True or false… stockings are usually filled with the best Christmas presents?! No? Just me?
I love the small but thoughtful gifts that come out of stockings! It’s so fun to open them and see what weird assortment of cute and interesting things that your loved ones (or Santa) was able to stuff inside of a perfectly decorated, oversized sock! It’s also so fun finding and making things for other people’s stockings that say, “this reminded me of you” or “I thought you could use something like this”!
Of course, it’s always pretty easy to fill the stocking of a child. Candy, small toys, socks, DONE! But it can get a bit more tricky for adults. So here are some awesome ideas for stuffing your loved one’s stockings full of homemade goodies that they will love to open on Christmas morning!
