazy but I really love fun, bright colored office supplies.

Hair ties : Who couldn't use some more hair ties? You can usually find the elastic ones for about $1 at local boutiques. Also a good idea, bobby pins.

Candy : Go to Walmart and pickup a few boxes of the $1 movie candies. Now you've got the supplies to watch one last Christmas movie later that night.

Socks : These are seriously such a great idea for a stocking stuffer, probably the best of the whole list. They're inexpensive, cute, and so practical because you wear them under boots all winter. I can never have too many socks, because they're the favorite food of my dryer. Forever 21 and Target have the best varieties for the best prices.

What do you hope to find in your stocking Christmas morning? Am I crazy for thinking these gifts need to stay under $15?
