How about stuffing a stocking with a gift card from a local business like Olde Towne Coffee? (Michael Seale / Hville Blast)

Someone once told me “The best way to show you did not have time to shop for someone is to give them a gift card.”

Okay, that is a little harsh, and I also disagree. A gift card can actually be a pretty thoughtful gift if it is for the right place and it is given because you know the recipient likes where the card is from.

Here are some local spots to get a gift card as stocking stuffers:

A jar of jelly.jam or relish can fit nicely in a stocking, and you can get some excellent jarred goodies at Harrison Bros. Hardware downtown.

Jarred goods at Harrison Bros. include (but are certainly not limited to):

  • Jams
  • Jellies
  • Pickled okra
  • Relish
  • Slaw

And while you are at Harrison Bros. check out their vintage toys. You may find something small enough to stuff in a stocking among those items as well!

I just discovered Fow Wow Designs recently, and their Huntsville-themed merchandise is second to none as far as being clever and unique (and hilarious).

They have mugs, hats, t shirts and more with tons of different Huntsville slogans and themes. My favorite is the Egg Beater Jesus mug that says “Whisk You Were Here.”

Check out the stuff they have in stock. All of it is just small enough to make stocking stuffers.

I know the joke is that when you have been bad all year, Santa fills your stocking with coal or rocks or the like. But if your stocking includes some of these ocks and crystals and gemstones from Hippie Butterfly in Madison, maybe it’s worth it!

The Hippie Butterfly is located at 30030 Highway 72 West in Madison, and offers jewelry, healing crystals, gemstones and more!

The Rocket City is chock full of sporting events and have three pro sports teams you can get ticket packages for — the Huntsville Havoc hockey team, Huntsville City Football Club and the Rocket City Trash Pandas.

Why not get a ticket package (season tickets, a group package, mini-season packages, and more are offered by each team) for one or more of these local teams?

Check these links here for ticket packages and prices:

I hope this helps! There really are so many great gift spots in the Huntsville area. And I know there are many I missed here, so feel free to let us know where you like to pick up your stocking stuffers!
