The Best Stocking Stuffer Ideas for the Whole Family

The Best Stocking Stuffer Ideas for the Whole Family

Sharing is caring!

Happy Monday! With Christmas only 22 days away, I am sharing a list of some quality stocking stuffer ideas.

Interestingly, I do not have stockings for my own family. Living in Florida, we do not have a fireplace or a mantle to hang stockings.

While I have seen many of my friends hang stockings in other creative ways, I have made a tradition of loading canvas sacks like this one with “stocking stuffers” for each of my kids.

While searching Pinterest for stocking stuffer ideas, I noticed that many of the ideas I’d come across were items that wouldn’t last long because they were poor quality, novelty, or gag items. If you are anything like me, you prefer to give quality over quantity, particularly with kid items.

I find that it is so easy to accumulate lots of cheaply-made junky toys that clutter the home.  If you want to fill your loved one’s stockings with quality items they are sure to enjoy and find functional, this is the list for you.

Here you will find stocking stuffer ideas for mom, dad, sister, and brother.

I hope the list is helpful and inspires your gift-giving this year. Happy Holidays!

I love all of these stocking stuffer ideas, Ashley! I've never seen mini Jenga before, but that looks like so much fun. Bananagrams is another game I enjoy playing. I like how you included a collection for crafty kids--that was always (and usually still is) my fave category for gifts.

My husband is a huge board game person, so I like finding little games like bananagrams to put in his stocking! I've also gotten him things like card sleeves and special rubber bands to hold boxes together.

These are all great. I love including mini toys in my boy's stockings including candy.

Same! But I struggle with not eating my kid's candy before Christmas Day.

I think stocking stuffers can be some of the best gifts! I like finding little things that can be useful and meaningful (and honestly, I fill my own stocking most of the time lol). I love these ideas, especially the Yeti mug (and that it also comes in pink!!).

These are great ideas. I have to say that Bananagrams is great for any age. My mom and sister play it all the time.

So true! I love Bananagrams.
