I love stocking stuffers. I love buying them and I love receiving them. Even as a child I always saved my stocking for last because I knew that it would be stuffed with great goodies. In the toe there would be the traditional orange in the toe followed by candy and small gifts. It is the small gifts that make the stocking so fun to open.
Do you know why we put an orange in the toe of Christmas stockings? Saint Nicholas heard about an old man who didn’t have enough money to marry his three daughters. Saint Nicholas knew that the man wouldn’t accept charity so he had to come up with a clever way to give to him. One night he tossed a bag of gold through the old man’s open window. The gold landed in a stocking that was hung by the chimney to dry.
I know, I know…it’s not even Thanksgiving yet. But, you know you need to get started on your Christmas shopping. So, in the spirit of Christmas, here is a list of original stocking stuffers for all ages:
Movie or show tickets
Car phone charger
Business card holder
USB Thumb Drive
