Stocking Stuffer Ideas for the Kids

Out of all the Christmas traditions that we have as a family I would say that stockings are my absolute favorite thing. There is something fun about walking into the room on Christmas morning and seeing all the stockings hanging from the fireplace and packed full of goodies.

As a child our Great Grandmother would fill our stockings with all sorts of candy, socks, and underwear. Yes she was that lady. After she passed away and we moved in with our guardian Neil he would fill our stockings with all sorts of things like Starbucks gift cards, nail polish and lipgloss for my little sister and I, fun Christmas socks, DVD's, and other goodies. 

Now that I am a mother of three under the age of five it gets a bit tricky with filling stockings. I like to limit the candy intake as much as possible and fill it with things my kids need but actually like. I have put together some ideas to help those who might need some stocking stuffer ideas for the kids. I based them off my three but you can switch things up depending on the gender of your littles and their age. Here are some of the items that I have picked out.
