How to Make Easy Stocking Stuffers with Treat Bags

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!
