We found the Lifesavers books in our stockings each year; until early adulthood.  We would then trade the various flavors...I was always looking to swap one of the 5 other siblings for Butterrum....

A Sees chocolate Santa was the tradition, along with usually the batteries for whatever was big under the tree and then usually art supplies like colored pens & pencils. I loved to draw when I was a kid.

We didn't have stockings and no presents could be opened until morning.  With 7 kids, we picked names from a hat and those presents went under the tree.  Everything else came from Santa!

Michael J. Perry We never put stockings out on Christmas. We would put them out on St. Nicholas Day on December 6th. We always got some fruit, candy and a little toy. This was our tradition.

Actually, we have an annual tradition started almost 20 years ago when my grandmother passed. A single stocking with her picture, and a note in Italian that translates to 'don't forget me'. My parents, inlaws and a sibling's photos are now also attached to the stocking, and it hangs on the tree so they can be with us. <3 We put flowers in the stocking.

We were poor and didn't have stockings. It was hard enough on the parents to pull off getting 3 presents for each of the 5 kids.

We had no stockings in my home when I was growing up. Our tradition was to wrap "stocking stuffer-type" gifts beautifully and put them under the tree. And we opened all of our gifts on Christmas Eve.

Stocking stuffers for my family are usually the "fun" gifts and not the more expensive ones, i.e. their favorite candy/protein bars, travel toiletries, gift cards etc...
