Are stocking fillers a waste of time?

Stocking fillers, those small, whimsical gifts tucked into festive stockings, embody both value and sentiment, but are they just a waste of money?   On one hand, they add a delightful element of surprise and joy, creating a sense of abundance and generosity. These tiny treasures can carry personal meaning, reflecting inside jokes or shared memories.However, some may argue that they have a negative environmental impact and encourage the accumulation of unnecessary clutter.

The value lies in thoughtful curation – stocking fillers that are practical, eco-friendly, or consumable that can be appreciated without contributing to excess.  AirPod cases match this combo perfectly.  Let's admit it, we all have a pair of AirPods and they help alleviate boredom on the tube, encourage learning or communication whilst walking the dog or commuting and who wouldn't be without them on a video call!   A stylish AirPod case is a nifty little addition to anyone's stocking; practical, useful and they look great too!  

Ultimately, whether stocking fillers hold value or seem pointless depends on the intention behind them. When chosen with care, they embody the spirit of giving, fostering connections and spreading happiness and joy at Christmas.
