Introduction

How about over 100 kids stocking stuffers to help with Christmas shopping?

My children are definitely in the “kids” age group right now. We've been through both the toddler and the baby stage. With those age ranges, you can give gifts that can be a little bit more practical.

With stocking stuffers for kids, you get to have a lot more fun with gift giving! Stockings for kids can be as simple as small trinkets and toys from Santa. Once you throw in a little bit of candy as a filler and you've got a great stocking.

The ideas in this list of stocking stuffers are great for kids of all ages. From preschoolers to younger teens, you'll find great options for small gifts. As I do in my other stocking stuffer posts, I've tried to include both practical and fun ideas.

In this collection, you'll find everything from reading comprehension cubes to thinking putty. I've got a lot of fun ideas in this post that could work for so many different interests. There are lots of fun gift ideas for boys and girls!

Tip: Use These Ideas as Small Gifts

There's no reason these ideas can't be small gifts instead of Christmas stocking stuffers! You absolutely don't have to limit the ideas in this collection to Christmas morning. These gift ideas would be great for a birthday party gift or friend gift.

In addition, stocking stuffers in this lineup can even be a fun Christmas gift for those grown-ups that are kids at heart. Most of these are fun gifts for kids of all ages.

As a bonus, these small gift ideas are perfect if you need a last-minute idea for your kiddo. Most items in this post are from stores like Amazon that provide fast shipping on their purchases. And fast shipping is essential for those last-minute shoppers like myself. 🙂

Make Your Stocking Stuffers Age Appropriate

The category of “kids” can be pretty broad when it comes to age ranges. It's hard to know what the best gifts are for particular age ranges. This year, I realized that it might be kind of hard to find which gifts are appropriate for the age group for which you're trying to shop.

So, next to each item in this collection, I've marked the age range I thought would be best for each gift. You'll find the following age ranges marked in this stocking stuffer idea lineup…

Throughout this collection, I've broken this list of kids stocking stuffer ideas down by interest category. Next to each item, you'll find the appropriate age range for that item. Of course, this is only a suggestion.

That suggestion might not be limited to just that age range! Most of these gift ideas span across a wide range of age groups. You know what's best for your child and their developmental level.

Tip: If you're looking for a particular age range, simply use the “find” function on your internet browser to search for the age category you need.

Finally, let's get to this lineup of the best stocking stuffer ideas I could find for children!
