Can you believe it is already Christmas time? This year has gone by in a blink of an eye. I have already started shopping and wrapping the kid’s gifts. This year I feel ahead of the game but I know that won’t last. So excuse me while I tackle the next thing on my list. Frugal stocking stuffers.
Frugal Stocking Stuffers
One great way to fill stockings is with free samples. These cost you nothing but make a great stuffer for teens, kids in sports, or people that travel. There are even freebies perfect for kids! Check out our new freebies section to find some samples you can order now.
Small figurines like Shopkins make great stocking stuffers and kids seem to adore them right now.
You teen would love a portable charging pack.
Art supplies is great for filling stockings and if you planned right you already have a ton stored away from Back to School shopping.
Kids are always losing gloves making them a great stocking stuffer choice.
What is on my frugal stocking stuffer list?
Every year I like to grab the kids fresh personal care items they need like hairbrushes, toothbrushes, hand sanitizer, and chapsticks. I save money by buying these items in multi-packs that give me enough for each child.
This year my son requested a watch for Christmas so I am grabbing him one for his stocking. This means I will need more watches so the girls leave him alone.
I grabbed extra boxes of crayons during the back to school sale so each child will be getting new crayons, pencils, and the like for school.
I like to sneak in some snacks to help keep the kids from whining while they wait for Christmas dinner. Beef jerky sticks and Cliff kids bars are the perfect addition to stockings and as usual, we always pack an orange.
Truly frugal stocking stuffers are not the cheapest items you find but the most useful for a good price.
