Do you need some Christmas stocking stuffer ideas for your family? Here are my favorite idea for under $10 each!
Christmas stockings are a hoot but they can get pretty expensive if you fill them with small but pricey items. My favorite place for stocking stuffers is the dollar tree.
For older kids I do love to include lots of chocolate and then some of the smaller things as well, but for toddlers it gets tricky because many dollar store toys are not safe for them. Not to mention toddler toys are often so big that they simply cannot fit into a stocking.

Other Items to Consider For A Toddler Stocking
If you have a chance to get to the dollar store, here are some things I would grab for a toddler stocking there:
- Baby toothpaste
- Baby Board books
- Bath Toys
- Busy Books
I would highly avoid purchasing anything that has parts and pieces to it, especially from the dollar store because that’s a chocking hazard.
Otherwise, any toys that are a single piece, and are a safe option for a baby would fit nicely into a stocking are a good idea.
