I was able to find some beard care products for DH. He's never tried them before, so I hope it's a hit. I'll probably do some chocolates and other little munchies. He enjoyed the Jack Daniel's flavored nuts I put in his stocking last year. Maybe some more of those, though I try to change it up a bit every year.
I've found quite a few nice things for the kids. Both are getting a small schleich figure and a hotwheel. Some hello kitty stuff for DD and a play mobil figure for DS.

So far, I have multi-coloured electrical tape for all the kids, as well as a Bic 4-colour pen (these have been a standard fixture in family stockings since I was a kid).

I've also picked up some LED flashlights for each of the kids. I got htem in a package, so I may give the extra one to dh. DD1 and ds2 are also getting yo-yos.

For dh, I've picked up some assorted twine/string, some electrical tape, an eyeglass repair kit and some two-part epoxy. (DH likes to have that around the house, but he threw out the remnants of his old pack when we moved in June.)

Now that I'm done at the hardware store, I'll hit Michaels, the music store (strings, picks and maybe some guitar polish, etc. for dh and/or ds1), and the grocery store (for food and toiletry items).

I haven't got the stockings completely planned out, but I'm mostly on track now, I think.

Everybody has different needs, but in DIY/handyman/whatever area, I've given dh a lot of different tapes (electrical, duct, masking, etc.), string/twine/rope, outlet extenders (got a package of five for a good price, and he put them all to good use), a thermometer...there was something else, but it's not coming to mind. I may pick him up a multi-pack of twist ties this year, but may give them to him ahead of Christmas, to help hang lights.

Oh the outlet extenders is a good idea! We have awkwardly placed outlets in some rooms, so it's hard to get everything plugged in.

Found some great stocking stuffers online! Amazon had Anchorman for just $3.99, so I got that for husband's stocking (and since I bought the rest of his gifts at the same time, free shipping!).

Also got quite a haul at Minimus (do you guys know about this site!? Everything in miniature!). Not everything is a good deal, naturally. Individual tea bags, oatmeal packets, cereal bars? Rip off! But they have lots of other hard to find minis at great prices.

So from Minimus for husband's stocking I picked up two mini glass bottles of Frank's Red Hot Sauce, and for Little Man's stocking I got a mini boxes of Lucky Charms and Fruit Loops (he never gets this kind of cereal otherwise).

And then, since shipping was free on a $20 order, but I only had $10 in my cart and shipping put my order at $17, I figured I could get some stuff for next summer's camping trip and really get my money's worth. So for camping I also picked up honey packets, green Tabasco, Newman's Own balsamic vinaigrette, Newman's Own light Italian dressing, Sweet Baby Ray's barbecue sauce, Kikkoman teriyaki marinade/sauce, Ocean Spray jellied cranberry sauce, Kraft parmesan cheese and Butter Buds. That's a ton of ways to dress up vacuum-packed chicken and tuna!

Thought I was done with stocking stuffer shopping (actually all shopping) but I've had a $10 gift card to LL Bean for a few weeks that I've wanted to use up - I only buy winter gear there every few years, so we didn't need any of that stuff. But I did find an awesome collapsible drip coffee filter for husband - which I got for just $3 after the gift card! It will be great for camping, but I suspect he'll use it at home too - we have the worst luck with French presses; we're always breaking the glass!
