I don’t know a single kid (or adult) who doesn’t love toys and games.
I think I received a set of UNO cards every single year. I loved it because I had usually lost a few throughout the year and I could start fresh.
I also enjoyed getting craft supplies like colored pencils and markers and small toys like a slinky or Rubik’s cube. We never got many, but I sure did enjoy the one’s that I did receive. I think you are going to love these ideas!

I think one of the most common ideas for stocking stuffers is travel sized toiletries.
These are great and super practical, but take it a step beyond travel shampoo. Pick up a few really cute beauty products like bath bombs or nail polish. You could even try your hand at making a DIY version of bath salts or fill ornaments with your favorite scents.
The sky is the limit when you think small for stockings. I would love to get bath bombs in my stocking… they are so luxurious, but I never justify spending the money on them for myself.

These last minute stocking stuffer ideas are perfect!
The Christmas stocking is perfect to stock your family up for winter essentials like ski caps and toboggans, cute ear muffs and soft and cozy gloves or mittens.
I also restock my girl’s supply of pony tail holders and hair ties and bows, too. This can also be a really fun place to hide a beautiful necklace or bracelet. Dad’s I’m talking to you… slip a beautiful set of earrings in mama’s stocking and you will be golden for quite a while.
You can also replace those outgrown and worn out sunglasses, too! Keep your teens on trend with the latest style of stocking cap and bracelets in their stockings this year.
