So it's that time of year. And while we don't hide the fact that we are the ones stuffing the stockings, we do love the tradition. Can we do a brainstorm of ideas for little, non-budget breaking gifts to fill the footwear with? To start it off:


Maple candy


hair ties



silly bands

silly putty


play dough

Small coloring books

I always like to do socks in stockings! Takes up a fair amount of room and I kinda think it's funny to have socks in a sock!

We always do a pez despenser and pez, an orange in the toe and a Terry's chocolate orange in the heel, colored pens and a travel sized activity book, nuts and candies, stickers, and we love those small metal hoop puzzles or wooden block puzzles or rubix cube puzzles.  Those keep him busy until breakfast is ready and we are ready for the big presents.
