Every year it’s the same. Mid-December rolls around and I realize that the month has gotten away from me.
Between work, school events, and holiday parties, I’ve been too busy to do my holiday shopping and still have lots to do in the stocking stuffer and gift department. I always vow that next year (next year!), I will get it all together early so this doesn’t happen again.
But for now, I give myself the task of finding the perfect stocking stuffer mix:
- Small enough to fit in a stocking
If you’re in this last-minute boat with me, here’s the stocking stuffer guide for you.
A big thank you to Magic Stix markers for sponsoring this post! As always, all opinions expressed are my own.
The Perfect Stocking Stuffer Mix
Note: This stocking stuffer guide is best for 4-10 year olds.
*Magic Stix are markers that won’t dry out even when the cap is left off for 7 days! I wrote more about the magic of Magic Stix here, including how I tested them.
2-3 assorted Christmas candy and snack items such as a large candy cane, foil-wrapped Christmas chocolates, Pez, a hot cocoa packet, snack-sized goldfish, gum, etc
2-5 small useful objects such as a fun toothbrush, fuzzy socks, a bath bomb, training chopsticks, erasers, pencils, a wet brush, hair accessories, silly straws, a kitchen tool such as a child-sized whisk or spatula
So there you have it. My definitive, last-minute stocking stuffer shopping guide. And you know that I’m half tongue-in-cheek when I say that, right? But only half. By all means, add your own ideas or perfect mix in a comment below!
