65+ Stocking Stuffers Under $10 that your Kids will actually use- A Comprehensive List

We love it when you share!

In 2017, my mom made the most adorable, personalized stockings for my family. I hung them next to our wood stove in great anticipation of the next year when I would have a little boy to fill them for. That is what inspired this list of stocking stuffers under $10. The next year came, and despite my baby being so young, I was eager for Christmas morning and watching him open…errr…correction, chew open his stocking. But as I filled his stocking and came to the realization that there are few stocking stuffers for kids that are inexpensive, and children will use them after opening their stockings.

I don’t know about you, but I have spent some serious dough trying to find teethers that my baby likes! All those teeth coming is tough work! I love how easy these are to grasp and all the textures.
