Everyone loves to get a Christmas stocking filled with goodies. But if you are the one filling those stockings, you sometimes need a little help figuring out what exactly to put in them. So I have come up with a few ideas.


However, I am in favor of stocking stuffers being something they will find useful and will enjoy-not something that will quickly end up tossed aside and forgotten.


Useful and inexpensive is always a winning combination — no need to break the bank when shopping for stocking stuffers.
