Tips for Buying a Fresh Tree
I will do that fresh cut of the trunk.....that was my problem last Christmas.....the tree lost so many needles....even tho it was fresh....the problem was....since I didnīt cut the trunk....the tree...
I was kinda hoping that there would be alot more of different ideas, more or less just to see what other families do all across the country... Or even, in other countries as well. What about lottery scratch-offs, is that a good idea to put in a stocking?
I always try to cater to what the person is "in to" at the time. For example, when my nephews hit driving age, I bought them gas cards in small amounts, tire guages, air fresheners, license plate frames, etc. to go in their stockings. They loved it! Because, they didn't want to spend the $ on it themselves, but wanted those things for their new rides.
I also would suggest an iTunes gift card!

I really got thinking about some of the ideas that were posted and what I did was sort of mix it up a bit. I went out and bought some little things from like Bath and Bodyworks, Yankee Candle and such places like that, but each little thing that I bought, I wrapped and placed it in their stocking.... Along with some candy, a personalized Christmas tree ornament, I-tunes gift card, etc....
I also did a couple gag gifts as well, like wrapping a bottle of cheese wiz and sticking it in my daughtes stocking... She thought that was so funny!
As a surprise, I found these little minature Christmas stockings made into a small purse, I bought one of my daughter and wife and stuck some cash in each... My son, I got a book of gift certificates from Mcdonalds, he pulls it out, says cool and starts thumbing thru it, as a surprise to him, I taped some cash inside...
I have sort of noticed that the tradition of getting gifts in your Christmas stocking was getting lost (in my household at least) and I wanted to bring that part back into the tradition of celebrating Christmas into my house and to also assist in prolonging the "opening of gifts"! And it worked, they were all surprised (including my wife) and hopefully, the good ideas here will keep rolling in....
The Bell Still Rings for me,
as it does for all who truly Believe!
