Stocking Stuffers for Adults who are Kids at Heart!

Every family has their own holiday traditions. For mine, the holidays always started on December 6th, St. Nicholas' Day. The practice of hanging up stockings originated with Saint Nicholas. As the ancient legend goes, the generous Saint Nicholas was known to throw small bags of gold coins into the open windows of poor families. After one bag of gold fell into the stocking of a child, news got around. Children soon began hanging their stocking by their chimneys "in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there".

If you're looking to fill someone's stocking with joy this Christmas, here's some stocking stuffers worth smiling over.

1. Facebox Stencil Set from Perpetual Kids : Doodle Tools. Love them. Right up there with Ed Emberly. Love the fingerprinting kit too!

2. 3D Drawing Pad from Paper-Source: Check out your own handwork with the special glasses and see it in 3D! Who knew I was so talented?

3. Little Miss Sunshine Mug from Paper-Source: Sunshine and Coffee! Best start to any day! Besides if Little People are cool enough to top a wedding cake, they are more than qualified to bring me my coffee.

4. Emergency Brain (inflatable) on Archie Mcphee: For when yours malfunctions. Doubles as a flotation device.

5. Medical Anomalies Vintage Dictionary Magnets, an etsy find: Lots of dictionary magnets available. Great for your friends who know everything.

6. CAFFEINATED Stay Puft Marshmellows from ThinkGeek: Because, um, YES PLEASE? ThinkGeek has a whole section of caffeinated edibles. And I thank them for that. "Take that giant marshmallow man; we're eating your eggs one by one."
