Inside: What are the best stocking stuffers for kids? Use these 35 ideas for under $10 to delight your kids while you grab a cup of coffee Christmas morning.
The holidays are magical. Making new memories, traditions (or not), time relaxing and enjoying family and friends, the smells, watching the smiles on your children’s faces…
But the holiday prep?
Now, that can be anything but magical. There is A LOT that goes into making the holidays magical for your family. The last thing you need is to stress out trying to come up with what to put in your child’s stockings.
You pour your heart into the quality time you intend to spend together, the meal that will bring you together for laughs and good conversation around the table, and the other necessary things like figuring out how to create a memorable Christmas affordably.
Then the Christmas “carnage” ensues.
Your kids wake up at the crack of dawn, crawl into your bed and poke at your eyes until you drag your tired body out of bed. After all, you were up until midnight wrapping presents.
It is magical, but I also like a little breathing room.
Which is why, I LOVE stocking stuffers for kids that are simple and easy! I like to grab a cup of coffee and breathe a little before the wrapping paper starts flying everywhere and I’ve got to start searching for batteries or putting together 100+ piece toys from Auntie Elaine.
