The kids have made their lists and checked them twice; parents have begun shopping for gifts, putting up Christmas lights, and stocking up on items for entertaining.

There is only one item that I tend to forget… the stockings! While I’m focused on shopping for gifts under the tree, I tend to overlook the little surprises that can be found on Christmas morning in our stockings.

Sure, kids will love to find a small toy in their stockings, but they also need healthy, practical items too  – stocking stuffers that are both practical and affordable. Adults like to find little surprises too! From vanity cabinet must-haves to at-home beauty treatments, here are some tried-and-true products to include in your family’s stockings this year… PLUS you can win them all!
