Brightening your holiday season with a Buffy Christmas post every day ending on Christmas day.
Today’s first installment is:
JOYCE FILLING SEASON 3 SCOOBY GANG STOCKINGS!
Even though Willow celebrates Hanukkah with her family, she still gets in on the Christmas activities with her best pals. Joyce stuffs Willow’s stocking with a box of raisins (Willow’s apparent #1 choice of snack at The Bronze), highlighters so she can color code her notes, an Espresso Pump gift card (bring on the Mochas!), and strawberry candies.
Xander gets a bag of Doritos, a Star Trek figure, cologne (with a few herbs mixed in to ward off evil spirits with Willow’s help), and fruit roll-ups. I also have a quick question for you guys – weren’t Xander and Anya eating Cajun Fiesta Doritos in an episode? I searched for Cajun Fiesta Doritos and I don’t even know if they ever existed. If you have any info on this please hit the comments, I lose sleep over it.
Buffy receives chocolate chip cookies, lip gloss, Bubble Yum bubble gum, and a nice cross necklace.
Giles gets tea, glasses cleaner spray, cherry lollipops, and a bookmark. Joyce thought about giving him a record or something nicer but decided against it at the last minute, not wanting to make things awkward by calling to mind BAND CANDY MEMORIES.
Faith gets Red Vine licorice (which she rations and saves until Graduation Day Pt. 1), a Doublemeat Palace gift card because Faith is always hungry, the Harlot lipstick that Joyce had seen her eyeing, and a cross ring.
Oz gets a pack of guitar picks, animal crackers, hair gel, and a Pez re-fill pack.
Cordelia receives a copy of the latest Cosmopolitan magazine, eye shadow, perfume and Werther’s caramels.
Joyce is completely at a loss of what to get Angel, so she gets him a nice watch, so that he never brings Buffy home too late, and a movie gift card, so he can do something fun with Buffy. She also figured that Angel gets bored in his mansion all day so she gets him a Gameboy, along with a Legend of Zelda game (at Oz’s suggestion) for him to ponder over.
Last but not least, Joyce could never forget her favorite vampire. Spike gets hot chocolate and mini marshmallows, black nail polish, and a ton of coal on top to disguise the gifts from Buffy.
