I have just put together Frida’s “stocking” for Christmas. I say stocking, but actually we’re using one of her socks! I figured she’s only small, and the temptation of a big stocking would be to fill it… so an 18-24 month size navy sock it is!
I didn’t have a stocking growing up, but I think the idea of her having something to open and play with in the morning is a nice idea. I would never buy something purely as a stocking filler, though – these are all things I’ve carefully selected and know she will love.
In her stocking I have put:
- Holztiger mouse (here)
- Holztiger gull (here)
- Plan Toys whale whistle (here)
- Mineral pieces from the Natural History Museum (some here but I bought them in person)
- Chocolate coins
And that’s it! I’ll pop a piece of fruit in the night before too.
I’m just waiting for her main “under the tree” present to arrive and then I’ll share her full selection of Christmas / Chanukah gifts with you too, before I wrap them!
