Shelly said: “Single hot chocolate servings so they can enjoy warm morning ‘coffee’ too.”

Jeannie said: “Handwritten coupons – good for a batch of cookies, no chores for a day, a trip to Baskin Robbins, A Slurpee, etc.  My boys love them!”

Tammy said: “I stuff the stockings full of cute little toys, Christmas Candy, gifts, etc.  We wrap each item individually as we put them in the stockings.

  We write names on the gifts with glitter pens.  The squeals, oohs and ahhs are priceless, as we sit and watch them dig into their stockings and open each wrapped gift.

  It’s such a fun task to shop for the gifts, and a joy to watch on Christmas Day.”

Lacey said: “A Book Light and Ear Buds are on my list this year.”

Marisol said:“I stock up on free samples all year long for this.

  I keep in mind the age of each recipient – candy, perfume, cologne, lotions, stickers, cereal, beauty products, granola bars, coloring books, kid tattoos, pencils, crayons, cookies, toothbrushes, shampoo, and small toys.

That’s just naming a few things I already have!  Wrap these individually with small bits of left over wrapping paper to save even more!”

Kiersten said: “Coal… haha, just kidding! If I find clearance items throughout the year, ( Hot Wheels, crafts, lip gloss, candies, hair bows, etc.) I buy them and keep them til Christmas!  Also, last year I won a few giveaways from blogs… including kid’s CDs and DVDs!  I added those in the stockings, too!”

Kristi said: “Batteries for any games/toys they are getting or already have, an apple and an orange (family tradition and probably the only healthy thing they eat Christmas morning).

  Any tiny toys, jewelry or makeup they’re receiving.  Also, I wrap everything separately.  More work for me, but then they have LOTS to unwrap.

  Even the wrapped batteries bring smiles, because they’re either guessing what they’re going to get or planning on where to use them. :-)”

This Unexpected (and Affordable) Gift Is My Go-To For Stocking Stuffers

Giving Ornaments as Stocking Stuffers Gift Idea

There’s something to be said for having fun with stocking stuffers—who doesn't love buying funny trinkets and opting for miniature versions of classic gag gifts? But there’s merit in taking a more pragmatic route, too. Small doesn’t have to mean silly. There are plenty of ways to fill your loved one’s stocking with gifts that are genuinely meaningful and practical—and buying them a few Christmas ornaments happens to be a pretty good one.

Ornaments are generally underrated gifts. This may be because we make our wishlists in November, and our immense need for ornaments doesn’t become clear until after Thanksgiving.

Or it could be because we have our eye on so many big-ticket items that smaller necessities fall by the wayside. No matter the reason, ornaments often go unappreciated in the gift department.

But that doesn’t make them any less important.

A good Christmas ornament does a lot of things. It complements the inherent beauty of any Christmas tree, and it ushers in the festivity of the holiday season—these are givens. But a truly great ornament does more than decorate.

It reminds you of the moment you first saw it, the person who gave it to you, and how you felt when you hung it on your tree.

An ornament isn’t just a beautiful bauble—it’s a memory, nestled on a lush evergreen tree, alongside myriad other mementos. 

But a truly great ornament does more than decorate. It reminds you of the moment you first saw it, the person who gave it to you, and how you felt when you hung it on your tree.

It tells a story, captures an experience, and evokes an emotion. And really, what more could you ask for from a stocking stuffer—or any other kind of gift? 

Ready to hop on the ornaments as gifts train? Check out a few of our favorites below.
