Seriously Huge List of Stocking Stuffer Ideas

Watching my three kids run out into the living room and tear through their stocking stuffers with ridiculous excitement is, hands down, my favorite part about Christmas morning.

My husband and I make it a point NOT to buy our kids any gifts throughout the year other than on their birthday and Christmas so watching their joy and enthusiasm as they go through their stockings and other Christmas gifts is one of life’s great treasures.

I definitely get my love of Christmas stockings from my Mom. She was the most amazing and over-the-top stocking stuffer this world has ever seen. The QUEEN BEE of stocking stuffing, you could say.  And this was way before Pinterest and the Target Dollar Bin came onto the scene.

Now a mom of 3 myself, I come nowhere close to her level of stocking stuffing perfection but I still really enjoy shopping for them and consider it a fun challenge to seek out and buy new, unique and budget friendly stocking stuffers each year.

As a way of sharing my love for the Christmas stocking, I have compiled a master list of stocking stuffer ideas. These are things that I have done in the past or plan on doing this year. The list is broken down into sections according to age and, in the later years, gender.

Here is your seriously huge list of Christmas stocking stuffer toys, trinkets and other ideas for both boys and girls ages birth to 10. Finding the right gifts for your kids can be a challenge so this list is here to help! Christmas presents for kids, Christmas gifts for young girls and boys.

My kids are currently 4, 6 and 8 but I feel most of the things on the 5 to 10 list could possibly be appropriate way beyond age 10.

Alright! Let’s get started!

Babies: 0 to 12 months

Let’s be honest, wee ones at this age have no idea what is happening on Christmas morning. I mean, they are certainly aware of the activity but will absolutely not remember what was in their stocking. Thus, I think the smartest and most economical thing to do is stuff their stocking with things that you and they need. Here is a list of 35 ideas for this age:

  1. Baby wipes
  2. Rolled up cotton pajamas
  3. Socks
  4. Onesies
  5. Boogie Wipes
  6. Thermometer
  7. Saline Spray for Little Noses
  8. Pacifiers
  9. Soft lovie, blanket or stuffed animal
  10. Swaddles or Muslin Blankets/wraps
  11. Baby hat
  12. Baby sunglasses (oh my gosh, so cute)
  13. Baby Food
  14. Baby Snacks like Mum Mum Crackers, Puffs or Yogurt Melts
  15. Bottles
  16. Bottle brush
  17. Sippy Cups
  18. Plastic, reusable spoons/forks
  19. Teething toys
  20. Bibs
  21. Any soft book or crinkle book
  22. Any age appropriate toy (rattles, balls, taggies. etc.)
  23. Baby Bubble Bath/Body Wash
  24. Baby lotion
  25. Diaper Rash Cream
  26. Children’s Tylenol or Ibuprofen (Totally not kidding… this is cold and flu season, people!)
  27. Vic’s Vapor Rub for Infants (This stuff smells amazing and is perfect at night for coughs and colds)
  28. Stick or tube of infant Sunscreen
  29. CD of baby or toddler tunes for the car
  30. Gift card to Target (lol… definitely more of a gift for you) wrapped in some shiny, crinkly paper that they will love to gum.
  31. Amber teething necklace
  32. Inch Bug or other labels for bottles and other on-the-go containers
  33. Nursing Necklace
  34. Hair bands/accessories for girls
  35. Clip on fan for stroller

Toddlers: Ages 1 to 2

This is such a fun (and sometimes trying) age! Toddlers are just figuring out how to get around efficiently and how to communicate effectively. Exploring a Christmas stocking is especially exciting for this age group because it gives them permission to do what toddlers do best… dump a bunch of stuff out onto the ground and spread it all around the house.

Similar to the infant phase, many of these stocking stuffer ideas can be mixed in with things the child actually needs. Make sure everything is safe (no small, breakable parts) washable and nontoxic. Here is a list of 30 stocking stuffer ideas for toddlers:

  1. Bubbles
  2. Crayons
  3. Sidewalk Chalk
  4. Finger Paints
  5. Washable Markers
  6. Bath Foam (Mr. Bubbles is the best!)
  7. Bath Crayons
  8. Stickers
  9. BAND-AIDS
  10. Bath Paints
  11. Bath Bombs
  12. Bath toys small enough to fit in a stocking
  13. Character themed washcloths
  14. Soft or squishy balls
  15. Small stuffed animals
  16. New Undies (Especially if you are gearing up for potty training!)
  17. Rolled up cotton pajamas
  18. T-shirts
  19. Pants or Leggings (or even cotton dresses for girls)
  20. Small baby dolls
  21. Trucks
  22. Play-doh
  23. Sunglasses
  24. Small board Books

  26. Squeezable fruit and veggie pouches (like a Go-Go Squeezers)
  27. Gift Card to get Frozen Yogurt
  28. Gift Card to their favorite fast food restaurant
  29. Bathing Suit
  30. Sippy Cups

If your child is going to be 3 or 4 this Christmas you are in for a treat! I feel like this is the age when the “magic” of Christmas is in full swing.

Here is your seriously huge list of Christmas stocking stuffer toys, trinkets and other ideas for both boys and girls ages birth to 10. Finding the right gifts for your kids can be a challenge so this list is here to help! Christmas presents for kids, Christmas gifts for young girls and boys.

Girls: Ages 5 to 10 (and possibly up)

I love it now that my kids are getting older. Yes, it is sad that they aren’t so tiny and innocent anymore and I can tell that my 8 year old totally suspects that Dad and Mom are Mr. and Mrs. Claus (crying all the tears) but there is still tons of fun to be had!

The spirit and the joy of Christmas are still going strong! We still love to decorate the tree and house, bake cookies and make gingerbread houses with grandma, listen to Christmas music for weeks on end, watch all the traditional movies and drive around town looking at lights!

As far as stockings go at this age, it is my personal opinion that shopping for girls is easier than shopping for the boys. It just seems like there are so many more stocking sized trinkets for girls.

Also, if you read through both of the lists, I think many girls would love stuff found on both of them but I am not so sure you could say the same for the boys.

But you know your kids and what they would like better than I do! So read both and see what you think! Here is a list of 40 stocking stuffers ideas for girls ages 5 to 10 (and possibly beyond!):
