It’s that time of year again: the countdown to Christmas has begun! Many shops and businesses (and homes and families) have already put up their Christmas decorations, and the excitement is mounting.
Wordans is an e-commerce platform where you can buy a selection of products at very competitive prices. The cheap promotional products they have on offer this festive season include plenty of small items suitable for Christmas stockings – with prices starting below 50p.
Promotional products are available in the following categories: Apparel & Accessories, Bags & Travel, Games, Hygiene & Beauty, Kitchen & Home, Mugs-Cups-Bottles-and-Tableware, Office & Writing, Accessories & Tools, Sports & Recreation, Technology, and Wellness.
At just 42p, the Prime Line PC185 Mini Tissue Packet is not only a gift that would be useful to just about anybody: it also fits really neatly into the toe of a Christmas stocking.
Similar small Wordans gifts – perfect for Christmas stockings – include pens, bottle openers, keyrings, sunglasses, and lip moisturiser. If you have a nice big, stretchy stocking on hand, you could use bulkier items as stocking fillers. Water bottles, travel adaptors, and coffee mugs all go for under £3.
Get an art pencil set for just over £3, or how about a small collapsible umbrella? Those can be excellent for keeping around you at all times – especially in a country with a somewhat miserable climate!
Hanging up a Christmas stocking before bed on Christmas Eve and waking up on Christmas morning to find it bulging with surprises is one of the best things about being a kid at Christmas. But when you start thinking about it, it’s rather bizarre. Why small gifts, why Christmas Eve, and why a stocking?
Legend has it that there was once a certain man, in a certain village, who had three daughters, but had lost his wife. Owing to their poverty, it was unlikely that the girls – though beautiful – would be able to find good husbands.
Well-wishers in the village knew the father was too proud to accept their charity, but St. Nicholas came to the rescue one night. He slid down the family’s chimney and left gold coins in some stockings he found hanging in front of the fire to dry.
The girls discovered the coins in the morning, were able to marry, and lived happily ever after.
That could easily explain why chocolate ‘coins,’ wrapped in gold paper, have long been popular stocking fillers. A tangerine for the toe of the stocking has also been popular. In the more materialistic climate of the 21st century, however, few people would bother to choose anything as mundane as fruit for stocking filler gifts. As you can see from the selection of stocking fillers available on wordans.com, most prefer gadgets and gimmicks.
But another way of choosing stocking fillers is to think about sitting in bed on Christmas morning, opening your stocking. In that situation, what would you need? Maybe some other ideal stocking fillers could include pajamas or dressing gowns, chocolates, coffee mugs, books, or magazines – everything you need to snuggle in style on Christmas morning.
