10 of the best stocking filler ideas for kids – keep it simple with our guide to what kids really want in their Christmas stocking.
Kids just love Haribo – grab yourself a Haribo star Christmas tree decoration or Haribo Christmas cracker filled with sweets and stuff it in the stockings. You can pick these up from around £1 from supermarkets and shops like Superdrug, B&M Bargains.
We love this little card game – Top Trumps comes in loads of different versions and is a game you can play anywhere. Priced around £5.
LEGO Mini Figures
Always super popular and again come in loads of different varieties – pick up a bag at the supermarket or Amazon for around £3.50
Pack of Sharpies
Just cannot go wrong with a pack of Sharpies – totally the best felt tip pens – we like the metallic pack as a stocking filler which you can pick up for around £6
We quite like the mini Rubiks cube as a stocking filler – available from around £6 it’s perfect for slipping in a Christmas stocking.
Ahhh kids never get bored of these temporary tattoos, they just love them! You can pick these up from as little as around £1.
Roald Dahl Book
All kids need a little Roald Dahl in their lives – any book from his kids collection would be perfect slipped inside a stocking – for younger kids try George’s Marvellous Medicine or Fantastic Mr Fox – books are available for around £5.
Kids Spy Glasses
My kids love these – little sunglasses with secret mirrors on the edge so they can see behind them, fun and perfect for stockings – you can pick these up for around £2 in toy shops.
Perfect for curious kids, they’ll literally spend hours closely examining STUFF and when they’re not doing that they’ll generally wander around holding it over one eye so they have one massive eye. Pick these up for around £3-4 . Money well spent I think
It just wouldn’t be Christmas without a whoopee cushion in the stocking, ahhhh spending the day slipping a farting cushion under a unsuspecting relative and throwing self around laughing – kids LOVE them. You can get these for around £1-2.
