It may not be exciting enough for a “main” Christmas gift, but The Knot Genie makes a great stocking stuffer. These brushes come in shiny and matte colors so you can find one that your little one will love. These brushes are a great gift because they are the only ones I've found that are truly ouch-free. Little girls with lots of hair might also like The Magic Hairband, bling and all.

If your kids are like mine, they love drawing. Give them some art supplies that are little different than they are used to in their stocking.

They also make triangle-shaped crayons that are perfect for little hands that are just learning to color and that come in a carrying case that is perfect for taking along anywhere your holiday travels take you.
