    How many stockings do you need to fill? What will you be putting in them? I will be filling three, and is always looking for new ideas. Feel free to share your ideas here with everyone.

    I got one stocking (got it with one of the ornament exchanges ) and it's on the mantel all year round. We do not have the tradition of putting gifts in it so it's there just for fun.

    I fill three stockings. My husband, myself, and our cat Oliver. For my husband, I fill it with deodorant, tic tacs, dental floss, the trees that are car deodorizers, candy, and any small item I've bought for him. For me, my husband fills it with deodorant, dental floss, makeup, pocket calendar, candy, and any small item he thinks I might like. The cat gets kitty toys, and kitty cookies.

    I just got stockings for the cats and for my boyfriend and myself. It is our first Christmas doing stockings together so I am really excited. We are putting together the cats' stockings already. We have toys and catnip. There will likely be a ton more toys and some treats in there. They actually get very excited about it.

    In the boyfriend's stocking, I will likely put a pair of headphones, some fruit/candy, and a few other small things that I think of along the way.

    I will be filling one stocking, and it's for my hubby. I do his and he does mine. We both wrap the presents we put inside the stockings to make it more fun and exciting to open.

    4 this year. We started doing the elf on the shelf with our oldest son a few years back. The elf shows up the Sunday after thanksgiving and every so often leaves a small present in our sons stockings until he leaves Christmas Eve night.
