Today I present some great stocking stuffer ideas and gift ideas for your husband that don’t completely suck (I ran them by husbands.)
Creating stockings is my favorite part of christmas, and I spend all year scoping out the shops here in Calgary and pinning, so you will notice many local items, but often you can find a comparable on Amazon.
Enjoy these ideas, I hope they give you a creative boost! I’ve linked to Amazon Prime where I can for convenience (and better price) but as always, shop local as much as you can! I hope this gives you some great ideas – it was fun to put together!
