Do you put food or drinks in the Christmas Stockings?
We do! Some of our most favorite items are little things to snack on, stuffed in the socks. The adults are delighted to find a McCafe Frappe (perhaps they wanted to try a new flavor) and the kids and adults alike love Welch's Fruit Snacks. We buy the ones that are shaped for the season and they are really too cute to resist. Made by Welch's, you know they are going to have a delightful fruit flavor to them (and they do!). Butterfinger makes a variety of holiday versions and we always have something from them in the stockings, in fact, I make sure to slip one of the traditional candy bas in my sock as well (hey, someone's gotta do it!) so I have a tasty treat to snack on for Christmas Day. New to me, but not new to my son who had heard of them before, is the Kinder Joy egg that has a sugary sweet treat inside, but also has a toy!! If that doesn't say stocking stuffer, then I don't know what does. It's fun to have a little something-something inside the stockings, next to the other wrapped goodies (we don't wrap these), and these are all wonderful suggestions the recipients will enjoy.
