like to receive sweet treats in their Christmas stockings? They should taste right and embody Christmas cheer.
Classic Candy Canes
Admit it, once a year you like peeling
back the plastic wrapper and sucking on that red and white
Ferrero Rocher Chocolate
The spherical shape. The gold foil
wrapper. The little stamp of elegance. These luxurious Italian
names, you know that if you see a certain franchise coffee shop's
gift card in your stocking, you're going to use it in the next week.
It's a guilty pleasure for all of us. Go ahead. Place an order for a "grande" or "venti."
Preferably milk or
dark chocolate covered pretzels, but if white chocolate is more to
your liking, so be it. Chocolate-covered anything makes
for an excellent find on Christmas morning. Check out amazon.com for all sorts of chocolate-covered pretzel gift baskets for under $20.
Mini Liquor Bottles
If you're pining
for relief from the sights and sounds of festive,
familial Christmas cheer, nothing will satisfy your craving like liquor. For a discrete escape, keep the mini bottles
hidden in the stocking and tote it around the house. Just about any liquor you can think of can be found here.
