Every year I attend a couple of ladies Christmas parties. Sometimes we exchange gifts at the parties and other times we just enjoy each others fellowship. This year at the ladies Christmas party at church everyone was asked to "Fill their Stockings" with gifts. My girls always attend this party and we had a lot of fun trying to decide what to include in our stockings.
These are the socks that I chose. Actually Amber found a two pack of socks and the other pair was zebra striped, so I took the second pair.
I chose to put a coffee mug with homemade hot chocolate, Mexican hot chocolate, spiced chai, and homemade marshmallows.
Here are Amber's zebra socks.
She chose her favorite things to put in her stockings. She was secretly hoping she would get her present. She chose an ice cream dish, 2 small ice creams, hot fudge, and a spoon.
Delaney chose the cutest snowman socks. She wanted to include something that would make them really stand out.
She put a coke in one and a snowman hand soap in the other.
Alaina and the other younger girls chose to exchange their socks with each other instead of with the adults and big girls. She already had her socks wrapped up and didn't want to open them for a picture. She picked out a hello kitty toy and a plastic cup with a straw for her other one.
Everyone had so much fun choosing a pair of socks and watching what everyone had in theirs. The girls and I had a lot of fun brainstorming our ideas and actually we came up with a lot.
What creative ways have you used to exchange gifts?
