Best Stocking Stuffers for the Entire Family
Okay procrastinators! This is for you—you who always forget to shove something into those stockings and run around on Christmas Eve, trying to find stray candy canes to do the trick. Okay, fine, it's for me, too, but you're welcome to be inspired by it, too!
I give you, my Best Stocking Stuffers for the Whole Family:
Animal Shakers. They make noise, they’re baby-hand friendly, and they’re good for gumming. Wooden animal shakers will make a nice Christmas stocking stuffer for your littlest human's first Christmas.
Jumbo Paint Brushes: These are large-handled paint brushes that your pint-sized Picasso can actually work with.
Peek-a-blocks: Peek-a-blocks are little blocks that are filled with fun. Some of them move, others make sounds. They are made from titanium, so they don't have any chance of breaking. Kidding, but they are really, really hard to break. Believe me—my kids tried their best.
Mini Board Books: One of our all-time faves is the Belly Button Book by Sandra Boynton, but you can find many great titles in stocking-stuffing size. Snag a few to share with your one-day reader.
Fingernail Friends: Zoo animal decals for your nails. So chic.
Star Wars Sound Blaster Key Chain: I got these for my kids last year, and they LOVED them. With the press a button, Yoda’s voice is in your living room, which is totally awesome when you’re eight.
Old Maid Playing Cards: Kick it old school with a fun deck of these classic game cards. Oh, and if you're interested, they have Go Fish!, too.
Toothpaste Oscar: Have a reluctant brusher? I know I’m not the only one. Well, this kind of awesome helps. This cap goes on your kids’ toothpaste and looks gross when the toothpaste squeezes out, which in my world is code for cool.
Mom and Dad
Two Girls Toffery: Sweet goodness for your mouth! Mom and Dad will probably fight over who gets to finish the last piece.
Botanical Me: Every frazzled mom will appreciate Botanical Me's Instant Energy and Instant Calm essential oil therapy. A quick boost or a mini timeout is literally at your fingertips!
Zoola Fox Ring Holder: What does the fox say? Honestly, no one cares as along as your rings don’t get washed down the drain when you do the dishes. Also, foxes are really creepy, but porcupines are super adorbs.
Luchador bottle openers: I literally bought this for every man in my life. Because, hello? Nacho Libre!
Pop Chart La t-shirt: Sure, you’ll have to roll it up to shove it in his stocking, but if he can name 10 NES games, he knows who Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth are, and he enjoys a good craft beer, he will probably appreciate your effort.
What are some great stocking stuffers you have found this season? Share in the comments for those of us who are still on the hunt for some gems in the sea of options.
