Stocking Stuffer Jewelry
Christmas will be here sooner than you think, and as usual you’ll probably put off shopping for stocking stuffers until last. It’s always hard to come up with new ideas for stocking stuffers after a few years. You have to consider the size of the stocking, how many items you want to put in the stocking as well as the personal tastes of the person whose stocking you’re filling. Fortunately, SuperJeweler has plenty of stocking stuffer jewelry to help you out! But where did the idea of hanging stockings to be filled with treats at Christmas begin?
Stocking Stuffer Origin
Stockings weren’t always hung for Santa. The tradition started with the legend of a poor man who had no money for a dowry for his daughters. When Saint Nicholas heard about this, he snuck into the house one night and left a bag of gold chains in the stockings of each girl, who had hung them by the fire to dry. The story in various forms has traveled the world and children from many cultures hang stockings or leave shoes by the front door, hoping Santa Claus will fill them. Over the centuries, the stocking stuffer origin evolved into a tradition for adults as well.
The earliest stocking stuffers were generally small, inexpensive treats such as candies, gum, fresh fruit and small trinkets and toys such as tops or paper dolls. Today, exchanging stocking stuffers is often the most anticipated part of Christmas gift exchanges for couples. Over the years the value of these stocking stuffers has increased, with jewelry becoming a particularly popular gift item to tuck into the toe of a lovely lady’s Christmas stocking.
