Shop with Style's Amy Sewell Shares Some Last Minute Stocking Stuffer Ideas

Stuff Your Family's Stockings With This Year's Big "Little" Gifts

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - December 18, 2008) - While getting the gifts that go under the tree is the largest part of Christmas shopping, you might see some long faces if you forget to stuff the stockings! However, it doesn't have to be a big strain on your shopping budget. Shop with Style founder Amy Sewell offers these tips.

There's a lot of online content for people who connect their Nintendo Wii consoles to the Internet. For video game lovers, a Wii Points card is a great idea. They are essentially gift cards that people can use to go online and download the games that they want.

For tween girls, there is now a line of video games just for them. The Imagine line of games from Ubisoft has three new games -- Fashion Designer New York, Ballet Star and Movie Star -- that enable girls to dream about glamorous careers in fashion and entertainment while playing the games on the handheld Nintendo DS.

With all the gifts under the tree, you don't want to forget batteries and Rayovac Alkaline Batteries are an economical option. They are proven to last as long as the other two leading brands, but cost an average of 20 percent less.

One way to put those batteries to good use is in a battery-powered Crest SpinBrush. For adults, the ProClean brush, with its dual-action head, removes up to 70 percent more plaque in hard-to-reach places than manual brushes. They also have brushes featuring favorite children's characters such as Spiderman, Wolverine and Pokemon.

If you give someone a BearBucks Gift Card from Build-A-Bear Workshop, they can use it online or go to the store and enjoy the experience of customizing their own stuffed animals. You can buy the cards in increments starting at $5, and there is an increased selection of animals in the $10 to $12 price range, making it a gift for any budget.

Finally, if you can't travel to get together as a family, video calling with Logitech's QuickCam Pro 9000 webcam is the next best thing to being there. When paired with a video service like Skype, it offers HD-quality video calling that is so clear, you'll feel as if you are there.
