Following a German legend where Saint Nicholas filled recently laundered stockings which happened to be drying by the fire with gold coins, the tradition caught on across much of Europe and North America. 

Nowadays, rather than fruits and coins, Christmas stockings have become one of the more fun aspects of celebrating the holidays. Filled with silly trinkets and gifts to amuse, they’re an ideal way to add a touch of whimsy to your family gathering. 

Without breaking the bank, share a laugh with your loved ones with these affordable stocking stuffers that they’ll actually use.
