We have been stuffing stockings with London Drugs the last 3 years, it’s our absolute favorite holiday donation drive. Stocking Stuffers for Seniors brings the girls and I an ridiculous amount of joy to think we can make a few local seniors feel extra loved over the Holidays.
There are so many of our elderly that feel alone over the Holidays, especially now during a pandemic. I think we can all agree, 2020 has provided us far too many days of feeling lonely – this is the reality of so many living in care homes right now given how fragile their immune systems are.
Stocking Stuffers for Seniors is held at your local London Drugs between now and December 16th. Simply visit your local London Drugs store, choose a gift tag from their tree and buy the small gifts on the seniors wish list. Bring the new unwrapped items to Customer Service along with it’s tag and they will get it safely to them before Christmas.
In previous years our local London Drugs had specific asks for each one of their seniors. We loved being able to choose our tag specifically based on their likes and requests. For example last year one asked for an Italian Cookbook and sweets and another asked for a dog calendar and a K9 magazine. That resonated with us and we loved picking gifts for this senior that we felt like we knew a little. We spoiled them with extras like Italian sweets and an Italian card game, a dog mug and puppy socks.
Stocking Stuffers for Seniors
This years tree was a little different. Our tags were blank and were left to us to choose what we wanted to gift our seniors. They suggested toiletries, blankets and warm clothing which was a great starter for us.
We went ahead and grabbed 2 tags and made one stocking for a female and one specific for a male. Without any specific direction we went pretty generic, but added a few little fun touches that we think anyone would appreciate over the Holidays.
In both stockings we included socks, slippers, gloves, a few bags of sweet treats, a 2021 calendar, puzzle, crossword book, toothbrush, cookies, and tea – OH! and a candy cane.
Sofia and Stella both drew a few pictures to include with each gift bag. I’m sure this will add a little Christmas Joy when it’s received. It’s those little touches I assume they will appreciate the most.
If you can help this year please do consider Stocking Stuffers for Seniors with London Drugs. The simple gesture goes a long way.
