As much as I love watching the kids attack the presents that are under the tree, I love to watch them go through their stockings even more. Christmas stockings are always full of mystery and fun, and anyone who spends Christmas at our house gets a stocking, even the dog.
A great Christmas stocking is a mix of edibles and gifts. The best place to find last-minute stocking stuffers of all kinds -- is Cost Plus World Market (2%).
They have all the best gifts which are always small and usually a combination of whimsical and practical. Socks are out but sparkly pencils are in. Miniature writing pads are in, as are puzzles. I love the little wooden ones that stretch your brain. Fruit and nuts are always in, and chocolate in abundance. Chocolate coins for the kids, rich dark bars with hazelnuts for him and a chocolate orange for my mom. Giant candy canes are always in, though I have to be careful not to break them on the way home from the store.
There is only one day left to get the stockings filled with delicious mysteries, go to Cost Plus today!
