Every year for as long as I can remember I have packed my oldest daughter's stocking with a variety of small gifts. Watches, gum, candy, chapstick, lipgloss, fingernail polish and files... As she got older I gave her travel toilet paper and paper towel rolls, hand sanitizer and any little travel-sized item I could find. Yes, believe it or not, she uses every one. She used to tell me how nasty the girls bathroom is in high school and that they sometimes don't have toilet tissue, hence the gift of a travel-sized toilet paper.
Now that's she's gone away to college I was thinking I would get her the "normal" stocking stuffers, but will mix it up a little this year. She'll probably get more than one Gift Cards so she can purchase exactly what she needs for her dorm room and herself.
Gift Cards - there are quite a few sold at Shop.com - are the perfect gift. They're easy to purchase on Shop.com because you can search the category from which you want to purchase. Make giving a little easier - and brighter - by giving gift cards.
