This year will be my daughter’s first Christmas. Her Dad and I decided that we probably wouldn’t really get her anything because a) we’re constantly spoiling her anyway -she only needs to throw a smile in the direction of a stuffed animal and we’re at the checkout! and b) her grandparents are going to go absolutely nuts!
So of course I’ve bought a few bits. “Just enough to fill a stocking” I reasoned to my husband. A few books, a couple of items of clothing, a new Lamaze toy, some festive jimjams…. And suddenly before I knew it, I have too much to fit in a stocking!
I remember from my own childhood, the excitement of hanging my very own (very gaudy) personalised stocking up ready for Santa’s arrival. It was so exciting to think he must have known exactly who I was to put presents in a stocking with my name on. So, with that in mind I have ordered a personalised sack for us to roll out every year.
I went for this one from The Handmade Christmas Company. I liked that I could pick the font and text colour
Let’s hope she’s well behaved every year so it gets filled up!
