It's the most wonderful time of the year! If you're anything like me, you've planned ahead on bigger gifts but completely neglected stocking stuffers. 

We've pulled together our favorite small gifts for babies, toddlers, preschoolers, and school-age kiddos to make stuffing stockings a breeze.

Baby: Simple, high quality toys are best for babies - like baby's first wooden toy, colorful books that won't rip, and soft, squishy, or textured toys that will engage baby's senses.

Grimm's Mini Rolling Wheel

Wimmer Ferguson Sight & Sound Travel Toy


Bashful Bunny Soothers


Toddler: Toddlers love to push/pull, scoop/dump, and open/close. Plus, they're just starting pretend play. We've got cars with peg people, chunky Playmobil figures, magnetic rings and more.

Grimm's Convertibles

Plus-Plus BIG Tubes



Bilibo Mini Set

Playmobil 1.2.3 Figures

If I Were A... Books

 Tinker Rings


Preschooler: Preschoolers love to express themselves through play and creativity - think playsilks, animal figures, and art supplies. Plus, we highly recommend getting a Toniebox at this age for screen-free songs and stories. If a Toniebox is on your list for a bigger gift (or you already have one!) then Tonies make perfect stuffers.

Djeco Stickers

Lucent Cubes (20 pieces in a cardboard box)

School-Age Kid:Older kiddos have diverse interests and are ready for more complex toys and games. Pick from realistic animal figures, tiny adorable mice, a fun and fast family dice game, loose parts for small world play, and more. And yes, you'll see Tonies on the list again. Older kids love Tonies too! We particularly love the collections of tales and stories for older kids, like Rapunzel, Little Red Riding Hood, A Christmas Carol, and Pinocchio).
