Stocking Stuffers for Kids of All Ages

Stocking Stuffers for Kids of All Ages

If you’re like me, you find the job of picking out Christmas stocking stuffers for your kids to be equal parts festive and overwhelming, and it’s sometimes a daunting task to choose an array of these little gifts that strike a balance between fun and “useful.”

Stocking stuffers are a highlight of every Christmas morning, and when I was growing up, my parents always gave us wonderful things. How many of you got an orange in the bottom of the stocking? That’s such a fun tradition.  In addition to buying a nice mix of fun and useful gifts, there’s also the matter of finding stuff small enough to stuff in a stocking. I’ve found that it helps to write out a list of potential choices, and this helps me breeze through the stocking stuffer buying process with as little stress as possible. If you’re seeking stocking stuffer ideas for your child – of any age – let this list light a spark of inspiration!
