Stocking Stuffers

Happy Friday from Rhode Island! I’m here for a press trip with some friends and so excited about how festive it is.

One of my favorite holiday traditions that we do in my family is “secret stocking” where we draw names and have to fill a stocking with $100 worth of stocking stuffers for one adult in the family. Because Santa doesn’t bring us presents anymore (Come on, Santa, get with it!), this is a great way for everyone to get stocking stuffers and I love the element of surprise.

My little brother Jackson (age 8 now!) helps us fill the stockings and deliver them which he takes very seriously.

Buying gifts for my secret stocking is my favorite part of holiday shopping every year! I buy almost all of them during Cyber Week so even though I only spend $100, it ends up being closer to $200 worth of product. I call that a #stackedstocking.

Here are some of my favorite stocking stuffers this season. All small enough to literally fit in a stocking and most under $50. Happy stocking shopping!
