Christmas will be here before you know it! If your Flexible Spending Account balance exceeds your Carryover limit or your plan has the “use it or lose it” setup, you may feel like the Grinch about now. However, did you know you can get some great FSA-eligible stocking stuffers and gifts with that available FSA balance? Here are a few ideas to consider.

6 FSA-Eligible Stocking Stuffers

1. Lip Balms

What happens when you have chapped lips and get caught under the mistletoe? Lip balm to the rescue! If that lip balm contains sunscreen, it’s eligible for purchase with FSA funds. Stocking stuffers for the whole family!

2. Baby Monitor

Did you recently welcome a little one? If so, this holiday season could prove especially exhausting. Watching a newborn closely while trying to get good sleep is tough. Good news — smart baby monitors are FSA-eligible. These use a camera and mobile app so that you can watch a baby from just about anywhere. Some models also offer advanced features like breathing, sound, and motion detectors.

3. Breathing Aids

If your loved ones have sinus issues, they may use breathing strips or nasal dilators to help them through the night. These items are FSA-eligible and a great way to spend down by stocking up. Plus, boxed breathing strips fit nicely into Christmas stockings!

4. Orthopedic Supports

Is there an athlete in your life? Orthopedic braces always come in handy for sprains and pulled muscles. Back, knee, and ankle braces are some of the FSA-eligible stocking stuffers that can bring relief to your favorite fitness buff.

5. First Aid

First-aid kits are a must-have for everyone. They provide peace of mind when not needed and can be literal lifesavers when a problem arises. Restock pain relievers, antibiotic ointments, bandages, medical tape, and more. You can also use your FSA to buy pre-packaged first-aid kits.

6. CPAP and Accessories

Few times of the year are more hectic than the holidays. If you or a loved one has sleep apnea, keep your CPAP machine in good working order to ensure you wake up feeling rested. CPAP sanitizing equipment and replacement items like masks, hoses, and filters are all FSA-eligible.
