A Brilliant Idea for Stocking Stuffers this Year

a brilliant idea to make stocking stuffers easy and fun

Stockings stuffers are always kind of an afterthought for me at Christmas time. I love to focus on the gifts, and it’s usually a few days before Christmas that I suddenly realize I don’t have anything for stockings.

But this year, a reader messaged me a really fun idea that makes it a lot easier and a little more fun.

She said her mom did the five senses for their stockings: something that smells yummy, something to eat, something they’ll listen to, something to see, and something to touch or play with.

I think that’s such a fun idea!

So I’ve rounded up a bunch of easy ideas for each sense, and then a few other fun and useful ideas to toss in the stockings this year.

A few more stocking stuffer ideas:

Smell (soap, body wash, perfume, yummy chapstick, lotion, etc)

Hear (music, DVD, audiobook, tickets to a play or musical)

Taste (dark chocolate, mixed nuts, gum, and an orange!)

See (book, magazine, nail polishsunglasses, my kid’s favorite night light)

Touch (gloves, holiday socks, athletic socks, pom pom hat, card holder, a small toy)

    Love this idea! I find coming up with stocking stuffers so tough every year. Isn’t it enough that us moms have to figure out meaningful gifts? Haha, nope, we also have to fill a large sock for each of our kids as well. This really helps though!

    And I loooove your blog. Seriously, every post is full of such awesome ideas and info! Thank you!
