5. Fuzzy Socks– Who doesn’t love getting fuzzy socks?!

6. Nose Pencil Sharpener– Sure, it’s silly, but the kids love it!

13. Glow in the Dark Stars– I had these in my bedroom as a kid, and now our boys do too, because they were in their stockings a few years ago.

14. Silly Putty– Isn’t it funny how some toys come back around? Although, silly putty may have never gone out of style.

15. Small flashlight– This has become a staple for our kid’s stockings. Although it’s typical for us, it’s something worth mentioning, because kids love flashlights!

16. Yo-Yo– If you’re husband is anything like mine, he will immediately try to take their yo-yo and show off all of the cool tricks he mastered as a kid.

17. Kid’s cologne– I didn’t know this was a thing until yesterday, but it is 100% going in our boy’s stockings this year. They love using Dad’s cologne, so having their very own will be a great surprise. There are all kinds!

18. Knockaround Sunglasses– I have a pair of Knockaround sunglasses, and they are my absolute favorite right now. They are great quality, but come at an even better price point. Kid’s sunglasses are $10.

19. Original Slinky– There isn’t a slinky out there that works better than the original!

20. Stephen Joseph Kid’s Wallet– Both of our boys have wallets by this brand. Wheel’s has a race car wallet, and Wesley has a robot wallet. Whenever they have an event at school, like a bake sale, I put their money in their wallet and let them take it in their book bags. They love feeling big! They have styles for girls as well!

Mom of WAR- Stocking Stuffers


  1. I absolutely love the idea of Reindeer Farts, lol! What kid wouldn’t want to receive that in their stocking?!?! We love to include practical (socks, lip gloss) gifts in their stocking and some fun ones as well.


  2. Absolutely love these ideas! We’re not doing stockings this year. However, I plan on doing a cute little care basket for my daughters’ and fill it with essentials and self-care items they enjoy. P.S. I used to LOVE those “find the items” in a magazine subscription I got as a child. 😊 Thanks for bringing it to my remembrance!


  3. Most of these can be inexpensive additions. I love the boys cologne. This would be a fun DIY addition for siblings if you have a kiddo who loves experiments. Thanks for sharing!
