Stocking Stuffers For The Whole Family!

Christmas stockings can be a fun tradition for the whole family or a nice distraction to keep the kids busy on Christmas morning, while you get a little bit more sleep. Check out our full collection of Stocking Stuffer Ideas now!

For the Kids

1. Imagination & Learning

There's nothing like a whole galaxy of Glow in the Dark Stars on a bedroom ceiling to spark the imagination. Keep the kids occupied (let's be honest – you as well) with Science Experiment Kits and the classic Mentos Geyser Tube trick. Younger children can have fun recording and amplifying their voices with a Toy Microphone and learning to spell with Magnetic Letters.

2. Games

Games are the perfect stocking stuffer for kids of all ages! Classics like Barrel of Monkeys and Jenga provide an instant group activity for those Christmases away from home or for when those inevitable holiday guests arrive!

3. Puzzles & Brain Teasers

Buy yourself an even longer Christmas morning sleep in, by including a puzzle or brain teaser in the kids' stockings! Keep it classic with a Rubik's Cube OR The Crystal Puzzle range provides a decent challenge and results in a very cute collectible to display.

Bookworms

If you’ve been matched with a bookworm then look no further! Check out our Mammoth Book sale for amazing savings on over 1000 titles or if that doesn’t quite fit your secret santa budget… perhaps a pair of Book Nerd socks or a themed bookmark might fit the bill?

Top Gift Picks for Christmas 2019

Needing a bit of gift inspiration this year? Mighty Ape has you covered! Check out our 2019 Christmas Gift Guide and read on for ideas to suit anyone!

1. Christmas Treats

Sweet treats are the best kind of gift as they are likely to be shared with you! Christmas themed chocolates are ideal for when you’re on a tight budget but still love letting people know you’re thinking of them at Christmas time… or for that colleague you’ve been eyeing up as friend material (but you don’t want to come on ‘too strong’).

2. Summer Fun

Make sure your friends and family members are well stocked for Summer activities this year! Get your boisterous niece or nephew a Nerf N Strike Elite so they can terrorise the rest of your family at the Christmas BBQ. A quirky Ride-On inflatable unicorn lounger for pretty much anyone you know with a pool (who on earth doesn’t love unicorns!?). A portable BBQ for mum/dad/partner so you can all enjoy sausages on the go and a cute beach seat for an optimistic parent (you know they’ll be chasing kids up and down the beach all summer long leaving that seat wide open…for you).
