Stocking Stuffer Gifts
Boon Pipes Building Bath Tub Toy
Bath toys are a great, inexpensive stocking stuffer for this age group. My son loves this pipes bath toy from Boon. It’s provided hours of fun in the tub – plus it’s good for ages 12 months and up.
Crayola Color Bath Dropz
What could be cooler than colored bath water? Not much if you’re a little kid! This container comes with blue, red, and yellow tablets, which allows you to make many different colored bath water combinations. The biggest complaint for this item is that the color is not as intense as the previous iteration of the product. But I’ve found that it’s easy to create a more intense color by adding another tablet or two.
MAPIXO Light-Up Floating Dinosaur Bath Toys Set
Glow stick baths can be fun, but if you’re looking for a reusable option, check out these light-up floating dinosaur bath toys. These dinos light up as soon as they hit the water, and turn off automatically as they dry out. We’ve had this set for over a year, and they’re still working great!
The novelty of fuzzy socks is not lost on my 5 year old, and I plan on adding a pair or two in his stocking this year. This set of Christmas- themed cozy socks from Gymboree is festive and comes in a selection of sizes.
Maple Landmark NameTrain Bright Letter Car
I like to include something with my child’s name or initials in his stocking. So when I came across these Letter Train Cars, it was the perfect fit!
LEGO DUPLO Town Farm Animal Care
These small LEGO DUPLO sets are a fun addition to any stocking for a toddler or preschooler. These sets are inexpensive and typically include pieces you don’t find in the larger sets.
BunMo Pop Tubes Sensory Toys
These sensory tubes are a lot of fun for little kids, and they’re perfect for on the go – making them ideal for holiday gifts.
Colorful Fun Animal Reusable Silicone Drinking Straws for Kids
Stocking stuffers for kids at this age don’t need to be crazy or expensive. Every day items that are a little bit special make great gifts. These reusable silicone straws are colorful and feature cute animals – and conveniently fit easily into a stocking.
The Original Slinky Brand Plastic Slinky
Yes, this is a Slinky, just like when we were kids. Yes, it’s still a lot of fun. And yes, you will have to untangle it at least 3 times on Christmas morning – but it’s worth it.
Melissa & Doug Sunny Patch Giddy Buggy Flashlight
Rounding out our list of stocking stuffers is another every day item, but fun. This flashlight from Melissa & Doug looks like a colorful lightning bug and is durable enough to survive being dropped repeatedly from a toddler bed. Plus this flashlight helps keep my kiddo in bed by letting him read and check out far off corners of his room for monsters.
