Christmas stories, such as "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens, are favorites for holiday reading. Books are also a great choice for stocking stuffers. "It's the gift that keeps on giving," says Sheri Hill, store manager of Blue Manatee Children's Bookstore in Cincinnati. "It can be re-read and handed down." From small board books for the youngest kids to miniature books or paperbacks for older kids, stocking-stuffer books can be either seasonally themed or simply by a favorite author or illustrator. Activity books, such as sticker books or coloring books, are also great stocking stuffers and perfect to bring on holiday trips [source: Hill].
