22. For the Sweet Tooth: Their Favorite Candy

Continuing with the edible theme, candy is always a great stocking stuffer idea for kids, especially if your house limits access to candy. Place their favorite candy in the stocking, or purchase a special holiday-themed candy instead since, face it, we all love M&Ms, but we can agree that the classic red and green Christmas mix just hits differently every season.

23. For the Wild Child: Wild at Heart x Black and White Baby One-Piece

Don’t think toys are the only things you can toss in a baby’s stocking! They need plenty of onesies considering how many they go through in a day. The free-spirited baby will love this wild at heart onesie, and their parents will appreciate one more outfit to last them until laundry day.

24. For the Artist: Crayons and a Coloring Book

Encourage your kids to develop their inner Van Goghs (without the ear-cutting-off part, of course) by sticking a box of crayons and a coloring book in there.

Plus, odds are good someone’s going to need one by the end of the day, even if it’s just Mom or Dad as they try to get the toys out of the extra-secure packaging they come in these days.

27. For the Tiny Fashion Diva: Fashion Diva Cat Zipper Pouch

30. For the Picky Eater: Fresh Fruit

While there’s some debate about exactly why people started hiding oranges in stockings, people have been doing it for generations. There’s no reason to stick to the traditional orange if your picky eater prefers bananas or apples. Tuck that fruit in the stocking in the hope that something nutritious makes it into their bodies on Christmas Day (and maybe display the bowl of fruit on the counter just in case). If they don’t like it, it’s a great time for a lesson in “it’s the thought that counts.”

36. For the Nail Artist: Nail Polish

Celebrities like Harry Styles are proof that nail polish isn’t just for girls anymore. Its compact size and inexpensive price tag make it the perfect stocking stuffer year after year.

42. For the Makeup Artist: Makeup & Makeup Brushes

With the advent of the YouTube makeup tutorial, the cheap makeup and poor-quality tools we all used in middle school are no more.

A black button with illustrated flowers and the text “Use your voice”

Your dog will love sporting this stylish pet bandana so they can stand out amongst their four-legged friends at the dog park. They’ll be super popular with all the dogs, especially if it’s nestled in the stocking next to a delicious-smelling treat for a few days.

82. For the Good Boy or Girl: Treats

No matter your dog’s favorite treat, stick a new pack in their stocking this Christmas. Pro tip: Don’t put anything in their stocking until the day of. You’ll be surprised how high they can jump when they smell treats in the toe of a stocking!

If you’ve got a bone chewer, think beyond the chew toys and the bones this Christmas. Get them a fun bone-patterned pet bandana so everyone who meets them knows they’d rather be chewing on something delicious.

84. For the Dog with Sensitive Paws: Paw Balm

Many dogs suffer from allergies and dry skin, even in the winter. Hydrate their paws just like you do your own skin with natural paw balms from your local pet store or online.

Every family has its own stocking stuffer traditions, but keep the budget in mind since it can be easy to overspend on inexpensive items if you aren’t paying attention. Regardless of cost, your family is sure to love opening their stockings, and don’t be surprised if you hear that Santa sleighed at gifts this year. Plus, with every purchase, you’ll be supporting independent artists around the world, making their holiday season a bit brighter, too!
