25 Travel Sized Stocking Stuffer Ideas For The Wanderer On Your List

Stocking Stuffer Ideas

Ah, the Christmas stocking.

A tradition with no written origin, although legend has it that it all started with Saint Nicholas passing through town and tossing gold coins in the stockings of three daughters of a poor man in a small village. That was the first of many great stocking stuffer ideas.

Rumor spread and soon everyone was hanging up their socks eagerly awaiting gifts from Saint Nick.

It’s a custom beloved by many. And it’s not just for kids! Adults delight in the dumping of the stocking. I know I do. It is the perfect hiding spot for small, usually inexpensive, fun gifts.

And there is a traveler on everyone’s list. It might be you! Or your dad or your cousin or niece.
