In Ultimate Gift Guide, we’re bringing you all the best advice on gifting, whether you need something to share for the holidays, bring to an event, or gift just because!
Stocking stuffers are often the first thing your family members open on Christmas. The stockings — even the ones for your pets — should not only be hung from the mantel with care but also stuffed full with small gifts and treats, both edible and tangible, that they can enjoy throughout the holidays.
We’ve put together a list of our personal favorite stocking stuffer ideas that your family will love to find in their stockings Christmas morning.
Nothing is cozier than a warm mug of hot chocolate on Christmas morning. OK, maybe being wrapped up in a fleece blanket while sipping the cocoa. This Holiday Hot Chocolate Tin Collection includes four festive tins, each filled with a different type of cocoa, making it easy to split between stockings. Warm everyone’s morning with hot chocolate flavors such as peppermint, white chocolate, milk chocolate, and caramel. Just add warm water. Or, for a creamier brew, warm milk. Moustache not included.
Sweeten up Christmas morning with a box of creamy Signature Chocolate Truffles. Choose between classic flavors, such as milk or dark chocolate, coffee, and mint. The chocolate lovers in your life will be thanking you all day (while they wipe the chocolate off their face).
Make Christmas morning a Moose Munch® party with these Moose Munch® bars, popcorn, and bark. This collection comes with three different flavors of chocolate bars, four bags of popcorn, and one bag of milk chocolate Moose Crunch® bark, which means easy mixing and matching between stockings. These make for fun snacks throughout the holiday week, although we don’t see it lasting that long.
A special day calls for exceptional coffee. Harry’s Christmas Blend mixes butterscotch and caramel for a flavorful holiday brew. The lucky recipient of this stocking stuffer will be happy to sit back and enjoy a warm mug while the others in the house open a flurry of presents around them.
Keep the ornament keepsakes a-coming with this adorable Ornament Cookie Gift. This gift comes with four decorative tin ornaments that contain the greatest holiday treat — cookies (two dozen, in fact). Enjoy raspberry-filled, tree-cutout shortbread and vanilla shortbread decorated with red sanding sugar. When you’ve wiped the crumbs from your ugly Christmas sweater, hang your new ornament on the tree.
Counter all that sugar with some fresh fruit (who are we kidding, there’s still candy involved) from this Deluxe Holiday Fruit Wreath. Stick one of these delicious fruits or candies in the toe of the stockings to fill up that awkward space and carry on a classic Christmas tradition. If you have fewer stockings than fruit and candy, the rest will look great arranged in a bowl or on a platter.
Surprise that special guy with a gift he can use after the holidays. This Solid Cologne Trio Gift Set from Bespoke Post — an online shop that sells uniquely cool products for men — comes with three .35-ounce tins full of the tantalizing combo smells of cypress and juniper, bergamot and vetiver, and cedarwood and amber. With a more subtle scent than standard spray cologne, this will surely go down as one of the best stocking stuffers of the year. Never underestimate the power of smelling awesome.
Add a little chocolatey crunch to your stockings this year with Simply Chocolate’s Holiday Malted Milk Balls Jar. This delightful gift comes sealed in a reusable quart jar decorated with a sweet holiday message and packed with gourmet malted milk balls. The challenge is to see who can catch the most malt balls in their mouth!
