Stocking stuffers for kids are tricky. It’s so easy (and a little tempting) to just grab small things off the shelves and be done with it, especially if you’re like me. It never fails. I always realize, that I don’t have enough to fill a stocking at the last minute. Cue a wild-eyed frenzy and very little thought as I dump anything my girls might be remotely interested in into a shopping cart. The problem is that I generally end up with a small pile of crap that’s exciting for roughly seven seconds before I might as well scoop it all into the garbage. That, my friends, is what we call a fail.
I’ve made it my mission to make sure you don’t end up in the same boat. I’ve scoured the internet for fun, unexpected stocking stuffer ideas that your kids will think are the coolest. All you need to do is click your mouse a couple of times and kick back, waiting for them to turn up on your doorstep.
