Fun Holiday Gifts & Stocking Stuffers

For me, getting my stocking each year was almost more exciting than opening any presents. It was a sock-shaped cornucopia of infinite possibilities, filled with candy (chocolate coins!), necessities (gloves!), and gifts. My favorite gifts were the crafts, or the little books. They were often picture books filled with funny or inspirational quotes. “Smile!” said Snoopy. “It makes people wonder what you’re up to.”
Since it’s that time of year when shoppers are looking for their own great ideas for stocking stuffers, here are seven delightful suggestions for everyone in your life. (Or get them for yourself. I won’t tell.)
