We still stuff stockings in our house. Just for the kids though. Since they usually get a few things they wanted off their Christmas list we reserve their stockings for food treats and smaller needs. For instance, this year, all the kids will have a small pack of socks in their stocking and some christmas candy. Another great idea is HICKIES no-tie lacing system.
HICKIES are for adults and children. Easy to apply to lace up shoes to turn your lace up shoes into sli-ons.
I know my two older boys rarely untie their tennis shoes. This is the perfect idea for them. My 7 yr old insists on velcro shoes. He’s still working on tying shoes and gets so frustrated with it. And for my toddler…well have you ever tried to tie a toddler shoe while the toddler is wearing them. It’s like trying to nail jello to a tree.
I got two packs of HICKIES to review: black and bright orange. My 12 yr old son loves his bright colors so he wanted to try the orange in his shoes. He had them in and ready to go in a about a minute or 2.
My son said it did make his shoe feel pretty tight. They seemed secure and didn’t come loose with activity.
They have different kind: Amazing stocking stuffer prices at $11.99 (HICKIES Kids), $14.99 (HICKIES Adult) and $17.99 (HICKIES Metallics)
