  1. what a great listing! thanks for sharing! my mind gets so boggled just trying to think of normal gifts that stocking gift lists are impossible to create.

    so this is a great list because i won’t be so apt to buy my crutch purchases of 4 kids = 4 like giftsl

  2. My daughter is 9-years-old and has Autism. Books are a favourite stocking stuffer, so are the foam art kits from Walmart or other craft stores. She loves using the stickers to create new projects!

    I also go to the dollar store, and buy small plastic containers for her sequins and glitter. Popsicle sticks are another great addition.

  3. This is the best list of stocking stuffer ideas that I’ve ever encountered! We usually add a few fun gadgets to each person stocking in our house, something rather unusual. Last year I got my wife a baby Groot planter, which she adores. Score one for me!
