Last Minute Stocking Stuffers

For full disclosure, I'm kind of a crappy wife this time of year. I love buying my kids presents in anticipation for Christmas morning, but my poor husband takes a backseat. In fact, most years I forget to buy him anything for his stocking until the last minute when I don't have a lot of options. Not this year, my friends! I went shopping early just so I could help YOU with your own stocking dilemmas. I went to the store that has something for everyone, including my hard-to-shop-for husband. Walgreens!

Why Walgreens? Because I know there will be something he'll love, if not multiple things.

My husband is kind of a tech guy, so it's hard to find a Christmas gift that isn't hundreds of dollars, even for a stocking stuffer. So I have to do my best within my budget. I decided to spend under $30 for the presents in his stocking and here's what I came up with.

Gift Cards

I buy gift cards for almost everyone on my list. They're the perfect size to slide in a stocking and you know they'll find something they like since they'll be picking it out themselves. I found a huge selection at Walgreens.

Whether your gift-getter enjoys entertainment, eating out, or just plain money, there's a card that will make them smile. I saw everything from American Eagle to Visa pre-paid. But I knew of all the choices, my hubby would appreciate and use an iTunes gift card the most.

Personalized Presents

I was tempted to buy him a $25 gift card, but that wouldn't leave me much wiggle room for personalized presents. I went with the $15 so I could buy something I get him every year. Good ol' Legos.

You probably wouldn't expect me to get those for a man in his 30s, but it's kind of a tradition. See, when we were first married, we didn't have money for presents. I think we budgeted $10 for each of us to spend on each other. I couldn't think of anything fantastic for that price, so I chose something that he could have fun with. I've made it a tradition to give him Legos every Christmas since.

Candy

A stocking can't be stuffed without treats. My husband can have quite the sweet tooth and is willing to try all kinds of goodies. I took advantage of Walgreens candy aisle to find something unique. These Good and Delish Belgian Chocolate Thins fit the bill.

I thought was enough until I saw this Catching Fire display.

They're chocolates based on the Panem Districts. I almost picked the Crispy Crunchy Carmel Corn and Dark Chocolate, but he's a fan of the peanut butter/chocolate combo, so I went with Crunchy Runner Peanuts in Peanut Butter and Milk Chocolate. Hope he likes it!

To treat myself for staying within my budget, I picked up some Cadbury chocolates. Why not when they're on sale in the Happy and Healthy Holiday Guide? Thanks to Walgreens, I'm #HappyAllTheWay with my presents!

Are you on the ball will all your Christmas stocking stuffers? Who's your hardest to buy for? Do you buy treats for yourself while Christmas shopping? (Please tell me you do.)
