    • Knee high socks (very "in" right now)
    • Basic non-themed candy bought on post-halloween sales
    • Chapstick of all kinds
    • Smell good stuff (body spray, perfumed lotion, etc.)
    • Deck of cards or another small-ish game
    • Batteries (not super frugal, but nice to get)
    • Small stuffed animal

     We do stockings for each other, and don't have children, so most of these are adult-related:

    -Travel packs of unique teas and coffees.

    -Trial sizes of fun foods like exotic jams, shortbread cookies, fun flavored chocolates, etc. (we get these at World Market)

    -Special ornament for the tree. We each get one for the other person every year, and it's been a great tradition!

    -Hand-made, customized "coupon books," with coupons for getting out of various household chores, for example, or entitling the bearer to a free back massage, etc. These also work for kids (one free coupon to get out of a chore, etc.).

    - Lottery tickets. 

    -Used/on sale DVDs or CDs

    -Used books/novels.

    Party City and other stores that carry party favors will put them on clerance after the season passes or the theme is replaced with new ones. Little activity pads, bubbles, stickers, pens/pencils and the like make great little things to put in the stockings for the kids.

    Travel sized lotions

    Gum

    Chap stick

    small bottles of body spray/wash

    Pocket flashlight

    Travel tissue packets

    Matchbox-type cars

    Crayons/markers

    Small children's books

    Paperback books

    DVDs/CDs

    Sweet treats

    I hit the Dollar Tree and get almost all of these things or look in the dollar aisle at Target. I usually buy my own stocking stuffers and get myself the chapstick, tissue packs and hand lotion (for my purse). Our church had a book sale and I bought several paperback books for 25cents in August so planning on using those for my dad and DH.
