Nothing says 'I forgot about you' quite like a stocking filled to the brim with chocolate and satsumas. The stocking has been part of Christmas tradition for centuries and for many, children and adults alike, it can often be the best part of Christmas morning. They say it’s better to give than to receive and shopping for stocking fillers is a chance to find fun, quirky and inexpensive gifts for your loved-one without the pressure of perfecting the main present event.

The most popular legend about why stockings are hung at Christmas claims that they began as an act of charity from good old St Nic to two impoverished sisters who had no chance of marriage because of their lack of fortune. One night, he slid down the chimney of the family’s house and filled the girls’ recently laundered stockings, which happened to be drying by the fire, with gold coins. The gold coins have since been replaced with chocolate coins and satsumas but the tradition remains.
