Stocking Stuffers Facts

Before we start off with our Stocking Stuffer ideas for toddlers, let’s see what Stocking stuffers are all about:

The Legend

Were you aware that this beloved Christmas tradition goes as far back as 1823 when Clement Clarke Moor wrote “A Visit from Saint Nicolas” and originated from the life of Saint Nicholas? It certainly is!

Here is a short version of the most popular legend of how the Christmas stockings came to be. A widowed man had three beautiful girls. He had a tough time making ends meet and was worried they weren’t able to marry.

St. Nicholas heard about the family. He knew the man wouldn’t take his charity directly, so he decided to slide down the chimney in secret. He filled the girl’s recently laundered stockings and hung them on the fireplace to dry.

Quite interesting isn’t it? And more fascinating information about this essential part of the Christmas tradition can be found here.

Stocking fillers do not always have to be something bought. Here are some great Christmas crafts suitable as stocking stuffers. Let’s start with these adorable Cupcake Liner Christmas Ornaments, make a nice DIY Christmas Card, or print these adorable Snowflake Coloring Pages.
