Holiday Gift Guide 03: Stocking Stuffers for Todders & Preschoolers

Growing up, every Christmas morning my family and I would open our stockings before sitting down for breakfast and then opening Christmas gifts. I remember as a child being so excited about the stockings, that I almost looked forward to them more than the actual gifts! My mom (ahem, I mean Santa), would do such a good job of finding just the items that we loved. My childhood love of stockings has continued as I am planning Christmas for my girls and husband as well.

So with that being said, today I am going to be talking about stockings for preschoolers/toddlers! One thing I try to do is ensure that I am not buying too many things for their stockings, and that I stick to a budget. If you are anything like me, you frequent the Target, Michael's and other stores with so many cute and affordable items. It is easy to keep buying and buying, and spend too much money, ending up with toys that don't even fit in the stocking - I speak from personal experience, ha!

One other thing that I try to do is add stocking stuffers that won't be looked at for a second and then thrown out. With Cyber Monday approaching this is a great opportunity to buy stocking stuffers that are affordable and your kids will love! Most of the items below are on sale and/or have free shipping this weekend! There are shopable affiliate links below this image to find these stocking stuffer ideas!
