7 Best Stocking Stuffer Surprises
Christmas has come and gone and we hope it was a joyful time spent with friends and family the world over, although word has it that it was exceptionally good for a few lucky people out there.
Without giving too much away, we took an informal poll to discover people’s best stocking stuffer finds. No names or locations shall be revealed – only the stocking stuffers that made the top of their Christmas lists.
<strong>1. Extra Game Controller</strong>
The PlayStation 4 and XBox One proved to be hot sellers this year, even though both Sony and Microsoft continue to fleece their loyal fans by forcing them to buy a second controller. Fortunately, Santa is hip to this scheme and dropped plenty of extra controllers into several stockings.
<strong>2. The Elf on the Shelf</strong>
Where in unholy hell did this creeper come from? Nobody seems to know, although it ended up peeping eerily out of many a stocking – much to the dismay of children and adults alike.
Candy canes, peppermints, homemade peanut brittle and peppermint bark were featured heavily this year. Seeing as how this is the best DIY gift ever, it’s no wonder people were happy to find it - even if it had been sitting in a used sock all night.
<strong>4. Coal Lumps</strong>
Oh yeah – it happens! True, it seemed like a prank for the handful who reported receiving it, but you know what they say: Every joke has a little truth in it.
Santa is an empathetic soul. The man spends his entire year holed up in the North Pole with nobody for company but Mrs. Claus, a unionized elven workforce and eight crazy flying reindeer. It’s a shock that any bottles ever manage to make it into the stockings.
<strong>6. Engagement Ring</strong>
Did you really think it was sweet and romantic? You can be honest (and anonymous) with us in the comments. That move is so played! You must've felt at least a little hesitation at saying "yes" to someone so creatively uninspired. Nevertheless, congratulations!
Perhaps the “best” worst stocking stuffer ever, it’s even worse than a lump of coal because the people who pull this stunt usually think it’s a cute and worthwhile gift. Yeah, we get it – stockings stuffed with stockings! Now, where’s the booze?
