Classic Stocking Stuffers

December 16, 2011

Stockings can be stuffed with just about anything these days, but this post is going old-school, with classic toys and treats.  These items have been around a long time and they still delight people young and old.

Something beautiful…

A Snowglobe from Vienna, made by a company who has been creating them since 1900.  The 25mm and 45mm sizes are a perfect fit for stockings.

Something Edible…

There are many tasty treats we take for granted these days that, historically, have been hard to get and, therefore, treasured.  When I was little, my siblings and I always had something edible in our stockings and, no matter how common the item, it always felt special because it was mine.


These little gems are at their best in the winter months. I can't get enough of them!

Nuts! Especially these…

Theo Chocolate Holiday Pack

Anything from Theo Chocolate will be a guaranteed hit, I promise.

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to open my stocking on Christmas morning.  It is like finding a treasure chest without having to follow a map.  What are you hoping to get this year?  And what are you giving that you are particularly excited about? Any fantastic ideas to share?
