25 Last Minute Stocking Stuffer
Ideas for Grownups from Amazon
Happy holidays! Still looking for some last minute ideas for stocking stuffers or smaller gifts for gift games or hostess gifts, or maybe something for your mail carrier, etc?
There’s still time with Amazon shopping.
In this post, I’m sharing 25 different gifts, between $5 and $30, that can make a perfect stocking stuffer or a small gift you still need to get. What’s even better is that I’ve used just about all of these items myself and can vouch for the quality (the few I haven’t personally used I’ve verified with many listed reviews).
The gift suggestions are listed in no particular order. Click the image or product title to navigate to the Amazon listing to purchase or see more details as well as color/style options if available.
$26.50, 20 colors
This is one of my all-time favorite gifts! I have four of these in different colors. They are so cute and really protect sunglasses or eye glasses. There’s also a little zipper compartment on the back side that’s perfect for a cleaning cloth or lipstick. Every person I’ve gifted this too absolutely loves it. Tons of colors available.
17-Piece Folding Allen Wrench Set | Metric & Standard SAE, 2-Pack
$13.99 for 2-pack
This may not be on your radar as a stocking stuffer type gift, but when I was recently working on a home project, I needed this tool and my husband pulled out his allen wrench set. This tool is what’s needed for hex screws (those little screws with a six sided head) that seem to be in so many things. It’s perfect for females and males. And you get two in this set!
I cannot live without my Spatty! Spatty is a makeup tool that helps you get more product out of cosmetic containers that are running low. Skin care and makeup is expensive, and often we leave 7-10 days’ worth of product at the bottom of a container because it no longer pumps out. I can usually get at least a whole week’s worth of product out of a container using the Spatty. Game changer. And will fit so easily into a stocking!
Radiate Portable Campfire: The Go-Anywhere Outdoor Fire Pit
How fun is this!? A mini, portable campfire! (You may have seen it on Shark Tank.) The Radiate Portable Campfire weighs only 4 pounds and is 8″ wide, making it a hassle-free outdoor fire pit you can use anywhere. It’s eco-friendly and made in the USA. Radiate is made from recycled soy wax and recycled paper briquettes, to minimize the carbon footprint.
$13.61 for 2-piece set
I recently acquired a set of small floral shears that I love and never knew I needed until I had them! If someone on your list loves having flowers in the house, it’s so nice to be able to trim stems and leaves with a tool that’s made for that purpose rather than regular kitchen scissors. These are compact and can easily be stored in a kitchen drawer. Ergonomic design and soft grip handle; accommodates right and left-handed users.
$29.99 for 12-pack, 11 design sets
If you have a number of stockings you still need to fill, this is a great pack. These are a nice standard size cosmetic bag/pouch with really beautiful designs. The zipper works well and the inside is lined (although it doesn’t appear to be waterproof).
$16.99 each, 29 colors
This is a very useful tool for mixing powder drinks (collagen powders, matcha drinks, hot chocolate, teas, etc.). It’s easy to insert into a glass or cup and then simply depress the button on the top of the handle for as long as you need to mix. And so many fun colors!
PopSockets: MagSafe Phone Grip, Phone Holder, Wireless Charging Compatible
$29.99, 10 colors/designs
If anyone you’re shopping for uses a Popsocket grip on their iPhone and has a magsafe phone case and a magsafe charger, this is a game changer. When I got my new iPhone 14 I was so sad that I wouldn’t be able to use a Popsocket since I’d purchased a magsafe phone case and charger. If I used a regular Popsocket, which uses adhesive to stick on the back of the phone case, it would not allow the magsafe phone case to connect to the magsafe charger.
Here’s the fix: The magsafe Popsocket uses a magnet to attach to the phone case! When charging the iPhone using the magsafe charger and a magsafe phone case, the Popsocket can be quickly removed from the magsafe case so that the magsafe charger and magsafe case can connect. When you’re finished charging your phone, you simply reattach the Popsocket via the integrated magnet.

Phone Tripod, 51″ Adjustable Travel Video Tripod Stand with Cell Phone Mount Holder & Smartphone Bluetooth Remote
We’re all using our smart phones as cameras more than we use cameras anymore. If anyone on your stocking list creates videos for social media, this is a must-have. It’s lightweight, extends pretty tall, it’s compact so it can sit on a desk or table, AND it comes with a bluetooth remote to control the shutter or video start. I have this model and love it.
$19.40, 6 colors
I suppose you need to be careful if you’re giving this as a gift or stocking stuffer 😉 – you’ll need to know for sure that the recipient will appreciate this tool. Basically, it’s a gentle shaver for the face. Works great, easy to use, and DOES NOT leave stubble or cause hair to grow back thicker. I know – I use it.
LENTION USB C Multiport Hub with 4K HDMI, 3 USB 3.0, SD/Micro SD Card Reader
I learned the hard way after purchasing my new Macbook that it doesn’t have any ports for USB cables or memory cards. This little attachment is a must-have. It’s very compact and fits easily into my small computer bag. It’s also available in silver and space gray.
Any plant lovers on your gift list? This moisture meter has been a life saver for me as I, unfortunately, don’t have the green thumb gene. When the probe is quickly inserted into a plant’s soil, the meter takes the guesswork out of watering and shows how moist/wet the soil is.
“Mixture” Brand Clear Soy Votive Scented Jar Candle in a Sweet Slim “Jar”
$14.99, a wide variety of scents
I have several of these candles. They’re so cute! I like to group them in a set of 3 or with other candles of varying sizes.
Mixture 2 oz. Clear Soy Votive Jar Candles come in a sweet narrow jar, and there are a variety of scents. The candles are made with clean ingredients. Dimensions are 4″ tall x 1.5″ diameter. Mixture candles s are handmade in small batches in Kansas, USA.
Don’t think this is weird. This is a perfect tool for anyone who loves candles. It’s actually SO helpful when you need to trim a candle wick (which is every time you burn one). Regular scissors just can’t get in some of the narrow spaces of jar candles. This little tool not only easily clips the wick but also catches the trimmed off part so it doesn’t fall back into the candle wax. My husband laughed at me when I bought it, but it’s one of my favorite household tools!
This little journal is so cool. It gives just enough space to quickly jot down a line or two about what you want to remember/record about your day – every day for five years! It’s a nice, compact size too.
I bought this book for myself on a recent trip to Seattle to visit my son and his fiance. I’m saving it to start in the new year.
$5.49 for a 2-pack
If you use facial masks, you know how messy things can get in the application process, especially with charcoal masks. These mask applicators save the day. I never apply masks anymore without this simple tool. Set of two – slightly different shapes but they both work the same.
$14.99, 4 pack
A back scratcher is something you never think about . . . until you have an itch that’s driving you crazy and you can’t reach it. This is a set of four so there are plenty to go around.
Compact Makeup Mirror, Double-Sided with 2 x & 1x Magnification
$7.99, 20 different designs
Having a small mirror in your purse, car, backpack, etc., is a must! This is a cute one with a little bit of magnification. Check out all the designs. Perfect for checking teeth and makeup, and great for applying lipstick.
Daily Crystal Inspiration: A 52-Card Oracle Deck for Finding Health, Wealth, and Balance
Are you familiar with oracle cards? They’re a tool for self reflection and meditation and not as “woo woo” as you might assume. This deck pictures a different crystal on each card and each one shares a brief phrase, like, “Get out of your comfort zone,” or “Set strong boundaries.” I was gifted this deck and love it! I use them as a way to focus an intention for my day.
You Deserve This Sh!t: Get Unstuck, Find Your Path, and Become the Best Version of Yourself, Paperback
$15.99, 454 reviews with 4.6 rating, over 10,000 sold
In the spirit of transparency, this is a book authored by one of my sons. And it’s that good – which is why I’m comfortable including it in this list of suggested stocking stuffers. It’s appropriate for all ages. He’s a millennial, so young people will especially appreciate it. And I’ve read it and also found it really helpful – I’m a baby boomer!

A portable charger can be a lifesaver. This is really budget friendly with two charges in the set – one for someone else and one for you maybe?
Give someone the ability to have a spa experience – in the shower! Simply place one of the aromatherapy shower tablets in the corner of the shower and let the steam work its magic; the shower bombs gradually release their aroma for a spa-like experience. Natural and plant-based by OZiva.
