Christmas is closing in and I am loving getting everything ready for the final countdown. I have been sharing Christmas content on my blog for a few weeks now, and I am so excited to share this new post with you. Both of my girls are still under five and I have so many Christmas stocking filler ideas that I couldn’t possibly share them all. However I have chosen a few top picks to fill up your children’s stockings this Christmas.
The future is shaped by your dreams, so stop wasting time and go to sleep!
Cute string lights
Unicorn mood light
Toys are children’s words and play is their language.
Fingerlings Ashley and Mini Chance
Fingerlings Alika the purple baby unicorn
With a variety of Fingerlings products in our collection now (remember our Bella the Fingerlings Hugs review?) it only seemed fair we got Alika the Fingerlings purple baby unicorn for Squidgy’s Christmas stocking this year. She absolutely fell in love with Pickle’s Fingerlings BFFs Ashley and Chance and with her love of unicorns this Alika is the perfect gift idea.
Small toy blister packs
If you haven’t heard of the Wish app (where have you been?!) be sure to go and check it out now! Although some of the items that are for sale on there are totally bizarre; occasionally you can find a complete gem. Thanks to Lyndsay from Fizzy Peaches sharing this wooden camera find on her Instagram stories I tracked it down. In their favourite colours (pink for Pickle and purple for Squidgy!) these little cameras are the perfect stocking filler for children… especially if they are children of a blogger or photographer. Plus they are a bargain at just £4!
Sylvanian Families Mini Sets
Chocolate is the answer, who cares what the question is!
Everyone loves chocolate, all year round! This is one of the cheapest, easiest stocking fillers you can pop inside your children’s stockings this Christmas. We bought these amazing Christmas chocolate lolly pops from Primark (I know, right?!) They come in packs of two and a choice of Christmas characters. I love the fact that you can get Santa and his reindeer and the fact there are two in a pack means the girls can have one of each in their stockings this year.
Effort is like toothpaste, you can always squeeze out just a little bit more.
Toothbrush and toothpaste
Cheap and easy to find in pretty much every store from supermarkets to department stores, toothbrushes and toothpaste always make a great stocking filler. You should be changing your families toothbrushes every three or so months (or sooner if the bristles are frayed!) so you can be sure that at some point your family will need a new toothbrush. Having one (or a pack of more than one!) inside your children’s stocking will ensure that you have some at the ready when they need replacing.
Wash, brush, floss and flush!
Bubble bath and baby wash
Life isn’t perfect, but your outfit can be!
Children are forever growing out of their clothes, even their underwear. Plus, I can’t tell you the amount of times we have had one sock of a pair go missing too! Popping some socks, vests, knickers and tights into a stocking for children at Christmas is a great way to top up their stash. John and I tend to buy them in the next size up so that we are not wasting the opportunity and money!
Invest in your hair; it is the crown you never take off.
Hair clip bows
It’s no secret that I love a beautiful bow and doing my girls’ hair in exciting, fun styles. I even have an Instagram account dedicated to their hairstyles call My Girls’ Hairstyles. The market is highly saturated but I have found a couple of wonderful mama run businesses that sell beautiful bows. At this time of year they are doing some fabulous Christmas designs too, some of which I am lucky enough to have ready for my girls! Be sure to go and check out Maya’s Bows (the lovely lady who made these glittery red pigtail bows) and Maisy-Molly & Me (who knows Squidgy so well at this point the unicorn candy cane bow was a surprise addition to one of my orders!)
I hope you now have some amazing Christmas stocking filler ideas for under 5s (and let's be honest other ages too!) and are ready to get shopping for all those little bits and pieces to go inside your own children’s stockings!
Wishing you a very Happy Christmas from my family and me this year!
