We love stockings in our house. It’s one of our favorite things about giving gifts at Christmas. We usually use oversized wool socks then stuff them to the brim with fun things. They look like leggings by the time we’re done with them.
It’s almost like we have a competition in our house to see how full you can stuff other people’s stockings. Of course, the majority of the stocking is chocolatey goodness, but there are other fun goodies to be had too.
I’ve finally convinced my husband to let us open the stockings on Christmas eve.
Open stockings Christmas Eve, and open presents Christmas day. Makes perfect sense to me!
It drags out the festivities AND that way the kids get to enjoy everything in a more relaxed way. And it’s one day less that I have to keep a secret. I am HORRIBLE at keeping good secrets. If I have a gift to give someone that I am really excited about, I want to give it to them right away!! I have a hard time waiting until Christmas DAY. Getting to open stockings on Christmas eve alleviates some of my excited-about-gift-giving anxiety. 😂
While it’s fun to fill stockings, sometimes it’s easy to run out of ideas, so I’ve compiled a list of some fun stocking stuffers under $1 (geared toward us ladies!).
Also, why is it that Christmas shopping for guys is so stinking expensive? Finding stocking stuffers under $1 for guys was pretty much impossible. A little frustrating. Anyways, you can still start in on gathering little things for stockings this early in the season! It’s already the middle of November folks, Christmas season is here!

What are some of your favorite stocking stuffers? I have to confess that sometimes I’m a little cliche about the gifts I give, and I’m not creative! I love hearing ideas from other people. If you want to find a list of fun decorative signs to give as Christmas gifts, check here!
Please throw some great ideas at me! I’m running low on gift ideas!
