December with all the parties and special events, so why not do a food-free
holiday stocking? If you need ideas, here are 25 food-free stocking stuffer ideas

1. Toothbrush and toothpaste
2. Silly Putty or Play-Doh
3. Socks and underwear
4. Small Lego sets or minifigures
5. Gift cards
7. Deck of playing cards
8. New water bottle
9. Crayons, colored pencils or markers
12. Lip gloss or lip balm
13. Disposable camera
14. Small puzzle
15. Matchbox car
18. Thank you notes (even little ones can scribble on them
to send to Grandma!)
19. Ear buds or headphones
20. Cookie cutters (you’ll have to keep track of these,
