Stocking Stuffer: Letter to Your Child

Stocking stuffers are often inexpensive toys, but how about something free and memorable? Here's a creative idea that can become a treasured family tradition.

Consider writing a Christmas letter to your baby/child. It can be a reflection of the past year highlighting their birth or birthday, milestones, family vacation and your feelings towards them (love, pride, etc). Each child can read their letter aloud once they are old enough or you can read it to them on Christmas morning. Then add the Christmas letter to their scrapbook or create a special memory book with enough pages to add Christmas letters for years to come.

If you're not sure where to start, check out this list of Seven Words to Include in a Letter to Your Child. This is also a great tradition for birthdays too.
