The year is winding down and you’re probably adding the finishing touches to your holiday plans. That means it’s time to hang the stockings on the mantel and get crafty with what you fill them with. Stockings are the best way to get creative with gifts for the whole family and there are so many options to choose from. Below are some ideas that will be sure to spark some festive inspiration to have the best creative stocking stuffers for this year.
Stocking stuffers for the kids
The best way to get creative with your children’s stockings is to add an element of surprise. Most kids expect to get normal things in their stockings, like peppermints and chocolate, however, this year, get creative and add some small toys. For the younger kids, some of the best things to include are fun stickers, art supplies or a story book. If you have older kids, add playing cards, a festive keychain or sneaker balls. By giving your children alternatives to candy in their stockings, you are not only able to limit the amount of junk food they are consuming this holiday season, but also giving them gifts that they can enjoy for months to come.
Stockign stuffers for him
For the special man in your life, you may want to put more thought into their stocking stuffers and give him something that he will use, or maybe even needs. Some of the best things to stick in his stocking could be a membership to a subscription service like Harry’s, so he can stock up on razor blades and more on a regular basis. Maybe you’d like to add a few other useful items like a small flashlight or a portable phone charger. This way they can be prepared in any situation, as these are simple gifts that are useful any time of the year.
Stocking stuffers for her
The lovely lady in your life may deserve the world, so add some special sentimental touches to her stockings. Some of the best things to include are her favorite make-up products, fuzzy socks or a scarf. Putting these gifts in her stocking will allow her to feel beautiful and cozy. If you want to really pull at her heartstrings, get her a personalised keychain with her name on it, so she can add a personal touch to her keyring.
For an added bonus, get stockings that are personal to each person, this way you can create a tradition of using the same stocking each year and look forward to hanging up each on the mantle! Now it’s time to fill your stocking with our creative stocking stuffers and more…and have a Happy Holiday!
