As children, my siblings and I would rush to the living room after breakfast on Christmas morning and grab our stockings from the fireplace. It was one of our favorite parts of the holiday… except when it was time for grandma’s apple pie. Opening stockings is always a fun part of Christmas and now it has become one of my favorite traditions as a mom. 

Filling holiday stockings is the perfect way to spread happiness and joy to anyone and is sure to put a smile on their face!

However, it is not always easy to figure out what to fill stockings with. For many of us, it’s easy to forget about stocking stuffers until the last minute. If you are looking for the perfect stocking stuffer ideas, Target can help you make your loved one's stockings extra sweet this holiday season! 

Here are some of my favorite stocking stuffers from Target:

The first stocking stuffers I chose were TRIDENT Cinnamon Sugar Free Gum 3 pack and TRIDENT Spearmint Sugar Free Gum 3 pack. TRIDENT Gum is always a stocking favorite. TRIDENT Gum comes in many long-lasting flavors — we love cinnamon and spearmint. The red and green packaging is perfect for holiday stockings.

We love the fun holiday editions such as SOUR PATCH KIDS Holiday Theater Box, SOUR PATCH KIDS Coal Soft & Chewy Black Raspberry Candy, and SOUR PATCH KIDS Stocking Stuffer Story Book. SOUR PATCH KIDS Soft & Chewy Candy is always fun with its sweet and sour taste. 

SWEDISH FISH Soft & Chewy Candy is a classic. We love the sweet flavor of these cute fish-shaped soft and chewy treats. The fun theater boxes are a perfect fit for stockings.

The TOBLERONE Swiss Milk Chocolate Candy Bar makes a great addition to stockings. TOBLERONE Chocolate Bars have been loved for over 100 years and are easily recognized for their fun and unique chocolate peak shape. TOBLERONE Chocolate Bars are made with Swiss milk chocolate and honey-almond nougat.

I had so much fun surprising two families with stockings filled with sweet treats from my Target trip. Both families were so thankful, and the kids loved their goodies! I enjoyed seeing big smiles on all their faces!
