How to Stuff a Stocking

When You Have a hard Time Thinking of Ideas

Although stocking stuffers are a really fun part of the Christmas tradition for many families, there's always someone for whom we struggle to find stocking stuffer ideas. This is especially true if that someone cannot eat candy or nuts or fruit. Maybe your Uncle George has diabetes or Auntie Marge is allergic to nuts. Do you really know what size socks they wear? Do you really feel comfortable buying them underwear?

I have gathered some ideas for stocking stuffers for you to peruse. Of course, these are just a few stocking stuffer ideas, but maybe one or two will appeal to you and help you fill the Christmas stockings of those hard-to-please relatives.

Tool Ideas for Stocking Stuffers

Little Tools For All Those Little Jobs

These tools are just the right size to fit into a Christmas stocking. And look at how handy they can be! Small tools to fix electronics or those pesky pharmacy glasses that keep losing their ear handles. I know I'm not the only one whose glasses seem to break a lot!

A flashlight is always a welcome gift. Great for power outages or to keep in your car in case of emergencies. You could even add a tag looking forward to next summer's camping trip.

MultiTools are fun for the gadget lover. You just never know when you might need to fix something that's broken, and having the proper tool for the job at your fingertips can save you hours rummaging through an overflowing drawer or tool kit. 

Oh, you have one of those at your house, too?

Is there someone in your house who is challenged when easing the car into the garage and may need a little assistance? The Ultrasonic Sensor Parking Alert may help.

The Zipit Clamshell Opener will probably come in handy on Christmas morning, especially if you have kids and need to help them open their new toys. It can be infuriating to struggle with those plastic coverings while a child is jumping up and down in front of you, bursting with excitement and a little annoyed with your slowness at getting the package open.

Your spouse will appreciate a little help, too, opening those pesky plastic clamshells. (Why do they package things to make them so hard to open?)

By sticking one of these Zipit Clamshell Openers into someone's stocking, you can make everyone's Christmas morning happier, not to mention delegate the job of opening the plastic clamshells to the lucky recipient of your generosity.

Aren't you glad you thought to stick this in Uncle George's stocking?

Kitchen Gadget Ideas for Stocking Stuffers

Everyone Eats Sometimes!

Add a little fun to someone's cooking experience by sticking a couple of these cute kitchen gadgets into their Christmas stocking. Animal House kitchen supplies are whimsical and nice to hold. They play with the idea that our minds can see shapes in most things we use -- they just make the shapes more obvious.

Gadgets like the toucan can opener or the shark paring knife will be conversation starters for years to come.

And what about that Monkey Peeler? Won't that get someone who adores peeling potatoes to break into a fit of giggles?

The Shark Bottle Opener may be appropriate for all the thirsty sharks in your life. Maritime relatives and friends would appreciate the Shark Bottle Opener, too.

The Animal House Woodpecker Scissors are really cute. A person who loves crafts or sewing would enjoy getting a pair of woodpecker scissors. Woody Woodpecker fan in the house? They'd love a pair, too.

I have tried the garlic zoom and have to tell you that preparing garlic has never been so much fun! Imagine driving your garlic around the counter. You can pretend you're working when really you are playing with your cars. Kids love to "help," too, when you let them take a turn chopping the garlic. Be careful, though. The blade inside the Garlic Zoom is very sharp and so the car should be opened only by grown-ups.

Now isn't there someone on your stocking stuffer shopping list who would love one of these kitchen gadgets in their stocking this Christmas?

I think my entire family needs that Ultrasonic Parking Sensor Alert. We don't have any big malls where I live - which is probably good for this absent-minded group. But our little Main Street Shopping area can confuse us! We get to talking with neighbors and forget where we parked. Or did I take the truck? Oh Man, I've been looking for the car!
