What goes in a Christmas stocking?

For most families, hanging a stocking up on Christmas Eve is a beloved annual tradition. But what do you put in these sock-shaped bags? We've got lots of ideas to get you started.

  • Socks - these small and inexpensive items are ideal stocking fillers. Go for a practical plain design or choose a fun print to reflect their personality.
  • Puzzles & Games - small puzzles and games to play together are a great way to extend family time into the evening.
  • Beauty bits - pop some make up items in their stocking for some last minute glitz and glam for the big day.
  • Snacks - sometimes the wait for Christmas dinner can feel unbearable. Whilst its traditional to pop an orange in stockings, your family might be more grateful for a little treat.
