A popular tradition of Christmas time consists of hanging decorated stockings by the fireplace to be filled by Santa Claus on his yearly excursion. This custom may have sprung from cultures that would put their wooden shoes next to the hearth to be filled with small gifts by the benevolent St. Nicholas. As wooden shoes lost favor, regular stockings took their place on the mantel. During the tradition’s infancy in the United States – around the early 1800’s – fruit, nuts, gum and candy were often the gifts found when stockings were opened on Christmas morning.
Times have changed, and so have the contents of Christmas stockings. Now everything from keys for a new car, to a Christmas kitten can be found in the ornately decorated Christmas sock. But gift size is still an issue. Here at eFairies, we have hundreds of miniature products that will fit nicely in holiday stockings, and WOW the giftee when opened.
Jewelry is always a go-to for the CS (Christmas Stocking). The wee ones will love the Fairy Scrabble Tile Pendants, Fairy Princess Bracelet and Necklace, and Tink Rainbow Fairy Necklace. For adults, there’s the Fairy Door Necklace Charm, Double Sided Fairy Pendant, and the Silver Dichroic Necklace.
Miniature fairy houses and accessories are often easy to fit into a CS. At eFairies you can choose from pages of items such as the Mini Fairy House with Thatched Roof, Fairy Nancy Jean, the Twig Fairy Chair, or the Miniature Fairy Gazing Balls.
We have small dolls, like the Bendable Petal Pink Jewel Fairy Princess, the Hydrangea Garden Fairy, Lavender Rose Fairy, or the Lady Fairy Pink that adore hanging out in stockings. There’s also the Fairy Princess Soft Musical Doll who’s a great dolly to share bedtime lullabies with.
Fairy Dust is a must for any fairy-lover’s CS. Great stuffers include Fairy Dust Necklaces, Fairy Wings Magic Dust in a Bottle, a Fairy Dust Wand, and the Purple Glitter Fairy Wonder Wand. These items will also add magic and merriment to all holiday happenings.
Whoever said that big, wonderful things come in small packages must have been a frequent customer of eFairies.com. And it’s even better when these packages are packed into festive Christmas stockings, and “hung by the chimney with care….”.
