What did you do for stocking stuffers this year? And how much do you generally spend per stocking?



I filled my three kids and my husbands stocking and it cost me about 150 bucks. I feel like that was way too much. But in reality I got them each a package of fun socks, two smallish toys and filled the rest with candies. My youngest is only 8 months old so he gots socks, bibs, teethers, new pacifiers, and a soft snuggly toy.



The kids each got a book, too to be hidden in the tree.

We probably spent $200 on stockings for our two kids. We went to a toy store called The Learning Place. They have the neatest little toys. We got them all sorts of little toys that aren't junky and are unusual.

I usually try to not spend more than $20 ea. My mom adds a lot of stuff to them as well. It's just little inexpensive things like coloring books and accessories. Slinkies, rubics cubes, bath toys, candies.. That type of thing. DH gets coal.

No fun. Our stockings are huge. About 1 1/2 feet long and 8 inches wide. I always have to find random crap to take up room in them

Haven't done anything for stockings yet (hopefully tomorrow) but I really don't want to spend more than $40 on both DH's and LB's stockings.

I got him a robot waterbottle ($1.00), jump rope, toy story squinkies, bandaids, an m&m candy cane, a loofa. I think that's it. Probably more though. I was determined to keep it pretty candy and junk free this year. He's eaten nothing but candy and cookies for the past week, he doesn't need his own stash lol

We don't put much in their stockings, since I think it's more fun to have the "real" gifts wrapped and under the tree. We reserve stockings for candy/goodies and more practical stuff that they'd get anytime they needed it throughout the year (like hair ties, toothbrush, cologne for DH, etc.), but just happen to need at Christmas.

I'm lame with stockings. We have plain ones for the girls. DH and I don't have stockings.



These are the stockings the girls have and I painted their names on them.
