Christmas shopping can be stressful, especially as that magical day gets closer. For me, picking out stocking stuffers is always the most difficult and the stockings end up filled with mostly candy. This year I was determined to choose fun, functional items to fill those stockings with and I wanted to share some of my favorites with you.
Marcus & Marcus Learning Chopsticks
Marcus & Marcus Learning Chopsticks are perfect for babies and toddlers since they are safe, durable, and easy to clean. They are also BPA/Phthalate-free and feature an animal hinge made of food-grade silicone. The hinge holds the two sticks together so young children can work them more like tongs. You can choose from Marcus the Lion, Pokey the Pig, Lola the Giraffe, Ollie the Elephant, and Willo the Whale. You can pick up a set on Amazon.
My Magic Mud Activated Charcoal Toothpaste whitens and polishes the teeth naturally. The toothpaste combines activated coconut shell charcoal, bentonite clay, and other wholesome ingredients. It is fluoride-free and non-GMO so you do not have to worry about harsh ingredients. The dentist recommended My Magic Mud toothpaste is available in Cinnamon Clove, Wintergreen, Spearmint, and Peppermint. It is safe for all ages and you can find it at the Vitamin Shoppe and Bed Bath and Beyond.
If you have a little one that loves to play cars, check out the InRoad Toys PlayTape Classic Road Series. The PlayTape is a roll of tape that looks like a road. It is the perfect size for Hot Wheels and it works great for a hotel room or a friend’s house to keep the kids entertained. It is also removable so you never have to worry about damaging the floor. You find it right on the PlayTape website or on Amazon. It is available in various colors and sizes.
You can also pick up some PlayTape Curves to take the roads to a new level. This tape gives racetracks the right twists and turns.
With bright eyes and white teeth, The ZIPIT Monster Pouch is a fun way to store pens, pencils, and other supplies. Made from
100% polyester, it can withstand daily use. The pouch holds up to 25 or 30 pens or pencils and the top is extra-wide for easy access.
It is available in an assortment of colors and you can find it on Amazon.
The ZIPIT Large Grillz Backpack in Black is not exactly stocking stuffer size, but it is too fun not to add to my list. With an exterior pocket that unzips to reveal a shiny grill, it is loaded with personality. The grill, combined with the eyes and hood, gives this bag a fierce style to help kids get through the day. Padded, adjustable straps make it comfortable to carry and the machine washable fabric makes it simple to clean. It is also available in Neon Pink. You can find the it on the ZIPIT website, or at select Target stores during back to school.
All of the items above also make great gifts for the other kids in your life. They are not only functional, they will put a smile on the recipient’s face.
