Last year I saw some great stocking stuffer ideas and whipped up a few really quickly. This year I wandered around Bulk Barn with a few ideas and looking out for new ones. Here's what I came up with:
Returning from last year are the reindeer noses, front left. Last year I used hard chocolates but I didn't like them that much, so this year I carefully picked through the peanut m&ms at the store (hence the benefits of buying bulk) to find all the brown ones. The bag looked a bit empty with only 9 candies (8 brown and 1 red) so I added a few more brown ones. I made a little reindeer to top that bag.
Next to the noses are dirty snowballs. I used yogurt covered raisins. I did this one mainly because I like yogurt covered raisins. :D The tag sports a small pile of snowballs.
The back row starts with yule logs, chocolate covered biscuits. For the tag I took a piece of brown paper, added some wood grain lines and then 2 leaves and 3 glitter glue berries.
Santa's beard is my favourite. I was looking for something clever and stumbled on a clear plastic container with a big outline of Santa's face. Inside, white cotton candy. Yup, thin strands of spun sugar. I filled those bags to the brim and still had some left over. :) These tags took the longest. I used a punch for Santa's face, hat topper, and beard (a cloud), and hand cut the hats.
Finally, I found these cute white chocolate mints that look like hershey's kisses with their bottoms dipped in coloured sparkles. Elf hats. I hand cut the hats for the tag and added a flower sequin for the pompom.
I can't wait to see how these are received.
