Stocking Stuffers for the Entire Family

Stocking Stuffers are a great way to include even more goodies into your holiday gift giving.  I love filling my family’s stockings with a variety of gift options.  I like to include a little food goodies so they can snack on while I’m making breakfast, small gadgets, jewelry, games and so much more.  There are lots of great options for the stocking and I’m sharing some of the items I’ll be putting in my family’s stocking this year. I hope you these suggestions helpful.

Nature’s Bakery sent us a whole box of goodies to enjoy for the holidays, including their limited edition Pumpkin Spice Fig Bars.  I’m not a fan of pumpkin so I gave these to my sister but my family loved the other goodies in our box.  I was actually quite surprised how much my kids loved their Brownie Bars.  They even enjoyed the Gluten Free options as well.  My four-year old choose these for snack time at school instead of his usual chips or fruit snacks.  They are perfect for snacking on, for popping in lunch boxes or gifting during the holidays.  You can purchase Nature’s Bakery products online from Amazon.

I just love snacking on Jelly Beans.  They are the just the right amount of sugar when I’m looking for a pick me up.  I like keeping a few of these in a zip lock baggie for when we are traveling with the kids because they are easy to eat in the car and they don’t make a lot of mess (as long as the kids don’t spill).  Jelly beans are great for making small treat bags for possible class parties and teacher gifts.  They are also great for stockings.  Gimballs offer a lovely selection to choose from, and I’m sure everyone would love finding a special package of these in their stockings.

Growing up in the Caribbean I used to have coconut water all the time when I wanted something refreshing to drink.  As a matter of fact my parent’s only let us have soda during the holiday season.  I don’t drink it that often but once I found out about Coco Joy Kids Flavored Coconut Water I knew it would be something my kids would love.  I like that it’s not loaded with sugar and they like that it tastes delicious.  Coco Joy Kids is a healthier alternative to sugary soft drinks with no added sugar, no preservatives, and no concentrates.

My kids had the opportunity to try out Natural Twig Colored Pencils a few months ago.  I have to admit these are probably the best colored pencils we’ve ever used.  They are strong and very durable.  I was worried how long they would last and this set has outlasted two regular sets we purchased for the kids and it’s still going strong.  These work just like your regular colored pencils the only difference is, it needs to be sharpened with a knife so it does require adults to sharpen once the point starts to get lower.  These are great for gift giving, and can also be used for decor.  It wouldn’t surprise me if these make it to next summer.  You can purchase these online.
