10 Unique Ideas for Easy-To-Make Stocking Stuffers

Stocking Stuffers

Is it just me, or is choosing stocking stuffers harder than choosing bigger gifts? Since my kids are older, I can usually get away with giving them a bunch of treats in their stockings, as well as a few store-bought necessities (like hair ties, shaving razors, and bath products.) I always try to add one or two meaningful gifts in their stockings though, and this year I thought that something handmade would be the perfect fit.

If you’ve seen any of my previous Simple Handmade Gifts posts, then you probably already know how much I love a good handmade gift. :-) Anyone can appreciate the time and effort it takes to make a gift, rather than buying one at the store. So I started compiling ideas for handmade stocking stuffers, and I ended up finding a lot of really cute projects! If you’re looking for some stocking stuffer inspiration, then you came to the right place!

  • Cardboard or paperboard
  • Scissors

DIY No-Slip Socks

Instructions:

Cut two pieces of cardboard or paperboard into small rectangles (small enough to fit inside a sock).

DIY No-Slip Socks

Slide one piece of cardboard inside each sock to create a flat surface to paint on. The cardboard will also keep the paint from bleeding through to the other side of the sock.

Use your puffy paints to paint a design on the bottom of the socks.

Let the paint dry for the time recommended on the bottle.
