When I was younger, we didn't hang our stockings up by the fireplace. And actually, we didn't have a fireplace.
Instead, we would carefully lay our stockings across the back of our couch and Santa would lay them at the foot of our beds after filling them with fruits, nuts, candy, and several small gifts. It was the first thing we would open Christmas morning, and all of us kids would excitedly show off what we had received to each other. This was nice for our parents, who got to sleep in just a little bit longer before we would come bursting into their bedroom to show them what Santa had left us.

Because of these sweet memories, I have a special sentimentality towards stockings. I know it can be harder to find the perfect gift to give in stockings, since they are smaller but still have to pack the same punch. That's why I've compiled this list of some of the best stocking stuffers I've seen that will cover all of your bases this year. And not only will these bring a smile to your loved ones face, but they will help support small businesses as well.

These crocheted hats by Ashley Artechi (@Ashleys_CrochetedCreations on Instagram) are so cute! They come for both toddlers and teens, and she has a couple different styles up, among her other crocheted items. I can think of a few people in my own life who would enjoy getting one of these hats, so I definitely wanted to share them! The fringe around the bottom is probably my favorite part. They just add that extra touch of holiday magic.

Check them out on Instagram here.

In my opinion, the first couple Christmases with a new baby are the hardest to shop for. But these festive and functional bibs from Bibs4Littles would make the perfect stocking stuffer for any little ones you have. This Christmas plaid is currently my favorite, but there are many other different styles to choose from. The best part is these bibs have sleeves for ultimate mess control and a button clasp that you can easily undo with one hand.
