Gift giving doesn’t have to be overwhelming! Instead of lugging large presents around, imagine showing up to your holiday gatherings with just one petite parcel. These 10 tiny gifts don’t take up much room, but they deliver big on good tidings.

1-handmadetinyletterHandmade tiny letter
Treat someone special to a mailbox surprise. When you order the letter, you type in your custom message and who you want to receive it. The lucky person will get the letter in a tiny envelope sealed with wax, a magnifying glass to read it, and a see-through coin case to store the letter, among other tiny delights. But don’t worry—it’s packaged inside a larger envelope so it doesn’t get lost in the mail! ($10.50, Leafcutter Designs. Size: Opened letter is 1″ by 1.5″)

Pencil Colored MUJI 36 ColorsMini colored pencils and sketchbook
A present for the on-the-go artist (or doodler) in your life. This set of 36 mini colored pencils comes in a tube which makes them great for traveling. Paired with this postcard-size sketchbook made from recycled paper, this gift could fit well on an airplane tray table or inside a small bag. ($11, for pencils; $4 for sketchbook, Muji. Size: Pencil tube is 4″ by 2.5″, sketchbook is 100 by 165 mm)

3-customstampCustom pennant stamp
Show your support for a friend with a custom pennant name stamp! The rubber stamp will be personalized with the recipient’s name, hand-lettered by the artist Sarah Neuburger. Your friend can use the stamp to mark their paper belongings (like books), or for a signature send-off on letters. ($30, The Small Object. Size: Stamped design is 1.5″ by 1″)

4-minifruitlipbalmMini fruit lip balms
Tonymoly is a Korean beauty brand known for its playful packaging. Their fruit-shaped lip balm pots are available in peach, cherry, or blueberry. They smell fresh and add a subtle shine to lips. After the balm is all gone, you can clean out the pot and use it to store something tiny, like a pair of earrings. ($10 each, Urban Outfitters. Size: .25 oz)

5-tacohotsauceearringsTaco and hot sauce earrings
Here’s a treat for someone who loves tacos and hot sauce—and mismatched sets of earrings! The earrings come in a small glass vial that can also display a micro collection of the recipient’s choosing. ($20, Yellow Owl Workshop. Size: Each earring is .5″ or slightly smaller)

6-minipinatasMini lemon piñatas
Charm six friends, or one super-special someone, with these lemon-shaped piñatas. They come empty, so you can fill them with a friend’s favorite candy, or non-fragile trinkets. Enamel pins, like these from the Good Twin, would fit great! Who doesn’t want a present that comes in a package you can smash open with a baseball bat? ($36 for a set of six, CactusPears Etsy Shop. Size: Each lemon is approximately 3.5″ wide by 4.5″ tall)

7-minilightboxMy Cinema Mini Lightbox

9-littlemarkstattoosLittle Marks temporary tattoos
These petite temporary tattoos could be a great gift to slip into a holiday card. The simple, one-color designs look much more realistic than the temporary tattoos of your youth.

10-petiteheartHeart-shaped Dutch oven
Le Creuset bakeware is highly sought after, and their special heart-shaped dishes even more so. While the full-size ones are over $100, you can score this mini for much less. Imagine all the heart-shaped treats your fortunate friend will make, and hopefully share with you! ($25, Williams-Sonoma. Size: 8-oz capacity; 7″ by 6 1/2″ by 4″ with lid.
