20 Non-Candy Stocking Stuffers for Boys and Girls

Sharing is caring!

What a joy to see your kids’ excitement when opening their stockings and discovering the really cool thinks tucked inside! I’m not opposed to adding candy in the stockings but I think that children are exposed to so much sugar during the holiday season that we can just leave it out. If you are like me and love unique stocking stuffers that kids will actually enjoy and play with for a long time, you’ll want to save this list of 20 non-candy stocking stuffer ideas.

I actually created two lists, one for boys and another for girls. Although many of the items are the same on both lists, some may differ in color (blue walkie talkie for boys and pink walkie talkie for girls), character (finger printing art set: dinosaurs for boys and fairies for girls) or type ( craft item: monster tape for boys and rolling pin for girls).

Such great idea! I always love a stocking stuffer that's not lollies! I especially think my girls would love the Owl night light.

Such great ideas! We never put candy in our kids' stockings, so I'm always on the look out for great little gifts. These could also be used for Easter baskets too!

Opening stockings is one of our favorite traditions because Santa always leaves us some STEM type items too! Love the bells and fingerprint art kit!

This is great! Kids get too much candy between holiday parties, school events, activities. It's nice to have some non-candy treat ideas!
