A Pocket Etch A Sketch is an awesome retro stocking stuffer idea.
Kids will love fidgeting with this toy from past generations.
It can keep them entertained for hours.
And it’s such a great nostalgic gift, that you could even give it to a friend as a quirky gift in a fun Secret Santa exchange.
Get these 16 Mini Scratch Art Boards with wooden stylus for kids who love drawing and coloring.
Personally, I love to stock up on arts and crafts supplies at Christmas so they have lots to keep themselves busy during the winter months.
These scratch pads are great for long car rides or waits in waiting rooms.
SmartGames Cube Puzzler
One of our favorite stocking stuffer ideas for kids is a puzzle or brain teaser.
Kids of all ages will love this 3D colorful cube puzzle with 80 different challenges ranging from easy to expert.
This portable game is travel-friendly so it’s perfect to toss in your bag for road trips and other vacations.

Mini 3×3 Puzzle Cube
A classic toy just smaller – Mini 3×3 Puzzle Cubes!
These small toys are perfect for stocking stuffer ideas.
And stocking stuffer ideas for families with lots of kids are the best when you can buy them in a bundle. These come with 6 in a pack, so they’d also be great if you were making gift bags for a Christmas party or friends from school.
Scramble and twist, turn, and rotate to solve the puzzle.
Trouble Grab & Go Game
A classic board game that is compact and mobile!
All in one game board makes storage easy.
This Trouble Grab & Go is a complete compact version of the original game.
I love to give my kids physical games that will pull them away from their electronic devices.
We think classic board games are always a great gift idea.
Joke Book for Kids
The Big Book of Silly Jokes for Kids: 800+ Jokes! will keep the whole family laughing.
This is an awesome stocking stuffer gift idea to get reluctant readers reading. It can feel like less work to read a few jokes than embark on a new chapter book.
Joke books are fun for road trips or evenings at home with the family.
I love that this collection is illustrated collection and the jokes get more challenging with each chapter.
The author of this book, Carole P. Roman, has written over 50 children’s books. You can find them all here on Amazon.
Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Teens
Here’s another classic winter gift idea that’s got to be on any complete list of stocking stuffer ideas… Earmuffs!
Kids and teenagers will love cute and cozy earmuffs.
We love giving our kids and teens fun and practical gifts that they will actually use.
So top off their stocking with a pair of cute earmuffs to help keep your kids warm.
Scrunchies are the perfect stocking stuffer for tween and teenage girls!
Grab this set of pretty scrunchies for a super low price.
The colors and fabric are soft and subtle and lovely to wear on your wrist or in your hair.

Cute Flash Drive
Share digital files and photos with friends and loved ones with this Unicorn USB Flash Drive.
I have to get these for my girls.
They will love them!
There are so many fun styles of flash drives available these days.
If you have boys and they aren’t into unicorns, perhaps they’d like these cool Minion Flash Drives.
These days kids have to take homework to and from school on flash drives, so this makes homework even more fun.
A brilliant gift idea for tweens, teens, and adults is a password book keeper to help them stay organized.
I especially love the idea of getting your kids to write down all their passwords in a book that you can see so that you’re able to access any of their accounts.
If you get kids started sharing their account passwords with you at a young age, it’s easier to keep it going into their teen years.
Also, the journals, calendars, pill boxes from RE-Focus, The Creative Office are perfect for affordable and practical gifts especially for boys or girls with ADHD.
Get them this fun pair of socks that lets them express themselves.
It may drive you crazy that your teen spends too much time gaming, but this gift is a good natured way to make light of it.

Luxury Natural Soap
A lovely little gift for women is a bar of natural soap.

Another fantastic place to get comfy leggings is MyLala leggings.
You can get super soft leggings in regular and plus women’s sizes as well as babies, kids, and teens.

Rugged Roots Beard Oil is made of Premium Natural Oils and comes in 7 different scents.
This is truly a unique and thoughtful gift for any man with a beard.
Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Everyone
An ideal stocking stuffer for everyone in the family is a new ornament. We love painting ornaments and making DIY photo ornaments, but you can also purchase beautiful personalized Christmas ornaments.
You’ll love these sweet sterling silver ornaments from The Vintage Pearl. They are handmade with love and will no doubt become treasured family heirlooms.
There’s a huge selection of styles for everyone in your family.
You can customize each ornament to create meaningful stocking stuffers for all your loved ones.
Warm cozy socks are always a great stocking stuffer for everyone. A list of stocking stuffer ideas couldn’t be complete without this classic gift idea.
We found these super cute Christmas fuzzy socks on Amazon.
They have several holiday designs to choose from.
These socks have 2% spandex and come with a premium quality gift box.
Everyone can use a new charging cable… especially one that doesn’t get tangled.
This is one of those modern stocking stuffer ideas that works for almost everybody over 8 years old!
Ventev Alloy Apple Lightning Cables are both stylish and functional. Because of the aluminum casing, these cables don’t tangle or rip. We’ve been using ours for a couple of years without any problems.
Charging cables are fantastic stocking stuffers for tweens, teens and everyone else who needs to keep a device charged.
PopSockets are expanding smartphone and tablet stands that are all the rage with the kids, but they’re useful for everyone.
PopSockets are great for enhancing the grip and capabilities of your phone. Pop, tilt, wrap, prop, collapse, grip, repeat.
They provide a secure grip for texting, calling, photos, and selfies and they’re compatible with all smartphones and tablets.
Works in landscape and portrait modes for watching videos, web surfing, texting, gaming, group photos, FaceTime, and Skype.
Using a PopSocket allows your hand to relax while securely holding your phone – never drop your phone again from lost grip.
These are available in a good variety of colors & designs.
Everyone who drives needs a Dashboard Car Phone Mount. This is one of those small stocking stuffer ideas that can really serve a good purpose.
It’s so important that you’re not picking up your phone while you’re driving.
So if you have a driver in the family who doesn’t yet have a cell phone holder, toss a universal magnetic cell phone car holder in their stocking.
This one is on sale on Amazon right now for only $5.51 and free shipping with Prime.
Toss a bag of loose leaf tea and a tea infuser in his or her stocking.
Brewing a cup of loose leaf tea is simple with an individual Tea Infuser.
When you’re just making tea for one, you’ll love having one of these.
Take a moment just for you with the infuser that’s made for one. If you’re looking for unique stocking stuffer ideas for adults, a classy tea infuser will do the trick.
Holiday Lip Balm
You can never have enough lip balm.
I always put a lip balm in every Christmas stocking. I think it’s one of the easiest small stocking stuffer ideas… you can grab them at the last minute at the grocery store.
And I love how these Holiday flavored Chapstick come in festive flavours: Cake Batter, Pumpkin Pie, and Candy Cane.
What a sweet way to keep dry lips at bay this winter.
