230 Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Christmas  |  Robyns.World

I love Christmas stockings so I decided to compose a list of stocking stuffer ideas. These are all inexpensive ideas also, no big ticket items on this list just because they are small. Growing up we always had a stocking from Santa plus my Grandma H. always made stockings for the kids that we could open on Christmas Eve as soon as we wanted. Since Grandma H. has passed I have taken on making stockings for the little kids now and I love every minute of it.

If you have other ideas I have missed please add your suggestions in the comments below.
