Every single year the children wake up to a stocking on Christmas morning. It’s always full of age appropriate trinkets and little odds and sods to keep them amused until I’m awake enough for the main presents. However, they’ve both reached an age that is tricky to buy for. This year I struggled to think of a main present to get them for Christmas, never mind stocking fillers. That’s why I’ve come up with a list of fantastic stocking fillers for older kids.
Stocking fillers are typically low cost items, but it seems that the older my children get, the more expensive they become! Our income is limited, and at Christmas our budget is even tighter than usual. However, I don’t let that stop me from striving to give them both a fantastic Christmas, albeit budget-friendly.
Below you’ll find a whole host of suggestions for stocking fillers for older kids. All of the items listed below are sure to be a hit with children aged 6 and above.
Stocking fillers for older kids –
- Temporary Tattoos (aff)
- Sensory/fidget toys (aff)
- Novelty toys (aff)
- Stationary is always a hit, if your children are anything like mine then gel pens and suchlike are always a hit. I love the look of these invisible ink pens (aff).
- Socks aren’t the most exciting gift, but they are great for bulking out a stocking. Fun socks like these Boys Days Of The Week socks (aff) or these Do Not Disturb, I’m Gaming (aff) socks will be much appreciated.
- Keyrings (aff).
- Craft activities such as scratch art (aff).
- Slime (aff).
- Fun wristbands (aff) or novelty jewellery.
- Squishies (aff) – great for stress relief.
- Zimpli Kids Gelli Baff (aff) and other Zimpli Kids products.
