Christmas stockings hanging with pine tree and candy canes



With Christmas fast approaching, many of us will be making our gift giving list and checking it twice. Why not get creative? Here are three stocking stuffers you can make at home.

Homemade Candy Cane Bath Salts

In the midst of this global pandemic, what better stocking stuffer to give than the gift of relaxation? Homemade Candy Cane Bath Salts are an easy to make, seasonal-themed gift for the people in your life who love bath salts and candy canes. Himalayan pink salt, jojoba oil, and peppermint essential oils are all you need. When it comes to containers, we’d suggest keeping with the theme and finding some fillable candy cane shaped options.

DIY Map Phone Case

When it comes to a stocking stuffer your loved one will get some serious use out of, this item certainly takes the cake. All you need for a DIY Map Phone Case is a map, a clear phone case, and a few basic craft supplies. These are perfect for anyone with a love of geography or a specific place or city. Clear plastic phone cases for most phone models are really inexpensive and you can print or use an old map to create the design. And if maps aren’t your thing, You can actually do this with any image or papers to create all sorts of custom phone cases!

Homemade Peanut Brittle

There’s nothing wrong with a classic! Homemade Peanut Butter Brittle tastes better than any store bought candy, travels well if you're mailing it to a loved one, and looks great coming out of a stocking in a Christmas-themed container.
