Great Stocking Stuffer Ideas

By Isabel Kallman

Stocking stuffers are awesome and very important. They are usually the first thing you open when you awaken on Christmas morning.
We’ve been collecting ideas all year and here are some of our favorites:
Talking Label Maker


We loved making labels as youngsters. We still get a kick out of organizing stuff. What better way to tell people, M-I-N-E. This label maker spells out the letters aloud as you emboss them.
I Spy Bags

We’ve already professed our love for the personalized I Spy Bags. But check out all the wonderful themes available that would make for great stocking stuffers.
Pop Art Camera


Kids love cameras. Granted this one is old-fashioned and takes 35mm film (consider it a history lesson for your young one), but it produces 4 pictures in the span of one second and preserves them in 4 different colors on one single print. It’s the Pop Art Camera.
Crayon Rocks

Just like not all cameras are digital, not all crayons resemble shortened pencils. And that is enough reason for us to justify buying crayon rocks. Plus, the pebble shape crayons “allow small fingers to color on large, wide strokes, promoting confidence in creating art.” That sounds good to us. And, SouleMama really likes them, too.
Charlie & Lola figurines

We have professed our undying love for Charlie & Lola before. And luckily for us, the availability of their merchandise continues to grow. We hope this duo become as wealthy as the Olsen twins. We love these figurines and there are playing card sets as well at Pink Milk, the Charlie & Lola shop.
Monchichi Monkeys


Also from our archives is the Monchichi Monkey. So, adorable and a blast from our own pasts.

    I love this list — I haven’t seen a single item listed here on any other blog! (And I’m embarrassed to admit, but I want the Charlie & Lola figures for myself!) The crayon rocks are neat too.
    Thanks, and Happy Holidays!

    I love the Monchichi Dolls! I had one as a kid… I am thinking of ordering them as a gift for my stepmother whom I adore! Her first Christmas with my father this was hte gift I asekd for and she walked her legs off running from toystore to toystore to find one for me…. and I think she would get a kick out of seeing them again! Or a horrible flashback… but she could set them aside and save them for my baby that was just born to play with as he grows up and spends time with his special grandmother whom has adored him from the moment she found out he was on his way into this world!
