I find I need to fill them gradually b/c I can't necessarily think of gifts all at once. I mix a few silly things in there with cool stuff.
This yr I put in--
-dehydrated snack for hiking
-a protein bar
-special hangers for the garage
-crossword puzzle book
I can't even remember what else is in there.
I really like this idea!
"[-]But caging them, killing them, eating them was unthinkable. We were creatures of the same world."
I wrap up a few DVD's and CD's and put them in there
We get other small stuff that will gets lost in the hussle and bussle of the holidays.
I used to have a stocking for my cats but since the move i don't know where they are at, so I got them small stocking each and I got them some toys and wrapped them up and put them in the stocking and then hung the small stockings on the tree.
It varies each year what we put in the stockings
We usually open our stockings after we open our normal gifts first on Christmas day or the day we celebrate Christmas.
My mom always put an orange and an apple in the bottom when we were kids. I can still remember the wonderful smell of the fruit along with peppermint sticks. Good memories.
I've never heard of this before!!
For us it's usually: candy, gum, gift cards, slipper socks, chapstick, small candles and toiletries
