One thing I used to LOVE about Christmas was stocking stuffers.

While my hubby and I don’t usually make a big deal out of stocking stuffers for ourselves, I do believe that this would be a nice alternative to giving each other traditional Christmas gifts this year.

I’m also on the hunt for some good, cheap stocking stuffers for my kids that don’t involve me having to leave this house.

Since I have some Amazon gift cards saved up from all of my survey taking efforts, I figured it would be time well spent searching high and low for stocking stuffers for the kids.

Of course, being in good spirit, I’ll share my findings with you all so you can begin your own frugal Christmas tradition.

If you haven’t started taking surveys for Amazon gift cards, it’s never too late to start. If you start now, you’ll be ahead of the game for next Christmas and kid’s parties and such.

You can also refer friends using Swagbucks and earn some passive swagbucks that way too. I’ve accumulated over $25 in the last two months just from referrals! Sign up for Swagbucks here!

Wrapping Thangs Up

Like I said, I was looking for stocking stuffers that weren’t going to cost a lot because I didn’t want to pay a lot out of pocket. That’s why I diligently take surveys throughout the year so I can spend as little as my money as possible.

It may not seems like it adds up, but it really does. Your kids won’t know the difference, that their toys are inexpensive. However, I guarantee your bank account will know the difference.

Choose items that are add-ons, low costs to ship, and make sure they will ship in time for your to receive them by Christmas. If you have household items or other stuff you need, get it while you’re on there to take advantage of free shipping.

If none of these toys interest your kids, check out a few of the financially smart toys I recommended in this post. Or you can do some digging yourself, get creative, and find things that will be perfect for your kids.


Have you finished Christmas shopping yet? Do you do stocking stuffers for your kiddos?

    We do stocking stuffers! Love your Amazon ideas (I like the emoji pillow!). I admit, it’s hard to find small items for teens, so I typically just put special treats, like candy or a soda in their stockings .

      Yeah, they can be a little more difficult to shop for. My daughter is six so she likes those lip glosses and smell good lotions and such. Hopefully, she will stick with that well into her teenage years!

    These are cute little gift ideas for cheap. I can’t with the poop emoji pillow though. I’ve been seeing this thang everywhere!

    • Latoya Scott November 28, 2016 at 9:56 pm

      Lol! Me too…they seem to love it though, lol!

    We are not having xmas this year because I’m taking my daughter to Costa Rica so she had the choice of gifts or a trip and she chose wisely so I might get a few outfits to hold over for school but that’s it

  • Ty November 29, 2016 at 2:29 pm

    I don’t have any children but I know my younger sibling would love these stuffers!

  • Thirty30Courtney November 29, 2016 at 4:38 pm

    I always loved my stockings! They were simple but there were so many cute little goodies in them. This makes me want to make some for my coworkers.

    • Latoya Scott November 29, 2016 at 4:59 pm

      That’s a cute idea!

  • Kirstin Fuller November 29, 2016 at 11:24 pm

    I love stocking stuffers!! These are great and the prices are amazing. I’m going to order the emoji poop pillow and the pink rabbit fur ball for myself. lol

    I like stocking stuffers, but tend to go for things like craft supplies (glitter pens, gluesticks), candy and dollar store treats (glowsticks, bead necklaces). And we do grown up stocking stuffers too, but a bottle of wine fits nicely.

      Oooh, wine is a good idea for mine! Lol:)

  • Nay November 30, 2016 at 4:18 pm

    I love stocking stuffers. I do it every year and I fill it up with candy, hand sanitizer, socks …etc. I think its a great addition because we don’t do a lot of gifts

    • Latoya Scott November 30, 2016 at 10:46 pm

      Yes, practical items are great stocking stuffers.
