HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE: STOCKING STUFFERS

Our Christmas morning looks something like this: all nine grandchildren standing at the top of the stairs, our parents pouring coffee and slowly waking up downstairs, our grandmother telling us when it’s time to come down and unwrap our stocking stuffers. Then there’s a brief pause for breakfast treats before the real fun starts: opening one present at a time, from the youngest cousin to the oldest, before the parents and our grandmother do the same thing in reverse. The whole process takes hours but it’s so worth it to get to see every last gift (and reaction!). I can’t believe it’s so soon! What does your Christmas morning look like?

  1. I love this collection – such a wonderful mix of stocking stuffers!

    I’m an only child and typically, due to distance, we celebrate with just the three of us vs. extended family. It makes Christmas fairly quiet at my house, but I love it. We turn on the Christmas music, light the fireplace and I act as elf. After I go through my stocking, I pass the presents one at a time to Mom, Dad and then me. It doesn’t take too long, but it is always fun to see reactions and share stories about the buying. After that we make waffles for breakfast. Yum!

    Merry Christmas to all!!

  2. Doing Christmas with a big family sounds like so much fun! It’s usually just me, my parents, and my grandmother on Christmas morning. We open our presents and then we have fried chicken and waffles for breakfast! Oh, and mimosas of course 🙂

  3. That sounds almost exactly like my family’s Christmas! We like to take it slow and enjoy the morning. We take breaks for coffee refills and mimosas! in between rounds of presents. I love doing one present at a time because a lot of the fun for me is seeing my family’s reaction to the presents I bought them. We also don’t do a fancy Christmas dinner, just hamburgers and milkshakes! We stay in our pjs all day long so everything is super relaxed.

  4. Sounds wonderful! I think it’s great that you open gifts individually so that everyone can enjoy the person’s reaction and actually see the gift. We have far fewer people in my family but that’s how we do it. I have experienced a Christmas morning elsewhere and it was total chaos with people ripping and shouting and afterwards having no idea who even gave them what! What do they do for thank you notes then???? Have a great Christmas!
