Sometimes the most fun and surprising presents to open are the smallest ones, which is why Christmas stockings are such a wonderful tradition. This year as you’re wondering how to make easy stocking stuffers, turn to small treat bags and stuff them with a few of these simple gifts:
Ideas for Easy Stocking Stuffers:
- Homemade fudge, cut into cubes and sealed into plastic bags to stay fresh. Press cubes into chopped special ingredients to personalize the flavors.
- Homemade Lavender sachets to go in a drawer, under a pillow, or even in unexpected places like a car.
- Lip balm to help with combatting the dry winter weather. Depending on the scent, these can be perfect for kids, women, and men.
- Christmas stickers, which are fun for little ones and make easy seals on thank you cards for adults.
- Crazy crayons made by melting chopped pieces of crayons in mini cupcake pans. Use shaped novelty pans to make crayons in fun shapes.
- Packets of seeds to plant in the spring. Some varieties can even be started indoors right away and moved outside when the weather warms up.
- Scented soaps, which can be handmade if you would like. Just make sure they’re in airtight bags to contain the scents.
- Small activity books, like coloring books for kids and sudoku or crossword puzzles for adults.
- Card games, or just a deck of cards with a fun print on the backs.
- Hot cocoa packets, either in simple flavors or gourmet ones.
A simple assembly line can make the task of gathering stocking stuffers for lots of recipients easy. Just get cute treat bags from Lillian Vernon, put a name tag on each of them, and set them up in a row. Drop an item in each bag every time you get something new!
