Stucking stuffers have never been the easiest for me even though they are fun. I don’t even know if they have ever been easy for anyone trying to do it straight from the head.
I find that I am always getting stocking stuffers willy nilly at the last minute. And I always end up disappointing the kids. And I am very sure I am not the only one facing this.
So! Here are some ideas if you are like me, but this time you want to do it ahead of time and have some things that aren’t going to break in a few minutes, hopefully.
Better yet, they are all on Amazon and you can order them from your desk.
