Stocking Stuffer Ideas – The Christmas season is here and many of you are scrambling to find stocking stuffers right about now. If you are looking to stuff the stockings of a fellow Gen Xer, here are 10 really cool ideas, where you can buy them, and how much they cost.

Bath and Body Works has great sales this time of year on lotions and small candles with a variety of seasonal smells. You can pick up a great stocking stuffer there for under $10. 

Want to make your Gen Xer smile when they empty their Christmas stocking? Try adding some of their favorite candies from their childhood. Pop Rocks, Big League Chew, Abba Zaba, Pez Candy and Tootsie Rolls are on the list. Candy shops carry most of these for about $1 each, but you can also order them online.

You can try Target for the I Love the 80′s collection of DVD’s at a low price of $5.

For just $5.99 you can buy your iPhone lover an iPlunge. It’s a phone stand that looks like a little plunger.

Most of us owned a Magic 8 Ball at one time, well now you can give a Magic 8 Ball Pen as a stocking stuffer! $7 isn’t much for a pen that can predict the future.

For those Gen Xers who still enjoy writing in actual paper journals, why not buy a small Moleskine notebook/journal for just $12? Besides, it would go perfectly with the Magic 8 Ball Pen! You can find the journals at most book shops and big box stores. 

There is a cute item perfect for men or women who can clearly remember using Floppy Disks with their computers. It’s the Floppy Disk Sticky Notes, a note pad that replicates those tired old disks. It cost $10 and you get three notepads with 50 sheets in each pad. 

80′s Christmas tree ornaments will make cool stocking stuffers and I found some great ones at zazzle.com. Rainbows, unicorns, vinyl records and retro designed are just a few of the totally awesome ornaments available at the site. The prices range from $13-$20. 

There is an interesting paperback book called “Whatever Happened to Pudding Pops?: The Lost Toys, Tastes, and Trends of the 70s and 80s”. You can buy it on amazon.com for under $8.
