The hardest thing about christmas is the Stockings!!! Now that my kids are older it's even harder!!! My ds is 15, my dd is 11. Can you help me with ideas for small, inexpensive stocking stuffers???

  • I have three girls, so I do a lot of "accessories" .. usually mittens, hair things, chapstick. Also by Christmas, they usually need a few things for school again, so I get fun pencils and little notebooks and things like that (sharpeners/erasers - little things that fit and are very inexpensive).

  • Cd's, movies, chapsticks, makeup, jewelry, wallet, hair things, anything, I could go on and on.
    We are exact opposites because the stocking are my favorite part.

  • Hit the dollar store and pick up a bunch of little things. The girls is easier I think with nail polish, lipgloss, hair things, beaded jewelry.

  • It really depends on what they are interested in. I'd probably get my daughter some costume jewelry, makeup, hair accessories. You could do gift cards to iTunes, a memory card for their gaming system or camera. I try to avoid super cheap filler stuff, because I know exactly where it is going to end up.... broken in my floor. I figure I might as well spend the same money on a few quality items. KWIM?

  • make-up, manicure set, for boys you could also do movies, cd's, or gift cards to their fav stores.
