Useful Stocking Stuffer Ideas That Aren't Junk Or Clutter - Stocking Stuffers they WILL Appreciate

Since our family has grown SO much, we’ve had to minimize things just a bit or else the cost of Christmas just gets ridiculous.

But stocking are NOT something that has been minimized or downsized – everyone LOVES their stocking each year!

So, as a general rule…

Each kid / family member etc can plan on getting:

  1. Something You Want
  2. Something You Need
  3. Something To Wear
  4. Something To Read, and…
  5. Their Stocking

Since I’ve been doing Christmas gifts this way for a few years now, the family is pretty much trained to tell me a few things they want, a few things they need, a few clothing ideas and a few books they’d like to read.

But when it comes to what to put in their stockings each Christmas, that is up to ME.

I got tired of just buying random stuff in order to fill their stockings so I started getting USEFUL stocking stuffers – and they LOVE it.

Especially the grown kids!

One year, I gave all the grown kids a big case of toilet paper, paper towels, laundry detergent, etc (think useful housewarming gifts and items they routinely need to buy)

To my complete surprise, they were SO stinkin’ happy!

I certainly thought those stocking stuffers would be appreciated, but I did NOT think they would be over-the-moon EXCITED to get them!

From there on out, I decided USEFUL stocking stuffers were it.

I wanted to put items in their stockings that they needed, they used… or things that will save them money.

Oddly, it takes a LOT of stress out of the “what do I put in their Christmas stockings this year???” situation I used to find myself in every, single Christmas.
