Christmas morning in our house is always crazy. Michael is open early and he wants to open his presents right then and there but honestly I would love to sleep in just a few more minutes and I can’t function without a coffee so to tie him over until we at least get some breakfast going we let him open his stocking.
Apart from doing my stocking (as you know its super easy to stuff that stocking up with fun little trinkets and stuff), I love putting together Michael’s stocking. I am always on the hunt for fun little things to stuff inside.
For Christmas (and Easter) I always give a new tooth brush and tooth paste (sadly the kind he really enjoys isn’t available any where), and Cars lip balm (he always has dry lips.
Then I always make it a point to throw in a hot chocolate (that Snoopy one is his favorite) and some Lindt chocolate bears (his favorite).
Since he loves hockey (and is bummed that the NHL is still on strike) I picked up some hockey cards (he is going to be so happy when he sees his favorite Canadian Brian Gionta in the pack), a Montreal Canadians pen and pocket agenda and he can use his Angry Birds stickers to mark important dates with.
Not stocking would be complete without some toys so I always get him a couple of packs of Lego minifigures, moshi monster cards and a peg game.
I also throw in a chapters gift card to go along with the bookmark. Then to top of the stocking he gets his favorite magazine Phineas and Ferb.
There are so many great things you can stuff into a kids stocking. This will entertain him while breakfast is cooking.
Happy Holidays Everyone
