Is it just me or does it seem like making stockings for the guys in your life is so much more difficult than if you did so for a girl? Girls are easy stockings; throw in some lip balm, Bath and Body works stuff, some chocolate and a starbucks card and that's about all you need. Want more? Start finding cute gloves and toe socks and anything you think is cute! Boys are a different story.
Usually the hub's stocking is stuffed with candy and whatever little presents that happen to fit in the stocking but this year I have 3 different boy stockings to make so I can't just make it up as I go this year. I still am keeping half the stocking as food, because lets be honest: all boys love food. All of the guys in my case love cigars, so some inexpensive cigar accessories were also in order. Finally, I added a couple of "keep you busy" toys that they can play with/watch while I'm making breakfast that morning before we open presents.
So without further ado, here is what I am putting in my boys stockings this year!
- Wild Game Jerky
- Cigar Cedar (for lighting cigars, somehow that makes them better)
- A Cheap Blu-ray (Cyber Monday sales :) )
- Cigar Cutter
- Minibottles of Whiskey (21 and older please)
- An M&M candy cane
- A small lego kit
What are you putting in your man's stockings? Do you still do stockings when everyone is all grown up? Post your thoughts in the comments!
