Hi.

Welcome to Value Minded Mama. This is my happy place where I document my adventures in style, thrifting, saving money, travel and being a SAHM. We're adding another little love to our brood in November, and we're so excited to become a family of four. Love that you're here! Feel free to check out my social media channels below for more from Value Minded Mama.

Stocking Stuffers for the Whole Family

Stocking Stuffers for the Whole Family

Who else just adores stockings? I love all the different styles, patterns and sizes of stockings these days. In fact, we found some really good ones thrifting in Hilton Head a few years ago and they're what I’m using to decorate my mantel!

 As cute and fun as stockings are, sometimes it can be difficult to figure out what to put in them. For kids, it’s easy to just fill them with candy, but as a parent, do you really want to load your kids up with tons of candy? Probably not. Here is a stocking stuffer gift guide for children and adults to help make the process a little easier, and your life a little less stressful this holiday season.

Don’t forget, you can get really creative with stockings! My mom usually puts a few expensive/nicer items in our stockings too, which makes them just as fun to open (if not more so) than any other gift. Plus, it’s like a never ending bag of fun surprises (for kids and adults)!

 

What are your favorite things to put in stockings? Or what is your favorite thing to receive in a stocking?
