With Christmas just around the corner, we’re all in get-it-done mode. If you’re looking for simple and fun stocking stuffers that aren’t candy—since our littles are sweet enough!—this list should help. This list of stocking stuffers for toddlers include items that my girls have loved (and that I hope they love this year!) and I hope it helps you finish up your holiday shopping with ease.
Depending on how your family does Christmas morning, stockings may get more or less attention. In our family, they are often a bit of an afterthought, opened long after the pile under the tree has been tackled. But these stocking stuffer ideas will give your toddler a few things they might need (fun bandaids and toothbrushes!) but also offer simple ways to keep them entertained and happy over the winter holidays. I love how these simple products, art supplies, and simple gifts can provide smaller doses of happy—even if you pick just 2-3 to tuck into your toddler’s stocking.
I’d love to hear what stocking stuffers you plan to give your toddler so we can add to the list—and so that we all have more ideas to choose from next year that fit our toddler’s interests!
