    Christmas "stockings"- What do you put in them?

    Advertisements
    [DH and I were talking last night about his nieces and nephew and Christmas. He says they are the type who want more not more expensive. So I told DH that I was going to start looking for little things for them. I'm already planning on getting the girls bows from MarineBug.]

    So what do you put in your kid(s)' stockings? I think K and S will be easy. But B is less than a year old... and E... well besides Hot Wheels, what do you put in a little boy's stocking?

    ETA:
    Nieces
    K- 6
    S- 2... almost 3
    B- 9 months-ish

    Nephew
    E- 1 year

    lol, I carry on a tradition my parents started. It pissed me off when I was a kid, but looking back it wasnt too bad.

    My kids get "neat" dental stuff. They each get 2 of the new motorized toothbrushes, one sings I think. The neat mouth wash that shows plaque and the fluorscent colored dental picks/floss. We also put some sugar free candies in their stockings. I might stick a couple other little random things in there as well.

    Candy, fruit, socks, small things like hair ties, small craft boxes (24 crayola) ,coloring book rolled up, GI joes.

    Go to a dollar store and buy things like that.

    My mom still puts toothbrushes, deodorant, razers, bodywash, etc in mine. DS gets cars, trains, coloring books, crayons, bubble bath stuff, bath toys, socks, undies, etc.

    Maybe their stocking can be part of the gift? I got D a Lightening McQueen stocking that sang last year. Toys R Us usually has a bunch of different ones.

    I always do some practical things for stockings - but stuff my son will think is fun - This year its going to be bath toys and bath markers, a new toothbrush and toddler toothpaste, crayons and finger paint, and some kids snacks like puffs and wagon wheels and things of that nature!
