    Does anyone still do christmas stockings?

    I'm thinking of doing personalised stockings as gifts for everyone this xmas, maybe even selling some if I don't bodge them up too much :rofl:

    Here's hoping everyone doesn't open them and think "Wtf... these things are from last century" :blush:

    We do stockings! They are part of the Xmas fun!! My parents still always do ones for DH and I. My dad lives out of state so he usually sends us our presents, and he always includes a stocking full of great stuff! I've got a little collection from my dad, cause he always sends new stockings. My mom always hangs stockings for us at her house too!!

    Thats a great idea to do personalized ones. We had a Xmas tree at work one year and we all made little personalized stockings and hung them on the tree. Then our manager filled them!!

    Yup I still do the stockings...

    I do my mums, dads, older brothers, mums dog and OH.

    My brother contributes to my mums a bit too.

    It was my 1st Christmas with OH last year and he hadnt had a sock since he was a child so my mum bought him one and helped me fill it. Awww...

    :rofl: Yes i have a a stocking which has my name on it i have had for ages
    it gets put up on the fireplace and dh puts small presents like jewellery etc in it as well all my fruit Lol

    We always have all fruit and nuts in our stockings and the small gifts or money they also go in it its always been like that even though we have a bowl full of fruit,

    Its crazy isnt it but at christmas every one goes crazy for fruit buying it i mean , I buy fruit any way but last christmas i bought like way to much dh eats it till it comes out of his ears Lol but i think i bought way to many

    I get a massive shop at christmas and people say its only for a few days etc
    but i get sweets and goodies galore the cuboards our ram packed

    Does any one elsa go ott at christmas :rofl:
    Oh well its christmas isnt it after all Lol

    We all have stockings! Wouldn't be Christmas without them, though I am going to suggest to my Mum that we can survive with smaller ones now - she's still giving us 2 foot long stockings filled to the brim, must cost a fortune!

    Yeah, she claims it's because of my little sister (who's 22) would be upset if she didn't do it, but we all know it's her really wanting to!

    We get chocolate coins and fruit, then useful stuff like face wash, moisturiser, manicure sets and cotton wool pads and then little presents. It's the only thing we're allowed to open Christmas morning, everything else has to wait til around 4pm.
