10 Stocking Stuffers Under $10 That Kids Will Absolutely Love

I do most of my holiday shopping online, but even with the relative ease of Amazon's free shipping (Prime membership FTW!), there are two major pain-in-the-butt things about gift-buying this time of year. 1) The fact that if you have little kids who believe in Santa, you totally don't get the credit for the fact that YOU were the one who went to the ends of the earth to buy that impossible-to-find toy they wanted, and 2) stocking stuffers. Oh my god, after all the shopping and buying and wrapping, you still have to do stocking stuffers?

If you don't plan ahead, the act of buying stocking contents can all too easily turn into the hellish, expensive nightmare that is the Overcompensating Party Favor Bag. Let us avoid the Stocking Stuffer Trap this year, fellow moms! Here are 10 awesome, home-run ideas for your kids' stockings (and best of all, each one costs under $10):

My dd always gets a toothbrush every year.  I should get her band aids because she always likes to waste them.

Toothbrush is always in there and a reese's tree...for the rest I hit up Target bins or something for just liitle things.

tfs! my kids love temporary tattoos. I think some of these items are a bit pricey...like the band-aids, $7 for something that gets worn a bit then tossed.

Crayons, markers, small activity books, journals, ets are always good stuffers that the kids will use.
