Don’t be that person shopping on Christmas Eve frantically grabbing whatever’s shiny and closest to you in the end cap. I’ve been that person, it’s depressing when you’re shopping AND when they’re opening the presents. Pick something from the all-ages family friendly stocking stuffers list below – they’ll be a hit.

We come from a family that LOVES giving Christmas gifts and always passes around a stocking stuffed to the gills on Christmas morning. As always, we most ardently wish to give and receive gifts that will help out in a pinch, amuse, entertain, or please for hours and weeks on end. The saddest gift is one that falls flat because it’s only good for one use, or it’s some generic grabbed in a last-minute buying panic.
