PUMPKIN PATCH TO STOCKING STUFFERS?

I’ve heard several mentions of “stocking stuffers” and “buy several...perfect for gift giving at holidays”.

 

We’re more than a month from Halloween and what about Thanksgiving? Skipping that this year.

 

Hey QVC, life goes by fast enough. Don’t rush us.

Around Thanksgiving, they'll suggest gifts for Easter baskets, Shanus! Smiley Embarassed

They are simply selling using any angle that pops into their heads.  Many people collect gift items all year long.

@Kachina624 

You are correct.  I buy my daughter's December birthday gift usually around May thru July.  I buy many gifts and decorations during the Christmas in July.  That saves me money during the real holiday.  I do get tired of them always referring to Christmas but I have not been watching much lately as I am sooooo tired of some of the hosts.

All I know is that stocking stuffers aren't nearly as inexpensive as they used to be. It seems now no matter the cost, if it fits in the stocking it's a stuffer. One of my favorites was the little life saver book. Showing my age, I guess.

@Shanus    Don’t forget it’s almost Valentine’s Day. Stock up now on chocolates.

When they start Christmas in July in June, we don’t have a chance.  I am totally fed up.

When I was a kid, our stockings were stuffed with a tangerine, a banana, and some peanuts in the shell.  We were thrilled.  The gifts were under the tree, never wrapped (once we were teenagers, gifts were wrapped because they were from Mom and Dad instead of Santa).

 

When my children were small, their stockings also were stuffed with a tangerine and banana....with some kind of small gift...a Matchbox car for my son, some jewelry or nail polish for my daughter.  Their “regular’ gifts from Santa were wrapped and under the tree.

 

Things have certainly evolved into more elaborate stocking gifts...at least in QVC Land!
