Many of us spend a lot of time putting together a Christmas budget, but rarely factor in the cost of filling the stockings. Beware…before you know it, all the trinkets and random what-nots can really add up, and could have you spending more on the stockings than the gifts. Follow our stocking stuffer tips to stay on budget this year!

On average, $35 per stocking is reasonable, regardless of age. It may not seem like much, but if you have 5 people in your family, that’s an extra $175 just on stockings, so be sure to stick to your budget.

Every family has their own stocking traditions. Here’s a list of a few cleaver stocking stuffers that won’t break the bank.

With a little forethought and a few of the suggestions above, you can easily stay within a reasonable, yet festive stocking budget. Happy holidays!
