Stocking Stuffers

Last year my husband and I went way overboard in the Santa department. We had a blast watching the kids unwrap all of their gifts, but quickly realized this isnโ€™t a tradition we wanted to start. We have decided to do one big gift every year and then put all the fun little things in the stocking. As a mom of two crazy toddlers, I am always looking for non-candy gifts. I have compiled my favorite stocking stuffers for kids!

  • Underwear This one seems pretty silly but it's a tradition! When I was younger we always got underwear in our stockings and now my kids do! Check out our favorites by Gymboree here
  • Socks Nothing goes better with underwear then socks! Our favorites are 50% off! Check them out here.  
  • Bath Toys You can never have too many bath toys! My kids love color changing tablets. They come in fun colors! Check them out here. This year I am getting Charlotte little sticky Jelly Fish! Find those here
  • Cars Both our kids love cars. They are easy on the go toys. Check out some here.  
  • Water Bottle We are always loosing water bottles and needing more! We love Camelbak and Klean Kanteen, those can be found here.  
  • Shoes Our kids still have tiny cute feet, so shoes easily fit in a stocking.  Charlotte loves Robeez and Austin loves Nikes
  • Art Supplies We love to craft! There is nothing I love to gift my kids more then art supplies.  Amazon has good deals on art stocking stuffers. Check out Scissor Skills by Melissa and Doug here
  • Play dough Play dough finds itโ€™s way into our stockings every year! Itโ€™s cheap and entertaining. Find some here
  • Pouches We hate to put sweets in our stockings but fruit & veggie packets are just the right amount of sweet. Austin loves the Oatmeal Breakfast ones which can be found here
  • Dish ware Re- Play has the best dish ware! I love their fun colors and the fact that they are dishwasher safe. They can be found here.
  • Snow hat We always head to the snow for Christmas so a snow hat is perfect to keep the kids cozy.  Gymboree has some sweet ones that can be found  here
  • Books A couple years ago my son received the sweetest personalized book from his grandparents.  It quickly became one of his favorites.  I See Me makes reading special for loved ones. You can find them here
  • Toothbrush Another favorite stocking stuffer! We like to find fun cartoon characters. This year we went with Paw Patrol, which can be found here
  • Learning Toys I adore these sweet little shape turtles from Smart Splash. They can be found here
  • Hair Bows There are so many adorable hair bows on Gymboree. We have this one on our list this year.

    Really good ideas, we have stockings but I only put homemade sugar free treats in them every Friday. Then we have our house elf that brings the kids little presents every day. Great list though <3 Happy holidays

    What great ideas. I always wonder what the heck I am supposed to put in the stockings. Then I always end up getting to much (usually because some of the things are larger).

    I always have a few little cars in my purse. They’re just small enough to go everywhere with me and keep my littlest busy for hours. This is a great list!

    This is a great list! I am always looking for stocking stuffer ideas. This year I know my kids will all be getting tooth brushes and tooth paste lol. And my oldest will probably get deodorant too but honestly our kids have so much carp that I want them to have things they actually need and will use. We are so blessed with a large family that all live right around us so they get pretty spoiled with everyone else that I get to give the not so fun gifts ๐Ÿ˜‰
