My Top 10 Modern Stocking Stuffer Gift Ideas for Girls

The history of hanging stockings over the chimney to have them filled on Christmas Eve with little goodies like fruits and nuts has pre-Christian roots in Western Europe. Legend has it that children placed hay and apples in their shoes for the god Odin’s flying horse, and in appreciation, Odin left goodies for the children. This is why in some countries children leave out shoes to be filled, instead of stockings.
The stocking story comes from St. Nicholas, who aided a poor man’s three daughters by dropping down the chimney a bag of gold into each of the stockings that were hung there to dry. The gold gave the girls each a dowry, allowing them to marry and put their old father’s mind at ease.
