    :tree: Stocking Stuffer Ideas!!!

    Good afternoon everyone! Only about 5 months left til Christmas

    I have been getting so excited recently with all the 'Christmas in July' movies on TV. This year I have decided to do stockings for my family. Stockings have always been a pretty big deal in my family. This year, instead of getting a bunch of larger gifts for my siblings, I will make the stockings I will also make one for my mom, dad, and boyfriend in addition to other gifts.

    In our stockings each Christmas, we always get a new toothbrush, lots of candy, small gifts that we asked for, hats, gloves, socks, underwear, flashlight.. stuff like that.

    This year I for my 2 younger sisters (19 and 16), I will be putting in addition to the above, makeup, nailpolish, their favorite candy and snacks, hair stuff, comfy socks, razors, candles, gift cards (maybe $5 or $10 each) to Dunkin Donuts, McDonalds, or other places they like to go.
    For my 20 year old brother I will include our traditional stuff, beef jerky, slim jims, some tools, $5 or $10 gift cards, stuff for his truck, razors.
    I will probably think of more in the next few months.


    What do you usually put in your christmas stockings?
    Does your family have a certain stocking tradition?

    Please feel free to share!

    It's the most wonderful time of the year!

    Katie,

    It sounds like your stockings are a lot like mine...I usually get toothpaste, new toothbrush, Reese's trees, gift cards, etc. I like stockings...I have used them as "gift wrap" in that instead of wrapping several small gifts, I would wrap them simply and put them, with some extra small goodies in a stocking. Stockings make great decorations and you can put them just about anywhere!

    My husband and I have always done stockings for each other! We still do stockings for our kids who are 25 and 16. My Mom did a stocking for me until I was well into my 30's.

    Always simple stuff: shaving creme, razors, lip balm, lotion, hair accessories, bobby pins, pens, markers, nail polish, emory boards, candy, deodorant, etc!

    I like everything that you mention. So far I always put candy. Maybe I'll add something more this year!

    I'm always given some stationary, fruit and a packet of cigarettes! The last one a little unconventional I know.

    I think small and fun things are best for stockings - always starts the day off on the right note (apart from the cigarettes maybe).

    We fill stockings to spilling over and hang them on the bedpost for early christmas risers to open up when they awaken...

    I always do a stocking for my Mom and Fiance.

    Last year I filled my Mom's stocking with Makeup, Scratch Tickets, Soaps from The Body Shop, her Favorite Candy, a Christmas Movie, $10 Gift Cards and her Favorite Perfume.

    I filled my Fiance's stocking with a Tim Horton's Gift Card, Scratch Tickets, Candy, DVDs, CDs and Miniature bottles of Liquor from the Liquor Store.

    The last stocking my Mom did for me was themed. I love Marilyn Monroe so she filled an entire sticking with nothing but Marilyn Monroe items, I loved it!

    Have a look around your local or $ store.
    So let the raucous sleigh bells jingle,
    Hail our dear old friend kris kringle,
    Driving his reindeer across the sky.
    Don't stand underneath when they fly by.
