Re: Stocking stuffer ideas

So far I've got coloring books, lip balm/gloss, bubbles, toothbrushes, and a couple special treats per kid. DD may get some hair stuff. Was going to do crayons, but we couldn't wait and I just bought the huge box . Not sure if I'll do anything else or not yet. We're still working on being more minimal so I'm not trying to cram them full of stuff.

Haha isn't that a funny list? She highlighted and put stars next to donuts too.

Re: Stocking stuffer ideas

I don't think we're really going to do stockings this year (DS is only 2 and DD is only going to be about 5 months). But I was planning to do Schleich animals for DS. We might still pick him up a couple of them and put them in the little stocking we have.

I like things like paint or play doh, that will get used up.

My mom always put an orange in the bottom of our stocking. Then we got stuff we needed (like, new deoderant and razors when we were older), lip stuff, gift cards, and chocolate. I don't recall what was in them when we were little (except the oranges, haha).

Re: Stocking stuffer ideas

This will be my first year doing stockings -- I got some really cute ones after Christmas last year. I'm still figuring out what will go in them. I've got a toothbrush/paste for each of the boys, and they will each get an apple or orange. DH I'm going to get some of the candy he likes. Beyond that, I'm still figuring out!

Washable stamp pads! We do finger print crafts / presents and make stamps out of old sponges and other found objects like pine cones and rocks.

Re: Stocking stuffer ideas

there is a coop right now for oriental trading that has some fun stocking stuffers, great for filling up the empty space in a stocking.

Re: Stocking stuffer ideas

We do "something to eat, something to read, something to play with & something they need". It makes it easy & keeps me from going overboard (except on the eat part LOL). I just told my 22 year old my formula & she was shocked - she had never realized that I did that! LOL

I find it is minimal waste - food gets eaten, we get "keeper" books whenever possible (or special magazine subscriptions), something they need is obviously not going to be trashed, so the only questionable item is something to play with, but we try to really target each person. Crafty kids might get supplies, musicians can get something for that, gamers might get a remote they want or a game, our teen dd usually gets make-up.
