I am a Rayovac sponsored Blogger. This is my opinion on the topic and samples received.
I have fond memories of Christmas’ past, waking up before EVERYONE ELSE on Christmas morning and seeing the gifts below the still lit tree. I wouldn’t dare even peek at any of the gifts, but the stocking was always fair game in my opinion. Years of experience told me to expect a VHS tape (and later DVD) crammed in there, along with Archie comic books, paper back novels and an assortment of candy. I could read before the rest of my family member woke up and groggily met me by the tree.
My husband has other memories, with stockings filled with XXXL women’s underwear (they were pranksters), toothbrushes and floss, candy and batteries. Yes, Santa remembered to deliver batteries to his house while at my house we sometimes would be delving into the junk drawer for loose batteries for new toys.
At my house, Santa has updated the stocking selection and merged the tradition. The kids get some candy (York peppermint being their favorite), iTunes gift card, Skylander/Disney Infinity/amiibo characters, books, comic books, coloring books, Mad Lib book, underwear they can actually use and batteries. Their stockings over-floweth.
Whether Santa delivers the batteries or you just have them stocked and ready, the batteries will come in handy this holiday season. Just think, look at your child’s wish list – what’s on it and what requires batteries? R/C vehicles, console remotes, cordless headphones – they all need LOTS of batteries – especially those first few days.
To help save some money on the As, AAs, Cs and those random A23s, Rayovac has two coupons located on the Printable Coupons tab on their Facebook page.
So tell me – did you ever have a battery emergency on Christmas Morning? And what are your stocking must-haves?
