Sometimes stocking stuffers are the hardest things to think of! Of course new socks and underwear are non-negotiables, but here are a few other items we seem to hit the jackpot with that are little enough to throw in a stocking.
Digital Timer Bookmark
: I LOVE this idea! This bookmark keeps track of your child’s reading time…brilliant! No more guessing or asking, “How much longer?” They also have a version with a reading light here.
Can’t wait to start using ours!($8.99)
: Not sure if crazy socks for boys are all the rage where you are, but they certainly are here. Stance Socks
get really funky and Red Lion
socks are a little more tame but just as fun. A great option for a little boy wardrobe excitement.
This would make an awesome stocking stuffer. Perfect for dark tag, camping, or even reading at night. You will be surprised at how excited they are about a head lamp. ($13)
: These take you back, right? They are just as entertaining and challenging as they have always been…a great little item for the stocking! ($11)
What boy does not love to have a few new LEGO guys? These are great for throwing into the bottom of a stocking!
Plastic Ninjas $8 for 42
These are always a hit. They are very inexpensive and a fun little pop at the bottom of the stocking
Matchbox Cars $19 for 20 cars
While older boys may not play with cars for long, it always surprises me how much they like getting a few in their stocking, plus it is a fun thing for older and younger boys to play together.
: What boy doesn’t love a wallet. An Awesome stocking stuffer, especially if it include a few crisp dollar bills! ($11.99)
It seems like no one is too young to enjoy a few crisp dollar bills, $2 bills or silver dollars make things even more exciting. It is fun to give each child a few dollars to spend over the break or a little money roll to begin a savings account.
How cool to find movie tickets/trampoline park passes or itunes gift cards at the bottom of your stocking? Such a fun surprise.
Roll up a t-shirt of your son’s favorite team…a little more fun than underwear ;).
