Stocking Stuffers

When I was younger, I used to be equally as excited to see what was going to be in my stocking on Christmas morning. We don't have a fireplace in our house, nor any sort of mantel, so our stockings were laid upright on the couch...but it still worked. Honestly, it wouldn't have been a Gariano Christmas if something wasn't a bit off about it.

I remember my stocking being filled with different sorts of candies, maybe some sort of toys or playing cards that I was interested in at the time. My brother and I haven't had stockings for years, but my family still believes in the small gifts, mostly because my brother and I normally don't ask for any big gifts and haven't since I got my guitar and he got some sneakers that he's probably since sold.

Stocking stuffers also make great gifts for roommates, co-workers, or friends of friends who might not be the closest to you, but you still feel obligated to exchange gifts with them. If I had a stocking this year, these are definitely some of the things I wouldn't mind seeing peeking out on Christmas morning.

1. Chocolate
2. Nail polish
3. Coffee or tea
4. Picture frames
5. Lotion
6. Bath Bombs
7. Rollerballs
8. Giftcards (Yep, I went the cop-out route. I LOVE gift cards to Target and Starbucks).
9. Tech Gloves
10. Scarves

What's your go-to stocking stuffer?
