Top Tips on Buying Stocking Stuffers for Toddlers

  • Set a Budget. How much do you want to spend? It's easy to get carried away buying lots of things for your toddlers stocking but before you know it you've spent more that you wanted to. Set a limit and plan your stocking before buying. You can get lots of great little toys from dollar stores and different stores. Also, consider buying things that you were going to buy anyway. Themed toothbrushes, soaps etc make nice gifts for a toddler's socking.
  • Don't buy lots of junk. As already said it's so easy to get carried away buying little things for your toddlers stocking and before you know it you've got lots of cheap toys that your toddler will hardly play with. Plan what you want to put into your stocking before you buy. Sometimes it may be worth buying a couple of more expensive items than lots and lots of junk.
  • Consider the size of the stocking? Remember if you have a huge stocking you will need bigger presents or more presents to fill it. You also don't want to overbuy for a smaller stocking.
  • Check the suitability of what your buying. You want to make sure the gifts you choose don't poze a choking or any other hazard.
  • Don't go Overboard. You don't have to go mad! Toddlers will just love looking in the stocking and reaching to see what's in there. You don't have to spend lots as they will get forgotten quickly.
