My Stocking: Elizabeth from Seagrass Studio

Welcome to the 5th annual My Stocking series! I always look forward to having some of my favorite, fellow bloggers from Boston and beyond share what is on their wish list this season, all that fits in a stocking! It also serves as a gift guide, for me personally, as I often end up purchasing something off someone's list a family or friend.  First up, the lovely Elizabeth from Seagrass Studio.
My Stocking: Seagrass Studio

I made stockings for each of my children when they were born, but I'm thinking I should package them up to preserve them and pick up this Tyvec stocking from CB2. It's shiny and festive but also indestructible, and I can personalize them with a Sharpie. (love this idea!)

For the tech lovers in our house (read: me), photojojo always has great accessories. I think I'll stuff this iPhone shutter remote in my own stocking. It works with a gazillion different DSLRs and acts as a trigger for your camera's shutter. You can set it to go off with any number of triggers including motion, sound, time-lapse and more.

I think it's important to support fellow small businesses, and I love giving gifts that are handmade, so I was thrilled when I found Amelia Santiago. It's on the pricier end, but I gave my husband a needle felted portrait of our dog a few years ago, and it's a treasure. (if you follow #fenwayfotos on instagram you'll understand why)

Teenagers are the worst to buy for, especially boys. With my kids, and most of my nephews & nieces, away at school this t-shirt would be a great way to remind of where they're from. I think if I learn how to origami fold it into a fortune cookie shape, I can stuff a little cash in as a surprise. Cash is king in the world of teenagers.

If you're feeling charitable, you can follow our family's lead. A few years ago, my parents and I began a tradition of exchanging donations in lieu of gifts. We donate to Globe Santa in their names. We've also done this as a thank you for teachers and coaches, and it's a great way for sports teams to fundraise together. (my parents donate to the Greater Boston Food Bank in our names - another great organization that desperately needs help)  

And as the song goes - five golden rings. or one fabulous 14k gold (filled) ring of five spirals made by Elisha Marie on Brika, a great site that 'celebrates modern craft'. At this price, you could easily pick up five of them.  (amen!)
