Looking for stocking stuffers kids will love and actually use? You’ve come to the right place.
I’ll be honest…
Stocking stuffers are usually a big fail for me at Christmas.
I know that I need to get them but I usually just put it off until the very last minute and then I buy anything I can find in the bargain bin at Walmart and shove it into the stocking, hoping for the best.
Mostly it ends up being things my kids look at once and then relegate to the depths of the toy box, never to be seen again. Or even worse, I load up their stockings with candy that I really don’t want them to eat and end up feeling bad about telling them they can’t have it. Not the best mommin’, I know.
That’s why this year I decided to finally shop for stocking stuffers early to try to find ones that my kids will love and actually use.
Even better, every one of them is under $10.
And, little tip… Since these gifts were all found on Amazon, if you don’t already have it, you can save money on shipping when you sign up to get free 2-day shipping with your 30-day free trial of Amazon Prime (you can always cancel it before you get charged for it after the holidays are over).
I hope this list makes your holiday shopping a little easier and merrier too!
#1 – Wikki Stix
These fun, bendable sticks are great for keeping kiddos busy.
#2 – Original Slinky
Kiddos love this toy and since they can get bent easily, we usually have to replace them at least once a year. Luckily they are super cheap at just over $3 each.
This is a cute Christmas game kids will love…
#4 – Rubic’s Cube
A classic game that’s back again…
Since my oldest has ADHD, any sensory toy is a great option for her but I know this one will be perfect for my 4 year old too!
#6 – Flying Gliders
My mom got these for my kids a while back and they absolutely loved them. And as a bonus, the six pack of them is less than $3.
#7 – Paw Patrol Wallet
My youngest is obsessed with Paw Patrol so this wallet is a must have.
#8 – Christmas Mad Libs
I loved Mad Libs as a kid and now my 9 year old does too. These Christmas Mad Libs will be a big hit in her stocking Christmas morning.
These are super cute and a must-have for each child.
#10 – Hatch ‘Ems Tortoise
Love, love, love this one!
#11 – Silly Putty
Silly Putty is a children’s tradition so why not add it to this year’s Christmas stocking?
#12 – Super Sonic Gyro Disc
Fun spinning disc that will be great to take in the car to keep the kiddos busy.
Shrinky Dinks are a great activity to do over Christmas break so they make a great stocking stuffer.
#14 – Santa Word Search
My 9 year old loves word searches so this Christmas themed one was a no-brainer.
#15 – Fidget Toy
This fidget toy has been the best for my daughter’s ADHD issues and I love that you can get them for less than $1 each.
I’m always looking for learning toys and I really like the Be Amazing brand. They’re not expensive and they provide a great educational experience in a format kids can handle.
#17 – Be Amazing Toys Energy Stick
Another Be Amazing winner…
#18 – Legos Star Wars
My oldest is both a Legos and a Star Wars fan so this one is perfect.
#19 – Legos Stunt Truck
This one just looked fun!
And, this one was more girly and less than $4!
Cute, cute, cute!
#22 – Light Saber Water Bottle
For your little Star Wars fan!
#23 – Star Wars Toothbrushes
I’m betting these Star Wars toothbrushes will encourage my 9 year old to brush longer…
#24 – Paw Patrol Watch
Adorable digital watch and it’s Paw Patrol so what’s not to love?
So, that’s my list of the 24 stocking stuffers your kids will love and actually use. I hope it makes your shopping a little merrier.
