I’m so excited about these stocking stuffers for kids, tweens, and teens from ages 3 to 13 that I’m barely resisting buying them all. I did a lot of research on gifts for kids for my holiday gift guide 2015 the found some cool fun ideas that your kids will love. Hope you love them, too!

We highly recommend this fast-paced, fun and easy dice game.

These are great for bedtime worries. They come in both large and small sizes– and it’s a plush toy with a zipper mouth to eat your worries.

Tropical Fish Sillo-Ettes Wristlet ages 3+
8 inch wide Tropical Fish Sillo-ette wristlets purse in bright chevron designer fabric. Safe plastic zipper and wrist strap with clip is a perfect first purse/wristlets.
My daughter LOVES her Fitbit! Get one for your kids that will tell time and help you calculate steps, calories, distance, and sleep. It’s a great way to motivate healthy living.
Scrunchy Hair Bands
They’re baaaack. Yes, I couldn’t believe it either but I’m so psyched. Your tween (and mine) with long hair will want these soft velvet hair bands because they’re useful and trendy.

My teen wants this bracelet for Christmas! The white bead with water from Mount Everest represents life’s highest moments. The black bead with mud from the Dead Sea signifies difficult moments.
