Stocking Stuffers for the Entire Family
You can’t have a holiday gift guide and not feature a section for Stocking Stuffers. Even without a fireplace I hang (or I should say tape) stockings for our family each year. I usually fill it with smaller gifts that I don’t want to wrap and some candy. Here’s some great stocking stuffers for the entire family. The companies mentioned below provided me samples for review and inclusion in my Holiday Gift Guide.
When I decided to make a guide for stocking stuffers I wasn’t sure where to start on some of the items and others I knew immediately would be a great fit. Since in our house it’s my husband, the kids and myself I’ll break it down in three categories. Check them out and I hope you find some ideas for you and your family on the list.
Stocking Stuffers for Kids
These cute earbuds are great for stocking stuffers. If you’re looking for great add on gifts this is a great option. Many kids are adding tablets to their wish lists including mines so adding these earbuds helps me make a total gift package for my daughter. These also feature volume control technology so your child can listen to music without having to worry about damaging their ear drums. I love how Pinkie Pie is decorated on the earbuds so when in use you can see her. These have a MSRP of $9.99. You can purchase these at Toys R Us.
This Littlest Pet Shop Wild Card Game this is going be a great stocking stuffer or in a Christmas Eve box available from Winning Moves Games. Perfect for kids to play during any game night especially if they’re fans of Littlest Pet Shop. Winning Moves Games also has a Transformers Wild Card Game which could be perfect for any Transformers fans. Plus you don’t have to let the fun stop at just those games. Winning Moves Games has lots of great options for games for the entire family, so if you’re looking to update your game collection check out Winning Moves.
The new Ready Go Brushes are perfect for helping kids fight off cavities and help them maintain healthy dental habits. The brushes are specially created with a light up system to encourage kids to brush for the recommended two minutes.

They come in lots of different characters so there’s something for all kids. The Ready Go Brush comes in favorite characters like Barbie, Spider Man, Angry Birds, Hello Kitty or original FireFly.

I couldn’t make this guide without including Rolli Stamps. They are the perfect stocking stuffer for kids and adults. It’s a stamper that isn’t messy at all. They offer different designs so you can also gift them for other occasions as well. You can read my review of Rolli and see how we liked them. These are the ultimate stationery must-have, incorporating a one-of-a-kind design into every scrapbook project, holiday letters, notes, wrapping paper and more – they can even be used to decorate clothing items! Custom stationery aficionados are also starting to take note of how versatile the Rolli™ stamps can be in creating unique stationery – and this segment is proving to be one of the strongest purchasers of the product. The self-inking stamps come in 18 different styles, and are available in many retail outlets, including Paper Source, as well as on www.funnyboneproducts.com. They retail for $9.99.
My daughter loves My Little Pony Equestria Girls so I had to add this to the list. The brand new feature film in the popular My Little Pony series. Following a theatrical run in the fall of 2014, where the film opened with enthusiastic reviews to packed crowds in over 400 theaters, My Little Pony Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks is available for purchase in the U.S. and Canada from Shout!

On a recent dinner at Medieval Times my son spotted some Knights & Dragons Toobs for sale in the court yard. We didn’t get any that night but I promised I would get some for the holidays. Safari Ltd has lots of figurines for fans of all ages. They have dinosaurs, fantasy characters, safari animals and so much more. Not only is it fun it’s educational and these Toobs are great stocking stuffers. We received the Knights & Dragons Toob and a Dinosaurs Toob for inclusion in our guide.

Kids Preferred sent us a set of the Eric Carle “Little Musician” Maracas for inclusion in our holiday gift guide. I already have these on our Gift Ideas for Babies, Infants and Toddlers. Of course they are also great for stocking stuffers as well. I can’t wait for our little guy to get his, he’ll be making music all day long. Perfect for the holiday season.
Another great item from Kids Preferred and also on the guide for babies, infants and toddlers is the Mickey Mouse & Friends Holiday Minnie Mouse. In our house you can’t have Christmas without Disney and Minnie would be the prefect topper for any stocking. Just pop her in at the top, and she can keep an eye on things while she waits for your child to play with her on Christmas. This is one stocking stuffer that’s sure to make any child happy.
Moffett Watch would be a great addition to older kids stockings. They are fun and fruity with a scented dial, you can choose your child’s favorite fruit scent.

Read my review of Moffett Watch and see why it’s a fun addition to holiday stockings.
From the World of Zhu it’s the Amazing Zhus, this stunt pet is just a part of the whole magic show. While they don’t perform magic they are good at disappearing. My kids had the opportunity to try out The Happy’s from Cepia, LLC, so when the commercials for The Amazing Zhus came out they wanted them. This is a great stocking stuffer and must have addition to the set. I’ll be sharing more about these pets soon.

Teens are always on their phones. It’s like those things are connected to their hands, at least that’s how my younger sister is. She’s always running out of power on her phone. With PowerSkin Pop’n 2 Power Pak, they won’t run out of power again. I had the opportunity to test one of these with my iPhone 5c and I can honestly say it’s one of the best portable chargers I have ever used. You just attach it to the back of your phone and use the grey attachment to connect the charger to the phone. Forget about it until it’s time to give your phone some charge. When you’re ready to charge just turn it on. Mines charged my phone fully three times before needing to recharge. Perfect for teens.

Stocking Stuffers for Him
My husband has stinky feet, we had the opportunity to review Toe Juice in the past and it worked wonders for him. He loved it so much that’s he’s been recommending it to people at his job all the time. Toe Juice recently introduced a toner for the body and I wanted to give it a try. Be sure to look for that review next week.
The Happy Chef is a uniform company for those in the food service industry. They have very affordable options for all kinds of chef clothing and other uniforms as well. For the foodie or home chef in your life, check out Happy Chef for not only their uniforms but for their t-shirts as well. I got this For the Love of Cow shirt for my hubby, because he just love a good steak and he loves grilling. Next time he hits the grill he’ll be wearing this shirt.
Trident Case has the prefect case to keep your phones safe and secure at all time. The Kraken A.M.S case is built to be strong and tough, so you don’t have to worry about your phone if it takes a tumble. This is a great gift for the men in your life. My husband never think about protecting his phones and he usually drop them a few times. With this case you get three layers of protection at all time. These tough cases are available for iPhone, Android and Blackberry.
The Mojo Battstation Tough Pro from ibattz is perfect for the men in your life. It’s built rugged and tough with lots of power to keep them connect on the go. I love this portable charger because it has a rubber case on the outside to protect the charger. It also has a belt clip so the person using it can keep it securely with them at all times. The charger also has a flashlight if you need to use it. I’ll be sharing my thoughts on this charger in a feature review on my blog soon.
My husband has been saying all year that he’s ready to get in shape. He’s been looking for something to track his steps, keep track of his sleep patterns, monitor his heart rate and more. With the Pulsense PS-100 Band by Epson he can start his journey to fitness before the new year starts.
Another great gift for the man on the go is the Jabra STEP Wireless ear buds. With these ear buds you can cut the cord and work out without getting tied up in the cords. You can read my feature review of the Jabra STEP and see why it would make a great gift.
When thinking of gift for men I couldn’t do a guide without adding a razor of some kind. It’s something that is always needed at one point or another so it’s a great gift idea for any man you’re shopping for. Braun is a leader in the shaving industry so their products are perfect for gift giving. The Braun line of products can fit all budgets because they have multiple price ranges for their products. I received the Braun Cruzer Trimmer for inclusion in my gift guide. It’s perfect for my husband because he trims and shape up his own hair line between visits to the barber shop. This trimmer helps him keep his facial hair in check and also saves us some money when he finally goes to the barber shop. This styling tool is small and great for traveling, it comes with a small base to store it on the bathroom sink or a cabinet. It’s a great stock stuffer and it retails for $24.95. So this holiday season gift the gift off styling to a man in your life.
If your husband loves action and plot movies he’ll enjoy Kite. Personally I had to cover my eyes a few times for some of the death scenes but it was a great movie. Based on the renowned cult classic anime of the same name, KITE tells the story of Sawa (India Eisley, “The Secret Life of the American Teenager,” Underworld: Awakening), a young woman living in a corrupt society where crime and gangs terrorize the streets.
In FRANK MILLER’S SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR, scandal, murder, betrayal and mystery surround the lives of those swept up in a crime-filled underworld. FRANK MILLER’S SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR is rated R for strong brutal stylized violence throughout, sexual content, nudity, and brief drug use. Weaving together two of Miller’s classic stories with new tales, the town’s most hard boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more reviled inhabitants. Save this movie for a special date night, it’s not for kids at all.

The Kim Parker series from Trident Cases makes the perfect stocking stuffer for women. I just love all the beautiful floral designs on her cases. Trident has their cases for phones and the iPad as well.
English Rose by English Laundry is a great gift for any woman looking for a new fragrance. English Laundry is a brand available all over the world in high end stores like Dillard’s and Nordstrom, and it’s a fan favorite among Birch Box subscribers. I received my sample and I couldn’t wait to try it. I wore it for the first time on the red carpet for the premiere of Big Hero 6. I received tons of compliments all night about the fragrance. It’s a great gift idea.

No one likes to feel disconnected when they are out and about. As a mom I always want to remain connected and as a blogger I feel like I need it especially when I am traveling on a trip. Between my kids watching videos on the phone, games, social media, emails and more it’s required that I always have extra power with me when we are out for extended periods of time. The Mojo Vogue Battstation from ibattz will keep you connected at all times.

I worked with ShaveMOB last year and created a personal care kit for my dad for when he was healing from surgery. This year ShaveMOB is offering the prefect stocking stuffer. I received one of the women’s shave kits for inclusion in my Holiday Gift Guide. The kit comes with a handle and blades in a box that’s ready for wrapping and gifting. ShaveMOB offers different supply levels for consumers. You can choose the type of blade you want and your supply amount. What I love about them the most is that they are much more affordable that purchasing your razors from the store and you always have razors on hand when you need them. With ShaveMOB there is no memberships or monthly fees, you just order when you need them. ShaveMOB also offer kits for men as well.
