Stockings are one of the most festive and fun Christmas traditions in my opinion. It’s so fun to dig in and see all the tiny treasures that lie inside.
Unfortunately it can also be the place for cheap, useless things to pile up. I’m not saying stockings should only have things like socks and hair ties (though those are always fun!) but the dollar store isn’t the first place you should be running to to stuff your stockings this year.
This year, put a little extra thought into the after thought that are stockings and give sustainably.
