Although they might not be the "main course" on the Christmas gift spread, stocking stuffers are one of the most anticipated traditions for many families. Sometimes opened before Christmas, sometimes opened first thing in the morning on the 25th, but however you "unstuff your stockings", figuring out what to stuff them with is oftentimes the trickiest part.
