The holiday season is officially here, and gift giving is on everyone’s mind! Kids are busy making their Christmas lists for Santa and parents are trying their best to fulfill these requests. We typically get so focused on what presents we need to buy to place under the tree that we end up overlooking the other important part of Christmas related gifts: Stocking Stuffers! To help you avoid last-minute trips to the store - check out some of our favorite stocking stuffers from our children's online boutique that will be sure to excite your kids without breaking the bank!
Bigger is not always better- there are several little sized toys that pack the same punch in capturing your child’s attention! According to The Genius of Play, kids as young as three years old learn to understand the real world through realistic pretend play. Toys that prompt kids to use their imagination foster early developmental skills. More recently, fidgets have become very popular to keep kids occupied and to calm uneasy nerves. From stress balls to Squishies, small stuffed animals to putty- there are several toys to choose from that will make the best stocking stuffers!
A great way to help remind your child that Christmas is about more than just receiving gifts is to include a devotional book in their stocking. These types of books can help strengthen your child’s connection with God while also providing them with words of wisdom. For the younger ones, soft baby books or board books are a great alternative. Nothing creates more special memories with your little one than spending quality time reading together!
It’s not always easy to decide what to include in your littlest one’s stocking since they are still too young to fully understand the concept of a stocking stuffer. However, there are several options that are not only practical but super cute for the infant in your life. Pacifiers, teething toys, and bath toys are perfect to keep your baby occupied all year long!
