We’re officially in the home stretch for Christmas…hooray! Hopefully your presents are purchased, your stockings are hung by the chimney with care and you can relax and enjoy the holiday festivities with the love of your life. If you’re still frantically scrambling for last minute gifts for your spouse, read on for some quick ideas to stuff those stockings!
Tools. Men just love to get gadgets in their stockings, and Home Depot makes it so easy by having inexpensive items on each of their end caps during December. Confused about what to get? Just ask any man standing next to you for his opinion…he’ll be happy to tell you what he hopes his wife gets for him!
Gloves. You may have a matching pair of gloves for all 13 coats that you own, but chances are your man doesn’t. Surprise him with nice leather gloves, and he’ll be wearing them for years to come.
Sausage….yes, I’m serious. For some reason all men we’ve encountered love the mini summer sausages that come with the holidays, so wrap a few up and add them to his stocking. The man in your life will be pleasantly surprised at how well you know him and his tastes!
Hobby-related items make ideal stocking stuffers. Golf balls, fishing lures and sports team paraphernalia are always good bets. Just be sure to pick something you know he’ll use, not something you wish he would.
Something silly. Guys love a good joke and will appreciate your efforts to amuse them. Try to reference some inside joke that the two of you have or go for something really off the wall like this screaming monkey sling shot. Your man will be entertaining your neighbors and his co-workers for the next month with it!
OPI Mini Merries are a fantastic little beauty treat to find in a stocking. They’re fun, festive and $12.50 for 4 colors! She’ll smile every time she looks at her post-holiday manicure.
