While shopping this holiday season for stocking stuffers to hang from the mantle keep the spirit of good cheer in the air with a similar idea. Add some of that good cheer to the dining table with some color and holiday decorations.
Stop by the dollar store on your way home and pick up some miniature red and white Christmas stockings. Use these on the table for Christmas dinner and stuff them with the silverware that will be used at each place setting.
These little stockings can be used year after year. Keep them clean and free from pulls by storing them in a sealable bag or small plastic container. You can also allow guests to bring them home as a token of holiday cheer and a thank you for joining you and your family for dinner.
Other ideas for these cute little stockings:
These little stockings are also a cute idea to fill with candies to be given out to guests as they leave for the night. A special little something they can enjoy and place on their tree the following year.
Fill the stockings with candy or crayons and seal each one in saran wrap with a red or green ribbon for your younger child’s school Christmas party.
If you are giving money or gift cards out this year stuff that gift in one of these small Christmas stockings. It will make more of an impression of the receiver of the gift than a plain white envelope would. Now they have two gifts in one.
