I’ll be really honest, when I was a kid for some reason my stocking was my favorite part of the Christmas morning experience. It was something about pulling so many presents out of a single stocking. It was really magical to me!
As a mom though, stockings became a struggle for me and I hated buying things that seemed like junk just so I could throw it in their stockings at the last minute.
Not cool. So I got more intentional last Christmas in an effort to give my kids the same magical experience I had growing up.
My gift expedition was actually a lot of fun and I want to share with you many of the big hits and many more stocking stuffer ideas for kids. These stocking stuffer ideas will NOT be junk and may end up being your kids’ favorite toys this Christmas.
And the best part is… they are all under $10 each! I mean, stocking stuffers are supposed to be cheap.
Here we go!
