Lori Lori is a work-at-home mom of three living in Noblesville, Indiana.

It’s almost Christmas time and I could not be more pumped!! I just love this time of year so much, but the money spending and the quest to find practical presents (I hate giving people extra CLUTTER) makes me a little crazy. So this brings me to one of my biggest challenges: finding kid stocking stuffers my three children (because they are always so excited to see what Santa left them)!

Candy seems to be most people‚Äôs go-to to fill up those kid stockings, but I’m a party pooper and never want to go that route because we still have loads of it left from Halloween. Surely I’m not the only one that struggles with ideas for kid stocking stuffers, so I put together this solid list of several (non-candy) ideas for kids of all ages to help you find practical AND fun things your kids will love!

Oh and go ahead and let your family know about this list of stocking stuffer ideas for mom so you get some things you want in your stocking, too because you deserve it!
