Waking up on Christmas morning to Christmas stockings at the end of the bed, on the door handle or pinned up on the fireplace is the stuff of fabulous childhood memories. Everyone will remember the anticipation of opening your eyes and peaking through the darkness of the early morning just to make sure the Christmas stockings are where they should be (every house has different places for hanging their special Christmas stockings!). Then came the excitement of the rummage as you dug your small, sweaty hands into the stocking to reveal a host of treats and presents.
While Santa is busy making sure your little ones have their Christmas stockings filled for the Big Day, have you thought about putting together a few surprise Christmas stockings for some of the oldies in the house? Simply find a large sock, add a tangerine and a handful of monkey nuts (as tradition dictates) and maybe a book or a pair of new socks, before then fillling the “stocking” to the brim with all your favourite person’s top sweeties.
Top suggestions for grown up Christmas stockings
For the teenagers: Anything that goes fizz, bang or pop in the sweeties department will keep the children who want to be treated like grown ups very happy indeed on Christmas morning. The perfect Christmas stockings filler sweeties for them are Dip Dabs, Popping Candy, Fizz Balls and Cola Crystals. Don’t forget to add a Gobstopper, for obvious reasons!
For dad: Think Loadsa Lovely Liquorice or Totally Chewy Toffees and Fudge for the guys in their Christmas stockings.
For sis: Make these Christmas stockings bright, colourful and full of nostalgia. So we might suggest Rainbow Drops, Fruit Bonbons, Jelly Beans and Jelly Babies. Don’t forget to add something chocolatey, too.
For Aunt Clara: Go floral, pink, lovey and she’ll be smiling from ear to ear on Christmas morning. You’ll hear her saying: “Oooh, Refreshers and Palma Violets. I so remember those. And Chocolate Limes and Rose Buds. Utter yum!”
