I think stockings might be one of my favorite parts of Christmas morning. I used to love opening them, and now that I get to watch my own children open them makes it even better! When I met my husband he was not the best at stuffing stockings. He always left too much space. I remember when I was a child, our stockings were so heavy they couldn’t even hang on the mantle Christmas morning. Stockings should be stuffed with great things! And not cheap dollar store stuff that will break by the end of the day. My dad would put oranges in the bottom of our stocking if we were good that year and coal if we weren’t. I never got coal, but I’m pretty sure my brother did a few times :)

I secretly love the hunt of finding items to fit inside the stocking. So this post took me a long time to come up with some great items for both kids and babies! Happy Santa-ing!
