Kids’ stocking stuffers aren’t always the easiest to buy – small items are sometimes a waste of money, or are too expensive to just throw in a stocking. Here are four items that I like for both boys and girls – they are a nice size/price ratio and are toys kids will really want.
I first saw these at the Sweet Suite at BlogHer 2012, and I knew my son would love them. The launcher pack includes a car and a charger – simply add 3 AAA batteries. Once charged, the cars can zip around the separately sold tracks. Since everyone in my family is looking for ideas of items to get my son, this is a nice set to get him started with.
My daughter is difficult to buy for – as a tween, she’s too old for most toys but too young for teen gifts. But, one of the things she loves is arts and crafts, so I knew she’d love the Gelarti Scene Packs (available in Nature, Mermaids, Butterflies, Funky Fun and more). With Gelarti, she can paint her own stickers, let them dry, and then use them in her room, on her notebooks, etc.
Blingles are another great tween gift. With these theme pack sets, your daughter can create her own “blinged” out stickers. Again, these are great for notebooks, room decor, etc. The theme packs are available of themes including shimmering candy, sparkling princess, and more. These are also great toys to have on hand during playdates
My son loves trashies, and so this wheelie bin is perfect for him. It includes a playset and two exclusive trashies. It’s something he really enjoys collecting, so I’m always happy to keep adding to his collection.
