Stockings can spring up wonderful surprises during holiday seasons. Small and inexpensive presents stuffed in the stockings on Christmas Eve are referred to as stocking stuffers. Stocking stuffers may often rob the limelight from the big gifts as people eagerly look forward to these small yet special and significant gifts.

Traditionally stocking stuffers were hung over the fireplace but in houses without a fireplace they are hung on the Christmas tree or any other interesting place within the house. Few people make mock fireplaces and hang the stocking stuffers there. Unwrapping gifts from the stockings can be fun for kids and grown-ups. Selecting gifts for stocking stuffers is just as fun as receiving them and opening them. This Christmas season; make it interesting for you and the receiver by going that extra mile of choosing the right gifts for stocking stuffers.

As per tradition, stockings were filled with candy, fruits and nuts. Stockings these days are stuffed with a variety of gifts - toys, household items, hand made soaps, gadgets or any item of interest. Stocking stuffers are also known as stocking fillers.


Stocking fillers


  • Choose the right size of stockings so that you can accommodate adequate number of gifts.

  • Do not buy gifts that are too large and are difficult to accommodate in the stockings.

  • Try and wrap the gifts if you have enough time on your hands.

  • Decide on the people whom you are going to gift and segregate them according to their age groups. Choose gifts that will suit their age.

  • All gifts chosen for stocking stuffers need not be expensive, choosing the right ones makes it more meaningful.
