50 Last Minute Stocking Stuffer Ideas

Last year, I finished up my Christmas shopping in early December.

Then, on Christmas Eve, I discovered that I hadn’t bought nearly enough stuff to fill the stockings. I decided that wouldn’t happen this year.

Oh, no ma’am.

I started picking up stocking items way back in November, and this year, I will be a stocking-stuffing fool come Christmas Eve.

Remember, I have two boys, so, you know, BOY STUFF.

    Y’all were running a bit low on Legos Julie. I’m glad you were able to get some for the boys. 🙂
