For the past 5 years I’ve had two toddlers in my life, so putting together this list of the best stocking stuffers for toddlers seemed like a no-brainer!  I absolutely love Christmas (and Christmas shopping), so this has always been something I enjoyed. And with one boy and one girl, I’ve been able to experience two fun sides of stocking stuffer shopping.

So hopefully this list can help you with your own shopping this year!  

Without further ado, here are the best stocking stuffers for toddlers:

These toddler stocking stuffers will make for such a fun Christmas morning! No matter what your little girl or boy is interested in, this list will be helpful!

Play Keys

Every toddler loves keys and this specific set of keys is always a huge winner because it’s as close to the real thing as a toddler toy can get!  There is a button that beeps and shines a light, in addition to the keys.

Toddler Magnets

Magnets are such a great toddler stocking stuffer! It’s not only fun for them, but also a great way for them to learn and an awesome distraction to keep them busy while you’re getting work done in the kitchen (assuming your fridge is magnetic!).

Banana Toothbrush

This banana toothbrush isn’t an actual toothbrush, but it is an unbelievably popular toy that every toddler I’ve ever known has fallen in love with.  So if you’ve got a young toddler on your hands and they don’t have this yet, it’s a perfect stocking stuffer for them!

Snack Catcher Cups

I honestly don’t know what I would do without snack catcher cups and your toddler will be even more excited by them!  If you’ve never seen them before, they let your toddler carry around a snack and prevent the snack from dumping out. They’re cheap, they’re fun, and they’re an awesome toddler stocking stuffer!

Toddler Books

Books are one of the best gifts you can get for your kids and the best thing about these specific books are that they’re the perfect size to be stocking stuffers for toddlers!  But regardless of their size, they’re huge hits all on their own. Here are the ones to get:

Is it a proper stocking if it doesn’t include socks??  This a great classic, something you need anyways, and ultimately a great stocking stuffer idea for toddlers!

These socks were (and are) the absolute favorites for both of my toddlers (they make both designs for boys and designs for girls).  They can actually learn to put them on themselves and they’re totally adorable.

Trains and Train Tracks

My son received his first train when he was 2 and his (and my) life has never been the same since.  Trains are definitely one of the best stocking stuffers for toddlers and a great way to introduce them to a wholesome toy that will likely be part of their lives for years to come (seriously).  Thomas is certainly the most popular train, but you can also opt for generic trains that will still be compatible with Brio train tracks. Learn to love these brands now because you’re about to become very familiar with them!! 😉

The size and the characters make little figurines the perfect stocking stuffer for toddlers.  My kids were (and are) obsessed with these. If they’ve got a favorite book or TV character, then that’s exactly what you want to find.  Here are the favorites in my house:

Bath Little Squirts

Bath Little Squirts are an absolute classic and another great stocking stuffer idea for toddlers.  These toys make bath time way more fun, but can also be used around the house. I always had (and still do) some in the car, my purse, the diaper bag, the playroom, the high chair, the crib, my bedroom…you get the idea. 😉

Sippy Cups

Sippy cups are so much fun for toddlers because they’re just learning to be more independent, so anything they can do without you, they LOVE.  Hands down, my absolute favorite toddler sippy cup was the Lolacup. They don’t leak, they’re easy to use, and you can throw them in your purse or diaper bag and not worry about leaking.  They are the real deal.


Bows!!!  If your toddler is a little girl, you just can’t. get. enough. bows. These are my favorite!  They’re small, come in adorable designs, and have a ton of options. But there are just so many fun bows out there, so you really can’t go wrong here!

Toddler Toothbrushes

Toothbrushes are another great toddler stocking stuffer because brushing teeth becomes a really fun concept for them as they start to get more and more of their own teeth.

There are a lot of really cute toddler toothbrushes out there, so this is another easy one!

Little People

Little People are one of the greatest stocking stuffers for toddlers, especially if you already have some of the larger Little People sets.  There are a lot of fun “extra” Little People that you can get that will fit perfectly into a toddler stocking. Here are some of the really fun ones:

Bath Books

Bath books are such a fun stocking stuffer for toddlers and another great way to make bath time way more fun!  This is my daughter’s absolute favorite bathtime activity. I could honestly recite our bath books in my sleep.  Her favorite is Wake Up, Magic Duck!, so if you don’t have it, give that one a try.

Dress-Up Jewelry

Both my son and my daughter loved wearing silly necklaces as toddlers, so this is not something you need to limit to just girls!  With that said, if you’ve got a little girl on your hands, then you DEFINITELY need to get her some toddler jewelry. This is the set that I am getting for my daughter this year. It’s a good mix between “play” jewelry and “real” jewelry, so I’m happy with it…and she can wear it while we’re out without looking totally ridiculous. 🙂

Bath Crayons

Bath crayons are an absolute must for toddlers and they make perfect stocking stuffers!  Most toddlers love bath time, so this is a great way to make it more fun and give them a chance to learn and experiment.


Sometimes you just can’t beat the classics.  And nothing excites a toddler like a good old fashioned ball!  So have fun with this one and get them the toy that they’ll play with all day long.

Duplo Sets

My bet is that your toddler already has a set of Mega Bloks (and if they don’t, you know what to get them under the tree!), which they most likely love.  That makes these little Duplo Sets a ton of fun because they put them together just like Mega Bloks, except these will make a little vehicle (because anything with wheels makes toddlers happy). They’re really easy and perfect for toddlers! Here are the sets that are perfect for stockings:


Fingerlings are one of the hottest new toys in recent years and they’re a blast for toddlers!  These little critters are the perfect size for little guys to carry around and they actually move their heads and make little noises…like they’re a real little pet!  My toddler already has a collection of them and she’s obsessed with each one.


Just because it isn’t summer doesn’t mean that your toddler can’t find a fun pair of sunglasses in their stocking!  Toddlers look so adorable in sunglasses and they’ll be all ready once summer comes.


You really can’t go wrong with cars and luckily there are a lot of great toddler-approved cars that don’t have choking hazards AND have fun bells and whistles.  These are the ones my toddlers were both obsessed with. They’re a huge hit.


Slippers are one of my favorite toddler stocking stuffers because they’re just so unbelievably adorable.  Not to mention that they’re USEFUL. Cold weather is just around the corner and slippers are perfect for hanging around the house! These are the ones my kids will both be finding in their stocking.  So freaking cute.

Hat and Gloves

Winter is coming!  This is the perfect time to get an adorable hat and gloves set for your toddler to enjoy with all the winter fun that is ahead.  

Bath Stickers

Bath Stickers are a must-have bath toy for toddlers and they’re perfect for stockings.  They’re not only fun for building and playing around, but they’re also a great way to introduce your toddler (and soon-to-be preschooler) to numbers, letters, and colors.

Bath Dropz

Not surprisingly, kids love changing the color of their bath water and that’s exactly what these Bath Dropz do.  What is really fun about these is you can start to teach them about making new colors by letting them add two different colors to make a third.  It’s a lot of fun!

Stocking stuffers for toddlers are so much fun to shop for, but the best part will obviously be Christmas morning!  Enjoy the holiday with your little one! I hope these ideas for toddler stocking stuffers came in handy.
