The countdown is on to Christmas and I’m ready! Kind of. Not really. Almost! How are you feeling? As far as gifts go, I’m pretty set on that and that feels good. Now I’m focusing on stocking stuffers. I’m typically someone who waits until a few days (or two or one) before Christmas to grab stocking stuffers. The days leading up to Christmas I will be enjoying all the Christmas movies and not the stress of shopping for last minute gifts. Today I’ve rounded up lots of fun finds to create the Ultimate Stocking Stuffer Guide for everyone on your list.
Sometimes you can overthink stocking stuffers. To me, the perfect stocking is filled with small items I like, something I need, a favorite treat or two and a gift card (or two!). And that’s what I like to keep in mind when shopping for stocking stuffers for my family.
Also it’s important to remember the size of the stocking. I’ve had years where my stocking stuffers couldn’t even fit the stocking!

TWEEN STOCKING STUFFER IDEAS
Stocking stuffers for tween girls are similar to what I would get a teen girl with maybe less emphasis on makeup. So hair accessories, nail polish, jewelry…those are all safe bets.

The tween boy is for me, harder to shop for than the tween girl. Let’s be real. They’re both hard to shop for! I like to focus on tech accessories, like bluetooth speakers, charging cords, and ear buds. And combine it with the practical like Carmex. Because it’s winter.
I’ve also found that if you get socks with their favorite show/character on them, it’s a win.
