  • Christmas Stocking Stuffers!

    Hey Everyone!
    I went to the mall earlier today and was noticing that Bath&Body and other stores are starting to carry Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers pretty early this year. Does any one have good ideas on what to put in the stockings?


    So far I have some small bath and body lotions and candy canes but I need some more items. Any ideas

    I am making 30 stockings and the budget for each stocking is about 20 dollars.

    Well, I don't know if you are making all of your stockings the same, or if you are making them differently for different people, but I would try your local 99 cent store. It's an easy way to get a lot of things for cheap, and sometimes they have some real deals! For example, I was in charge of making easter baskets for the little ones in my family one year--on a tight budget-- and was able to get everything from candy to easter books to toys etc....
    You can also try local craft stores-- you can find really unique and cheap locally made ornaments and stuff sometimes...

        Not to toot my own horn, toot toot, but at guidedogsofthedesert.org you can get a calendar for $10 with cute puppies. Pearl is the December pup and then two more times!

        You could do candy. My dad does citrus to take up space. And socks.

        We do each others stockings. I always get my brother. This year he gets a handmade stocking, and I have no idea what to fill it with other than "no knit stuff!" I made him Cheez-it coasters...(orange fabric and bating oh and a lot of patience!)

                The prettiest dog ever, Katon, is October. He's a black lab, but hundreds upon thousands of years ago, when labs were first created they were made from rotweilers and every so often some of the rot coloring comes up. Katon has what looks like flame tattoos coming up his arms on a black lab. Sweetest dog too. Oh! And there's a dog at Disneyland picture! We got ours today so I am like "everyone go get one! It's cute!"

                              Yeah it depends on the store as to how good it is. There's a Dollar Tree that recently opened near my work. It's big, clean and great variety!

                                  Small rodents are sometimes a special surprise.

                                        A severed foot is the perfect stocking stuffer.
