4 Features of a Great Stocking Stuffer
For kids, opening their stockings is a highlight of Christmas—all those little gifts bundled inside—it’s suspenseful, abundant and personal! What’s different about gifts in a stocking from other gifts?
We know a good stocking-stuffer when we see it. It’ll have at least three of these features:
1. Stocking Stuffers are small. The charm is that it fits inside a stocking. Examples? Small figures—decorative or for play.
2. Stocking Stuffers are playful. Even if it’s a practical gift, like socks or underwear, it was designed with a little whimsy or is a favorite brand or style that’s too extravagant at other times of the year.
3. Stocking Stuffers are tactile or visually appealing—something you can enjoy holding or looking at. A special photo or ornament.
4. Stocking Stuffers are aromatic, a taste treat. Even an orange will do! Chocolate, of course, but you already knew that!
Some classic stocking-stuffers: beeswax-based lip balm, handmade soap bars, foot-rub cleansing scrubbers, colorful cookie-cutters in new designs, earrings handmade by local artists, fair-trade chocolate bars, small puzzles, little games.
And, of course, I suggest the Two-Minute Turtle Timer for a delightful stocking-stuffer this holiday season that’s everything but good-tasting! Works for all ages and learning styles. It’s for tooth-brushing and so much more (yoga, starting new habits, hand washing, debates, games...). Free & Fast Shipping.
