The origins of Christmas Stockings can be traced back to a night centuries ago when Saint Nicholas saw a woman pimping out her fat husband in order to make enough money for rent. To remove this ungodly sight from his town, Old Saint Nic threw a bag of gold through their window, which landed in the man’s fishnet stocking that was hanging above the fireplace to dry. Ever since, people have been hanging their stockings on Christmas Eve in the hopes of scoring some swag, and not having to wear fishnets to pay rent.
To help you out with your stocking stuffer endeavours, here are some golden stocking stuffer ideas for guys.
