do you fill stockings?

Postby JustJo (106622274) » Sun Dec 02, 2018 12:13 am

A lot of us fill stockings as it is a custom to some-I was wondering what others do-and do you fill them with certain things?

Ours are home made quilted and through the years of experience we have had to make them bigger as we fill them with the small big gifts like perfumes,special soaps,nail stuff, candies chocolates pens calendars mints slippers all bunch of things.. I know one family that only fills theirs with fruits..anyone have special stockings and stuffers?

I've made all mine too. :thumbsup: We mostly fill with favorite candies and any gift that fits inside. Hot Wheels were a staple back in the day when the boys were small. We always fill on Christmas Eve. :alarm:

My mom and I always used to find little filler gifts throughout the year to use as Stocking Stuffers and extra "Santa" gifts. They were generally things you might need around the house but wouldn't always think to buy, like little hand-shaped tongs to grab toasted items from the toaster, extra kitchen towels, ALWAYS Avon chapstick, candy & things along that line. I always added a nice naval orange because I read years ago that oranges were a very special Christmas item that were hard to come by over 100+ years back :)

When my daughter was little, maybe about 7, she was into sewing, she made our Christmas stockings. My kids are grown with their own families but you gave me the best idea! I'm going to give them their old stockings this year and fill them up! :thumbsup:

My friends and I all have a stocking in our room and whenever we visited eachother’s house, we would put little things like hand cream, hand sanitizer, a candy cane, perfume, and small boxes of candies or chocolates.

We did that throughout high school and stopped after we graduated because we all went our seperate ways for college.

I love the idea tho! It’s like a bunch of mini presents! :D

We do stockings, my mom was a very crafty lady so she sewed one for each kid. As we added people to the family she used those stocking kits to make sure husbands and grandkids each have one. I'm finishing one for my niece & son to keep up with the tradition. Typically we fill them with favorite candies, there is a chocolate store in our area that is amazing but we don't go there often. So for Christmas we get our favs from there and then fill the rest of the stocking with little things. Bath soaps, gift cards, toys. And can't forget the toy coal or candy coal.

My family has always done stockings. Usually we put smaller gifts and candy in them! :D I always thought most people did stockings, but maybe not anymore? :?:

No, but on St Nicholas day on december 6th I fill my niece's boot with candy, nuts and fruits, when I am around my family that year.
They live 4 hours drive away and I work a lot.

my old traditional style knitted stocking is a bit narrow to get things in now... little gifts used to be smaller years ago lol. i have a bigger one now which has a nice Christmas design on and i put small gifts in including gifts for my pets :D . when myself and my brother were young we had small gifts along with satsumas and nuts... oh and Dad would always throw a raw sprout in! :haha:

I don't do Christmas, but when we do with my guy's family, they don't do stockings. So I have never experienced the stocking thing :haha:
