DS is four and suddenly Christmas crazy. Stockings run in DH's family but not mine. I've decided I want to do one for them both.

What should I put in them?

Are you planning stockings before breakfast or are they to keep him occupied and let you have some lie-in time ?

We used to put DD & DS in the same room on Christmas Eve when they were little , so they woke up together . They woke at 5am and tried to be soo quiet as they unwrapped and chatted.

I used to wrap stocking gifts for extra impact (and time fgrin )

Are there any sweets or treats he doesn't usually have? Maybe a small packet of ones he likes.

A book (colouring book and pencils)
Fruit (satsuma or apple)

Those little Matchbox cars

Lots of toys are 3+ so more choice, my DS liked those fuzzy snakes on a clear string toys.


(I don't do stockings for adults though )

For DH so far I have a couple of miniature whiskeys, a pocket screwdriver, an air freshener for his van, pack of mints, and VIPoo as a (serious) joke gift.
For 5 yo DS so far I have chocolate coins, pot of slime, imaginext blind bags, spy pen & spy glasses, magnifying glass and a kinder egg santa.
I love stockings, they’re one of my favourite parts of Christmas. The kids come in to us with them and we all sit on the bed to open them together.
