The Best Stocking Stuffer Ideas For Families with Teens

Are you looking for some fun things to stuff those stockings this year? We have you covered with our amazing list of stocking stuffer ideas.

Did you ever get coal in your stocking?


Us either!

But when we were kids, we may have been warned a time or two by our parents, that Santa Claus was going to leave us coal if we weren’t good.

We don’t think we’ve ever said that to our own kids…although that Elf on the Shelf has kept them on their best behavior at this time of year.

As you know, our kids aren’t little anymore.

They’re all teens and young adults ranging from 18 to 25 years old.

But no matter how old they get we still love making Christmas extra special and giving them gifts.

We shared both a teen girl gift guide and a teen boy gift guide earlier this week.

Did you see them?

More than 25 amazing gift ideas that they are sure to love this year!

Be sure to check it out & share it with anyone you know that has teens.

Now that you’ve got the presents covered, we came up with some awesome stocking stuffer ideas.

Because we don’t know about you, but we really have fun filling everyone’s stockings.

And not only do our kids get fun stockings.

Our husbands and we do too!

The first thing both of our families do on Christmas morning is peek in their stockings to see what’s inside.

Do you open presents or stockings first in your family?

We’ve divided our ideas into four lists.

One for mom, another for dad, then teen girls and teen boys.

But don’t let those categories stop you from looking at all of them because many of the ideas can be used for anyone on your list!

Now, let’s get started with over 70 of the best stocking stuffer ideas for moms, dads & teens!
