Small Gifts and Stocking Stuffers

I’m constantly looking for small gifts that work for an Advent Countdown or Tooth Fairy. I like little toys that can be collected or stored together, especially toys that have a classic or vintage feel. I also don’t want things my kids will play for five minutes and quickly end up in the garbage. I keep a stash of these types of toys and prizes in my closet and am surprised how often they save me in a pinch. (On top of a birthday present, as a reward to honor a special day, and I’ve even wrapped several of them up as a big present–when I forgot to buy a birthday gift for their friend’s birthday party.) They are usually inexpensive and come in multiples so the key is to buy a stash then keep them hidden and locked up so they feel like a new surprise. Since we’re heading into the holiday season I thought I would do a round up. (Candy is easy to add so I kept this round up to strictly non-food items.) Click on each item below for the post or see these ideas and more in our OHD Stocking Stuffer section.

    These are such fun ideas! I could think of a person to give each of these stocking stuffers! Some of your ideas remind me of vintage games my Grandfather would play with me as a child!

    My favourite has to be the Pizza Puzzle! I can see it now – Doing a pizza puzzle while eating pizza!! Perfect!!
