Seems I am the "idea gal" in our family when it comes to stocking stuffers. I like to find cool, different and fun items to use as stocking stuffers at Christmas. Of course, I mix these in with candy, fruit, nuts and more traditional stocking stuffer items.
My husband calls me "Mrs. Claus" and my mom gave me a sweatshirt one year that said "Get the hell out of my way, I'm Christmas Shopping!" The thing is, I need to be organized. Before I go out shopping, I already know what I want. I order a lot online anymore and it saves me from fighting holiday traffic and frantic crowds. Very efficient and I love efficient shopping!
On that note, I thought I would share my online articles with ideas for stocking stuffers for most of your family members. These are tried and true or stocking stuffers I am planning to get this season. Even if you don't like any of my ideas, they might give seed to an idea all your own!
Setting a budget for your stocking stuffers is the best way to make sure you don't go overboard. I usually include 3 or 4 of the items suggested in my articles and finish filling stockings with filler items like candy, toothbrushes, lip balm and the like. Take a look at the suggestions in the article links below (divided by recipient). Maybe they'll start calling you Mrs. Claus too! (if they already don't!)
