The Best Stocking Stuffers 2022
I’ve adopted this same love of stuffing stockings with my own family and thought it was high time I gave you some of my ideas. Teenage boy & girl approved!!
Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Teens
I hear people lament all the time how they hate shopping for stocking stuffers? What?? That’s the easiest part of Christmas shopping! Which is why I came up with these stocking stuffer ideas for teens. I think these are the Best Stocking Stuffers 2022!
Years ago, when my boys were small, my sister-in-law made them darling felt stockings and since we already had fancy mantle stockings.
Since I typically overestimate how many stuffers will fit in a stocking, it worked perfectly to divide our stocking loot between the two.
