I've never been real big on lots of candy for stockings or baskets, so I have to think real hard for cute stocking stuffers. So if you're looking for some last minute stocking stuffers here are a few ideas. Santa always brings toothbrushes, toothpaste, bodywash, deodorant, dental floss and shampoo. Then he gets a little creative and tries to think of things that they love. For Steve and dad, they get stuff for their trucks and golf.
Air fresheners from Bath and Body works are what I'm liking right now, they come in a variety of colors and scents.
Tees, brushes, ball markers and tire gauges are great ideas, things they can never have too many of. I also like getting $30 worth of iTune cards and splitting them up. Everyone gets to pick their own music and I don't have to listen to everyone else's.
The boys get a few things from the dollar section at Target, like a notebook and an airplane spoon.
Another fun idea are beads and bracelets. I found cute sports bead and silkies from Hobby Lobby.
Silly bandz are another big idea for our little ones. They can be kept on one of these silkies necklaces or even a binder clip.
Special candy is the only candy I'm putting in them this year. I found vampire fangs and mustaches made from wax. I know as a kid I loved them! Candy necklaces and some kind of gum.
Sunflower seeds and nuts for my big boys.
I love pens, really, really love pens, so I always try to find a fun pen for everyone, one with google eyes or something crazy or kid-like.
A lottery ticket or two or maybe a homemade coupon or two for that special man or men in your life. I know my little one would love a coupon for a date with mommy to the movies or out to eat.
My thought on filling a stocking is fill it with things they don't get all year long. Make it fun and enjoyable, with things they'll love and to show them you loved doing it.
Have a great day, and happy stuffing! Love, BJ
