Stocking Stuffers Your Kids Will Love!
Yesterday I heard that stores are already running out of the best toys for Christmas. While I love finding meaningful gifts for YOUR parents & meaningful non-toy ideas, I also love to find creative gifts that the kids can laugh about, have fun with, and be surprised by… My stocking stuffer list isn’t any different.
What is different is while kids rush to make a Christmas list every year, you can really find unexpected things for the stocking. The stocking leaves lots of room for creativity. 🙂
Really unique stocking stuffers are one of the most fun holiday traditions we share as a family for the holiday. Today I’m sharing ideas & affiliate links to a few favorite stocking stuffers. 🙂
Stocking Stuffers for Kids
Yes, stocking stuffer ideas for our kids are always fun, but sometimes hard to come up with ‘out of the box’ ideas. Especially year after year! If you are looking to be a little more creative than the basics (candy, toothbrushes, etc…) then I hope these ideas spark some creativity for you too!
Ps- Santa knows that we (Mickey & I) add a few things to the stockings every year, so if their little eyes happen to see these things in our closet (the gift hiding place) – it isn’t quite as big of a deal.
Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Kids
- Shaving Cream – your kids can use it to draw on the table or spray some in a baking dish and let them draw.
- Letters to each other. Have your kids write why they love each other and let them fill each other’s stockings with these notes before they go to bed on Christmas eve.
- All-natural peppermint Chapstick
- Hair Brushes (I love our WetBrush)
- Letter from Mom with the date that you wrote it. After Christmas, put the note into a box and save it with your Christmas things. Each year, pull the box out and read old letters with your kids.
- An Orange and a quarter (in the toe of the stocking – for good luck!)
- Awesome Chalk-Marker liquid pens!
- LEGO mini set (less than $5)
- Pocket pal mini-Notebooks
- Gloves (12 pairs for $15 – love this for as often as we lose gloves!)
- Reindeer Bell (right off of Santa’s sleigh) with a note from Santa.
- Child/Parent date-night certificates. Have them in envelopes and each month, the child pulls out that corresponding envelope and gets to see what date was planned for them.
- Magazines for kids – we like National Geographic for Kids
- A great book
- Nail polish – love this set!
- Bath Crayons (& even CLn body wash – it’s our favorite!)
- New water bottle (this one is awesome & holds up over time.)

- Shark Socks
- Post-it notes
- Brain Quest Cards
