The Stocking Dilemma

A number of years ago, a good friend and I decided that we were sick of waking up each Christmas morning and finding out stockings unfilled. Santa always brought us nice gifts but continually neglected our stockings. So, I gave her my stocking with a list in it of little things that I liked, and she did the same for me. On Christmas Eve, we rendezvoused and handed back each other's stockings filled with fun surprises. We had agreed that we should get some of the things on the lists, not all of them, and it was okay to put in things that we thought each other might like as well. It was SO fun!

That friend has since moved away, so sad, but I thought I'd pose the question just because her list was so eye-opening to me; it said things about her life and personality. What would you ask to have in your stocking?

I just realized I've never spelled "rendezvoused" before.

That is seriously the cutest idea ever. If I didn't already have such a great stocking filler in my hub, I'd definitely swap with someone else.

I'd just want iTunes gift cards and chocolate, that would set me up forever.

How fun! I grew up getting fun treats that we didn't get on a regular basis at our home. Like See's candy, and really yummy nuts. I don't think you can fit a clean house in a stocking--wish you could though.

I would want really good chocolate covered cherries. Jamba Juice card and pretty hair clips.
