Stocking Stuffers Under $50

We know that the holidays can put a strain on your bank account. Paying for travel, festive dinners out, and, of course, gifts for everyone you know. It all adds up — fast.

Luckily, there are ways to be smart about spending. We’ve rounded up some of the best stocking-stuffer gift, each ringing in at less than $50. Read on to learn more about the Top 5 finds for guys and girls, from floral-print umbrellas to pom pom-trimmed socks and quirky snap backs.

Opting for gifts that are under $50 doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice quality. For starters, UGG’s plush thigh-high socks are still going to make her feel extra special without hurting your bank account. Or if she springs for bright colors more often than not, Desigual’s printed umbrellas will add color to any grey day and their set of toiletry bags will brighten up her morning routine. If she’s more likely to pine after spring when the winter chill gets too much, a pair of trusty Keds or a floppy hat will get her in the right spirits.

Shopping for the men in your life is simple when it comes down to it — he could always use a few knick-knacks. Like super-comfy cotton underwear, a rugged leather wallet, or convenient shoe cleaning kit. But if you want to treat him to something special in his stocking, try gifting him with a new pair of jute-wrapped espadrilles or a trendy snap back by up-and-coming brand Barba Nortena.

When most people hear that my name is Caitlin O’Connor, it usually elicits some comment to the tune of “ah, what a nice Irish-Catholic girl.”

I’m not helping any Irish stereotypes when I tell them my dad is the owner of a bar here in San Diego called The Scoreboard (a.k.a. O’Connor’s Pub during the month of March). So when St. Patrick’s Day grew nearer this year, I decided to ask my dad, who also happens to be the in-house veteran bartender, what he would recommend for St. Patrick’s Day drink recipes. He told me there was no such thing. Continue reading
