The Perfect Stocking Stuffers

One of my favorite parts about Christmas is stockings! When I was younger, my parents had a rule. We couldn’t wake them up until at least 8am on Christmas morning (we’re a family of sleepers). But, whenever my siblings and I woke up, we were allowed to open our stockings and our gifts from each other while we waited.

Every year, the 4 of use drew names, so we only had to buy a gift for one other person. On Christmas morning, while my parents were still snoozing away, we would gather around our mini tree in the upstairs hallway to open our stockings and our sibling gifts. It is one of my favorite childhood Christmas memories. So, as an adult, I want to make sure opening the stockings is fun for my family as well.
Stocking stuffers can be hard to tackle. You’ve already spent an arm and a leg on Christmas presents, and now you have to stuff everyone’s stockings too? With what?

The key to stocking stuffers is equal parts small gifts, candy, snacks, and trinkets. You really don’t want to break the bank, given that the presents under the tree probably already did that, but you still want them to be fun and festive!
We shop for stocking stuffer at Big Lots! because they have just about everything you can think of for a great price! They have toys, trinkets, Christmas candy, snacks, and more! It’s a stocking stuffer heaven. We were able to travel the whole store while looking for our stocking the stuffers. The toys, the home goods, entertainment, and grocery.
Here are some things we were able to pick up:
  • Toys for Sawyer
  • Lots of Candy
  • Mini Martinelli’s
  • Smoked Salmon
  • An Elmo Pillow
  • DVDs
  • Coffee Mugs
  • Snacks
  • A Fuzzy Blanket


We were completely set to stuff the stockings for all 3 of us! Everything was very easy to find and the employees were so helpful during our stocking stuffer search. Big Lots! is definitely the best place to shop for Christmas Gifts.



To make a perfect stocking you have to make sure it has a little bit of everything. They should all be smaller gifts so that they can fit inside the stocking. Small toys, yummy Christmas candies, snacks, etc. I love opening my stocking and then snacking on my chocolates while we open presents.


I can’t wait to open our stockings on Christmas morning?
