Heading to a holiday party? Don’t show up empty-handed! Bring the host or hostess a charming holiday gift, like a candle or something cozy for bedtime. Or treat yourself to one of these items and have a holiday soiree of one.

Stocking Stuffers and Tiny Treats

A selection of pencils, stickers, washi tape, and eraser on a lunch tray.

Tiny gift. Big joy. Most of these items are $5 to $20. Affordable yet oh-so delightful. Obviously you know someone who needs book-inspired literary lip balm or a card deck with encouraging messages from dogs!

Tiny Books and Quick Reads

For Your Parents or Grandparents

The book, What I Love About You.

Say, “I love you” to your mom, dad, or grandparents. Many of these gifts can be used to collect stories from elders—creating a legacy book or time capsule of memories. More than a gift, it’s an opportunity to bond with your loved one and (perhaps) hear a few stories they haven’t told you before!
