6 Cute Stocking Stuffer Ideas For Your Roommates That Are Thoughtful AF

by Tessa Harvey

It's almost beginning to feel a lot like... well, Christmas. With Thanksgiving right round the corner, we've officially launched ourselves right into the midst of the festive holiday season, and of course, what goes hand-in-hand with the holidays? That's right — it's the gift-giver's time to go absolutely nuts. I don't know about you, but I spend most of this time trying to decide what to get for the people closest to me. There's so much pressure to find the perfect gift for all of your loved ones, even if the pressure's just in your head. Who has me the most stumped this go-around? This year, it' deciding on cute stocking stuffers for roommates that has me really thinking.

If you've been lucky enough to score some amazing roommates, this situation gets even more difficult. It's a walk in the park to find something generic for someone you're not really close to, but when it comes to your BFFs, the struggle is all too real. If you really don't know where to start in picking out some must-have gifts for your besties, these six holiday stocking stuffers are your lifesavers this season. There's something special for each of your roommates (even the picky one in the bunch).

A Few Pair Of Hella Festive Socks

Fair Isle Trouser Socks, $9, Madewell

How stinking adorable are these socks? You can't go wrong with a pair like this one, for a couple of reasons. One, they're super cute. Two, I don't know one person in my life who can't make use with another pair of super cozy socks around the holidays. A pair of these festive gems is the easiest stocking stuffer in the book, and your roomie will absolutely love it.

A Trendy Candle

Glass Candle, $22, Madewell

Everyone, let's give the OG stocking stuffer some necessary attention. The idea of giving someone an amazingly-scented candle has been around forever, but it truly never gets old. Step up your game this year with this trendy firewood-scented candle your roommate will enjoy lighting while reading a great book.

A Chic Tote Bag For All Of Their Books

The Reusable Canvas Tote, $5, Madewell

A tote is another fire stocking stuffer idea, because it's something your roommate will definitely get so much use out of. Even if she has a go-to book bag or grocery carry, we all like to switch things up a bit (plus, this one will look super chic in pictures). Even better? You really can't beat that price if you're shopping on a budget.

A Sweet Personalized Box

Prim & Proper, $28, BOXFOX

If you want to do something cute and personal, BOXFOX will be your new best friend. The adorable boxes are compact and filled with the essential items your roomie deserves this holiday season. This particular gift box includes nail files, hand cream, and a charcoal face mask, and comes with a handwritten card.

What box you send to your friend is completely up to you (I personally have my eye on this awesome pasta-mastering box).

Something To Complete Their Daily Routine

Clay Art Tapered Base Mug 21oz, $5, Target

If your roomie cannot survive the day without some caffeine, this gift is the quality stocking stuffer every tea or coffee drinker in your life needs. You can pick from an array of fun designs and colors, although I'd personally stick to online shopping. We all know how much damage we can do when we spend too much time in the incredible Target.

A Luggage Tag For The Jetsetter

Wit & Delight 2pc Luggage Tag Set, $10, Target

Dr. Seuss once said, "Oh the places you'll go." If you have a roomie in your life who you know lives by this quote, this is the perfect gift for her, hands-down.

Whether she's traveling by plane or has a bucket list full of new places she wants to explore, she's a travel-lover and her wanderlust is undeniable. She'll get good use out of a luggage tag or two, and you'll have the right to say you helped fund her luxurious trips (in a way).
