Super Stocking Stuffers for $10 and under

As a child, my stocking was typically filled with lots oranges and apples. My parents were "Children of the Great Depression," so they didn't spend more than a few pennies on anything in my stocking.
With my own family, I've always tried to save money, but I also want them to find special gifts in their stockings as well. Santa wouldn't have it any other way!!

Over the years, I've found several things at the Dollar Store: inexpensive chocolates, simple toiletries, etc. But there's always room to add at least one or two nicer gifts -- and still stick to your budget! And this can be a task when you have multiple stockings to fill like I do! Here are few suggestions, many found on Polyvore:

Williams-Sonoma Peppermint Creme Bites, $3.95, www.william-sonoma.com

Instant Snow, $4.95, www.zgallerie.com

Less Monday, More Coffee - mug, $10, http://www.chapters.indigo.ca

Bliss, Lemony Trinkets, $10 at www.sephora.com

White Tea & Mint Travel Candle, $6.25, www.blisshomeanddesign.com

Twizzerman, Pink Perfection Nail File, $5, www.sephora.com

Candy Tin "Lump O Coal" Gum, $2.85, www.amazon.com

Hello Kitty Foot File, $5.25 at www.Kohls.com

Glam Lips Essentials Set. $6.90, www.forever21.com

Zebra Duct Tape, $1, www.amazon.com

Holiday Kiddie Cup, $10, chasing-fireflies.com

So shop early, grab the best items, 
and look forward to the happy faces on Christmas morning!!

And if you want to add the best gift of all, you can add religious bookmarks or Bible verses 
rolled up and tied with ribbon. Stuffing our stockings is fun, 
but we always need to remember that "Jesus is the reason for the season!"
