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?
