Christmas was a HUGE deal when I was growing up. My mum spent months and months collecting the perfect gifts for my sister and me, and while I have fond memories of waking up to find what looked like a million gifts under our tree on Christmas morning, it was my stocking that often excited me the most. My mother had a knack for always finding the best stocking stuffers for kids – puzzles, games, stickers, books, cassette tapes, coloring books, smelly markers, loud instruments, arts and crafts, candies, chocolates, bubbles – and she painstakingly wrapped every. single. item. before carefully placing our ‘sock of treats’ on our beds so we would feel them with our legs when we woke up on Christmas morning.
It was magical.
And while I often gave my mother a hard time for keeping the traditional going until I was well into my 30s – she knows I stopped believing in 4th grade, right? – you better believe I’m going to pass the tradition down to my own daughter.
The only problem is that I don’t have as much willpower as my mother did when I was a kid. As soon as I buy a gift for someone, especially my daughter, I want to give it to them straight away, which means I’m usually racing against time and scrambling for ideas once December hits.
But now that my daughter is old enough to not only fully appreciate the concept of Santa Claus, but understand that he will be landing on our roof and climbing down our chimney now that we’ve made the move from condo living to suburban life, it’s time to step it up and make things happen.
So, in the name of online shopping, I’ve gathered together 99 stocking stuffers for kids aged 12 months to 7 years to take the stress out of Christmas for myself and everyone else in my life. I’ve included Amazon affiliate links to all of my recommended stocking stuffers for kids below (don’t worry – affiliate links don’t cost you a penny more – they just allow me to earn a small commission for my recommendations) so all you have to do is scroll through the list, see if you like anything, and get yourself one step closer to completing your Christmas shopping!
