Frugal Stocking Stuffers

Stockings can get expensive!!  I still make stockings for the boys, even though they are in their 20's so little toys aren't an option.  Here are some ideas for stockings from the dollar store:

1.  Toothbrush.  You always need one!

2.  Earphones.  Have you ever noticed how often they're lost or broken?

3.  Flashlight.  Hubby insists you can never have too many!

4.  Word Search/Crossword Puzzle Books.  Make them use that brain!

5.  Ornaments.  You can find some really cute ones for a dollar!

6.  Booklights.  Always handy, especially when traveling!

7.  Hairbrush.  You can always use an extra to throw in the glovebox or purse!

8.  Pens.  To use with the puzzle books!

9.  Candy.  By the bag, a great value!

10.  Screwdriver.  Yep, a screwdriver!  How else are you going to get the battery covers off the other gifts?

So there are a few ideas.  The dollar stores have tons of items perfect for stockings.  Stuff away!!!


  1. My dad has always felt the same way about flashlights. I think he has gotten one nearly every year for Christmas. I actually would love earphones, I am tough on those and have to buy myself new ones pretty often (in fact just this morning). Stocking Stuffers is all that I am still missing so far, so was planning on making a run to the dollar stores tomorrow. Thanks for the ideas!

  2. Yay!!! Glad I could help!! (And we have more flashlights than I can count!!)
