Stockings are one of my favorite Christmas traditions.  I look forward to them just as much as I do the gifts and I love shopping for fun stocking stuffers too!

Stockings have been a huge part of our family Christmas traditions for as long as I can remember.  On my mom’s side of the family we all have HUGE (as in, 30″ tall) stockings that have been handmade.  And once in awhile, there are shopping bags added on the side because it won’t all fit!

For our little family. We stick to the regular sized stockings, but it’s still a favorite tradition and one of my favorite things to shop for.  I love searching for the perfect little gifts that will bring a smile to my family’s faces.  The little gifts really are sometimes the best!

There’s always the fun little “gag” gift, like a bag of coal or silly clown nose in some of the stockings.  Usually the guys, because, let’s be honest.  Their stockings can be the hardest to fill!  Plus, in my family at least, all the guys are a big tease, so they deserve that coal more than the ladies!  Haha!

I definitely hit up the dollar spot and dollar store for some stocking stuffers.  We also add some nice gifts too!  I shop for them all year, especially if I find a cute vintage item that someone will love or a great sale on one of their favorite items.

Tip: Plan ahead for stocking gifts in your Christmas budget.  The years that I remember to set aside money for stocking gifts are the years I have the most fun shopping for them!

Our family knows that if they ask for a gift for Christmas that is really small, it may wind up in their stocking instead of under the tree.  Most of all, we just have a lot of fun with them!

I’ve had a lot of requests for stocking stuffer ideas this year, so here is a round-up of some ideas that I know my family loves.  Like I said, I bargain hunt for gifts throughout the year, so some of these are just suggestions of ideas!
