They might be some of the least expensive items on your gift-giving list, but that doesn’t mean that stocking stuffers can’t be just as thoughtful as all of the others! Spare your kids the predictable boring socks and candy canes, and get creative!  Check out some of our fun ideas and our Top 10 Stocking Stuffers for Kids:


Fun Stocking Stuffer Ideas:

  1.  Include a heartfelt note in each of your children’s stockings, expressing how proud you are of their achievements in the past year.  Afterward, paste the note in a special album and add a new note each year.  Use our NEW and exclusive I Love You Because Notecards, and seal the envelope with our exclusive I Love You Because Envelope Seals by designer Jillian Yee-Pham.  Stickers can also be used on gifts, a water bottle, on wrapping paper, or any other surface on which you want to share your love.  Shop HERE

2.  Start an annual tradition of giving a personalized Christmas ornament with your child’s name on it as well as the year.  If you have several children, get the whole family in on it and start an Ornament Exchange.  Choose who will give to whom and help your children pick their own design for their siblings, parents or grandparents.  See our collection of the fun, religious, serious and whimsical HERE



3.  Give her a personalized keepsake necklace that she will cherish forever and hand down to her own daughter someday!  Give boys a mini-version of dog tags, or a cool shark-tooth necklace.
