Small Christmas Gift Bag Ideas


Whether your budget is small or you don't know the person you are getting a gift for very well (often the case with co-workers), a small gift bag is a way to give someone a thoughtful Christmas gift without spending a sleigh-load of money. Tweak the bag's contents to reflect what you know about the recipient's tastes and interests.

Sweet Treats Bag

  • Stuff the bag to bursting with delicious Christmas treats, such as traditional holiday cookies (sugar, spritz and gingerbread), thick artisan candy canes, homemade chocolate mint truffles, and single-serving packets of gourmet hot chocolate. Buy and bake the goodies in bulk and wrap individual servings in colorful cellophane if you are making multiple Christmas gift bags.

No-Stress Gift Bag

  • Fill the gift bag with travel-size items that will help the recipient relax and forget the stresses that can sometimes accompany the Christmas season. Possible items include a CD of relaxing music, aromatherapy oils or soaps, bath beads, a deck of yoga pose cards, a sachet of lavender (lavender is often said to be a soothing scent), hand lotion, a gel eye mask and a holiday-scented candle. Color-coordinate the items to create a unified appearance.

Classic Christmas Stocking Bag

  • Give the recipient a miniature stocking filled with small but thoughtful gifts that will help make the recipient's Christmas special, such as a miniature book of cookie recipes, a tiny potted poinsetta seedling, or a copy of a classic children's holiday book, such as "The Velveteen Rabbit" or "The Polar Express." If you'd rather not purchase a stocking, make a decorative stocking bag from brown paper cut out in a large stocking shape and stitched together around the sides with red yarn.
