The last thing on my Christmas shopping list is always the stocking stuffers. As a child, I remember waking up VERY early Christmas morning and knowing that it was ok to go through our stockings before waking up mom and dad. Smart move mom. It gave her some extra time to sleep in! For that reason, I try to make sure my kids’ stockings are full of fun things to do. With a little help from the Walgreens holiday gift guide, I was able to find the perfect stocking stuffers for my kids.
The closest store to us is Walgreens, so you know I shop there a lot. I was pleased to find their toy aisle fully stocked with a really great selection of toys. I picked up the Walgreens Happy and Healthy Holiday Guide at the front of the store and used it to get some really great gifts for the kids’ stockings.
The guide is full of gift ideas for everyone on your list. They give you examples of unique gift pairings and personal touches that you can add to gifts and decor.
I’m excited to show you what I got! Evan (who is six) is getting a Super Mario Plush, a Ninja Turtle action figure, a Nerf gun, an activity book, a fun jingle bell pen, and a Reese’s cane. I had to take the bigger stuff out of the boxes to fit them in the stocking. I know he is going to be so excited!
I gotta say, Audrey (age 4) is the funnest to shop for. I got her a My Little Pony to snuggle, a cute kitty hat, a cool Disney lip balm bracelet, a new brush, some hair bands in the shape of a lollipop, an activity book, a jingle tree pen, and a Reese’s cane.
Little Leah isn’t quite two yet, so she would probably be happy if I just let her play with the stocking. She loves her stuffed animals though, so she’s getting this cute little Beanie Boo. She’s also getting some new bath toys, a flashing spiky ball, and an activity book to scribble in. In place of a Reese’s cane, I got her some Gerber Yogurt Melts. She will think those are even better than candy!
I gave each of the stockings a little personal touch by adding an ornament of their favorite candy to each one. There is candy inside each of them!
We don’t have a fireplace to hang stockings on (sad but true). Instead we hang them all up on the wall grille.
I can’t wait for Christmas morning! I think I am more excited than the kids!
