I have heard a few people say that they do stockings for the parents too.  We always just had stockings for us kids when I was growing up, so I was curious do you have stockings for everyone or just kids?

My mom always had a stocking, it was just never filled with anything. When we were old enough to understand that mom wasn't getting any gifts in her stocking, we kids filled her stocking. It wasn't a surprise for her, obviously, but she loved it.

Growing up, only my brother and I had stockings.  But in hubby's family, everyone did.  So we adopted that.  It's fun to check the stockings before opening gifts!

Mom always went without to give us great Christmases... It was just something to give back.  There were alot of Christmases where she only had one gift....sometimes none. I only hope I can be even half the woman she is and has been...

We do stockings for everyone.  As kids we would have Christmas Eve dinner, (We never did dinner Christmas Day, that way mom could relax and we could enjoy our gifts)  After dinner, we would watch A Christmas Story or another Christmas movie, we'd open one gift (which was always new PJS which we'd wear to bed that night) and our stockings which held things like underwear, socks, slippers, basic toiletries. My mom would buy for my dad and vice verse. It always worked out great and though we KNEW what was in the stockings they were things we needed and appreciated.
