Little Gift Top 30 List That Will Save Your Bacon

Christmas is one of the most stressful times of the year for me. As the head of my family I do seem to do the bulk of the shopping, wrapping and cooking.  This puts me under a lot of pressure and I must admit in the past the stockings have suffered because of it.

By the time I have finished thinking of the main gifts for the day, wrapping them, planning the menu and doing lots of cooking I am usually far too exhausted to get creative with stocking stuffers.  This meant that in the past my family did tend to get just one or two generic items for their Christmas morning surprise. 

However I was determined to do better having seen some of the amazing stockings featured on Christmas themed TV programmes last year.  I had some good success with doing my Christmas shopping online last year and decided to make more use of this fantastic resource for the coming festive season. 

Buying Stocking Stuffers Online

The great thing about the Internet is that the online stores never close.  You can shop for presents any time of the day and this has made my life so much easier.  I don’t have to plan trips into town to buy stocking stuffers anymore.  I can just sit down at the computer, coffee and slice of cake at my side and start shopping.

  • I saved so much time last year by doing my gift and grocery shopping online I don’t know how I used to cope before. 
  • This left me more energy to make homemade food for the big day and for the first time I made my own Christmas cake and Christmas pudding. 
  • I have learnt a lot from festive shopping online and have narrowed down my stocking stuffers to a perfect all-round list.  If you have left shopping for your stocking stuffers to the last minute then list will save your bacon.
  •  All the items listed are available online and most websites will offer next day delivery right up until a few days before Christmas. 
  • Items on this list cover the wide range of age groups in my family from toddlers right up to grumpy granddads!
  • This takes the hassle out of shopping for your Christmas stockings and will give you more time to do the things you love during the festive season.
