Gifts for the Holidays: Stocking Stuffers Edition

One of my favorite parts of waking up Christmas morning has always been watching everyone explore their stockings.

One of my favorite things to "stuff" in my kiddos stockings is you guessed it...underwear. To be honest my teenage son actually said he looks forward to it because he knows every year he can count on getting new underwear and socks on Christmas morning. Underwear is one of those things that we all have to have, but don't always think about picking up. Especially teenagers that are exploring life on their own for the first time! So why not add it to their Christmas list every year by dropping a package in their stocking. Trust me they might give you a funny look at first, but they will be secretly thrilled inside! :-)
