5 Great Stocking Filler Ideas!

We are now in that final stretch of Christmas Shopping season where we are scrabbling around trying to fill the Christmas stockings. Why are they so hard?

In our house we leave the stockings until Boxing Day so that the kids still have some gifts to open but this can lead to disappointment if the worst of the presents are stuffed in the stockings. This year I’ve been having a good look round to see that there is high enough quality in there so that it isn’t an anti climax. I do tend to have a bit of a problem with size! The amount of times that I’ve got stocking fillers that don’t actually fit in the stockings is quite high so don’t rely on me to choose things that actually fit. Haha!

Our kids are also all over ten years old now which makes it even more of a challenge. So¬† here are 5 items that are techy and gadgety enough to make the gifts interesting to older kids. Fingers crossed they fit, apologies if they don’t. ūüôā Stretchy stockings could be the answer.
