23 Of The Absolute Best Stocking Stuffers For Moms

best stocking stuffers for moms

Christmas is coming! Have you been shopping? Are you ready?

Who are we kidding? Of course, you’re not ready! Anyone who’s ready for Christmas before Thanksgiving passes should be given a medal of some kind. Or made president. Or worshipped. Or all of the above.

One aspect of Christmas shopping that often gets left until the last minute involves stocking stuffers. They’re usually small items, and just so easily forgotten about until the last minute. You’re not alone in this!

But fear not! While we can’t really help if you have to fill your football-loving, whiskey sipping father-in-law’s stocking, we’ve got some killer ideas for how to fill a stocking for the lovely mom in your life.

Check out what we found to be the best stocking stuffers for moms.

Mom will be the coolest shopper at the market with one of these super fun organic cotton tote bags. Add some coffee and mascara to the bag when you gift it to her and make her even happier!

5. Pocket Mirrors

Why is it that there’s never a mirror in your purse when you need one? This mirror is not only convenient but will remind mom that she’s got everything she needs to slay this day.

Every woman loves a good Lululemon headband. They’re a casual-chic wardrobe staple, and it’s possible that mom already has one – or four. But she’ll always say yes to another one, especially when it comes from you!

That’s right, your mom is cool. And everyone will give her the respect her coolness deserves when she totes this hilarious water bottle into the gym for her killer daily workout. You rock mom!

A wine that comes in chocolate form? Insert shocked emoji face here! Not only are these little chocolates adorable, but Mom can rest assured that she won’t get tipsy from consuming the whole bottle.

22. Snacks

We know that most moms run on coffee and… more coffee. And we also know that energy bars are uber popular right now. Combine these facts and voila! Mom gets caffeinated chocolate bars for Christmas!

If there’s a vegan mom on your list, try this bag of coconut jerky. It’s more than just vegan, it’s gluten-free, soy-free, paleo, and certifiably delicious!

23. Bottle Stoppers

An entire bottle of Shiraz won’t be a good fit for mom’s stocking, but this chuckle-worthy bottle stopper sure will. By the looks of this chimney, it seems Santa himself may have been into the Shiraz!

For a more classic, year-round appropriate stopper, mom’s initial in a rose gold finish is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Or maybe get several letters and spell out your name so that she doesn’t forget after a few glasses!
