101 Cheap Stocking Stuffers

This post may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure for more information.

ith the holidays just around the corner, I’m looking for ways to provide a memorable Christmas while not totally blowing the budget. Between extra Christmas gifts, family dinners and gingerbread house kits, there simply isn’t a lot of money leftover to spend on “extras.” But I know there’s one place I can save money: stockings! If there’s one thing I’m good at, it’s finding cheap stocking stuffers that pack a big punch!

I love picking up cheap stocking stuffers all year! It really helps me stay on budget and makes it easier to stay on budget during the holiday season. 

My secret for Christmas budgeting is that I don’t get picky about gifts. If I’m at a resale shop and I see a headband that my kids would love, I don’t hesitate to buy it. In fact, I PREFER to buy stuff second-hand. Not only does it save me money but it is better for the environment, too!

Christmas is so expensive so I'm LOVING this list of 101 cheap stocking stuffers! #68 and #31 are my favorites!

While we wish we could bless many more families, we were able to come up with a big prize for TWO families – $500 each, delivered via Paypal. Whether it’s to fulfill their kids’ Christmas wishes, pay off some bills, or to help buy even more cheap stocking stuffers, our prayer is that it helps to lessen any financial burden and/or fills a specific need, or simply brightens your day.

There are lots of entry options in the Rafflecopter form below – the more you enter, the better your chance of winning!  I know it can seem tedious and time consuming to go through all the entries, but isn’t a chance at $500 worth it? I think it is!  Plus, all of these amazing bloggers donated their own money toward the cash prizes, so this giveaway wouldn’t be possible without them.  I hope you’ll take the time to check out each one. Who knows, maybe you will find some new blogs to follow.
