30+ Stocking Stuffer Ideas

Christmas is coming but if you’re trying to do it on a budget you may be looking for stocking stuffer ideas that won’t break the bank.  Or you may just be like me and looking for stocking stuffer ideas in general.

As a child growing up my Mum had two stockings for us: one giant one with our main gifts in and one small one to hang.  It ALWAYS had a tangerine in the bottom of it.  I wish I could tell you why but I’m really not sure.  Let me know if anyone knows!!  Anyway, without further ado here’s Stocking Stuffer Ideas.

  2. Hi! I just found your website from your post on the operation christmas child facebook page. (couponing helps me fill the boxes each year) The orange at the toe of your christmas stocking probably comes from a legend of how the tradition started: On christmas eve St. Nick dropped sacks of gold coins down the chimney of a poor family and they landed in socks hanging by the fire to dry. The family woke up to find a christmas gift in their sock! So color of the orange reminds us of the source of the tradition.
