This Christmas, I (er…Santa) will be stuffing the stockings of two teens and one pre-teen. So, I turned to my boys for some of the best stocking stuffer ideas for teens…and got nothing!
When I asked my oldest son for stocking stuffer ideas, his response was…”MONEY”! Of course, he’s a broke college student. What else would he say?
Then I asked my 14-year-old for some ideas. He said, “CANDY”! Strike two.
I didn’t even bother asking my pre-teen for ideas!
Instead, I decided to scour Amazon for some of the best stocking stuffer ideas for teens. Here’s what I came up with.
The Best Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Teens
I only recently discovered this nifty gem. You create sketches on the board using only water and a small brush. When the water evaporates, the surface is ready for another creation. This is the mini-version (5″ X 5″) of the Buddha board, so it’s the perfect size for stockings! I will be getting my artist one of these this year for sure! Shhh…don’t tell him!
Our family loves Mad Libs! Even better, it’s educational! Good, clean fun for all ages.
I used fairy lights to decorate for my son’s graduation party and I am hooked! This set is neat because it’s battery operated and you can choose from 13 different colors. This set of fairy lights also comes with a handy-dandy remote. Teens love them because they can put them just about anywhere (they’re waterproof). They create a surprising amount of light given their size!
Who doesn’t need lip balm in winter? This all-natural set is made of beeswax and comes with an assortment of 4 flavors.
Because you know your newbie driver has questions that he/she won’t ask you. Get them this handy guide written exclusively for new teen drivers.
Isn’t it funny how the classics never seem to go out of style? I remember doing scratch art when I was a kid. And that was a long time ago in a galaxy far far away! I love this smaller version of scratch art!
My pre-teen loves playing Would you Rather with his own made-up questions. However, sometimes he gets stuck for ideas. This little card game is the perfect solution!
8. Happy Socks
My middle son loves wearing funky socks. The more colorful, the better. Which is why, every year, he gets a pair of Happy Socks in his Christmas stocking.
Because no parent should be forced to listen to their teen’s music! Unless they actually want to.
How many times has your teen been away from home and you couldn’t reach them because their phone was dead? Been there, done that. Now, I make my son carry a portable charger with him as soon as he steps foot out the door. Peace of mind for mama…priceless!
I hope these 10 Best Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Teens have given you some inspiration for your Christmas shopping this year! Of course, you could always just fill your teen’s stocking with candy and cash…
