the ultimate stocking stuffer guide for the whole family
I don’t know about you, but stocking stuffers always end up being the last thing on my Christmas gift checklist.
As I wrack my brain over the little things to get myself, my husband and the kiddos I realized that my life would be a whole lot easier if I made a quick, go-to list that I could fall back on every year.
Im guessing a lot of you may feel the same.
This year I gathered up OVER 100 ideas and broke them down into 5 easy categories.
PLUS all of these ideas can be shopped in ONE EASY PLACE!
Note: at the time this gift guide was written my kids are ages 12, 10, 7 and 5
Stocking Stuffer Categories:
Toiletries: I honestly love buying travel sizes to stay stocked up for any special family trips that will be taken that year, or specialty items that we only need or use every so often
Toothpaste, toothbrushes, bath sponges, deodorant, face wash, makeup remover wipes, razors, hand soap/lotion, Floss Sticks, Travel bottles, Travel toiletry bag, zit patches, shower steamers, skincare masks, eye patches, makeup bags
Special Extras: These are the things in our lives that tend to break easily OR end up being special little things that we wouldn’t necessarily buy ourselves on a regular basis.

Family Fun/Crafts: One of our favorite things the past few years is bringing card games to restaurants. It’s a great way for the family to stay interactive, and keeps the titles occupied without screens! We also love staying home a lot the week after Christmas and these little extra activities come in handy!
Card games, Chalk, Paper Airplane kits, Doodle Sticks, Crayons, Markers, Sharpies, Ball pump, Origami Puzzles, Rubik’s cube, stickers, joke books, mini puzzles, Walkie talkie, sling shots
