I was just thinking about stocking stuffers today!
Well, you’re right on time if you want to skip the holiday craze. I also prefer to plan and prepare in advance.
We got a mini baby album for our child and they loved it! It helped them learn the names of their relatives. We also got another one that we used for places.
That’s awesome! The mini album is actually my favorite from the list because it’s something I haven’t seen before and I’m definitely getting one for our baby’s first Christmas.
great list… dont have a tradition for stocking stuffers where I live but easily converted into babyshower gifts or baptism gift 🙂
There is no such tradition here either but I like it and we’ll be hanging the stockings this year. The kids will be happy, that’s enough for me.
