holiday gift guide : stocking stuffers (under $25)


ok one last gift guide, because i couldn’t resist putting together some smaller items under $25 — and they are ALL amazon prime so you don’t have to worry about them arriving in time, yay!

last year i did two stocking stuffer gift guides, for him and for her, but this year… i didn’t feel like it. so it’s mostly unisex! stockings can be so hard because you want them to be nice and fun and thoughtful but you also don’t want to spend a ton, right? i mostly went with useful items this year, i think maybe because i’m a mom lol? hope this helps you!

you guys remember on broad city how abby was a bb&b aficionado? that’s me. i have a drawer full of coupons and i’m there every couple months to exchange my soda stream carbonators. i know the store can seem so massive and overwhelming, but it’s actually organized in a way that makes shopping really easy since the sections are all categorized. it’s def a one stop shop for holiday entertaining, i think a lot of people assume they just sell roasting pans and towels but they so many have gorgeous things i honestly struggled narrowing down what to use for the table.
