45+ Inexpensive Stocking Stuffers for Toddlers

45+ Inexpensive Toddler Stocking Stuffer Ideas

It’s about that time of year where I start stocking up on stocking stuffers. I don’t ever think stocking stuffers need to be anything big or amazing (and it certainly needs to fit in a stocking), but I think they are fun to get. I usually get stockings from one of three places:

  • Target (their dollar section is a gold mine!)
  • The Dollar Tree (go early – they sell out of the good stuff early!)
  • Amazon – with Amazon Prime, I’m always getting great deals! If you haven’t signed up for Amazon Prime, you can get a free 30 day trial here – now would be an awesome time to get the free trial. Free shipping is amazing!
  • Using Ebates when shopping online – awesome way to earn cashback from tons of different online retailers (be sure to read this post for more information on getting cashback for everyday purchases!)

Since Jack is well into his toddler years, I thought it would be appropriate to share some different ideas I’ve come up with for his stocking this year. I think these toddler stocking stuffer ideas are pretty affordable and any little toddler would love finding them on Christmas morning.
