I used the same stocking for years, it was my first stocking and was perfect. Sadly, my step-Dad housed several Christmas items in the attic, unbeknownst to Mom and some mice made a meal of my stocking. I replaced that stocking, but it sure isn't as nice as my original and perhaps I should now replace it with one of those 5-foot stockings to see if Santa could cram a widescreen TV in it?

I was afraid this might be the case.

What does everyone do for stocking stuffers? When I was a kid and even as an adult, I receive small gifts, some sugar-free candy, a DVD or two, a few personal items (Shampoo, perfume, etc) and lots of fun little items.

All I can tell ya is have a pocket full of money when you go into the store (or website for that matter). It is my dream store during the holiday season.

I always loved getting an orange in my stocking and another item I haven't received in probably 20+ years....a popcorn ball! Popcorn balls seemed to be a staple of stockings, when I was a kid, but seem to have lost some of their popularity.[/quote]
