I am a member of the Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community. This shop for last minutes stocking stuffers has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias and their client; all opinions are my own.
My kids are adult and that means the days of filling their stockings with toys is over. I miss those days. Now it’s more likely that I’ll fill them with things they need, but I like to get them fun items that they’ll enjoy.
Last Minute Stocking Stuffers: Outdoor Style
This Christmas I’m giving them a nod to fall fashion and 2013 fashion trends by selecting items that show their personalities and fit their lives. My youngest son is a Park Ranger (the one on the left in the photos above) so I put together an outdoor look for him. Red and black plaid pajama pants, wool socks, texting gloves, and a fun knit hat. Other items I could add is a t-shirt, scarf, indoor/outdoor slippers, and some new boxers.
Last Minute Stocking Stuffers: Athletic Style
For my older son, it’s all about fitness. I picked up a moisture wicking shirt and running pants along with socks. All of them will be rolled, wrapped, and placed into his stocking along with chocolates – there’s gotta be a reward for all that running, right? Other items that can be added is a fitness tracker, BP monitor, track jacket, running shoes, safety light, reflectors, and earbuds for listening to his favorite music while he runs.
Stocking Stuffers: Last Minute No Problem!
I purchased these manly looks for less at Sears. Thankfully they have rush delivery for people like me who shop at the last-minute. I placed my order Friday and it will arrive on Christmas Eve. But they also ship to your local store (for free!) or you can shop your local store. I didn’t want to head out to the mall where ours is located, so I took the free shipping route (free on orders of $50 or more).
Not all of my gifts will arrive in time and that’s my fault. I actually thought I placed my order over 10 days ago, but it turns out I never completed the checkout process. I must have gotten distracted and so when I went back in yesterday to check on my order, I found my items still sitting in my shopping cart. It never occurred to me that I didn’t get the normal order confirmation email or tracking info. I guess I just had too much on my mind over the last few days.
A few of the items were now out of stock and they’ll ship after the holiday. That’s no big deal, my kids are used to getting pictures of items they’ll receive as a gift. We’ve done that for years when the hot toys they wanted were sold out at Christmas but available soon after. They’re patient kids.
Everything arrived before Christmas Eve! I was pleasantly surprised and really grateful to Sears for getting them to me faster than promised – I love that! The only anomaly is the hat that arrived is different from the one I ordered, but still one I would have chosen so it wasn’t a problem. The boys loved everything!
So what’s your holiday look? We’re all about comfort and casualness here and fashion isn’t something we worry about on the day we celebrate. In fact, I suspect I’ll see both boys dressed in their new outfits sometime on Christmas Day.
