    It’s easy to pick things up throughout the year from the dollar store or dollar section as you’re out and about – then you have a good variety when the time comes!

    Wow what a list you gave there. This is great . We dont always think of all the things that we can put in their stocking instead of the usual candy or fruits – or black coal for those bad boys LOL. You gave some great ideas for all ages. Thanks

    This might sound strange but I always liked the stocking better than the big gifts. And not just because of the candy. During some very lean years in my childhood, a stocking was all my siblings and I got. But that was okay. There was just something fun about what you might find. And I like filling them for others more than big gift shopping too!

    Thank you so much for sharing your great ideas! It’s amazing how I forgot about so many of these wonderful ideas! I would love suggestions for stocking stuffers for men if you have any to share.

    I like the list! Great ideas. I noticed you have a couple things listed twice, card games #2 & #94 as well as bookmark #69 & #84.
    We love giving books as stocking stuffers and home made things such as favorite pictures drawn or taken with a story about our favorite memory we shared with that person. For example, we ask our daughter what was her favorite thing she did with dad this year? Then we get her to draw a picture and tell her dad why that was such a special memory :) great keepsakes and it helps keep the true meaning of Christmas in our home!
    Thanks for sharing your list. I have some additional ideas now on how to fill a stocking for my nephew.

      Well, that’s embarrassing! I even had my husband look over my list before I updated it for this holiday season. I will add a couple unique ideas soon!
