Last Minute Stocking Stuffers (That Aren’t Gift Cards)

It’s last weekend before Christmas, and it seems like everyone in the world is at the mall shopping for last minute gifts. I went out yesterday to shop for Luke’s stocking stuffers and nearly suffocated in the crowd. My plan was to just “look around” and “see what I could find”. I ended up being at the mall for three hours. That doesn’t sound terrible until you realize that I only went to three stores.

Being the good Samaritan that I am, I decided to help you guys out today so you don’t have to go through the same experience. If you’re drawing a blank on what to put in your child/husband/wife’s stocking, I’ve compiled a fairly comprehensive list of small, relatively cheap stocking stuffers that you can find almost anywhere. Make your list before going out so you can just make a beeline straight for the things you want!
