Andy, we usually exchange stocking gifts too. It can sometimes be difficult to think of useful things to put in the socks...DH usually does a pathetic job (bless his heart). He says he just can't think of anything. Here are a few suggestions if you are having trouble.
Travel size toiletries
Knee high nylons (come in small plastic balls)
Razorblades (freakishly expensive)what's up with that?
Breath mints or gum
Cant go wrong with Jewelry
Mini stretch gloves
Anything from Bath and Bodyworks (lotion, soap, candles)
Craft supplies (knitting needles. Crochet hooks, scrap booking items)
Did I say jewelry?
Gift certificate to Spa or Pedicure establishment
Magazine or paperback
Pez dispenser ( just for fun)
Charm for existing bracelet
Handmade coupon book good for chores that she usually does, that you will do for her, and/or for a foot rub or back rub.
Music is always good
Nail polish (your favorite color)
Eyeglass cleaner and or repair kit
Small retractable tape measure
Oh! And don't forget.....jewelry :-)
I could go on and on.......hope two or three of these ideas will work for your SO.
Merry Christmas Andy!
