With Christmas on its way, you are probably done with the gifts and scrambling to fill the stockings now. I usually fill my little one’s stockings with candy but most of it gets thrown away after a month or two. This year I decided I wanted to stuff my toddler’s stocking with more useful items. Here are the best stocking stuffers for toddlers that aren’t candy.
Nûby No-Spill 360 ° Wonder Cup
These are the best sippy cups on the market. They don’t leak, are easy to wash, and come in the cutest designs. My husband was constantly complaining about leaking cups and we made the switch permanently to the No-Spill 360 ° Wonder Cup. This cup is designed to prevent spills while being delicate and gentle to baby’s gums and emerging teeth. These cups also hold 10 ounces of liquid so you don’t have constantly refill for your ever thirsty toddler. These wonder cups can be found at Babies R’ Us here or online at Amazon here. P.S. They are on sale for a limited time at Amazon!
What toddler doesn’t love bath time?! Squirt toys can be all the rage during bath time but they can grow mold in them if not properly taken care of. I usually toss them out after a couple of months just to be safe. Grabbing a few new Christmas themed ones are easy and fun.
A Fun Toothbrush
By now your toddler should be well into their teeth brushing routine. Once they hit the toddler age bracket, I’ve found fun characters and spin brushes seem to peak their interests even more. Grabbing a cheap $5 toothbrush (grabbed mine at Target) with their favorite character is a great way to encourage healthy and fun brushing.
Being that its winter and dry, my little guy’s lips can get so chapped. He’s terrible at picking at them so I’ve been trying to keep them moisturized as much as possible. Throwing his own character chapstick is a great way to encourage him to use it versus picking at his lips.
Though I am throwing in some Reese’s Trees into the boy’s stockings because come on, its Reese’s, I’m also aiming for lower sugar snacks such as Pepperidge Farm Gingerman Minis. They are delicious and the perfect size for a toddler’s hands. I usually put one in my own stocking because they’re so good.
Yep, they are all the rage and there are so many options out there. The type of blind bag to get really depends on your toddler. Many blind bags are made for ages 2-4 and have hundreds of different characters to choose from. These little bags are also cheap ranging from $3-$6 a bag at Target here. My youngest loves all the minion and trolls bags so I threw a couple in his stocking already.
Nûby Snack N’ Sip
These cups are perfect for your on the go toddler or better yet, car rides. The Nûby Snack N’ Sip holds 9oz of fluid and 4.5 ounces of dry snacks all in one cup! Of course, the cup has a No Spill 100% soft silicone flex straw so no worries about spills or messes while using the cup. You can grab a snack n’ sip cup at Babies R’ Us, Walmart here, or Amazon here.
