    There is a lot of good stuff for stuffing socks! I used to make socks for my nephews and nieces years ago but have not in years now.

    I especially like the idea of books for kids, but it seems like my grandkids are so much more interested in video games. That being said, the games for Switch are great ones.

    These are some great gift ideas. My daughters would especially love the Slimy Sand Aqua Splash.

    I like to give edibles as stocking stuffers so I like the brownies and the Monster Snack mix.

  • Ashley Parks

    My kids are really into art and art activities. They would love the Kwik Sticks! They would also love the Matchbox Mouse and his little friends animals. The cat and the dino are super cute!

  • Lauryn R

  • Ashley Parks

    Ty Beanie Babies are a favorite around here too. They have some in a section at Hobby Lobby and my kids always stop when we are in there shopping and show me which new ones they want. I love the Rock the Locks Hair color and conditioner. I wonder how well it would show up on darker hair. I know my girls would think that was fun to try.
