Who doesn’t like a great stocking stuffer? Christmas stocking stuffers are small and cheap gifts that can theoretically fit into a large stocking hung over the fireplace. Even if you don’t have the fireplace, or a stocking for that matter, stocking stuffers still come in mighty handy. The best stocking stuffers are also work well as hostess gifts, co-worker gifts, new home gifts, teacher gifts, or gifts that kids can swap with other kids at a school gift exchange. So, with all the great uses, why not choose things that are a little cleaner, a little more natural, or organic even. Here are my top 10 ideas for natural and organic stocking stuffers.
Natural and Organic Stocking Stuffers:
1. Nail Polish
Nail polish is a great idea for fashionistas in the making or any woman who wants to add a little fun and/or sophistication to her life. Cheap, cheerful and fun. Perfect. Check out my post The Best Non-Toxic Nail Polish for the best clean brands to buy.
2. Oil Sprayer
If you have a foodie or burgeoning chef on your list, an oil sprayer is a great idea. No need to glug on tablespoon after tablespoon of artery clogging oil onto your salads or oven-ready fare, simply pump and spray for a light coating of oil.
Misto makes a couple of good ones.
3. Organic and Fair Trade Chocolate
Chocolate is always a great gift idea, but why not make it even better by choosing an organic fair trade chocolate?
Endangered Species Chocolate, Green and Black’s Organic Chocolate, and Newman’s Own Organic Chocolate are great picks that are easy to find and taste great.
4. Beeswax Crayons
An easy, natural, non-toxic stocking stuffer for the kiddos. This way you will feel a little bit better if they end up putting them in their mouths.
Honeysuckle Beeswax Crayons are a great choice.
5. Hand or Body Lotion
Hand and body lotion are great options for the hard to buy for on your list. Everyone likes to have soft hands and a little scent never hurts. Even the manliest of men need lotion from time to time.
6. Stainless Steel Straws
Make your favorite recipient’s drink even safer and cleaner with stainless steel straws. Totally practical and good for them all at the same time.
Many to choose from on Amazon.
7. Organic Cotton Socks
The staple stocking stuffer gift. Well, socks and underwear. Make them organic for an 80% Clean approved pick.
Amazon (of course) has a wide range to choose from for the whole family (and undies too).
8. Natural and Organic Lipstick
This one is just for the ladies, but lipstick is the number one pick for women to buy when they need a pick-me-up. Why not be the reason the ladies in your life feel a little better?

9. Organic Tea
Tea is the all-time calming drink. Buy a bunch of different flavors and make a small gift-basket or bunch for a useful and cheap gift.
Numi Organic Tea, Traditional Medicinals, or Stash Tea are all great choices.
10. Organic Grass Fed Beef Jerky
Why didn’t I think of that, you say?1? Beef jerky is a low fat, high protein snack that almost everyone enjoys. Make it organic and grass fed and you have a winner.
Well, there we have it folks. A lot of people think that finding natural stocking stuffers that are safe, economical and useful is hard to do, but as you can see from this list, the options are really almost endless.
