Blogmas Day 10: Stocking stuffers

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day 10! Today I thought I would do a mini gift guide and talk about some ideas for stocking stuffers. When I was growing up and even now my mother does the stockings in my family so over the years I’ve watched what she does and when I started doing Friendsmas with my close friends I took what I had seen her do for so many years and put it into action. If I mention anything specific I will link it down below.

So the first thing I always put in a stocking, no matter who it’s for is candy. This is the time of year for candy and chocolate so it’s a must for me. I do an assortment of different candies but I make sure to put extra of whatever that persons favorite candy.

Next I will at least for the girls is bobby pins and hair ties. It’s one thing that you can never have enough of, they’re either breaking or disappearing or both and it’s always appreciated. Along with that I put in the mini versions, and this works for men and women, of favorite lotions, perfumes/colognes and any other products that person may like or use.

Something that is not only a safe bet but will be definitely appreciated is gift cards. Whether it’s to their favorite store, restaurant or iTunes. A gift card is always a great present.

If you’re looking for something on the tech side there are a couple of things I would recommend. The first is a portable phone charger, I use mine practically every day and it’s such a lifesaver. Mine is Schumacher Electric and I really like them as a brand, the products are top quality. A long charging cable, being able to use your phone while it’s charging is the best and thankfully there are brands that make the long cables.

I have a couple more suggestions and one is for the baker in your life. Last year I did a baking themed stocking for one of my friends and it went down really well. In it I put a bundle of measuring spoons, a mix of mini and full size whisks and spatulas and I even included a candy thermometer and I tied it all together with a ribbon.

For the kids I’ve found that it’s the little things that they like, crayons or markers, stickers, Hot Wheels cars and bracelets/jewelry.

That about wraps it up for this post, if any of you guys are doing a themed stocking for someone let me know what the theme is and how you’re doing it. It may just inspire me.

Until next time, I hope this post was helpful and have fun putting together stockings :).
