Let’s face it: girl stockings are easier than boy stockings. They always have been. If all else fails, you throw in a few hair accessories and a bottle or six of nail polish to take up the remaining space and move on with your life. After all, those are things she’ll love…right?
Yeah…for about the six seconds it takes her to realize that she already has fifteen bottles of nail polish in her room that only get opened when her friends are over for a sleepover and they’re feeling a little crazy. Or maybe she uses them every week, in which case, go for it—but keep in mind that there are only so many different shades you can buy. And when, exactly, did nail polish get so expensive?
The good news is, there are some unique things that you can put in your daughter’s stocking this Christmas, and none of them involve fingernail polish or hair accessories—you just have to be a little bit more creative. In addition, they’re things that will see more use throughout the year—so you can enjoy watching her appreciate them instead of tossing them in a basket and forgetting about them.
