Christmas stockings – shopping in Calgary

December 18, 2015

“The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there”.
A Visit from St. Nicholas,
Clement Clarke Moore

Christmas stockings are proof that good things really do come in small packages.  Leading up to Christmas, I photographed a series with Naturally Chic on couples and ideas for starting new Christmas traditions. Exchanging a stocking is the perfect tradition that allows you to recreate some of that childhood magic. The sight of a stocking full to the brim with their favorite things is a sure way to make your sweetie smile on Christmas morning. If you like the idea but don’t know where to start shopping in Calgary, Sharon from Naturally Chic has compiled a list of stocking stuffers “for her” and “for him” that are sure to get you a kiss or two under the mistletoe.
