Remember last year when I told you I’m terrible at stockings? I, seriously, always wait until the last minute and they always feels like an after thought. Last year, I took my own advice and ordered items early and made the gifts more intentional. When I started to think about the stockings this year, I had an epiphany — I should just create a little formula to follow every year. This is what my parents did growing up and I always loved it. I kind of knew what was going to be in the stocking, but I was excited to see what version of a CD, tooth brush and toy they picked out for me.
This is not ground breaking, but here is my simple formula: Socks, Candy Cane of Candy, Tooth Care Item, Book, Cards/Card Game and a Treat. Below is what I’m planning for our family stockings. Do you have a formula? If so, please tell me. I’m always open to switching things up.
