A stocking is magic. It is filled with the wondrous delights and splendors of the holiday season. At least that’s what the festive sock is in my household. Throughout the past 26 years of my existence, some of the most exciting presents were not under our tree; instead, they were perched within our stockings, dangling ever so gently above the roaring fireplace. Stocking stuffers were never an afterthought in my family. They are taken very seriously. Because good things—often the best things—are found in small packages.

More from Robb Report

My stocking gifts now have a legacy to live up to (thanks, Mom and Dad), and I am more than willing to pass that spirit, that pure holiday bliss, onto my family and friends. Nothing beats the look of surprise on someone’s face when they pull that one special gift out of the pouch. Even if a present is small in stature, the smile and sense of joy it elicits is large enough to fill up an entire room. That palpable emotion is the reason why my family started this tradition, and now I am passing it on to you.

Need help creating memories that’ll last a lifetime? Here, an excellent selection stocking stuffers to hang by the chimney with care.
