Got a great stocking stuffer idea that I left out?
Let me know in the comments!


  1. These are all excellent stocking stuffers! I can't think of anything else I'd add to this list. Neither can my boys considering I just asked them and everything they've mentioned has already been added to the list.

  2. I love how you break it down by age category. We get enough candy during the holidays and Halloween from others so I don't like adding it to their stockings too! party favors are always good too. When my kids go to a party, I'll save some of the toys either to fill pinatas or goody bags later or for stockings.

  3. That's a great list. Love the age categories as I have older kids as well and it can be tough choosing things for them. We aren't doing Christmas this year but some of these things are great for parties as well. :)

  4. Great list! We always get new toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, socks, etc. I'm pinning!

  5. this is right up my alley and just what I needed with 4 boys in my house!

  6. This is a great list! It is crunch time and with me just publishing my book. Christmas will be even more of a crunch time. I will be wrapping all presents on Monday. This should be fun!

  7. It is an awesome list. I will pin it. Thanks for sharing...

  8. What a great list! Pinning for next year!

  9. football gloves to catch the football better.


Happy to have you here at the Zucchini Summer Blog! :)
