Great stocking stuffers for everyone!

Consider It Done's Sheila Gunneson joined 13 ON YOUR SIDE to show off some great stocking stuffer ideas for the whole family!

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Did you know that putting oranges in stockings is a tradition that originates from a legend of Santa filling a family's stockings with gold? According to the Smithsonian, a widowed man was worried that poverty would keep his daughters from finding "suitors."
