How to do Christmas on a (very) tight budget: Stuff Stockings Sparingly

Before I get started, how much do you love that picture?? Adorable.

I love stockings. They're one of the few things I love receiving more than I love giving around Christmas time. Unfortunately it's really easy to go overboard with stockings and spend a lot of money. That's why you should stuff stockings sparingly.

I don't mean that you should give people a half-empty stocking! That's definitely no fun. Not exactly. There are things you can put in a stocking that take up a lot of space, or are useful or consumible. Rather than write this post out, I thought I'd make a list instead of my favorite, yet cheap, stocking stuffers!

  • Candy!
  • Coffee
  • Socks (always useful)
  • Candles
  • Lip balm or fun lipstick
  • Razor cartridges (OK so this isn't cheap, but they are definitely useful!)
  • A favorite type of cookie (my mom always gives my dad Mint Milanos because he loves them!)
  • Movie tickets
  • Candy-canes filled with M&Ms or other candy
What are your suggestions for a good stocking stuffer?
