Hey all! I'm curious as to what you all are making to put in your loved ones' stockings this year?

I'm completly stuck as to what to make my husband to put in his stocking. Of course he's getting some edible goodies, but I also wanted to make him a couple things. I already made him a little coupon book, but am out of other ideas! I'm hoping some inspiration will strike upon reading your creative ideas =) So...share away!

One thing I made for my husband's stocking is Tetris magnets. Most craft stores sell sheets of magnet with adhesive backs, so I printed off a sheet of tetris blocks and stuck it to the magnet, then cut out each piece.


You can do magnets of just about anything...

Cool idea! My husband loves old school nintendo. I think he would like something like that. Thanks for the idea!

I made ransom note magnetic poetry, like the ones SlyFox made https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=326000.0

If you knit or crochet, mittens, neckwarmers or tuques are easy to make and work up really quick.  You can also make them with fleece pretty easily.

I've made stuffies for my SO in the past.  He still sleeps with the amigurumi penguin I made him 4 years ago Smiley  Love notes also go over really well.  You can fold them up into little origami shapes like stars or something like that.  Another thing I've done is embroider hankerchiefs.

Other ideas: juggling balls, home made candies, hot chocolate mixes or mulled wine spices, cookies, ornaments, painted mugs, etched glasses, small paintings or sculptures, rolled up stenciled/silk screened/handpainted t-shirts, boxers or pyjama pants, slippers...

Hm... I came here looking for ideas, but I guess I'll give some. ^^ SHARE AND SHARE ALIKE!! This year is the first year I'm planning on doing heavy duty crafts for Christmas.

Lets see.
Was going to make hats for everyone. They're small enough to roll up.
Oldest younger brother is getting a tiny messenger bag for school and some zip pouches to go in it.
Youngest one will probably get something similar to this... https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=330735.0
Bf might get another hacky sack, black and white stripes if I get around to it.
If you want to try to fit scarves into stockings, I guess that'd be an okay idea too.
Was going to make mom a tampon/pad holder.
Ornaments always work.
Caliometries are pretty quick.
Hm.... Don't have many other ideas... Sorry... I'm a little stumped too.
