Stocking Stuffer Ideas 2014

Here are some of my favorite stocking stuffers!  They’re inexpensive, gender-neutral, and lots of fun!  These choices are aimed for the preschool- early elementary crowd.

1) Fun Flavored Lip Balms!  There are lots of great flavors out there, and what better way to keep your kids’ lips moisturized during the winter?  I recommend buying a large pack and diving them up between all the stockings.

Hershey’s 7-pack of Lip Balms, $14.99

2) Travel Games!  Small-sized games are great for playing in the car or taking on trips.

Travel Guess Who? $11.94

3) Milk Straws- Drink through these straws to make your plain milk more fun and tasty!

Milk Magic Straws, $13.49 for 24 straws in 4 flavors

4) Novelty Pens- I used to use all sorts of weird pens when I was a server back in college.  So. Much. Fun.

Gummy Bear Pen, $5.02

5)  A Creative Pencil Sharpener– for making homework time a little bit cooler

Nose Pencil Sharpener, $3.80

6) Temporary Tattoos–  Because they’re fun, that’s why!

Despicable Me Temporary Tattoos, 24 tattoos for $1.49

7) Simple Magic Tricks– This one is for the slightly older crowd.  Magic tricks give kids a chance to take pride in learning a “secret” that they can amaze people with.  They really take pride in being able to do something others can’t figure out!  Magic tricks are a fun learning experience!

Stop Lights Card Trick, $4.00

8) A Classic Kaleidoscope- They’re relaxing and inspiring.  I love kaleidoscopes.

Classic Tin Kaleidoscope, $7.91

9) Jelly Belly Jelly Beans – My mom still puts these in my stocking stuffers every year, and I always look forward to them.

Jelly Belly, 7 oz bag $5.55

10)  Pretend Dinosaur Fossil– After you find all the pieces, you have to figure out how they go together, then you can display the dinosaur bones wherever you like!  This is a great intro to archeology, and would be super fun for kids.

Dinosaur Fossil, $9.99

That’s all for now!  Enjoy!!!
