Until now I have blogged about a lot of different things you can make and give but this week it is all about how you give the gift.
A home made Christmas Stocking could be the perfect way.
I just drew up my own pattern and made it using some Christmas fabric and ribbon. Christmas stockings can be made to any size and you can make them as simple or as complicated as you like.

Christmas stockings are also great when it comes to presents for Santa. Depending on how big you make the stocking Santa can only leave gifts that fit inside it. This means Santa does not have to spend extra money buying enough to fill a pillowcase or Santa Sack and the bigger gifts can be given by Mums and Dads.
At our house Santa typically leaves things like chocolate, lollies, earrings (for me), CD's, Water Bombs (Hubby is a big fan of bombing people after a few drinks and here in QLD it is normally so hot no one cares)
socks and jocks and movie tickets. Basically anything that can fit.
How does Santa leave the gifts at your house?
