I'm looking for ideas for cheap stocking fillers. I'm mainly interested in things for teenage girls but all idea's are welcome!

Lip gloss, little makeup (not little kid stuff, but like "good" stuff), bracelets, earrings, rings, hair things, bead kits, cheap yarn, knitting needles or crochet hooks, little notebooks, cool pens, those little things near cash registers that you would never buy at normal times, chocolate, soap, mini bath stuff, mints, little candles, wallets, clutches, magnets for lockers, makeup bags, or cozies for iPods.

For teenage girls.

"Cheap" is not a word you will use in connection with stocking stuffers for very long!
The first Christmas I was in charge of Christmas stockings, the stuffers ended up costing more than the presents did. So now I look for bulk.
Bulky up to a point - it still has to fit in the stocking, but I want the stuffer to take up a lot of space there.

I fill a stocking for my mom, sister and brother in law every year and yes, it can get expensive. For my sister, I have gone to the Christmas tree Shoppe (we have here in Connecticut) and got some cooking utensils (some for $1.00 or so) or Suave shower gel - stuff like that. Avon has some cute things like lip glosses, little soaps and they are pretty reasonable. Maybe some chocolates, hot cocoa mix. For those who like to cook, you can get spices in the dollar store. Maybe candles or note cards.. I had better get busy on the stockings that I have to fill!

My husband's family do stocking for one another - they do necessary things like toothbrushes... but we enjoy doing cute post-its, candy, Burt's Bees lip balm, little bottles of lotion or bath gel.  i've put boxer shorts in there too, but i'm sure a girl woudln't like that..  Wink

I love stockings!! It's one of my favorite parts of Christmas, even after being in the Navy for three years if I don't make it home my Mom still sends me one filled with goodies. The best part is I never know what's going to be in there, one year I found a expensive necklace mixed in with the goodies and the next it will just be some junk food and little things.

Junk food is awesome, you have to have something to eat once you get tired of holiday leftovers! Slim Jim's, M&M's and for my chocolate covered cherries. Yum.

For a teenage girl if they're crafty or you want to make them crafty you could put together a little kit. Like make your own jewelery or something.

Altoid/matchbox shrines to them or something they like.
