Happy Friday, loves!!! I hope you've all had a great week and are getting pumped for a weekend of Halloween festivities! We're kicking off our spooky weekend with Emma Grace's "Boo Bash" at school this afternoon and then we have a weekend full of pumpkin carving, baking, and of course, trick-or-treating!

But, because the holiday season will be here before we know it, we are shopping for the holidays a little bit at a time. As you know, I've created a little space on my blog for holiday shopping tips, what's on my Christmas list, and for my "must-have" gifts for this year. As a reminder, each Friday I will be posting a holiday shopping guide that focuses on a different category each week.
Last Friday I shared by favorite must-have basics for both men and women and today we're talking stocking stuffers! I think I may like stocking stuffers more than opening presents if I'm being honest. I just think they're so fun. Stocking stuffers are typically not gifts you've asked for and can range from items as small as candy to higher price point items like perfume, gift cards, or jewelry!
The other thing I love about stocking stuffers is that every family does them differently! I grew up with stocking stuffers that consisted of candy, little knick knacks like nail polish and travel size perfume, and every year we always had an old fashioned bottle of coca cola with Santa on it. But, some families take stocking stuffers up a notch and use stockings as part of their gifting with bigger items like watches, nice jewelry, etc. I just love that each family makes this portion of their holiday their own. Keeping this thought in mind, the stocking stuffers I've picked below range in price as I know we all do this differently.
The best news is though, this is part of the holiday gifting that's super easy to do well in advance of the holiday itself. So, browse my picks, get shopping, and be sure to let me know what your favorite stocking stuffers are!
