Stocking Stuffers for Kids - Boys

Updated on August 3, 2013

Stocking Stuffers for Boys this Christmas

All parents have a big job at Christmas. And, it's not complete until the stockings are filled. Stocking stuffers for kids, boys specifically, is a list of suggested items for stockings.

Tired of the same old cheap toys and toothbrushes? You don't have to spend a fortune to have nice, useful and appreciated stocking stuffers. I have done some research and come up with these unique suggestions for boys 6 to 12.

Santa's coming soon. Are you ready with your stocking stuffers for boys?

This watch is water resistant, worn like the popular silicone wrist bands. It comes in many colors and will hold up better for an active boy than a traditional watch.

My son, daughter and husband all have this style watch.

Marvel Comics SuperHero Wristbands - Stocking Stuffers for Kids - Boys

It seems the wristband craze has hit both genders and all age groups. Marvel Super Heroes are very popular with boys so combine the two to get Super Hero wristbands!

He can be Spiderman one day and Captain America the next - 12 in all! What a fun stocking stuffer for boys.

 

Tip:

If a stocking stuffer is too big for the stocking, wrap it & set it next to the stocking.

This has happened to me a lot over the years. Some gifts are small and expensive while others are larger but inexpensive.

Size does not equate to cost!

Joe Bender - Soccer Player - Available in Other Sports Too!

This is a cool and different stocking stuffer idea for boys. Joe Bender's are flexible and have magnetic feet and hands and live in a tin container. Take them out and pose them or play with them by using the magnets to tick to the can.

He'll play with it for hours!

He'll play for hours trying to solve this age old solitaire game. This is the original and comes with a cup and lid for the pegs as well as instructions written on the block. Perfect for a car trip, too.

I like this one better than the cheaper models because of the cup and lid.

Video games are usually a lot more expensive than a traditional stocking stuffer. I get around this by purchasing a gift card to Amazon.com in an amount I am comfortable with. Then, he can use it towards the purchase of a video game or any other item he is really wanting.

      I've given Amazon Gift Cards to my teenage grandsons because their 'interests' change so frequently and because I live too far away from them to keep track of what they already have. I LOVE the idea of the 'Gift Card Maze'. It would tickle me to watch them have to 'work' for their gift card... LOL.
