We all know that it is the women in our lives that make Christmas happen. They deck the halls, wrap the presents, bake the cookies, get up early to fix the Christmas morning breakfast, remind you to light to Yule log, cook the turkey while you drink the beer, and clean it all up afterwards. Thank the ladies this year by filling their stockings to the brim with feminine treats. All items on this list are under $15.
For the first time since we have lived together, my husband and I are not travelling to see family on Christmas. We realized that this means we don’t have any parents to fill stocking for us. I became very excited to shop for “stocking stuffers” for the first time in my life and lovingly fill a stocking for my hubs. One problem was immediately brought to my attention: we don’t own stockings. Since I am not a skilled knitter, we went to our local fabric store to pick our stocking fabric. After my husband not being able to find his first choice – anything with cats on it – and after me discouraging him from choosing a Hanukkah themed print, camouflage, digital camouflage, animal print, fur and leather (seriously, what’s wrong with this guy?), he decided on the green fabric below. I then picked the red one to match because I hold all the sanity of the relationship.
