Cheap Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Kids

Every year my kids look forward to all the small treats they’ll find in their Christmas stockings.

We have a tradition of opening presents on Christmas Eve, and then doing stockings in the morning.

My husband and I both grew up with this tradition in our homes, so it seemed natural to carry on the same practice in our own home.

In the months leading up to December, my husband and I keep our eyes open for special deals and fun things to put in our kids’ stockings.

We love to include useful things but also some “just for fun” items.

Useful items would be things like socks, hair accessories for the girls, lotion, lip balm, ear buds, etc.

Fun items are things like candy (we prefer healthier, dye-free options), activity books, and small toys.
