Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Kids They’ll Love to Find on Christmas Morning
I love finding unique stocking stuffers, and always try my best to get an early jump on this, just like I do when I’m looking for the best and most unique toys for Christmas. Plus, I’m a bargain hunter when it comes to getting stocking stuffers and toys at a great price, so starting early is key.
I love the challenge to find creative and unique stocking stuffers every Christmas (plus, it’s one of the most fun holiday traditions when you snag . Today I’m sharing fun kids stocking stuffers.
50 Kid Stocking Stuffers
Stocking stuffers are always fun, but sometimes, year after year, it’s hard to come up with new, unique ideas. If you’re looking for some ideas that are more creative than the basics (such as candy, a toothbrush, matchbox car, etc.), then I hope these sparkling ideas are just what you’re looking for!

- Bath crayons are a fun bath time activity and wash off really easily when they’re done.
