Homemade Stocking Stuffers

Looking for unique stocking stuffers? Try making them yourself


 

You’ve shopped for all the Christmas gifts, put up your decorations, baked and frozen a bunch of goodies for holiday guests and are feeling pretty proud of yourself for finishing ahead of time. Suddenly you realize you’ve missed something - the stockings! The kids, and let’s face it the adults too, will be so disappointed if their stockings are empty Christmas morning. DIY stocking stuffers can be a lot of fun to make, can save money and they make unique and thoroughly appreciated gifts. Here’s some inspiration to get you started.

 

 

Fancy bobby pins – These adorable hair accessories will bring a smile to any little girl’s face. They’re quick and easy to make and will help you use up any small bits of fabric you may have lying around.

Bath crayons – Kids love to draw and if they can draw on themselves or on the walls without getting in trouble, even better. These vibrant crayons will make them giggle and get them clean at the same time.

Lip balm – Everyone needs lip balm in the winter, so it makes a great stocking stuffer. It’s easy to make and you can customize it with fragrances and colours. Try using peppermint oil for an extra ‘Christmassy’ scent.

Homemade marshmallows – Homemade marshmallows are delicious and easier to make than you think. They can be made in practically any flavor you like, like this ‘grown-up’ version. Pack them in small jars to give as stocking stuffers.

Gingerbread playdough – It’s everyone’s favourite dough re-made to look and smell like Christmas cookies! What could be better? Try giving it with festive cookie cutters – just be sure to label it as ‘play’ dough so no one tries to eat it.

Holiday Jam – Everyone loves homemade jam! Try making a special holiday jam like this one to make it more festive.
