Last Minute Stocking Stuffers

One of my favorite traditions that we do as a family is stockings. Since we were little, my sister and I have always opened stockings from Santa first thing in the morning. They're waiting for us outside our bedroom doors, so when Bethany wakes up, she brings them into my room to open. Together, on my bed, we open everything up. Now that Bethany's engaged, we've brought her fiancé in on the fun, so it's a full house in my room Christmas morning. My mom always tells me she has the most fun picking things out for our stockings each year. When we come downstairs for breakfast, she can't wait to hear about all our favorites.

If your family does stockings, too, and you're looking for some last-minute inspiration, look no further. I've gathered some of my favorite gifts from over the years (and some on my wish list this year) below. Bonus: you can buy all items in store, so you don't have to worry about them getting to you in time for Christmas morning.


1. Gloves - I live in Chicago, so gloves are a must-have.
2. AirPod Case - Everyone in my family has slowly jumped on the AirPod train, so cases help us separate our own.
3. Scrunchies - I love that this trend has come back. Kaitlyn Bristowe has some adorable ones or you can find them at your local drugstore.
4. Personalized Ornament - We add to our family tree every year with the different ornaments my parents pick out specifically for each of us.
5. Hot Chocolate Mix - A Christmas afternoon staple in our house.
6. PJ Pants - We get these Christmas Eve each year, but how fun to include them in your stockings!?
7. Fun Game - This year, we're all bringing a different game to play Christmas night.
8. Pens - These gold pens are still some of my favorites!
9. Travel Mug - Early morning meetings call for lots of caffeine.
10. Chocolates - If you haven't had Lindor truffles, you're missing out.
11. Keychain - I still love Friends, so this keychain is perfect for me. Target is great for in-store options.
12. Travel Jewelry Case - Bethany and I love jewelry and are always traveling.
13. Tile - If you're constantly losing your keys, you need this!

Tell me in the comments what your favorite stocking stuffer is!
