If you’re looking to replace cheap dollar spot toys and gadgets and fill your stocking with a couple of high quality items then you’re in good company! Here’s our Favorite Stocking Stuffers for Toddlers and Preschoolers that aren’t going to get thrown away the week after Christmas.
Over the past few years we have tried to be more intentional about our gift giving. Our mantra has become quality over quantity—stockings included! Rather than filling our stockings up to the brim with little gadgets and dollar spot finds that are going to end up in the trash shortly after Christmas, we try to pick a couple of thoughtful high quality items that will be thoroughly enjoyed throughout the year (or many years to come). For example, last year we included a snowman mug for our now 5 year old and she uses her special mug almost every day. If you’re looking for some fresh ideas here’s our Favorite Stocking Stuffers for Toddlers and Preschoolers.
