Stocking fillers for a crafter

My amazing dad has always organised the most ginormous stockings that you have ever seen! He disappears on Christmas eve for a few hours and returns laden with stocking fillers for me and my two sisters, even now that we are all in our thirties. Our family tradition is to wake very early on Christmas morning and all open our stockings together. It’s probably the best part of the day.

This year, I will be with Jules’s family for Christmas so I’ve created a virtual stocking for the crafter in me: crafting supplies, lovely socks to keep my feet warm whilst sewing, cream to keep my hands looking good for blog posts, a lovely mug for that all important cup of tea, and we always get a magazine in our stocking.

If you need a few extra stocking fillers before the big day, this list may give you a couple of ideas that you can pick up this weekend…

    What a cute post, love it! Stockings are a big deal in my family too, my Mum has always given me and my sister one and filled it with practical things – I swear she runs around Boots/Sainsburys, as there is always a nail file and a nail varnish. Even at 27, I’ll be having a stocking next week. 😀

    Oh good, glad I’m not the only adult who still has a stocking (and gets stupidly excited about it!) x
