If Christmas gifts consisted only of stockings and the goodies therein, I'd be one very happy gal. While I absolutely adore the tradition of gift-giving, I find gathering the little things most exciting. Below is my list of favorite stocking stuffer gifts, and they're arranged into the following categories:
