Stocking Stuffer Ideas

Pin this post to your Christmas board on Pinterest!

I think for me one of the best parts of Christmas is not the mad frenzy of unwrapping gifts but in our household it is slower paced unpacking of the stocking that were hung by the chimney with care. My children delight in finding the little toys, trinkets and candy that were picked out just for them and fish each item out one by one, exclaiming with delight at their find. Stocking stuffers do not need to be expensive either, many items can be found at the dollar store or dollar spot at stores such as Target. Gifts can be homemade, and some things, like candy can be found at great prices this time of year with coupons and sales.

Holiday Gift Idea

Candycane Playdough

So last week I posted a homemade gift idea for Gingerbread Sugar Scrub and some of the comment over on our Facebook page were folks looking for homemade gift ideas for kids, so I am going to do my darnedest to find some great ideas for homemade gift ideas for folks of all ages…

I was totally going to make this gift idea over the weekend but dispite me driving all over town not a single store where I live seems to carry peppermint oil. So I have ordered some from Amazon and I am totally going to make this for some of the kids on my list for Christmas. I think a jar of this would make for a nice stocking stuffer and give the kids an activity for them to do when they are on holiday break this year.

This gift idea comes from ArtfulParent and you can get the full tutorial and step-by-step instructions on how to make this great homemade gift!

This is very similar to my own recipe for The Best Homemade Play Dough Recipe <<check it out!


Holiday Gift Idea

Cookbook Wrapped In Dishtowel

I am an avid cookbook collector and actually am one of those weird people that read cookbooks like they are novels. Do I always cook the recipes out of them, no, but I love looking at the pictures, reading the stories around the recipes and getting inspired for creating my own dishes.

So when I saw this gift idea over on The Housewife Rookie I just had to share because I know I am not the only one out there who loves receiving cookbooks as gifts. In fact I have a few family members just like me who love cookbooks too and this is on my holiday to-do list for sure!

The Housewife Rookie has this listed as an Inexpensive wedding shower gift but I think it would make for a great holiday gift, birthday gift etc too! Too cute!


Looking for some cookbook ideas? My mother-in-law and I both love any of the series of books from Williams Sonoma,
