How are you getting on with your 2020 festive shopping? Considering the year it’s been I’m feeling pretty organised for once! We have ordered our food shop, the tree and decorations are up and, most of the presents are bought for the family and our friends. What’s left is the stocking fillers from Father Christmas. I have a go to list of things for my daughter but this is the first year my son will really get a taste of Christmas magic, although he might not understand it all properly for a couple of years yet his little face seeing the tree and having his advent calender. He’s only two so stocking fillers for him will be pretty basic but I have a go to list of things each year for my daughter (which I’m sure my mum did with me!).
Regular readers of the blog will know my daughter, Evangeline, loves Smiggle and they have become our go to for stationary and school shopping supplies. Smiggle have a great range of stocking fillers online for children (and adults too, if you’re anything like me!) who love scented stationary, squishes and collectibles. There’s even our go-to Smiggle advent calendar which is a great alternative for those that can’t (or won’t) have a chocolate one. Evie always loves the advent calendar because it comes with a variety of stationary products of all shapes and sizes and really feels like a little gift each day. So far she has opened up days one and two and found a multi colour pen and tiny notebook. I don’t know about your children, but mine are always more amazed by things that are really tiny. I think I was when I was that age too!
Alternatively, Smiggle has such a range of products that if you have a resuable advent calendar and prefer a home made approach some of the scented goodies and character rubbers could make excellent fillers. Other stocking filler ideas could be the squishy toys, scented gel pen sets or a pot of galaxy goo. If you’re looking for more ASMR stocking fillers or gift ideas then there is fluffy sand and slime kits for kids that need that extra stimulation. I love the fluffy sand, it feels so satisfying!
Other things Evangeline loves from Smiggle are the moving sequin notebooks. We’ve had a few different ones over the years from unicorns to mermaid tails. The most recent one is this cute little panda notebook. There are a great range of character notebooks suitable for different tastes depending on your child’s favourite animals or colour. A lot of the stationary is a little on the quirky side too like these colourful bendy rubbers that remind me of marshmallow sweets.
What are some of your go to stocking fillers for your children?
