Christmas in July: Ultimate Stocking Stuffer List

A big ol' congrats to all of our winners so far! We love all the fun that giving stuff away brings! If you haven't won yet, don't worry - we still have lots of majorly fun items coming!

On Monday at the Dish, we covered the basic to do lists - things you can start NOW to save yourself some time later. Well, one more thing you can do now is stock up on those stocking stuffers! I know that if I wait until the last minute, I end up spending so much more time and {MONEY} on those than if I would have done it first thing.

Follow this list precisely:
  1. Go to your attic
  2. Open it.
  3. Retrieve stockings.
  4. Buy stuff.
  5. Fill stockings.
  6. Hide them.
  7. Pat self on back.
  8. Celebrate with wine.
See? Easy! Oh, you're getting stuck on that #4 thing, huh? Well, have no fear... we've got ya covered...

Some items are good for any one (toothpaste, gum, candy, socks) but we like a list, so these include even those generic items. That way we get some satisfaction when we cross things off later.

Whew. I'm tired just thinking about shopping. I'm also thinking that we could add items forever. But that should be enough to get you started! What? Did we forget something? Are you thinking to yourself, "Hey! What about my wife/mom? And my husband/dad?" No worries, friends - click on over to The Dish for the rest of the Ultimate Stocking Stuffer Guide.
Most items can be found at Target - even gift cards for other stores because, clearly that makes sense.
Including our amazing sponsor for today's giveaway! We are so excited to help announce that Dr. Smith's Diaper Ointment is now at Target! They have got you (and your newborns) covered - or shall we say STUFFED - with some goodness!
