12 Stocking Stuffers Under $12

Full disclosure: I’m absolutely awful at shopping for gifts. Giving gifts is one of my most favorite things to do, but I’m terrible at going to the mall during the holiday season and finding that perfect something for that special someone. Instead, I’m the girl who finds a gift in April for her best friend/sister/mom/boyfriend/cousin and buys it on the spot, only to keep it until Christmas–sometimes spilling the surprise beforehand.

Whether you’re shopping for your co-workers, best friends or current roommates, I’ve got 12 cute & Christmasy stocking stuffers that won’t break your bank. Happy shopping!
