The Frisky Gift Guide: 20 Stocking Stuffers Under $20

Catherine Strawn | November 22, 2008 - 6:00 pm

Spoiler alert: Santa doesn’t exist. Strangely, the inclusion in my stocking of practical items like toothpaste and lotion never tipped me off to this. Why would Santa give me boring things like that? I suppose he might have thought I wouldn’t enjoy my chocolate-covered raisins if I had cavities, but these thoughts never occurred to me. This year, don’t make your loved ones aware that Santa is fictional by stuffing their stockings with boring nonsense like travel-size shampoo. Instead, fill their giant socks with junk that has a little pizazz. A shower cap with ears? I can only hope the fat man in red gives me one of those next month.
