    Gift Cards

    These are a great route to go for a kid (big or small) who has a favorite store or pastime. Love to read? Go with one from an indie bookstore. Big on Starbucks? Gift them $10 or $20 worth of lattes. With everything from iTunes to your favorite restaurants available, you really can’t go wrong!

    Lottery tickets

    Most people don’t take the time to play the game of chance. Lottery tickets are a fun and festive way to gamble and (maybe) win big!

    Who doesn’t love candy? Many of us are partial to stuffing stockings with chocolate and candy canes. One family member even gets a whole stocking full of starbursts!

    We suggest everything from dental items (new toothbrush, floss, toothpaste), to bubble bath, travel lotions and hand sanitizers. These practical mini-gifts always come in handy!

    Christmas Story Books

    What better way to celebrate the holidays with little ones that to start a tradition of giving holiday-themed books? You even get the added bonus of reading the story together on Christmas morning.

    Winter Accessories

    It’s the perfect time of year to throw in new scarves, gloves, and hats. These items often get lost over the season, so back ups are great because you can never have too many!

    Little Dolls

    Another great gift for little ones, pint-sized dolls (like little Disney princesses) make great stocking stuffers! They’re also great to take on road trips, since they don’t take up too much room.

    We hope we’ve helped you narrow down what to stuff in your loved ones’ stockings this holiday. Remember to keep it low-pressure and have fun!
