It’s the season to be jolly… for everyone except the stressed mum who’s realised the stockings still need to be filled! I pride myself in being super organised for Christmas every year, yet I still never know what to send to Santa to fill the stockings with. Of course you’ve got the usual piece of chocolate, a magazine and an orange, but you’re stuck for the rest. Here’s my list of stocking filler ideas for the whole family that won’t break the bank!
Best Stocking Filler Ideas For Your Little Ones
Little ones are the easiest to buy for, ELC have lots of great small Happyland figures that are perfect to wrap up as stockings and if you’re stuck for a main gift idea there are plenty of Happyland bits for that too (at 8 years old my eldest still loves it!). Another great stocking filler for littles ones is books, babies and toddlers can never have enough books, they’re great for learning and a wonderful snuggly activity that you can do together. My children loved the ‘that’s not my’ series and I enjoyed reading it too.
Best Stocking Filler Ideas For Your Kids
You got new pencil cases in September? I can almost guarantee that they’re already empty and everything inside is missing already! Stockings are a great time to refill the pencil case with snazzy rubbers, sharpeners, pencils and pens. Sensory toys are in this year too and many love sensory toys for children with Autism, although the fidget spinners are now out, kids love the rubber that you can pop (rubber bubble wrap anyone?!). Finally small packs of play sand or slime make a great stocking filler gift. Just enough that the kids can get creative, but not enough to make a mess everywhere – we hope!
Best Stocking Filler Ideas For Mum
If your house is anything like mine then mum (me!) always gets left out of the stocking ideas. I think I’ve re-gifted myself a bubble bath and a backstracter for the past 3 years. This year however I’m getting something new. Ideas for mums include a new book, some bubble bath and some of her favourite makeup. However if you’re filling up your own stocking, why not go for something you’re interested in? This year I’m going to get myself a book and a pack of Animal Crossing Amiibo cards.
Best Stocking Filler Ideas For Dad
I don’t know why but I always find my husband really hard to purchase for when it comes to stocking fillers. He seems to be one of those people that has everything he needs. This year I’ve been thinking he could do with a spare pair of headphones, Skullcandys are a great option, they’re on the cheaper end of the scale but look nice and have good sound quality too. If your husband is a gamer like mine, another great idea is a game voucher for his favourite platform or something like a stress ball for when he loses at mario kart again!
Best Stocking Filler Ideas For Your Pets
Of course we can’t forget the pets, but they’re the easiest to buy for out of the lot. Grab a bag of treats, a tinned christmas dinner or a new toy and be done!
That’s everyone on your list done, now heat up the mulled wine, grab a mince pie and relax, Christmas is all wrapped up.
