It makes me feel very sad
What sort of parent would not bother to do their own child's stocking??

although in my defense the last few Christmases have been extremely tight where the DS's were lucky to get a present to unwrap in the morning, let along buy stuff and fill stockings. Before that the DS1 was too young for it to make any sense/point.

Do intend to try and do them this year though

well that is different FAQ

If you can afford £15 why not do a stocking yourself?

FAQ Thu 16-Oct-08 23:45:46

oh if I do them this year I won't be buying a pre-filled one was just saying that some people may - oh god I've forgotten what I'm trying to say blush <<<<<<<realises her shitty cold is making her talk utter shite>>>>>>

I'd buy one if it seemed good value for money and it does claim that it is cheaper to buy than getting all the items indivudually.

i got prestuffed party bags for ds2's bday party in the summer - that was just plain cunning tho, no? grin

I do the stockings myself but I can actually see the sense of buying those. I tend to go a bit crazy and end up spending more than the ones on that site cost.

Surely a stocking can't be male? <trundles off to pedants corner>
