REI Stocking Stuffers

Finding stocking stuffers is one of my favorite parts of Christmas shopping! I inherited that from my mom who finds the biggest non-traditional stockings to overflow with all sorts of fun stuff. Naturally our stockings are normally filled with all sorts of outdoorsy things and snacks!

Stocking stuffers can be elaborate or simple, expensive or not, the choice is yours! Stockings are the first thing to get opened on Christmas morning in our house, so we love to fill them will all sorts of goodies.

Many of the TMM Team Members love gifting socks, snacks, and lights in their family’s stockings.

If you are shopping for an outdoorsy person, then you need to check out this ultimate list of REI stocking stuffers! This list has something for everyone, even the family dog!
