stocking What do you put in that stocking?

We talked about where the stockings get hung, but what do you put in them?
We put a variety of things, something different every year. Candy, lip balm, nail files, gum, small cars, lego etc.

Usually some mindless array of penny candy... I often put Christmas mix CD's and my Christmas comics in my brothers' and sisters' stockings, as well...

When my kids were small I found it so much easier to fill the stockings for the girls, I had to be a bit more creative to fill my sons stocking. Then one year my Mother had a lady make them stockins, they were huge so I had to find more stuff to put in them.

Girls according to their ages consisted of: hair accessories; unique pens/pencils; small notebooks; make-up; maybe a cassette (remember them); jewerlry; perfume; lotions and etc.

My son according to age: cars, trucks; pencils/pens of course something that had the camo design on it (one year that's all he wanted camo stuff).

I always put in some candy, sometimes the big candy canes; or the small candy canes and of course something of chocolate.

Well last year in my boyfriends stocking I put some cards, candy, gift certificates, dvd, some little homemade coupons for things and I think that was it.

Depends on what I think would be fun, or whimsical... always chocolate coins, candy cane(s) or some silly thing.. One year I put a pocket watch in my hubby's stocking.

We have two stockings. One with gifts in it from each other and one with gifts from santa. The ones from each other are gifts that cost five dollars or under. So it just depends on what everyone finds that they think the other person will like. The ones from santa are usually full of candy and lottery scratch off tickets.
