This is the best stocking stuffer list ever because all your ideas are going to be on it. I’ve started with what I can think of, then I’ll come back and add your ideas up here after you put them in the comments. You can’t leave the page without adding an idea, got it?
This year we are only giving one gift to each of our kids. The kids drew names among each other, so they will each have 2 gifts to open. Then there’s the stockings. I wrapped up smaller gifts for the stockings and spent a little more on some items–up to $15. The idea is that these are things my kids actually need and will use, and won’t be clutter. The more expensive things are items they’ve been asking for and waiting to get for awhile, but things that weren’t so important that they had to have them right away. Things like a wallet or a watch or gloves with texting fingers. I’d rather do fewer gifts that were useful, than fill our house with bargain clutter. Either way I spend about the same.
I’ve linked to some items for your convenience, but they aren’t affiliate links. My state is on the list of states that Amazon won’t work with.
A lot of the items are generic. I didn’t want to put the same item on each list, so I stuck it on just one of them. I’m sure girls would like Silly Putty too and I’d be as thrilled with a protein bar as Darren would.
Breakfast items–doughnuts, muffins, fruit, cinnamon roll, or single serving fun cereal (so the kids can eat without waking mom and dad)
Fun food they don’t normally get to have, like Spaghetti-o’s
