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.
