Kickass Stocking Stuffers for Readers and Writers – Part 1

Oh, the holidays. There are quite a few this month – Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Festivus, and Christmas, which my family celebrated. Growing up, one of my favorite things about the morning of December 25th was digging into my stocking, which Santa had filled with all sorts of goodies.

Stockings are still my favorite part about Christmas, and I couldn’t believe it when my husband said he’d never had one (bad Santa!). Now he knows the joy of overflowing stockings, too.

Read on for some stocking-stuffer options that are, in my opinion, damn awesome. And especially awesome if given to a writer and/or book lover.

And it might not be your standard coloring book, but this gem will certainly get those creative juices flowing!

Cozy Neck Adornments

It’s important to stay warm during these chilly winter months…so why not do so in a literary fashion?

And this one, which is in my letter to Santa this year (it’s my favorite Poe poem…what can I say?):

And the fun isn’t over yet! This is just part one of my stocking stuff post series this holiday season. Be sure to subscribe to my blog so you don’t miss part two!

You’re welcome! It was love at first sight (for me, anyway–like I’ve said, I’m a sucker for glitter).
