Can I get some christmas stocking help please?

Hi all I am asking for advice for ideas of what to put in my kids stockings. I have my 2 year old son covered but I am really at a loss for my daughter who turns 1 on New Years Eve, and although he can't use it or see it but I Am making a stocking for my son who is in NICU as he will be there during christmas because he was born so prematurely. I can't go the holiday season and not do anything for him even though he doesn't know it. Anyways any ideas are greatfully appreciated, I am racking my brain and not really getting anywhere

  • For your DD, maybe something like jewelry, those gerber puffs snacks, some cute hair bows, maybe a baby doll? My DD is 1.5 and so far I have a bracelet for her and a holiday Barbie...We just started shopping, though, so there will definitely be more!
    For your son in the NICU, maybe a GloWorm (my kids LOVED those and still sleep with them, they are 2.5 and 1.5), some cute socks, pacis (if you want to use them), a receiving blanket, etc. Just some cute little baby stuff.

  • Target has some great princess and superhero stuff in the dollar spot section.

  • For your Daughter, do some plastic ware little forks and spoons, maybe a few princess sippy cups, balls, baby doll,

    For your sweet boy in the NICU I think the stocking is a wonderful idea. Maybe a handmade blanket, just a small one, pacifiers, a monogrammed baby hat.

  • When my kids were little, I put some things in their stockings that they needed, mittens, socks, toothbrush, special toothpaste, hair brush, etc....then a few small toys.

  • i got my 10mo old son a coloring book and colors (the fat ones) he can at least scibble on the page... and a teddy bear, going to get candy(suckers) and i put a dvd in there for him. as for the little baby who will be in my prayers i would think a teddy, a couple passys, just things a baby will use and need as they grow up. i know its nothing special but keep in mind he/she isnt going to remember it anyway so get things they need but dont forget toys!!!!! gives thems something to do other than play with mommie which i dont mind doing..sons blocks are fun...i build he knocks down....hey theres something for your daughter...foam building blocks

  • hey girly hope your babby is doing well . i would cut up a t-shirt or a flannel top of some pjs and sew them up together so your son could have a blanky that smells like you for the nicu i did this and it a small one but he would have the scent of you. for the girly some hair ribons baretts maybe some fun bath toy from the dollar store they have great stuff
