Stocking stuffers are so much fun! We often think that everyone needs a perfect gift. Maybe there is no one singular perfect gift; maybe the perfect gift is a bunch of small gifts. This is why stocking stuffers are one of the best parts of Christmas. Who wouldn’t want to receive a bunch of little gifts just for them?

The Legend of Christmas Stockings

Why are Christmas stockings and stocking stuffers a thing anyway? Smithsonian Magazine explains the legend dates back centuries to the early 1800’s. There was a widowed man with three daughters who was struggling financially. St. Nicholas caught wind of this and paid a visit to the family via their chimney. He left gold coins in the daughters’ stockings, which were hanging by the fire drying.

When the family woke up the next morning, the daughters couldn’t believe what they found. Their father was also relieved that his daughters now had the money to be eligible to wed.

Sure, it’s a good thing that most cultures don’t require a dowry anymore. However, it’s still cool that Christmas stockings still remain to this day.

Modern-Day Christmas Stockings

Nowadays, Christmas stockings are filled with a variety of gifts. They’re usually picked out specifically for that person. Of course, finding a bunch of small gifts can be challenging. Finding one gift for someone can be tough, so finding a number of gifts has the potential to be a nightmare.
