What supplies are needed to make these favor gift stuffed socks?
First, here is the general list of stuff I bought to make these sock-stuffed favor gifts.
A pair of socks - festive (Amazon Affiliate Link)
Small Gifts for inside the socks - ornaments (flat), lip balm, comb, holiday candy (Amazon Affiliate Links)
Thin in width Festive Ribbon - red and green (Amazon Affiliate Link)

How much did it cost to make these Sock Stuffed Favor Gifts?
It didn't cost much. I spent five dollars per sock favor gift. I made sure to buy things in wholesale packs, so I got several of the supplies pieces for a much lower price.
How to Make a Sock Stuffed Favor Gifts
First, the items you will need are below.
Determine how many pairs of festive socks you want to put together.
I had an even number of family members at my party, so I used one pair of socks per two people so each family would get one or two pairs of festive socks . Since the festive socks were girl socks , I ensured one child or lady was a part of the pair. If you want to spend more, get one pair for each person.
Then, I purchased stuff for the inside.
I bought large bags of candy from a wholesale store — sweets that are longer in their packaging and are flexible work best to keep the socks appropriately shaped. I bought lip balm (Affiliate Link) and dollar store ornaments as well. Flatten ornaments (Affiliate Link) that are small and round work well, so it doesn't poke a hole in the socks .
Other things you put inside a favor sock are:

backscratcher - (Affiliate Link)
pencil - (Affiliate Link)

Facial sample mask - (Affiliate Link)
Bottle opener - (Affiliate Link)
I found the above ones on Amazon (affiliate). If you click through and buy something on Amazon, I will receive a referral commission at no cost.
Curly ribbon in two colors is an easy way to tie the socks together.
I used a red and green ribbon. Thinner ribbons are best, so stick with this type.
I also created gift tags that are attached here for you to use.
Use a hole puncher to run the ribbon through it, then tie it to the top of the socks . Tie them pretty tight so none of the food falls out.
Ornaments were added, too.
Winter lip balm was added.
The lip balms were taken out of the packaging to fit better. The EOS-style lip balms are great if you can get them in bulk.
Add Gift Tags to keep the top of the sock tight.
I used Microsoft Word and created this in a table. Then, I added the text to each block. The app has several holiday images, so I used a snowflake. I found a funny saying, "Hoping your toes stay warm this Christmas," to each card.
Tips on how to make these Sock Stuffed Favor Gifts:
Buy Men's Socks for more room for things.
I found it easy to buy a pack of socks on Amazon. The men's crew sock sizes were a little bigger to add more stuff. If you want less stuff in those sock-stuffed favor gifts, get the women's shorter socks .
Buy socks with a liner inside.
Setting up the piles in an assembly line for quick wrapping.
Make piles of all the items you want to add to the sock on a large table. Then, start from one end and work to the other end of the table, adding stuff to the stocking along the way. It will speed up the assembly process.
A party idea for your next holiday party!
You can have everyone make one pair and bring them to your next holiday party sock-stuffed gift exchange. Just have everyone bring a pair of socks and stuff them with whatever they like. Then play a game with the invitees to see who gets the socks . It sounds like a blast, doesn't it? Check out this post that talks about how to do this game.
Well, there you have it! I hope these quick DIY Sock Stuffed Favor Gifts are great for your next holiday party, and I hope they bring joy to all your guests. The family enjoyed the favor gifts. They appreciated the lip balm and the other things in the socks.
