Best Stocking Stuffers.

Best Stocking Stuffer Ideas

We take stockings seriously in my family.  My mom prides herself on finding little things all year round and then stuffing each of our stockings with the most unique, crazy, useful, and silly things.    They’re *this close* to being cooler than the gifts themselves, though that might have something to do with the mini bottles of liquor we adults find tucked into ours.  I consulted the master herself and a bunch of my family members to ask about their favorites from the past and what they’re hoping for this year. 

When we were little, my step-mom would stuff an orange into our stocking because that was the tradition in her family, so don’t forget to add those special traditions from your own family!

If you’re anything like me, Christmas is a week away and you’re still in a mad dash for stocking ideas and shopping.  Lucky for you there is still time.  This stocking stuffer guide brings you just a ridiculous amount of fantastic ideas from the practical to the absurd, so you can create the best stockings ever for your peeps too.  This list is exhaustive, so have fun exploring.  If you have any great ideas that should be on the list, feel free to leave a comment and tell me!

An orange, your favorite candy, gum, new pens and pencils, chap stick, and all the cool stuff collected over the year! I love this post!
