At our house, during the holidays, we hang up our stockings the night before St. Nicholas Day for St. Nick to fill. He usually brings an orange, chocolate coins, and a few simple presents.
Santa Claus fills our stockings on Christmas Eve, too. And, sometimes, particularly if the holiday season has little ones feeling extra antsy and struggling with patience, an Elf might leave a note with a small treat or two on a random day – maybe the ingredients to bake cookies? Or a holiday themed coloring book?
With three stockings to fill twice, I think about what to put in them quite a bit – from the practical to the silly. I’ve been gathering up some stocking stuffer ideas to share with you.
