Stocking Stuffer Ideas For Your Spouse
Maybe you fill a stocking for your spouse. We do usually add something small for each other, often a hand-written letter and maybe a little trinket. Here are some great gifts to give to your spouse (and they don’t even need to cost much, you know, if you have a rule not to spend too much on each other.).
328. Coupons for date night activities (Check out my list of date night activities!)
329. Coupons for housework (i.e. Guys give coupons where they’d wash the dishes, ladies give coupons where hey’d take out the trash, vice versa…whatever works for your house.)
330. Dinner and a movie
331. Find a babysitter and plan a very special night, then announce as a note in the stocking
333. Check off something on your spouse’s bucket list or “I’ve always wanted” list…horseback riding lessons, swimming with dolphins, deep sea fishing, family ancestry records, trip to Paris, locate a hard-to-find item from his/her childhood, sign up for an art class
334. Hand-written letter
335. Massage certificate
Stocking Stuffer Ideas For Fun
Not just toys, folks. Some of these are a little bit odd, but the kids love them!
336. Bubble wrap
337. Tissue paper
339. Beanie Babies (My kids actually love these.)
340. Doll house accessories and peg dolls
341. Pet supplies to announce getting a new pet
342. Balloons/balloon animal kit
343. Glow sticks
344. Flowers in a vase (Ditch the water for now and just wrap the stems in a damp towel.)
345. Off-brand Yeti cup (Yeti cups are okay, too, but they cost more and the off-brand works awesome!)
346. Small building blocks
347. Glow-in-the-dark stars for the ceiling
348. Name a star (Great for young kids who are outer space-obsessed.)
349. Plastic toy animals (We love toys that don’t make noises and leave space for the imagination.)
350. Spinning tops
351. Thinking Putty
353. Bean bags or play snowballs to toss (Re-use the stocking as a basket–attach a ring around the top to keep it opened.)
Stocking Stuffer Ideas Other
These are other great stocking stuffers that are often included in stockings, gifted around the holidays, or just something needed but often forgotten (ahem, batteries).
355. Money or gift cards
In the end, it really doesn’t matter what you give your children in their stockings. What they truly just want is time with you. Take advantage of the holiday to accomplish that and do something special with them. Don’t stress the gifts. Hopefully this list has helped you get some thoughtful ideas for your children so you can spend more time having fun with them and less time preparing for the day.
