I can’t remember if I already told you all that I never really had stockings growing up.  As soon as Erik and I were married with kiddos, it was the first thing I wanted to incorporate into our family traditions! I really over-stress about gift giving and wanting to find the best ideas I can to make the holiday special for everyone.  I reached out to friends on Facebook for their thoughts and have used some ideas here.  This list doesn’t stop here because my blog friend Jessica over at FOREVER & A DAY has a top 10 list too and together we have 20 TOTAL of the BEST stocking stuffers!   There is still time to shop and we tried to focus on the items that you could get easily without having to worry about buying online and shipping becoming a problem!

Love the idea of magazines, I never think to add those. And of course, you can win me over with nail polish or accessories!

P.S. The Christmas card was beautiful. Thanks!
