Non-Candy Stocking Stuffers for Toddlers

by Ivy B

If you thought shopping for gifts for toddlers was even slightly difficult, brainstorming stocking stuffers for toddlers that aren’t all candy was even more so.  For me at least.  Here’s a nice list of toddler stocking stuffers sure to please!

My oldest is 6, so it’s been a while since I’ve had to think about having a toddler-friendly Christmas.  I pulled out our toddler felt Christmas Tree for the first time in about 4 years.  Honestly, I almost forgot we had it and it took me a while to remember where I even stored it.

Now, my kids really don’t need a single thing, so it was tough coming up with a holiday gift guide for toddlers that didn’t already include everything we already had.  My son may just get gypped this year for Christmas except that we, luckily, decided to stick to the 4-gift challenge this year.  Not to mention, he’s a lucky kid with a December birthday, so he gets ripped off anyway.  But, I found some ideas, including those off our non-toy gift ideas for toddlers and some of the most loved toddler toys.

Seriously though, how difficult is it to stuff stockings for toddlers?  Am I the only one that struggled with stocking stuffer ideas for toddlers that was anything other than candy or snacks?  I’ve got the obligatory candy cane and some kind of chocolate, but I did not want to load him up on junk.
