Not everyone stuffs stockings during the holidays, but for those who do and need some inspiration, this post is here to help! Now whether your family/friends enjoy useful sticking stuffers or gag gifts for the laughs, you are bound to find something in this round up to get those stockings filled.
There is always the go to filler option of candy. But their favorite candy, and use it to fill in the extra spaces or even the whole stocking, if they are a candy junky. Next comes gift cards or money. Gift cards are small enough to shove into the bottom of the stocking if you are filling up the rest with gag gifts, for a nice surprise at the end.
Small gifts, like jewelry, stickers, small puzzles, customized temp tattoos, make up, fun cozy socks, pet toys, cookies. Anything that can fit, usually goes when it comes to stockings. One year I even managed to fit mugs with hot chocolate kits into a stocking, complete with chocolate covered candy cane stirrers!
If you have larger stockings you can even make those hot coco mason jars, and pair it with some cold brew coffee for a simple home made iced mocha kit, for all you coffee lovers. For all those tea lovers, make an assorted tea taster and pair it with a specialty honey, so they can stay warm and try new flavors all winter. Do you know someone that loves baking? Throw together some essential recipes and print them out onto note cards and create a tiny cookbook for them to try out! That one is definite ya win win. Cookies for everyone!
Do you have more tech savvy friends or family? Throw some charger cables into their stocking, you can never have to many charging cables. Phone/tablet cases are also a great small and useful stuffer. Protective films for cellphone or tablets, stylists, a nice pair of earphones, and even an external charger that they can take with them on the go. Let’s be honest, no one likes being stuck with dead electronics.
I hope this inspired you to stuff your stockings to the brim! If you have any questions or suggestions of more things to stuff those stockings with, leave them in the comments or tag me on social media @styleastronaut #styleastronaut.
