For you procrastinators (I’m not naming any names here), some last minute gift ideas. Remember to check the shipping dates of the shops to make sure you will receive your items in time for Christmas.

Stocking Stuffer Rules According to Molly:
1. This one is the most important rule: Stocking stuffers don’t actually have to fit into the stockings to qualify as stocking stuffers.* I will never forget the year my mom Santa put a stack of coloring books (a STACK!) and a big box of crayons with them next to my stocking. Pure joy.
*Santa didn’t hang the stockings back up on the fireplace, which may be different from your house; at my house he scattered them around the room, so that he could surround them with little piles of presents that didn’t fit in the stockings.
2. Sometimes stocking stuffers cost as much as gifts under the tree, but that’s ok – it’s what makes stockings extra special.
3. While I understand that oranges used to be a treat in the old timey days, no kid of mine is getting an orange in her stocking.
4. Stockings should never be an afterthought. When I was a kid, stockings were actually better than the presents under the tree.
OK? OK. Glad we’ve got that cleared up.
So I’ve got a whole bunch of picks here and again tomorrow – many of them are shops I featured last week, many are new, not all are Etsy. I hope you love these picks as much as I do.
Tomorrow: even more stocking stuffer goodness!
I need all of my friends to start having babies right away, because I have a lot of baby gift ideas…

Is it Friday already? It’s been an especially fun week here – thanks to all of you for your kind comments, which we love reading.
The beauty of these gift guides is that if you really liked them, you can bookmark them for anytime you need gift ideas (and not just gifts for the holidays). Right? Karin and I both added a lot of new Etsy shops to our favorites.
Next week we’re starting the week off with some holiday card ideas, then we’ve got a whole lotta stocking stuffer fun, and finally, gifts for the person who has it all.
See you on Monday!
Ok, you’re right. We had just as much fun picking out these gifts for little boys as we did for yesterday’s little girls’ gift guide.
Tell us if there’s anything you especially love in today’s guide – we’d love to know.
Of course, pretty much all of these gifts work for little girls too.
Tomorrow: We’re going a little crazy with the Gifts for Babies guide. We can’t help ourselves.
Karin and I have three girls between us. No boys. We’re all girlie, all the time, so we especially loved picking out today’s gift guide.
How can you resist any one of these items? That’s right, you can’t.
Which is your favorite? I’ll confess: I bought one thing (so far!) in today’s gift guide. I can’t tell you which – but it’s more fun to guess anyway. (Ok, if you ask me on Twitter, I’ll tell you!)
Tomorrow: rats and snails and puppy dog tails.
