It’s that time of year again, and one of my favorite Christmas traditions is putting together stockings. I don’t know about you, but I hate buying things that aren’t practical or cheap. I’ve been known to throw things away fairly quickly. I’m talking about within a day or two of receiving the item especially if it isn’t well made. That’s why when filling stockings, I like to include practical items that I know my kids either need or will use for years to come. After all, I don’t like to purposely waste money.
So if you’re planning to put together a stocking for your little ones and you need quality stocking stuffers for toddlers, this list will help you get stuff that they will actually love and use.
Do you need to do Christmas stockings?
First things first. You do not need to do Christmas stockings for your kids, spouse, yourself, or anyone else. These aren’t necessary at all. Stockings are just a little something extra that I enjoy doing. I always include practical items that I planned to purchase anyway, but giving them in a stocking just makes it more fun and exciting.
Also, I know there’s a lot of chatter on who should gift the stocking. Should the Christmas stockings be from Santa (if you believe) or should they be from the parents? Honestly, there is no right or wrong answer. Do what you feel is best.

Flashcards are great for toddlers because they help create awareness of the world around them. I love these mudpuppy flashcards because they are on a ring, which helps keep them organized.
We all know just how much toddlers love to walk (and run) around. To help prevent any falls or injuries, it’s best that they wear socks or booties with grips to keep them from slipping and sliding. These festive Zutano Organic Cotton Baby Booties will help get the job done.
I don’t think it gets any more practical than a toothbrush and toothpaste bundle. The Hello bundle will help your toddler develop great brushing habits that will benefit them later in life.
Toddlers love painting, but they love getting messy and putting everything in their mouths even more. Why not let them have fun with these colorful and edible-safe veggie paints from Veggie Baby.
Honeysticks beeswax crayons are the safest for our littles. They are made using 100% pure New Zealand Beeswax and food-grade pigments for color. They are completely non-toxic and free from paraffin wax and the chemical nasties you find in many other Crayons.
I absolutely love cuddle+kind dolls. These beautiful dolls are hand-knit, and for each doll sold, 10 meals are donated to children in need.
Summer may be over, but it’s never the right time to drop the sunscreen. Keep your littles skin protected year-round with this thinkbaby & face sunscreen. It’s so easy to apply and EWG certified. Not only is it safe for our littles, but it’s safe for the environment as well.
Little Tikes Foam Letters & Numbers make learning fun. Not only will your toddler love the way these look and feel, but they are so easy to take in the car, use around the house, to the grandparent’s house, or even in the bathtub. They are sure to keep your little one entertained and learning for hours.

Stacking toys help develop the mind and brain starting around six months. These mushie stacking cups are a great color scheme and the perfect gender-neutral educational toy for growing babies. They not only help with fine motor skills, but they include holes for water and bath play as well.
