Ah, the Christmas stocking—Papa Noel’s overstuffed, baja-style, velveteen burrito bursting with holiday goodies. When you were a kid, your mom and dad spent hours pouring over a spatial calculus problem attempting to max-out this parcel of foot-shaped real estate.

And take off those novelty aviator sunglasses while you’re at it too. This is Christmas and we mean business in the stocking department. Here are the 7 items that create the perfectly stuffed stocking:
