100 Stocking Stuffer and Gift Ideas

stockings

I feel like people go only two ways with presents- they either have hundreds of ideas for everyone, or none, no matter how well they know the person. Since Christmas is coming up, I thought it would be valuable to those out there who have no idea what to get people for stocking stuffers or little gifts!

First of all, what are stocking stuffers? The tradition came about from a legend about St Nicholas who was believed to have helped three poor daughters without dowries by throwing bags of gold in their drying stockings above the fire.

From this, the tradition of stocking stuffers came about in the form of oranges to resemble the gold and good fortune. From here, this has developed into small gifts to fill the stocking instead. For example, in Russia, for my family, we get sweets every day from December 1st to 31st for being good, but in England stocking stuffers are usually only for Christmas.

So, lets get to it. Here are one hundred ideas for stocking stuffers (that could double up as gifts!)
