Holiday Gift Guide 2015-Peep This Stocking Stuffer

***Disclosure-I received samples for review.  All opinions stated are my own based on my personal experience. 

Do you do stocking stuffers?  When do you put the gifts inside the stockings?  Does Santa "wink, wink" leave little gifts in there when he visits?

Growing up we did not have stockings.  This was not part of our traditions.  But now it is part of the traditions I am teaching my kids.  Stocking stuffers became bonus gifts.  Kids love to open presents.  Like they like playing with empty boxes or wrapping paper.  So, I started doing fun little gifts in my families stocking stuffers.  Normally it is a favorite snack or candy, nothing too big but lots of fun items.  Each year it gets a little harder to not get the same things from last year.

Here are some of my Stocking Stuffing Tips:

1)  You only have to buy stockings one time and you can continue to reuse the same ones.  So your original price is an investment.  You can also catch them on sale or purchase some for next year in the after Christmas Clearance sales.
2)  Decorating the stocking can be fairly simple.  Glitter pens can be found at the dollar store.  The main tip is practice on a piece of paper first.  And always let the glitter glue dry first before hanging.
3)  You do not have to spend a lot of money of stocking stuffers.  What is that saying... a way to a man's heart is through his stomach?  I believe this is true for my family.  I love getting their favorite food items, candy, or treats. 
There are several candy brands, like Peeps, that have treats perfect for stuffing in your stockings ranging for $3.50 and under.
