To be honest, pulling out stocking stuffers is probably my favorite part of Christmas. I think it's the surprise factor. Unless you're extraordinarily demanding and a huge brat, I doubt you send your family wish lists for your stocking stuffers. Right? So whether it's a fresh Chapstick, some sweetly scented soaps, or a classic Slinky, you never know what you're going to get. My stockings were always filled halfway with things I needed (socks, bobby pins, etc.) and the other half with goofy gags or gifts I'd probably never think to buy myself. To help you make the most of the stockings you'll be filling this year, I've rounded up a number of stocking stuffers that are either essentials, gags, or gifts that are just nice to have for the home.
