For me the last thing on the list are the stocking stuffers, so I decided to do a little shopping to share what is out there to make your stockings come alive. Take a look and see if there is something here for your stocking stuffers.
For The Kids, Tweens & Teens:
*ty The Beanie Collection Kringle and Hoofer -- $4.99 at Walgreens -- How adorable are these round stuffed beanies that resemble Santa and Rudolph?! And they land on their feet every time. Although my kids are a tween and a teen, I still think they will get a kick out of these cute guys!
*Small initial stocking ($1.99) with gift card inside -- Walgreens has cute little stockings with an initial and a gift card fits in perfectly. For my girl, a Claire's card and for my teenage son an iTunes card. Both will be a hit!
*Angry Birds ($5.99) and Sock Monkey ($2.99) Backpack Clips at Walgreens -- Angry Birds and sock monkeys are all the rage this year, so they will dig the backpack clips for sure!
*DJ Pauly D Christmas Ornament -- $4.01 at Walgreens -- For all the Jersey Shore fans, Bianca tells me that the show's die hard fans dig this stocking stuffer. My teen son and his buds are fans, so for fun, I throw this into his stocking!
*Big Hershey's Kiss - I like this one because you are giving a kiss, too.
*Santa's Wheels pull string car with gumballs at Walgreens -- This fun gumball holder fits in a stocking and takes off with a pull of the string. Santa rides away and then after the fun, gumballs can be retrieved. Do be careful to only give this to bigger kids that won't choke on gumballs!
*Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer Grow A… $1.99 at Walgreens -- Kids love these little sponge creatures that grow when immersed in water. I purchased the Santa and Rudolph figures. Like many stocking stuffer toys, do heed the choking hazard warning that is clearly labeled on the box.
*3 Pack Cozy Socks -- $7.99 at Walgreens -- I could live in these socks and three pairs for under eight bucks is a great because the socks are colorful, thick and nice. A $20 value, too!
*p.j. chilcottage soaps -- in Flagstaff Old Town Shops and click this link to get to soaps page: http://www.pjchilcottage.com/store/search.asp
These cool soaps come in Christmas designs as well as every other type of décor you can think of like animals, hobbies, a martini glass and more! And all have unique scents and are handmade. I love the bars that I purchased to stuff in my daughter's stocking.
*Details Great Escape Body Mist Fragrance Collection -- $5.99 at Walgreens -- For under $6, you get four travel-friendly bottles so you can stuff one in each stocking.
*The Salon Shoppe My Scent Refillable Atomizer -- $4.99 -- My managedmoms.com website beauty products expert, Bianca from Walgreens, tells me that this item is very popular with the ladies. This travel-friendly perfume container holds your favorite perfume and can be filled and refilled with two easy steps. This is a cool idea.
*Animal Ring Holders -- $4.99 at Walgreens -- For the animal and jewelry lover, this attractive stature holds an abundance of rings and sells for under $5.

*Profusion Kissable Lip Gloss Set -- $4.99 at Walgreens -- For under $5, you get five different shades of lip gloss so you can stuff multiple stockings or give the set as one gift. This is an over $20 value and the gloss is not sticky, which is what I prefer for sure.

*A Christmas Story Ohh…FFFFudge!!! Creamy Chocolate Fudge -- $2.99 -- Bianca tells me that this is also a big hit in the drug stores stocking stuffer aisle. And this is a fun one to give your hubby.
*Trader Joe's Candy Cane Coal and Santa's Coal Bubble Gum at Walgreens -- I always put coal in my hubby's stocking for laughs and the Trader Joe's chocolate one is tasty, too.
