    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.
