Stocking Stuffers

Stockings are one of my favorite Christmas traditions! I've had the same stocking since I was born, and I love opening it up first thing Christmas morning.

Here are a few things that I think would make great stocking stuffers:

Does your family open stockings? If so, what do you usually get in yours?


  1. We like to put the goofiest stuff in there: granny panties, argyle socks, soap on a ropes, whoopee cushions and candy candy candy!

  2. Stockings are my absolute favorite as well, but Mom stopped doing them a few years ago so it's worn off. I am so bringing it back when I have my own family though.

  3. We do get stockings and in them they have a magazine and a plethora of candies/chocolate. the magazines are usually ones that we don't normally get from the UK or, for the boys, Robb Report. I would be in utter heaven if someone gave me a Moleskine for my stocking!

  4. great finds!
    and yes we open stockings. I love the tradition. It is always so exciting to open those first and build up anticipation. Usually we will have candy and small toiletries like lotions, lip glosses, etc. Also usually some cute undies and small stuff like that that you can fit into stockings.

  5. i love stocking stuffers! our family used to do them but this year I don't think we will. Hope yours is filled with fabulous goodies!

    Merry Christmas, Chelsea!

    i wander, i wonder

  6. I love stockings! My family does them every year, and they're always the first thing we open. I usually get a Peet's Coffee card, candy, money, and random goodies. I love that your suggestions are everything I love; records, coffee, Moleskines, and Rosebud Salve = happiness. :)

  7. Those are all great ideas! Stockings are one of my favs! In fact, my mom asked if we could forgo gifts this year, and I said it was fine as long as we have stockings!! We always get a piece of fruit, some candy, and a couple little silly things :)

  8. Sometimes someone will decide to do stockings. Last year, my sister did and filled it with cute candy that was in little board game boxes - so cute since I'm obsessed with board games! :)
