We have a few general rules when selecting stocking stuffers. They can’t be too big or heavy and they should be a bit unexpected. In this age of wish lists, which make gift giving a snap, we lose some of the personal touch that comes with selecting a gift for a loved one. The stocking is the perfect place to put your spin on gifts. Read on for our favorite stocking stuffers this year!
