Well, I’m guessing your stockings are no longer hung by the chimney with care since Christmas has been over for about a month now. Â I usually post about what I’d like to find in my stocking BEFORE Christmas, but this year I’m writing about my stocking wishes after the fact.
Actually, in Italy, we do the stocking thing on the night of January 5th, not December 24th. Â So I’m not all that late for the Italian holiday, which, fyi, is known as the Befana.
I made my stocking list on Pinterest this year and think that it’s a fabulous way to keep track of these kinds of presents. Â Why? Â A) You have a picture that gives you an immediate visual and 2) You have a link that (usually) takes you to a site where you can buy that item or at least find out more about it. Â If you’re playing Santa for someone and they have a list like this, it makes your “job” so much easier! Â Plus, Santa’s helpers can leave comments like, “I heard through the Elf grapevine that this stocking stuffer has already been accounted for.” Â (Disclaimer: I’m currently rather obsessed with Pinterest, so my opinion here may be slightly biased)
