If you asked my grown boys what their favorite part of Christmas morning is (after celebrating our Lord’s birth), they would undoubtedly tell you it’s the stockings. I think they got that from me. But sometimes stocking stuffers can be challenging. We don’t want more stuff to fill up our already overflowing junk drawers. I start shopping for stocking stuffers in January, so here you have my curated list for the 50 best stocking stuffer ideas for teens, adults and in-laws for 2022!

Which one or two are your favorites? I’d love to hear any stocking stuffer suggestions you have in the comments below!

In the coming weeks, I’ll also share great shopping ideas for readers and writers as well as a grouping of the best books to add to your reading list, so stay tuned!

Give the Gift of a Good Day

Today is Going to be a Good Day: 90 Promises from God to Start Your Day Off Right

What we focus on grows. So, when our feelings or our circumstances take us down the negativity rabbit hole, our perception of our whole day becomes darkened. Yet, when we train our brains to focus on the truth of God’s character and His promises, our perspective of our day changes and any day can be a good day. This book was birthed out of an extremely painful time in my life when I needed a reason to go on, and I needed something to cling to. One by one, I clung on to God’s promises, I began to rise above my devastating circumstances, and you can too. Today is Going to be a Good Day: 90 Promises From God to Start Your Day Off Right helps start your day on a positive note to carry you through the rest of the day. Buy on Amazon
