Christmas Stocking Stuffers for $5 or Less – the 5-Day Stocking-Stuffer Extravaganza!


Christmas Stocking Stuffer Extravaganza

With all the mini-mystery packages and unexpected surprises, Christmas stockings were a fun part of childhood Christmases. Want to recapture some of that childhood awe and magic of the holiday season? Bigger is not always better. All gifts don’t have to be ‘mature.’ Make a date with your mate to swap stockings for Christmas. The only thing more fun than stuffing a stocking personalized especially for the one you love is watching that loved one explore the treasures you buried therein!

Whether you’re a stocking-stuffer-novice or have been successfully delighting your mate for years with your stocking stuffer finesse, over the next 5 days this CHRISTMAS STOCKING STUFFER EXTRAVAGANZA will provide over 200 ideas, suggestions, and tips to make this year’s stocking the best-stuffed ever! Here’s the lineup:
