We mostly did candy, ornaments, Christmas socks, actual little
things! =] Nowadays, I see people spending the kind of $ I would spend on a regular gift, and not a stocking stuffer..

Funny you should mention bath soaps! My sister & I always got my Dad an English Leather soap on a rope. Ha!

I've seen people do that, too. I think that's a fun idea!!
