Astoria Bookshop Event: Vegan Eats World 49 Comments Melissa December 15th, 2011 I love getting candy, chocolate, perfume, lotions, really anything sweet tasting or smelling! kellner December 15th, 2011 anti-wrinkle creams, small robots, apples, pens Daniel Rios December 14th, 2011 I’ve always known stocking stuffers to be edible. I like the idea of treats in my stocking. Whether it was cookies my mom put in there from my neighbors, the traditional tube of Reece’s cups, or some toy candy dispenser, I have thought of the stocking as a compliment to the usual gifts. Jill December 14th, 2011 Candy and gift cards. I love some of these other ideas though – I’m stealing them! Shahna Sherwood December 14th, 2011 Silly socks, lip balm, essential oils, chopsticks. Katie December 14th, 2011 I love funky little trinkets as stocking suffers. A few years ago, I gave my mom who lives in Atlanta a little peanut shaped box that I actually bought at SITE. She loves it! I also love the traditional orange in a stocking and chocolate covered cherries! AJ December 14th, 2011 I love giving food things as stocking stuffers. A really good chocolate bar, or some homemade marshmallows and I’m in heaven. Kat4a December 14th, 2011 Chap stick/lip gloss, fun kitchen gadgets, and funky socks are all favorite stocking stuffers. Julia December 14th, 2011 I love handmade cards and mix cds, also tasty snacks or candy! Alexandra December 14th, 2011 My next purchase is an I <3 Astoria tee and Queens pillow for my best friend in the entire world. He is moving to LA on January 1st and when he inevitably gets sad and misses Astoria he can just don the shirt, cuddle up with the pillow and remember the best place in NYC! Lisa December 14th, 2011 This year I’m trying to buy as much local and handmade stuff as possible and stockings are easily my favorite part of Christmas morning. After all the presents are opened and you get that momentary pang of, “oh man. It’s over,” suddenly you have a whole stocking full of goodies! I love to fill stockings with lots of little things like candies and lip balms and lotions..but I suppose I could roll up an “I heart Astoria” tee and squish it in there ;) Jason December 14th, 2011 Candy. A giant bag of Skittles is the perfect stocking stuffer, to me. SARAH December 14th, 2011 chocolate. no contest. Kittson December 14th, 2011 My mom always included a new toothbrush and travel sized toothpaste with all the candy. Lisa December 14th, 2011 I am a huge fan of Site. Every single birthday, my boyfriend buys me a necklace from their amazing selection. Each necklace is unique and I get stopped on the street and asked where they are from. I have a fork necklace since I love to eat, a subway token engraved with the words Te Amo, since i am a wannabe Latina who teaches Zumba and most recently a colorful moth dangling from a chain. Oh how I Love Site so much….. Aryn December 14th, 2011 I have always liked getting socks in my stocking. You know, for the irony of it. Carrie December 14th, 2011 My dude and I have made this Christmas all about supporting small business artists and crafters. Being half way done with our shopping, we have hit up Etsy, Astoria Market and The Golden Nugget (Lambertville NJ) but a certificate to SITE would be perfect to finish the list! We haven’t been there yet and feel like bad Astorians for it. Jhani December 14th, 2011 Handmade gifts and little trinkets are simply the BEST. I love making handmade magnets for friends and family. My mom always stuffed my stocking with lip balm, gift certificates, little chocolates, and whatever little weird, unique things she could find around town. No stockings for me as a New York resident with no fireplace but that’ll change again someday! MelodyJ December 14th, 2011 I like fruit, nuts, candy, money and gift cards. melodyj(at)gmail(dot)com Eileen Diskin December 14th, 2011 I’m a fan of the ever-popular Starbucks gift card. It may not be the best coffee, but it sure is nice starting the day with a free cup of coffee! Randi December 13th, 2011 Photos and Candy and maybe a gift card Heather December 13th, 2011 Candy, magazines rolled up to fit, and little bottles of lotion! My daughter is going to get a toy cat from Santa her stocking this year. Jessica December 13th, 2011 I like unique gifts…handmade or store bought (preferably locally)! jenn December 13th, 2011 Growing up we always got candy. Since my son is only 7 months, I’m putting mini stuffed sesame street toys and a mini book set. Can’t wait til he’s older to make stocking stuffers for daddy with him. Kimberly December 13th, 2011 Growing up my Mom put a ton of chocolates and other small toys in our stockings. But now that my sister and I are older, I always look forward to the sample size makeup she puts in there. Last year I got a mini-nail polish set – so fun! Carrie December 13th, 2011 Homemade soaps and handmade earrings. LOVE! Rachel Kempster December 13th, 2011 Bright, nutsy nail polish. My dad put a few crazy colors of Brucci in my stocking every year. Ali - YumVeggieBurger December 13th, 2011 I love a really nice (locally made!) lip balm or body lotion as a stuffing stuffer. Or chocolate ;) Jenn @ Lean Body Pilates December 13th, 2011 Fancy shea butter soap and socks and undies. My mom does that every year and I always look forward to it. Everyone can use new socks & undies! Chocolate is never a bad idea either… ;) Vanessa December 13th, 2011 Nail polishes are always great for the ladies. Truffles and the like are great, too! Chelsea December 13th, 2011 Candy and scratch-off lottery tickets. If you don’t win big, there’s chocolate to console you! Laura K. December 13th, 2011 Candy is the best! I also like to put fresh baked cookies in stockings. Ashley December 13th, 2011 Money and candy Larissa December 13th, 2011 Candy and tchotchkes! Lindsay December 13th, 2011 Scratch off lottery tickets – wrapped in paper to keep it festive and classy! Randi December 13th, 2011 Little knitted things: ornaments, little toys, lip balm, socks. Erica Dunn December 13th, 2011 Candy and a handmade gift! Aryn December 13th, 2011 Lots of knitted things from me, and also food items. Warm and yummy! PepGiraffe December 13th, 2011 Well, I’ve never done stocking stuffers, but I do like the idea of the traditional orange at the bottom (a real one, not one of those weird chocolate ones) and I would have a candy cane coming out of the top, I think. I’d also include socks because I think socks inside a big sock is funny and an instant camera so you can take pictures of an awesome day. Tammy December 13th, 2011 Coffee gift cards and small books! Books are always a good gift. Elena December 13th, 2011 For my son, it will be tons of little toy cars … He can’t get enough of them, and they are too small to be wrapped up individually. Farzie December 13th, 2011 Coffee. Or chocolate truffles. Or home fragrance oils. Jenny December 13th, 2011 stockings are where I put sweets and sweet tiny items. Each non-consumable gets wrapped as well. I just discovered two carved quartz polar bears to add to my daughters’s stockings. I also add small notebooks ( like the ones at SITE http://sitenyc.com/item/Luechtturm-Notebooks/226/c5 ) so people can do some doodles on Christmas morning. Katie December 13th, 2011 I think there should be some candy (of course) and random or fun trinkets…the more random the better! Steph December 13th, 2011 I love gift cards in stockings…but I could totally use $50 to spice things up with some unique stocking stuffers from SITE this year! Katie December 13th, 2011 Growing up we would always have an orange at the bottom, candy, and then some random and fun trinkets like a slinky or nail polish or something. The more random and creative the better! Vicki December 13th, 2011 I wish a could stuff one of those Queens pillows into my stocking, but I guess I can settle for candy and some fun knick knacks. Erin Long December 13th, 2011 I LOVE Christmas ornaments as stocking stuffers. It’s a perfect little gift for Christmas morning and everyone could use a new ornament! Catherine December 13th, 2011 I love lots of little things like candy, coffee gift cards, lip gloss. Comments are closed.
