12 Days of Christmas – Day 11: Stockings!

Stockings are, well, they’re pretty awesome. A giant sock filled with little treasures. I blame my Nana for the fact my family still has them, regardless of people’s ages. She always filled my parents’ stockings with things like surge protectors and new toothbrushes. The idea is that everyone buys things for everyone else’s stockings. (In reality, I full everyone’s but my own, with a few additions here or there.)

You’ll want to include something edible because isn’t that what most folks expect in a stocking? Candy, homemade cookies, fruit chews, gum, nuts, granola/protein bars.

Non-edible is easy for kids – small books, Hotwheels cards, bandaids with a fun pattern or character, tsum tsum plushies, playdough. For adults – a bit harder though I like to include gloves, earrings, nail polish, bottle openers, hot cocoa packets, and those wipes for putting on bug spray.

Do you have any great ideas for stocking stuffers? Do you aim for low-price or just small enough to fit?
