- about a cup of mixed nuts (in their shells--very pretty)
- an orange, couple of tangerines, and a red and green apple (I like the smaller apples)
- Christmas candy (something that won't melt!)
- and a small gift or two (could be a handmade ornament for the family tree, or for an individual, socks, gloves--a tie for men or missionaries, scarf for a woman, small toy for a child)
Distribute the items evenly throughout the stocking. Then tie with curling ribbon. They can be made assembly line fashion and generic so that each family gets the same thing, or you can make them by males and females each sex getting the same items. Or if you do them for your own family members like I do (five in all), I make the small gift a little more personal. This is also a nice gift for visiting and home teaching families and employees or coworkers.
