My favorite part of Christmas morning has always been opening stockings. As a kid, I loved to discover what little treasures were hidden and nestled in there and now as a mom, I love filling and watching my kids empty theirs.

This year we are focusing on simple and intentional gifts, which also includes small items for the stockings. Stockings are perfect for those little things that are both practical and necessary, yet oh so fun!

    Great tips, there was a few things I didn’t think of. Making stockings for ages 3,13,23..Thanks..Happy Holidays.

  2. Nice list! Here are my practical stocking stuffer ideas.

    About the squeezable fruit pouches: A more long-lasting gift is a Squooshi reusable pouch, which works just like the disposable ones but can be washed and refilled. They are super cute and surprisingly easy to clean. At only $3-4 each they’re still an affordable stocking stuffer and better for the environment than disposable.

    I love practical stocking stuffers. My favorite is a pack of Lipsmakers my mom puts in my stocking every year! Stamps are also great, too.

    1. I used to love Lipsmakers when I was younger, all the fun flavors. I think that was when I first discovered I was addicted to lip balm 🙂

  4. My kids are older, so I get them stuff for their cars. Flashlights, rain ponchos, cell phone chargers, coin organizers, trash bags. Also, mine aren’t that big on candy, so after seeing it get thrown away year after year, I get them things they like – beef jerky, cheetos, shortbread cookies, etc. #SITSSharefest

    1. Oh those are great ideas too! I love the idea of things to keep in their cars, I will have to remember that when my kids are older because that is so practical and needed. Thanks for sharing Adrian, Merry Christmas!

  5. Great suggestions! I am always at a loss for stocking stuffers and I have 7 to fill – eek!

    Great list Victoria!!! A few things I had never thought of!

  8. Great List! A few more ideas are just general classic but small toys, such as a Magic 8 Ball, Jacob’s Ladder, Pin Art Board, etc. Thanks!

    1. Love classic toys! I’ll have to include some of these as my kids get older. Hope you had a great Christmas Emma 🙂

  10. I like practical gifts as well as things I know they will love. I am up to 15 stockings to fill this year! Being creative is a must! It seems like ice scrapers are always a hit since my kids seem to lose theirs! Gift cards, Toothbrushes, bath toys for little ones, hot wheels cars, fisher price people/animals, bouncy balls, marbles, axe spray/body spray, stuffed animals, movies, toe/finger nail clippers(another hit since these seem to be misplaced so much), scarves, gloves, toboggans, yearly Christmas ornaments, special notes and so much more that I cannot think of right now.
