10 Fun and Unique Stocking Stuffer Ideas

10 Fun and Unique Stocking Stuffer Ideas

Since we use the Three Kings Method of Christmas gift giving, we like to stuff our stockings with a lot of little and interesting things. Because our gifts focus on the meaning of Christmas, we like to have fun with our stockings and you never know what you will find stuffed in those big red socks. Check out these fun and unique stocking stuffer ideas I gathered from around the web this week.

10 Fun and Unique Stocking Stuffer Ideas #Christmas

Treesmart Pencils made with recycled newspaper. My kids LOVED these and I could not stop looking at them. Very cool. I especially like how you can still see the printing on the graphite pencils.

Hexbug Nanos. We are Hexbug lovers in my family. We are always surprised when we buy these for birthday presents for friends and they have never heard of them. They are always a big hit and even mom and dad will enjoy playing with them.

Character Bandaids. My kids like Bandaids a little too much. Add cartoons to them and they may go berserk. Well, I might buy the Peanuts ones for myself.

Glow-in-the-dark stars for the bedroom ceiling. A ton of fun!

Unicorn crayons. These are so cute and just the perfect size for little hands.

Dinosaur crayons. Like the unicorn crayons, except they are dinosaurs. I want some of these myself.

DIY I Love You Bean. Let your little green thumb grow a plant that has “I Love You” written on it.

Novelty socks. My daughter loves fun socks – well who doesn’t.

Apron. Kids love aprons. They can use them for painting, crafting, and cooking (of course).

Harmonica. This may drive mom and dad crazy, but the kids will love it! Sometimes you can even find these at your local dollar stores.

I hope you found at least one new idea on this list! ¬†What fun item will you be putting in your kiddos’ stockings?

Merry Christmas!
