What to Look For in a Stocking Stuffer

Interests

While you shop, the interests of the person you're shopping for is a great place to start. For example, if you're shopping for a new mom she might appreciate picks related to self-care and relaxation. If it's a long-distance family member or significant other, they're sure to love framed photos and other items that remind them of you and your memories together.

Size

When it comes to stocking stuffers, size is one of the most important factors to consider. Although stockings come in various sizes, you'll want to stick with smaller items that leave room for multiple products to fit at once. If you think some gifts you have in mind are too large, consider if there's a travel-sized version you can go with instead.

Weight

Since stockings will most likely be hanging off a mantle, you'll want to make sure you aren't choosing anything with too much weight. To be safe, consider options that are roughly three pounds or under. That way, you'll be able to add multiple gifts to a stocking without weighing the stocking down too much.

Price

Since stocking stuffers are meant to be supplemental gifts, prince points can be in a wide range. If you're looking for more budget-friendly items, picks like travel candles, cards, and other smaller items are always a safe bet.
