Buying toddler stocking stuffers is one of my favorite things about the holiday season. Whether you gift a stocking stuffer for St. Nick or Christmas, these small and simple gifts can really make a toddler feel excited about the holiday season. Because our son was so young last Christmas, we really didn’t buy him many gifts.

Best toddler stocking stuffers
So this year I’m really excited to buy a few gifts for him. These are all items we have in our home or hope to purchase this holiday season. The best part about these toddler stocking stuffers is that they are all under $10. That’s my kind of budget!
1. Printable Visual Routine Cards
These are perfect for any toddler or preschooler (and bonus…they are actually make life a whole lot easier for parents!). They include bedtime, morning, mealtime and chore routine cards, a set of blank cards, and two editable templates. Use coupon code holiday50 at checkout to get 50% off your order, and you’ll snag this stocking stuffer for $3.99 (normally $7.99). Grab your routine cards here.
Super cute and fun, take them anywhere on the go or put them in the bathtub. There is also a Disney Princess Finger Puppet set too.
Soft and squishy, Play-Doh has a fun texture toddlers love. Stretching, pounding, and molding it into different shapes is great for hand strength and dexterity. We get this toddler stocking stuffer each year. We always need more play-doh.
4. Created by Me! Monster Truck
These tiny adorable monster trucks or race cars are perfect for a quick project with your toddler. It’s easy enough that they can put it together, paint it and place stickers on without too much help.
5. Mini Mouse Brush and Comb Set
Easy grip and small handles for little ones. Hair brushing goes so much easier when kids are excited about the brush.
6. Melissa and Doug Scissor Skills Activity Book
One skill toddlers love to work on is scissor skills. What better than a book specifically designed for it?! This is a hit.
7. Wiki Sticks
Kids can make all sorts of designs with these soft and pliable Wiki Sticks. Easy for little hands to use – calming sensory activity – and big kids love them just as much.
Fun and functional sensory toys that pop, stretch, and connect making these pop tubes the go-to toy for playtime.
9. Pull Back Construction Racers
9 toy cars in total, 3 different kinds of construction vehicles including 3 bulldozers, 3 dumpers and 3 excavators.
11. Easy Paper Airplanes for Kids Kit
Designed for ages 3-7, these are super easy to make and instantly fun. Models include a space shuttle, air rescue unit, princess plane, jungle jet, monster machine, and other playful motifs.
12. Mini Rainbow Scratch Paper
This art box of rainbow mini notes includes 125 easy to use rainbow mini papers which toddlers can use to make doodles and create cool designs.
13. Wacky Tracks Snap and Click Fidget Toys
Each of the 24 tracks can pivot and lock into 5 positions, you can create any shapes you want, such as letters, numbers, symbols, etc..bring challenges and fun to toddler’s fingers and brain.
Christmas is always a good time to stock up on basic hygiene products like toothbrushes, toothpaste, socks and underwear.
Learn and practice letter recognition and letter sounds.
16. Melissa & Doug Water Wow Coloring Book
This book has 4 animal-themed coloring boards and refillable water pen. You can reuse the pages over and over again. Using the water pen, your toddler can color the pages to see the colors. Great for fine motor development.
17. Triangular Crayons Extra Jumbo
The triangle shape is more ergonomic than traditional round crayons, making it easier for toddlers to handle while coloring. The is another toddler stocking stuffer we get again and again each year. Always need a set of replacement crayons.
19. Hair ties and accessories.
Super small and easy to fit in any stocking, hair ties and accessories or any type of jewelry toddlers may like is perfect.
20. Lip balm
Anything fun or creative that looks like a toy is even better.
21. Scented Pencils.

Pahaha. Right? Too funny. It went live on my site not too long ago. Last week? I am giving it away to subscribers now and then may try to sell it after Christmas.

Great list Lauren. I kind of miss the coloring shower gels we had in USA – our kids loved them! I’m sure Lesley would still have fun with Crayola and Play Doh is favorite thing in school! (Even though she is no longer a toddler!)
I’m kind of intrigued to get the crayola bath dropz and crayons. I think it would really make bath time pretty unique for my son.
I love that toothbrush and the pop-up book. Very cute ideas. 🙂
Those are totally cute, aren’t they? I hope you have a great Thanksgiving Charlee!
This is awesome. I googled stocking stuffers for toddlers and found this post, and it’s perfect. I want to get him everything on it! Sadly, that toothbrush is out of stock and I can’t find it available anywhere else online either, but it looks like there’s a Trolls one that is similar, so either way, I’m glad you pointed out the toothbrush that sings, hopefully it helps encourage him to want to brush, so far that’s not going so well. Thanks for all the great ideas!
