Not weird at all.  My parents actually make stocking stuffers the highlight of their Christmas, and they’re semi-retired adults with no grandkids.  They have good incomes and already buy the big gift items as they need them, so stockings are a lot more interesting and fun for them.  It’s gotten to the point where they put a supplementary bag behind each stocking of the things they could not stuff into the tiny stocking.  FI and I don’t go as crazy with ours – I’m getting him a CD, a beer mug with a picture of the Hulk on it, some candy and food items, and maybe a new mini screwdriver (he broke his set earlier this year).

I love stockings! My family has continued doing them even though we’re all grown up now, and now that my Fiance will be spending Christmas morning with us this year, I’m looking forward to stuffing a stocking for him too. I don’t think it’s only for kids πŸ™‚

@OtterHalf:  Same here. Our limit is a little higher ($50-75), but it’s fun!

We do stockings and we don’t have kids, though we do have dogs and they get their own stockings, too πŸ™‚

This year I put a couple of DVDs in there that my DH has been wanting, candy, iTunes gift cards (I got him an iPad Air for xmas so the gift cards are for apps), razors, and Dove men’s body wash. I might make some homemade butterfinger bars (saw a recipe on Pinterest) and throw those in there, too. My DH and I always buy each other a set of pajamas to exchange and wear on xmas eve so I tried to stuff those in there as well – he has a big stocking lol.

@StephieBee:  haha my DH got me some of those giant reeses cups last year! I was sitting there cutting it with a knife like it was cake. So funny. I got him a giant Snickers bar this year πŸ˜›

@RenoSweeney24:  Oh heck no it isn’t weird. DH’s stocking is already full. I mostly put food items in there like Almond Joys, jerky, and beef sticks and popcorn. And if I find anything that’s cool πŸ˜‰

Not weird at all! We do a stocking for me, one for Fiance, and one for the cat πŸ™‚

We won’t be doing it this year, but when we do, it’s normally gift cards, games and chocolate.

Our first Christmas in our house I bought DH a stocking of his favourite sports team. He is the only one in the house with one (apparently the cat and I aren’t deserving….) he gets the usual things; socks, underwear, hunting magazines, books, primers, candy…..

I started the stocking tradition with my Fiance last year since it was would the first Christmas morning we could actually spend together. Last year I stuffed his with….”adult” things as more of a gag gift which he thought was hilarious and have come to great use since then πŸ˜‰

This year I was a little more tame and just stuffed his with candy, etc.

We have kids and I only stuff their stockings.  I never did stockings as a kid and dh and I never had stockings pre-kids.

@RenoSweeney24:  cologne, candy, boxers/underwear are always good.
