I often think filling a stocking is just as difficult as picking out the right present. It’s hard to strike a balance between putting quality items in there and not breaking the bank. For my girls, I like to pick a couple of nice items then fill in the rest with smaller fun and practical items like notepads, art supplies, stickers, chocolates, a pair of mittens, and of course, an orange in the toe.
Mastermind Toys is one of my favourite places to go holiday shopping, and if you need a little help coming up with some last minute stocking stuffer ideas, they have a huge selection of items under $20 both in store and online. Check out my top picks for stocking stuffers perfect for the younger set!
DIGIBIRDS ($12.99), Ages 5+
Introducing the new singing sensations, DigiBirds: colourful little interactive birds that sing to you! The DigiBirds mimic real birds through their head and beak movement while singing and tweeting. Blow on the DigiBird to start it tweeting or whistle for your bird to start singing! Collect more than one DigiBird and start a choir through the chorus mode!
BLINK TIME WATCH ($8.99), Ages 5+
Each watch has a bright LED display so checking the time in darkness has never been easier. The one touch activation illuminates the time, press again to see the date and once more will show the seconds counter.
