Can y’all believe it’s almost Christmas!! Less than two weeks until I’m cozying up to the fire with family, sharing the real meaning of Christmas then opening gifts. For as long as I can remember, we have opened our stockings on Christmas Eve. My mom and I usually did everyone’s stocking shopping. We would look for little nick nacks and things to fill them but we also always added items that were useful like soaps, toothbrushes, lotions, chapsticks. This was a great way to stock up on toiletries that we needed. Today on the blog, I’m sharing some easy stocking ideas with Walmart.
We often spent Christmas at our family lake house in Hartwell, GA. The town was small and the biggest store they had was Walmart. Mom and I would get our last minute lists together and head into town for a stocking stuffer shopping adventure at the local Walmart. We would get travel size Crest toothpaste, floss, mouthwash for everyone. We would usually get my dad a new electrical shaver and electrical toothbrushes for the kids. No joke, I really want this rose gold Oral-B toothbrush this year!
We would also fill the stockings with chapstick, mascara, candy, gloves, hair ties, candles, lipsticks and other beauty products. My mom and I would also stock up on whatever drug store makeup we were out of at the time. I remember this being such a fun time for my mom and I. It was like we were on a scavenger hunt to find fun items that everyone in our family would use but things they also needed too.
Thankfully, there are Walmarts EVERYWHERE so you can easily pop into one if you are out of town for the holidays. You can also order everything for your stockings online and either do in store pick up or delivery. My dad and Chris recently did in store pick up at a Walmart in Florida for golf balls while we were away for Thanksgiving and they couldn’t stop talking about how easy the process was.
I know people do shopping for stocking different and I would love to hear how your family does it! Let me know in the comments below.
