My daughter doesn't yet realize that toys come with happy meals. I take the toys and save them for her stocking.

That is a brilliant idea!

I am stealing this idea for the future when I become a mom!

This won't help the OP with her boyfriend, but I make "floozie koozies"- decorative, girly koozies. They are such a huge hit with women. You can get a solid colored koozie at craft stores for a buck, then just go to town with whatever you want- jewels, boas, fabric, team logos, initials, ribbon- the possiblities are endless, and you can customize it to each person.

Always chocolate coins as a tribute to the origin of Christmas stockings. A candy cane. And for some reason, men (and boys) always seem to love flashlights. Which would mean adding extra batteries to the stocking as well.

As a kid, Santa ALWAYS gave me a GIANT Hershey kiss and a GIANT peppermint stick.  I am going to pass that down to my kids. I can't wait! I even found mini-giant Hershey kisses. Hee hee.  Smaller than the giant ones, much bigger than the normal ones. And I also got chocolate coins, too. I wonder now if that was mom's tribute to the origin of stockings...

-scarf/hat
-sports tickets
-smores packages (which you can totally make in the oven. I made these for friends last year and they were a hit)
-choc. dipped spoons for hot choc.
-get a big chip-board letter and gussy it up with papers, embelishments, etc. (these make cute personalized gifts)
-ornament of your bf/hubby's fav sports team, alma matter, etc.
-funky dress socks for guys.. there are some really neat patterns/designs out there these days.. doesn't have to be black or grey (:

oh duh.. this just came to me.. Lush makes some pretty fab "manly" soap and massage bars (their cinnamon massage bar is ahhhmazing (: hehe) These were some of my bf's favs last year.. (: I think the bars are like $5-6 and the soap depends on size.. anddd you can ask for free samples of the soaps too for other stockings (:

Also, ladies, for your friends or even yourself (I do it often!) Sephora offers free samples of ANY Of their products.. they will customize samples of your choice - even fragrance (they put samples in the mini test tubes!) ... sooo if you wanna try a few new things, check it out! Orrrr save them for mini beauty bags for friends/fam. stockings (:

I'm bookmarking this thread for reference this year!  Cheesy So many good ideas...

My husband and I don't do stockings usually (I started him a WoW themed stocking last year but didn't get it sewn in time), but I've given stuffed stockings to my coworkers in previous years and they included things like themed post-its (I get these letter shaped ones from Michael's $1 bins each year), Christmas pencils, an ornament, some lotion or hand sanitizer, some candies or cookies and maybe a small (affordable) peice of jewelry. Nothing really fancy but they always appreciate it.
