15 Fun Stocking Stuffers and Last Minute Gifts to Avoid the Last Minute Rush

The stockings are hung by the chimney with care but are they stuffed with treats and surprises yet? Nope? Good because we’ve got 15 excellent stocking stuffers, starting at just $5 each and they’re perfect for kids of all ages!

Stocking stuffers aren’t meant to be massive or expensive. It’s all about the little items that can fit in their stocking and that add a little extra special something to their Christmas loot. Think choccies, lollies, keyrings, lip gloss, makeup, mini figurines or collectables. Perhaps even notepads, gel pens, mini LEGO sets, playdough, nail polish,, fidget toys, playing cards and Rubix cubes.
