This year's stocking stuffer gifts series is beginning to wind down! I've had a wonderful time sharing some of my favorite items for your family's stockings. From babies to adults, we've almost covered every area of stocking stuffer suggestions.

A ton of research goes into these posts each year. As I was researching, I kept coming across the same terms - "unique, creative, and fun." Sure, you can give the same old candy in a stocking, but this is a such a fun place to give unique gifts.

I knew I had to take on the challenge of finding over 100 fun stocking stuffers for this post. This ain't your everyday list of candy and trinkets, friends. πŸ™‚ I've developed a lineup of really cool, creative small gifts in this list. You'll find everything from functional kitchen tools to gag gifts for kids (and kids at heart).

Who's included in this list?

This is a collection of stocking stuffers for everybody! There are small gift ideas for kids all the way to adults. I divide most of my lists by age group. But, this collection of 101 stocking stuffer ideas goes across the ages. You'll find ideas for all family and friends, from baby to grandma.

I've included a lot of creative stocking stuffers for younger kids and teens. I've also dedicated a large part of the list to stocking stuffers for adults.

Usually, adult stockings are harder to fill. It's simple to buy a couple of small toys and candy for kids, but adult stocking stuffers tend to be tricky. I love that the individual items in this collection are so unique. You're not going to find most of these ideas on another stocking stuffer list!

Can stocking stuffers be both fun and practical?

I spent hours looking for the most creative, unique, and quirky items on the internet. I tried to keep the prices of these stocking fillers low (usually under $10). But, trust me, these items will stand out in the mounds of small gifts and stocking stuffers sure to pile up in your home.

Many of these gifts are actually practical too. So many of these are small gadgets that make life easier. This list works for both stocking stuffers and small gifts for the ones you love!

Where do you buy stocking stuffers?

I'm a big fan of shopping for stocking stuffers from my couch. πŸ™‚ Amazon is a frequent flyer on my search for stocking stuffers (and all gifts, for that matter). I also love stores like Nordstrom, Target, and Walmart. These stores all have inexpensive and usually quick shipping.

For inexpensive ideas, dollar stores are a must. I find so many fun, cheap stocking stuffer ideas at Dollar Tree each year! No, there are not going to be high-quality items. For me, the perfect stocking has a mix of both quality gifts and cheap, fun, short-term toys.

If you're looking for a gift idea with a unique twist, Etsy is a wonderful resource! There are countless homemade holiday gifts that would make anybody's Christmas morning special. These are off-the-beaten-path ideas that are often made to suit the customer. And, as a bonus, you're supporting small businesses when you shop with Etsy sellers.

You can find perfect stocking stuffers everywhere - you just have to know what you're looking for! Any fun small gift can be a stocking stuffer. If Santa can fit it in a stocking, it works!

101 Fun Stocking Stuffers

Let's take a look at 101 fun stocking stuffers for the whole family, organized by gift recipient. There are great stocking stuffers for adults, kids, and even the difficult-to-buy-for teen/tween group.

    Wow! These are great ideas! πŸ™‚ I will need to get an ice roller sometime in the future. I will share from Create With Joy's Linky Party.

    Leslie, thanks for such a thoughtful list! I might even just gather some of the items from your other two very helpful lists and some from this and rather than using them for stocking stuffers put together a holiday survival box and send it down for the grandbabies. I have seven! It would be great to have fun little items to keep the kids occupied when they get out of school for the break!

    Thanks for sharing with us at Fiesta Friday!


  4. I've checked off several that I'll be passing on to my family! Thanks for sharing your list with us at the Creative Muster. Looking forward to seeing what you’ll be sharing next week. Pinned!
