Great Stocking Stuffer Surprises for Older Kids to Adults
Extensive guide for great stocking stuffers to delight older children through adults. I’ve done the compiling, you just choose!
Do you love the stocking stuffers? Do you leave these treasures for the end of your shopping?
And now you’re exhausted and perhaps a bit frustrated finding those perfect little treasures?
I get it! And I’ve got ya!
Because we don’t give traditional gifts anymore (read about our family gift exchange here), This is the only Christmas shopping I do and so I have a blast!
Not nearly as stressful as the under-the-tree gifts because there are no high expectations and no high investment.
While I was shopping for my family’s stockings, I compiled several lists of items I could share with you to make your stocking stuffer hunt easier.
Remember, less stress means more joy! And that’s my mission here!
I want to fill the stockings with more than fruit and candy. Some little surprises hand picked for each person. Although, sometimes, I buy things in packs and each kiddo receives one of the pack, they also have unique items.
For each stocking I try to find a personal care indulgence or travel size of something they’d enjoy trying, I try to find a fun gadget or “toy” in one of their interests: foodie, techie, etc. And then because I’m a huge advocate for exercising our creative muscles, everyone gets a “creativity” item.
I organized these lists by category. And keep in mind, I don’t have littles running around any more (or yet . . . sigh). So these are mainly adult-focused, but for the most part still very appropriate for teens. The prices are rounded and accurate at my writing. And everything here is available for 2-day shipping. But please don’t wait and chance that?!
