Stocking Stuffer Ideas

Digg!
Well, folks today we are one week away until Christmas Eve. I know there are some folks who like to do last minute shopping, but whether you are trying to cross folks off your list now or wait until next Wednesday, everyone needs stocking stuffer ideas. So, I've come across a few things to suggest that might help out with especially difficult people.


Stocking Stuffers 2008


Technology
My first suggestion is to get a digital key chain. The digital frames that are out are really cool, but can run you over $25 for the models I've seen. I've seen in a number of ads where you can get a digital key chain for $14 to $20. These can be purchased at Wal Mart, Target, and Macy's. With these being portable, it is a great way to have current pictures of the family.

Paper
Another suggestion is a magazine subscription. There are so many different subjects to choose from that you should be able to find something for everyone. One new magazine subscription I've seen out that looks intriguing is the new Food Network Magazine. If you've got a Nanna or Mimi that is hard to shop for then this subscription might be right up your alley.


One other magazine subscription is one called The Family Handyman. A few years ago dh learned about this magazine from someone at work and subscribed to it. He found it an interesting magazine.


Young Children
I have to say that getting stocking stuffers for a very young infant and a two year old has been a bit of a challenge. But, one thing that I found that was so cute to use this year are little rubber ducks. Sawyer loves playing with them in the bath tub. We actually have rubber ducks as his bathroom theme. In the infant section at Wal Mart, they have the cutest holiday rubber ducks. They had three different ones. One is a Santa, another a Christmas tree duck, and a Snowman duck.

Pampering & Health
As y'all know, I'm a huge fan of things from Bath & Body Works. B&BW has been running a lot of great sales. With the cold weather here and the heat running, dry skin is such an issue. A few years ago I discovered the sugar scrubs B&BW sells. I recently purchased some and it has really helped my skin feel better. They sell it in a number of different scents.

BB&W has also had their antibacterial soaps on sale. These make a great gift since we are in flu and cold season. Along with the antibacterial soaps, the little antibacterial hand sanitizers make a great gift too.


So, these are just a few suggestions for you to consider as you finish up your holiday shopping. Or, you could consider a Jelly of the Month Club subscription. As Eddie says in Christmas Vacation, "Clark, its the gift that keeps on giving."

Happy shopping and be sure to check back for more holiday posts this week.

Great suggestions for stocking stuffers! For grownups, I like to put in a can of black olives, capers, or some kind of pickle the person likes. I don't know why or when I started doing it.

Your cookies look amazing! I can almost taste them from here!
