Fun, simple, cheap, and easy to make gifts that anyone can make. I love giving gifts, and these thoughtful stocking stuffers are something I can make in a matter of minutes. Like, I need to go out with a friend and I want to give him/her something, I grab some materials, and get the job done in five minutes.

My friends always appreciate my little gifts, and I am sure you’ll friends will love you even more. I am not suggesting you should buy their love with gifts, but hey, we all love gift giving. And btw, stocking stuffers are not only for Christmas. These small gifts will put a smile on your friends face no matter the period of the year.

1. Animal key chain

I gave something similar to a friend of mine some two months ago. She constantly has troubles with her keys, losing them here and there. And since this key chain puts a little weight and it came from me, she now keeps perfect track of her keys.

6. Handmade hand warmers 

Here is another small gift that you can give away to several friends. For example, I would suggest throwing a party and giving some gifts to all your guests. People arriving at a party don’t expect gifts, so it would be a nice a surprise.

11. Homemade peppermint lip balm

Peppermint is definitely one of the best ingredients for lip balm. Check the cosmetic store, and I am sure you’ll find a peppermint lip balm there. But why buy readymade? I admit, sometimes, that is the easy and simple way. However, if you like to give a gift sometimes, this homemade lip balm is definitely something to consider.

15. Wooden geometric wine stopper

Why you need a wine stopper? Well, not everyone drinks their bottle of wine in the day they open. Using a wooden wine stopper makes sure your wine doesn’t lose taste, aroma and flavor in a day or two after you open it. And even if you are drinking a whole bottle of wine when you open it, it looks fancy with a wine topper while sitting on your table.

24. Tile photo coasters

For me, personally, this is one of the most thoughtful gifts. I love when there are pictures involved. But I make it a point not to add boring pictures, like me and my boyfriend hugging. But, that is just me. The tiles are the more important aspect, and I would recommend using natural stone tiles.
