If you need last minute stocking stuffers for little kids, I’ve got some practical but fun ideas in this post sponsored by Jasco Projectables.
Growing up, there were two rules on Christmas morning. Rule number one, you didn’t wake mom and dad up before up before 7AM. Rule number two, you were only allowed to get into your stockings that were lined up perfectly along the couch. Presents were off limits until mom and dad had coffee but until then we could dig into those stocking stuffers to our heart’s content. Because of that, Christmas stockings are extra special to me and something I look forward to filling each year.
Practical Stocking Stuffers for Little Kids
While I love filling stockings each year, I’m not one to go overboard with them. They get enough presents over the holiday as it is, so I like to go with practical stocking stuffers for little kids, that are also fun. Here’s a look at what stocking stuffers my twins will be getting this year if you want some ideas.
#1 Toothpaste and Toothbrush
I’ve always tucked toothpaste and a toothbrush into my kids’ stockings. Not gonna lie, it helps me remember to switch out their toothbrushes regularly. Plus, I have to buy them anyway so why not splurge a little for favorite characters or ones that vibrate and make them stocking stuffers.
#2 Stocking Hat & Gloves
I don’t know about your little kids, but my kids love hats and gloves. They wear them in the house in the middle of summer just because. They often lose a set during the winter too, so backups in their stocking will come in handy.
#3 Night Light
Two of my four kids hate the dark. For the older one, leaving a closet light on works. For the younger one, leaving a light on “is too bright for my eyes to sleep” she says, so a night light helps. This year I’m tucking night lights in each of the twins stockings because the Projectables® LED Night Lights by Jasco are so cool they’re both going to want one!
Projectables® Night Lights don’t just light up your little one’s room for bedtime, they also project a 3-foot image on the wall, ceiling or floor! The Motion Projectables have images that slowly drift across the room to create a calm, soothing effect to help those droopy eyelids enter dreamland.
Comforting and cost-effective, energy-efficient Projectables are currently available in single image night lights (plug-in) and six-image night lights (plug-in or battery-operated) featuring favorite characters like Paw Patrol and so bedtime never gets boring. The thing I’m going to love is the light-sensing technology that turns the night light on and off as needed. Simply plug it in and let it go to work!
Each of my kids gets a book in their stocking every year. Sometimes it’s a Christmas book and other times it’s the next book in the series they are reading. Many times we end up reading these books as a family on Christmas night. Curled up on the couch with hot cocoa and leftover sugar cookies, it’s a great way to end the day.
#5 Card Game
We love to play games and the twins are really into card games right now. They are the perfect size for stocking stuffers and super inexpensive. They also come in handy over snowed in days during winter break. Old Maid, Slap Jack, and Go Fish are great options if you don’t have those card games already.
