I love buying stocking stuffers for my family.  There’s a thrill in going out and looking for unique items that I know each person will enjoy.

When it comes to stocking stuffers I do have a few ‘rules’ I like to follow…

1)  The item has to be something the person probably wouldn’t buy for themselves

2)  I look for stocking stuffers that are fun and whimsical

3)  I like to find an item or two that are really practical

4)  I always add a treat to the stockings like some holiday candy or a favorite snack

Here’s a few of my stocking stuffer picks for 2013!
