Okay friends, It is that time of year when Santa’s and his elves are hard at work. Does Santa need a little help this year with ideas for suffing those stockings that will be hung by the chimney with care? If so, he is in luck! We have the guide to the BEST stocking stuffers.

To make this easy for you, we are going to break it down by age group.
Stocking Stuffers For Babies
Babies most likely won’t know the difference if you stuff a stocking for them or not, but their siblings will. So why not stuff it with the things you would end up needing to buy anyways, and a few fun extras.
- Snacks- We like the Gerber Graduates Snack Items like puffs, yogurt melts, etc
- Board Books- We have a lot of favorites but Dear Zoo is one of our most loved books
- Sippy Cups– Boy have they come a long way since we were little!
- Pacifier- If your baby uses a pacifier, maybe buy a few new ones, a clip, or a carrying case
- Smaller Baby Toys– our twins are really into all kinds of rattles and shakers right now
Stocking Stuffers for Toddlers & Preschoolers
This age is so fun, but finding items that fit in the stocking that they will love, and that won’t drive you bonkers is hard. These are our favorites.
- Art Supplies- Fingerpaints, Crayons, Art Kits. We love them all. We especially love Color Wonder supplies and the Alex Art Kits
- Books- while board books are still an option, you can also go for more
- Bath toys- we kind of despise the squirter toys but these bath pipes are a ton of fun
- Snacks- raisins and craisins are always popular with the Goof
- Puzzles- If you need to find some that will fit in a stocking, the Dollar Tree usually sells some
Stocking Stuffers For Kids (Age 5-9)
- Small Toys- Have a child that loves Shopkins or Hot Wheels, buy a few small items that can go in their stocking
- Movies- Choose their favorite Disney movie. I think The Goof may find Inside Out in his stocking this year
- Jump Rope- Help your child get active with a jump rope or other “active toy”
- Card Games (Not pictured) such as Old Maid, Go Fish, and more
- Books- At this age, the Step Into Reading books, and chapter books are a great option for stocking stuffers
Stocking Stuffers for Tweens and Teens
- Movies- There are a lot of new movies out, like Jurassic World – that are perfect for teens and tweens.
- Games – Telestrations or 100 Wacky Things are great games that can be played with family or friends and aren’t too adult, but aren’t “too little kiddish”
- Gift Cards – get an itunes, app store, or similar gift card.
- Wireless accessories such as blue tooth headphones, cell phone cases, and more are another great idea
- Books- the paper or the ebook kind. Get new books or a gift card for kindle to help keep them reading.
Now all that is left to do is bake some cookies and wait for Santa to stuff those stockings! Be sure to check back next week as we join the Blogorail for a loop of Gift Guides. I am excited to share our guide to Experience Gifts with you!
