these are the stockings I made for my boys about 10 years ago out of cotton velveteen and felt. They look like they could use a little more embellishing, but that will have to wait for another year. Some of their traditional treats are maple sugar Santas, chocolate gold coins (from See's) which I will eat if they don't, and those little boxes of Japanese rice treats. And those chocolate oranges that come in a box...I then add as many weird little toys and items for personal grooming that I can fit in the stocking. Even my almost 17 year old looks forward to this family tradition.
