a few of my favorite things- stocking stuffers

good morning!
i am so happy to be back again to link up with AprilZelleElise, and Katie for their 'favorite things link-up' to share our favorite stocking stuffers. 
growing up, we celebrated st. nick on december 6 every year 
we would write a letter to santa with our christmas wish list 
{usually attaching the sears catalog photos of toys we wanted most}
the next morning, we would wake up to candy, oranges, and a few small gifts
 our letters would be gone
off to the north pole
our grandma cross-stiched our stockings for us
 -all eleven grandkids- 
which also made the event even more special each year
she's such a sweet and talented lady
here are a few ideas for you that i would be ecstatic to receive in my stocking:

what are your favorite stocking stuffers?

does your family stock stockings?


  1. Oh my goodness, friend. The story about the cross-stitched stockings filled with oranges and candy reminds me so much of what my grandma would do for us when we were younger! We didn't write letters to Santa, but we would get the stockings on Christmas day when we went to her house. We haven't done that in years, and you just reminded me of that sweet memory. :)

    Oh, and what great stocking stuffer ideas! I just showed my husband to give him some ideas. Since we are going to NYC at the end of December, we are going light on the gifts. So we are just filling each other's stockings. :) I love those socks!!

  2. We always had oranges in our stockings too! This is a great list. I need to find something to stick in my coworkers stockings. :-)
