What's your favorite stocking stuffer?



For me shopping for presents is easier then coming up with creative stocking stuffer's.

My favorite is   

But after that I'm at a loss?

What are your favorites for teens or Husbands?

My mom puts all kinds of travel sized stuff, mini stuff, hair bands, post-its, colored pens - nothing that costs more than a buck or two but very random.

My favorite is always chocolate coins. my mom always put them in ours, and her mom did for her too!

The Chocolate Orange is indeed a thing of beauty.

Have you tried Terry's Chocolate Raspberry?

Ooh I miss the peppermint Chocolate Orange. I havnet done a stocking in a long time but growing up depending on our age we would get anything from candy,small toys to money,make up,hair things, erasers,batteries for the toys we would open..anything really.

I need to bring back the stocking to our house! We stopped doing it when we moved here.

Stocking stuffers are hard. The dollar bins help. I usually put socks in my hubby's stockings. The teens are hard.

Hi there! Hope this finds you well into the holiday spirit, and doing well!
Stocking stuffers can be tricky. My mom use to put fruit and nuts. Yuk! Some candy is good though. The minis are always goo too, razors, lotions, earrings, nail polish....I would put cd's or a movie too. Good luck!

My favorite stocking stuffer is anything chocolate!! Love the fireplace!

Ina in Alaska said...

Hubby got Birthday and Christmas present when I paid for the corner shower insert at Loews!! So maybe he will get some razors and soaps and body cream in his stocking! xoxo

Ina in Alaska said...

Oh and one more thing. We have a tradition of getting a new toothbrush in the stocking too.... boring, but practical.

I don't do stockings because I can never figure out what goes in them...

I am a fan of useful stocking stuffers for adults -- The Container Store is full of fun gadgets that actually make life easier (they even have great ones for the hubbys). Maybe when you're home in Utah you can check them out. As for teenagers, I like things that remind them that they are still kids without being so young that they won't enjoy them -- for example, flavored lip balms, a Pez dispenser with a favorite character for the head, cute socks. And I agree with many of the others fun pens/pencils and hair accessories ar always winners.

Tough question - when I was young, we got sweets and fruits (my fave was marzipan), but I guess that's to dull nowadays :-)

Btw: Thanks for Google Friend signing in on my blog! Always great to meet new bloggers and welcome over to Europe..... yea, while I'm at it: Welcome to Oslo Blog Gathering 2010 too :-)

Mama Zen said...

I love that chocolate orange!

For my husband, I usually put in a gift card or two.

Nancy Campbell said...

New pens. Never fails to please.

Kristina P. said...

I love chocolate, but I'm not a big fan of orange and chocolate together.

Joyce said...

I fill Gary's up with dark chocolats, a small desk calendar for work, cologne, CD, etc... I try to find some fun stuff one time an ornament of Kelly, another time I ordered a small scented bottle to add to the toilet bowl after use to give a nice scent. I'm sure you will come up with some great ideas. xo

I get the kids some candy (of course) & also new toothbrushes & toothpaste. For some reason it's more exciting when it comes out of a stocking from Santa. :)

For the big kids: iTunes gift cards are a fave in our house.

Like others have said, I go for replenishing all the travel-size accoutrements (shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, hairspray, etc.) especially handy since you can't fly with anything over 3 oz. anymore. The teens always seem to appreciate new ipod earphones and a can of their favorite soda (or drink). Hubby always gets a summer sausage (it's a tradition) to eat Christmas week with cheese and crackers plus some nifty gadget (i.e. mini mag light, pocket tape measure, travel tool). Restoration Hardware at Trolley Square always has cool stuff.

Everyone here has his/her favorite candy for the stocking. I like to also put stockings in the stockings, haha (they take up spaced.) I put travel-sized stuff in, too. Because of tradition, I also throw in an orange or apple to make the kids laugh.

It gets harder as they get older. Wish I knew. Eventually people have everything they need.

Nuts in May

Alix said...

We don't do stockings. Aren't we awful? I mean, we hang stockings for decoration, but don't fill them. What does that say about our Christmas spirit? Or more appropriately... our lack thereof. LOL.

Lora said...

We always got school supplies, blank tapes, travel sized products (always good stuff, not the crap we normally have- like salon products instead of drugstore brands), lipgloss, little toys like rubiks cubes and slinkies and playdoh- fun for all ages!, those stretchy gloves, a journal or datebook for the next year, floppy discs (I'm sure people don't want those anymore just like the blank tapes are probably out!), a watch or earrings or something similar, gum and candy of course. Lots of gum when we got older. Fresh breath is important in high school. And an orange, always an orange. Usually a paperback.

Stockings were a huge deal in our house! I pick up little things thru the year to toss in there.

Oh! Pocket packs of kleenex is something I could use right now!

Just a Plane Ride Away said...

Yes! The chocolate orange!!!!! My husband's family always did pop tarts, LOL.

Iva said...

Ferrer Rocher!

Joanna Jenkins said...

Nail polish in fun colors, silly tooth brushes and peanut brittle :-)

I'm catching up on my reading and all your posts from the past week are great!

Love you,
