We just do for the DCs, but it seems lots of people do for their DPs/DHs - do they do one for you?

DLI Mon 20-Oct-08 20:01:14

we just do it for DS.

DD1, DD2, DS and DH.

I'm foreign and not really into the whole stocking thing.

i give guests little treats with their dinner, nothing too much just little parcels of chocolates etc instead, a little surprise after the big surprises

DLI - thats what I've been doing too, Last year I wrap up a Terry's chocolate orange with a lottery scratch card on top, wrapped beautifully.

DLI Mon 20-Oct-08 21:11:05

i think it is so much nicer because it makes the meal a little more special

Flier Mon 20-Oct-08 21:13:33

hmm, will need to think what to have for this year for table surprises smile

everyone in the house gets one. this yr that will be mil, fil, poss sil, dh, dc and me. grin stocking shopping is my fave part of the shopping!

DLI Mon 20-Oct-08 21:20:37

flier, what about individual alcoholic drinks for the men and small "tester" bottles of perfume for the women, you know the one's you can buy for about £3.50/£4, for the children chocolate is always a winner!

Flier Mon 20-Oct-08 21:22:56

good idea, thanks DLI wink

ja9, do you spend all year doing stocking shopping?
I do love making up the dcs stockings

jenk1 Mon 20-Oct-08 21:27:09

I do a stocking for DD, DH and DH will do one for me.

This year I am doing the table gift thing too.

I have favour boxes in the shape of crackers which will have a wine glass charm in them grin We have lunch at my grandma's house so in all there will be me, dh, dd, dad, step mum, gran and great uncle.

DD1,2 and 3 and Dh. He does a stocking for me.

I did one for dh the first year we were married and he got upset that I didn't do one the next year! So, I've done it every year for him and for dd once she was born (well, actually she was 4m on her first Xmas so I didn't). Last year, they did one for me, but that was the first time.
