Better then satsumas and walnuts – Great Stocking Fillers

In the McGrath household we have a great tradition of giving Christmas Stockings at the Yuletide, thanks to Mrs Mc, and this can be a great way to not only spoil someone special but a great way to buy lots of little thoughtful gifts for that hard to buy for person. Golden rule you need to remember is the gifts don’t have to cost a fortune, OK we’re not talking a ram raid on a pound shop but, put a bit of thought into it.
