Great things really do come in small packages, like these fun stocking stuffers


Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Kids

Great holiday gifts don't have to be elaborate or expensive. Sometimes, the best holiday gifts, especially for kids, are some fun and thoughtful stocking stuffers.

Here are some ideas for fun stocking stuffers for kids:


  • Glow sticks
  • Deck of playing cards
  • Colorful Post-Its
  • Wall ball
  • Matchbox Cars
  • Girls:

  • Jacks
  • Hello Kitty erasers, pencils -- just about anything!
  • Colorful Post-Its (Flowers or Hearts)
  • Pretty hair clips
  • LittleMissMatched Socks
  • Everyone:

  • Diary
  • A diary or a journal can be a great way for kids to express their feelings in a safe and secure place. It can be as therapeutic for kids as it is for adults!
  • Natural Lip Balm
  • Cold winter winds can be very harsh on kids' delicate lips. Give them a couple of natural lip balms such as ones from Alba. School-age kids can feel very grown-up having lip balms of their very own tucked away in school bags and coat pockets.
  • Night Light
  • Even older kids sometimes still need a light to make the night fear-free.
  • National Geographic Kids
  • With its fun and challenging puzzles and games and its lively and interesting articles and amazing pictures, National Geographic Kids is a magazine kids will love getting in their stocking.
  • Barnes and Noble Tikatok Gift Card
  • If your child loves to draw and write stories, Barnes and Noble’s Tikatok.com can help him create a book of his words and pictures. This easy-to-use site can help kids create an eBook, a hardcover book, or a softcover book, completely out of their own imagination or with some prompting help to inspire their creativity.
