No one actually wants seven swans a-swimming, four calling birds or a partridge in a pear tree for Christmas. True Christmas lovers know the best gifts often come in small packages, not from the exotic bird store. Christmas stocking stuffers are one way to treat your relatives and friends with a "12 Days of Christmas" parade of gifts without breaking the bank. Buy a bunch of small, thoughtful items, wrap them in beautiful paper and watch as each package is opened by the delighted recipient. Below are budget and luxury gift ideas for everyone on your 2014 list, both the naughty and the nice.
