Re: Christmas Stocking Stuffers

I'm not a fan of Christmas stockings, but my wife likes stuffing them. I happily let her indulge in that silliness, which includes buying stupid crap for her own stocking.

This is a pretty good one.

I've also heard that Korean face masks from a beauty supply store or Amazon are a good gift. It's usually $20 for a 12-pack.

Good one. The "thermopop" works really well, isn't crazy expensive.

Are these tiny books or books of matches?

Look at the other pictures on the page. They are books of matches.

Pens and pencils, small notepads, candy, crayons, silly putty. Stuff like that.
This is pretty much what wed get as kids, minus the office supplies. My parents stopped doing stockings when they realized me and my brother would basically forget to check our stockings until halfway through Christmas.

Nowadays theyre filled will the traditional clementine, candy, lottery tickets, and a gift card for $25 or so.

I have one of these, and it's great. Seems accurate. Not as fast as a thermapen, but it was only about $20.

They're matches for a book burning spree. I got some as a gift earlier in the year for my bff, who uses a lot of matches. Probably not for everyone, but small things, books, and matches are some of her favorite things (I'm always looking for miniatures for her).
