When my husband and I got married my mom made us handmade Christmas stockings with our names embroidered on them made from material that my great grandmother left when she died. Every time we added a new member of the family including our fur babies she would make us a new stocking. We hang them on the mantle every year and it’s the first thing we open on Christmas morning. Every time I look at them it brings back memories of my grandmother.
The hardest party is knowing what to fill them with. When the kids were younger it was so easy and I had no problems filling them. However now that they are teenagers I find it gets more difficult, especially for my son. Thankfully I have a CVS right around the corner and they have such a wide variety of products that I was able to find something for everyone this year. I thought I’d share some of my top pics for stockings that I got this year for my family.
My daughter just turned 18 and she is all about her hair so I found these cute holiday hair ties in fun fashionable colors that I know she is just going to love.
I also picked her up a Venus Olay razor, It’s one of our favorite razors and fits well in her stocking. I am also a big fan of Burts Bee’s products as well as Physicians Formula Organic makeup so these are on the top of my list for my stocking. I actually gave my husband a list which will make it super easy when he goes shopping at CVS for me lol.
For the men in my life I chose Old Spice Fiji deodorant as it’s my husbands favorite, gold emblem gummy bears, also another hubby favorite, Altoids and even some ear buds. I also picked up a phone charger, rechargeable batteries and some Hanes boxer briefs. A few other items not pictured that I would suggest for stocking stuffers for your family are chocolate, nail polish,mens razors and gift cards. CVS has a huge variety of name brand gift cards you can choose from.
What are some of your favorite things to fill stockings with?
