11 Adorable Small Stocking Stuffers That Make a Big Impact

The holiday season is just around the corner, and that means it's time to start thinking about filling those stockings with thoughtful gifts. While it can be tempting to go for the usual chocolates and trinkets, why not switch things up this year with some unique little happies that make a big impact? From heart-shaped ring dishes to reusable cotton rounds, we've got something for everyone on your list. Keep reading for some creative stocking stuffer ideas!


Ring Dish for the Jewelry Lover

First on our list is the adorable heart-shaped ring dish. This little gem is perfect for keeping rings, earrings, and other small items safe and accessible. Not only is it practical and totally adorable, it’s hand-crafted by the women at Prodigal Pottery, a non-profit that helps women escape homelessness, trafficking and domestic abuse.



Coffee Scoop for the Coffee Aficionado

For the coffee aficionado in your life, a wooden coffee scoop is a must-have that will have their morning fix covered! This scoop from Azizi Life is hand-carved using eco-friendly musave wood by artisans in Rwanda. In exchange for their expert craftsmanship, the artisans receive a fair and dignified wage that goes toward medical insurance, school materials, nutritious food, and farm animals that multiply income for years to come – necessities that are often out of reach for rural families.



Napkin Holders for the Entertainer

If you have a friend or family member who loves to host dinner parties, a set of stylish napkin holders makes a unique stocking stuffer they’ll use all year long. Consider this set of hexagon horn napkin rings from 2nd Story Goods, a nonprofit artisanal social enterprise with a mission to end the cycle of poverty in Haiti. With two thirds of Haitian adults unemployed, 80% of Haitian orphans have at least one living parent who was forced to give their child up due to poverty. 2nd Story Goods employs local artisans and pays them a living wage that is 5x the minimum wage in Haiti. That means each set of napkin rings purchased directly contributes to reuniting families torn apart by poverty.



Coasters for the Practical  Homebody Who Still Loves a Little Style

Coasters are always a handy stocking stuffer that will have them smiling all year long, and they come in various materials and designs to suit anyone's taste. Whether it's classic cork coasters or trendy marble ones, they'll protect surfaces from cup rings while adding a touch of flair to any room. Check out this set of coasters from 2nd Story Goods (Yes, the same non-profit that crafts those adorable napkin rings!) Handwoven by expert basketweavers from the leaves of local lantanye trees, these natural coasters make the perfect addition to any side, coffee or dining room table.



Specialty Tea Sampler For the Tea Lover

Warm up your loved ones with a selection of high-quality teas they may not splurge on themselves. Choose from traditional black teas, soothing herbal blends, or unique flavored options. Or gift them a sampler box like this one from My Cup of Tea, a nonprofit that employs underprivileged women in their local community with the aim of restoring the neighborhood to a vibrant community of connection. You can even pair the tea with a cute teacup or a teapot for the tea lover in your life.



Hand-Crafted Herb Markers for the Green Thumb 

From the same talented ladies at Prodigal Pottery who make the ring dish above, these garden markers are perfect for the green thumb in your circle. These little tags make it easy to identify plants and herbs in the garden and keep everything stylish to boot! 



Hand-Poured Candles for Anyone Who Loves Getting Cozy

Add a cozy ambiance to your loved one's home with these little tin candles from Crowned Free. These handmade soy candles are hand-poured by women who have been rescued from human trafficking for a meaningful gift that makes a difference. 



Reusable Cotton Rounds for the Eco-Conscious Make-Up Lover

For the eco-conscious makeup artist, reusable cotton rounds are a fantastic stocking stuffer. These soft, washable pads are not only environmentally friendly but also gentle on the skin. Created by Swahlee, a slow fashion brand in northeast India that creates career opportunities for women who face barriers to safe employment, they're a small change that makes a big impact.



Scrunchies For the Style-Savvy Fashionista

Scrunchies have made a comeback, and there are none cuter than these scrunchies from Not i But We, a safe house that provides dignified work, holistic care, and skills development for human trafficking survivors. With a variety of colors and patterns available, you can easily find some that match your loved one's style. 



Leather Tassel Keychain for Anyone Who Loves a Little Flair

A leather tassel keychain is a stylish and functional stocking stuffer that can help your friends and family keep their keys organized. This tassel from Artisan Streams adds a touch of sophistication to their keys and helps employ master leather workers and preserves the rich tradition of leather working in Uttar Pradesh, India.




With these creative stocking stuffer ideas, you can add a touch of warmth, style, and functionality to your loved ones' holiday celebrations. Whether it's a heart-shaped ring dish for jewelry lovers, reusable cotton rounds for sustainable makeup artists, or cozy tin candles that create a warm ambiance, there's something for everyone on your list.
