2011 Christmas Candy Stocking StuffersWednesday, November 16th, 2011 by Jessica Prokop
It’s 2011, folks, and preparing for the holidays isn’t what it used to be. Black Friday is starting on Thursday, and stores explode into Christmas mode as they take down their Halloween decor. Thankfully, online shopping has become much simpler and more secure, so you don’t even have to set foot in a mall. (Speaking of which, you can sign up for our email newsletter to make sure you receive our Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals!)
Each year, stocking stuffer options get more interesting and impressive. Stockings provide a great opportunity to impress your loved ones when they least expect it. Especially in these uncertain economic times, small gifts are a great way to spread holiday joy without breaking the bank. Give some extra thought to your stocking stuffers and gift toppers to make the most of Christmas this year.
When I was a kid, giant lollipops were a spectacle that could only be found at amusement parks. There were two kinds — the big, round, flat lollipop and the long, twisty swirl. I thought the flat ones got you the most candy, but my sister stuck with the twist. Either way, they made special occasions more memorable. These Giant Christmas Lollipops bring this type of fun to the holidays. Whether kids get to savor them individually or shatter them to share, they’ll make little ones feel a little extra special.
Candy + Toy Novelties
Companies like Hilco have upped the stocking-stuffer ante by combining holiday candy with toys. These novelty candy-and-toy combinations give kids something to snack on, as well as something to keep and play with long after the candy is gone. Many of them can be refilled, which extends the value of each treat over time. These seasonal exclusives really make a big impression with younger children.
The holidays are the time for savoring the moments, sights, and sounds we love. The flavors we cherish are center stage, and that makes this the best time of year for Truffles. Lindt Lindor Truffle Balls are the grown-up stocking stuffer your friends will go crazy for. We’ve got the flavors below, plus just about every other flavor you can think of — raspberry, hazelnut, peanut butter, and extra-dark chocolate for the most refined palettes. Unlike most online stores, we won’t make you buy 120. Mix and match our 60-count boxes to offer your holiday guests a variety of indulgences.
DIY Gift Boxes
These “Make It Yourself Kits” take the toy-plus-candy novelty treat to a whole new level! Each DIY kit contains an adventure that older kids or even adults can enjoy. One of these gift boxes can enhance a party twice — once when you give it, and again when your giftee uses it. Each one includes everything you need to create a homemade batch of goodies that most people have never thought of making at home before!
