Best Stocking Stuffers for Kids

These are the best stocking stuffers for kids of all ages that are cheap and unique. Boy and Girl stocking stuffer ideas that are just a few bucks are the best.

Stocking stuffers for kidsI don’t know about your kids, but running downstairs to find the little trinkets in their stockings is sometimes as much fun as the ones under the tree! So now that you’re overwhelmed with the holiday crowds at the mall, and need some of the best stocking stuffers for kids you can order online or find at your local Dollar Store! I am always looking for cheap stuff so I can fill it full! (originally published 12/14)

  • First before we start talking about stocking stuffers I want you to make The Night Before Christmas Box for your kids this year!! Have you done this yet???

If you’ve never done it it is a great tradition that you’ll wan to keep going throughout their childhood…okay….

I will break down the best stocking stuffers for kids according to age

I have 3 girls and when they were younger I bought very different gifts for girls because a toddler is much different than a teen, you know what I mean. Now that they are all 10-17 I buy 3 of everything for the most part (helps that they’re all girls) since they love all the same things now and I don’t have to worry about potential choking hazards.

Of course every child is different so I have a long list of stocking stuffer ideas for kids here, and many link to where you can order it online so you don’t even have to leave your house….my kind of Christmas shopping…NO crowds!

Stocking stuffers for toddlers

Before I order everything online I always hit the Dollar Store and stock up on everything I can use as stocking stuffers there.

I put that bag at the top of my closet to bring down the night before Christmas, and then I order everything else online and put the box full of these goodies in my closet too.

Then I’m done, I usually do this at the beginning of December but I have done it literally the week before Christmas and with 2 day shipping everything worked out great too!

If you have a kid who loves slime we have a bunch of the best way to make slime recipes on our site, you can go all out under the tree if they’re obsessed.

For slime lovers just wrap up under the tree:

  1. A huge jug of glue
