Gift Ideas for Christmas Stockings
Goodies for Everyone on Your Gift List
Christmas stockings are a big deal in our family. On Christmas morning, we start the gift frenzy with the stockings. Everything in each one is carefully wrapped and we take turns opening every unique item. Just the right present is selected to go in each person's stocking. Really, they're almost more important than the actual Christmas presents.
There are always practical items included, as well as some fun stuff. Most things are very inexpensive but there's usually always a more pricey treat stuffed into the toe. These ideas are great for Christmas but could easily be adapted for any holiday or birthday.
