View Full Version : stocking stuffer ideas

12-19-2011, 03:52 PM
I know you don't know me or my husband, but I need stocking stuffer ideas for my husband and my 18month old....We had such a busy (and rough) November that I really haven't had time until last week to think about Christmas gifts. My shopping time is limited b/c of aforementioned 18month old.
thank you

Are you wanting to knit something or buy something?

Depending on how fast of a knitter you are, you might try a hat for your husband (here's an easy, generic hat pattern: http://knittingonthenet.com/patterns/hatskull.htm).

For your baby, you could knit up a cute toy. This site has links to scads of them: http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com/directory/toys.php

For something to buy, you might try CDs, gift cards, or gadgety-type items for your husband.

For your baby, maybe go for baby books (look for classics like The Very Hungry Caterpillar in board book format), textured toys (to stimulate touch), kid DVDs, or anything else the kiddo might need.
