Save yourself the agony of what to place under the tree; the stockings are where the party’s at. Sure, stocking stuffers are meant to be cheap thrills, but they’re the gifts that steal the limelight. Look to these ideas for memorable stocking stuffers they’ll talk about well into 2013.
No holiday is complete without puffy, pillowy Peeps. These Christmas trees, $2.07, are a festive treat, and these reindeer versions are Rudolph-approved. Grown-ups deserve something sweet too; these biscotti, $2.99, come in Santa, snowman, Christmas tree and gingerbread designs. Christmas Story fans will eat up this Oh Fudge fudge, $5.99, while those who didn’t make the nice list can
console themselves with coal candy, $4.49.
Bath and Body
Give an indulgent aromatherapy session in their very own shower with this shower burst, $4.25, or a mini facial with these cucumber and green tea extract eye pads, $9.99. Beauty is in the eye-or lips-of the beholder, with this mood color-changing lipstick, $2.99.
Want more spoof than spa? Keep their act squeaky clean with soap in wacky scents, like eggnog ($5.99) chocolate chip cookie $4.49, gummy bear $7.99 or beer $4.99. Can’t get enough hygienic hijinks? Go for bacon or cupcake toothpaste, $5.49 each, or floss that tastes like cupcakes, pickles, or salad (for New Year’s resolutions’ sake).
Everyone and their grandma has a smartphone these days, so these gifts are sure to please. Spring for iPhone magnets, $5.25, an adorable iPhone cat case, $6.49, or if Nana’s the one grandma without a smartphone, a digital photo keychain, $9.95.
Kids will love making their own gingerbread men or nativity scenes with these stickers, $3 each. Wind-up toys are a classic; stay seasonal with snowmen , $2.59 and penguins, $4.99, or irreverent with a racing granny and grandpa duo, $8.99. Nostalgic for stocking stuffers of your youth? Opt for a paddleball, Jacob’s ladder, slinky, sliding whistle, or Rubik’s cube.
