Sometimes, the littlest gifts can be the hardest to find. So I thought I’d put together a list for some ideas for the hanging socks on your mantle (so weird honestly). I personally love stocking opening, we always open them last, like a “grade finale” of Christmas Morning! Now that we have a toddler in the house, it’s even more fun to continue the tradition. Sure, you can fill stocking with candy canes and pencils and cheap toys, but why not mix in a few useful items too! Useful items are always a plus and help reduce more junk in the landfill come Valentine’s Day.
STOCKING STUFFERS FOR LITTLE ONES
Construction Site Utensil Set – This “toy” doubles as utensils and makes mealtimes more fun! Perfect for the little ones in the “truck!” phase.
Frozen Queen Elsa Utensil Set– Anything to get them to eat, right?
Melissa & Doug Water Wow Coloring Books – Anything to keep them away from screens or messes for a minute, right?
Play-Doh Christmas Tree and Snowman Ornaments – Comes in a 6 pack so you can gift a few to daycare friends as well!
Sticker Books – Once again I love the Melissa & Doug ones, but any brand will do! Kids love stickers
Slippers – These toddler sized slippers come in a bunch of different styles for boys and girls. We have them for Emmett and they’re great quality and super cozy and warm!
Electric Toothbrush – a fun new toothbrush like this one from Nuby is useful and a great way to combat all those cookies & milk.
STOCKING STUFFERS FOR HER
Skincare Minis! You can never go wrong with something like a mini skincare set like this one (my favorite!) from Olehendriksen. (NOT SPONSORED, JUST LOVE IT)
Sheet Masks -Are self care stockings a thing? They should be.
TARGET GIFT CARDS – Honestly I could go on and on with little gift ideas, but all she wants is a Target gift card. I know you don’t think it’s thoughtful enough, but truly, it is.
STARBUCKS GIFT CARDS – She wants these too. The end.
STOCKING STUFFERS FOR HIM:
New Razors – not super fun, but super practical!
Coffee Pods – Does the man in your life have a Nespresso or Keurig machine? Is he getting one for christmas? Put some pods in his stocking!
Skincare! – Chances are he won’t but it for himself. Check out this set by Jack Black
SCRATCH OFF LOTTERY TICKETS – Tried and true. Never met a soul who doesn’t love a good scratcher.
I hope some of these ideas are helpful for you and that your stocking is full of everything but coal! Merry Christmas everyone.
