Can't think of what to get your little ones this year? Then look no further. We've put together a list of the very best toddler stocking stuffer ideas!
Christmas shopping in your local high street might not be the easiest of tasks this year but that does not mean Christmas has to be cancelled. It’s time to keep up with the times and use different methods of purchasing presents instead.
The world of online shopping is a fantastic place, especially when using services from small independent businesses. There is a whole world of different stores and businesses out there that offer some great toddler stocking stuffers. With COVID-19 still hot in the air it’s time to trust in these businesses and use methods like this to our own advantage.
This year we have a toddler and that toddler is very much interested in it all. We’ve come up with 15 unique ideas for elf on the shelf, invested in a variety of toddler-friendly books and even started on the Christmas Eve boxes.
It’s fair to say that we have been very organised this year!
OUR FAVOURITE STOCKING STUFFERS FOR TODDLERS:
If your toddler is anything like ours then I’m sure they already have everything they need and more. Unfortunately, Christmas is an annual thing and every year I struggle to find something new and exciting.
This year I took a completely different approach to the toddler-friendly stocking stuffers that my little darling got. Now-days I tend to get a lot of things from Facebook Marketplace. Facebook has an incredible online community where people in your local area sell/give away toys and activities they no longer want or need. It’s a great place to pick up a bargain and also go and recycle your old toys too.
Do you know how many Vtech Toot Toot driver sets I’ve got on there for over half the price… A LOT!
The list that I have put together today focuses mainly on Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers for toddlers between the ages of 18 months – 3 years old. I really hope that it helps you to find and/or inspire some fun, unique and exciting gift ideas for your children this year.
Weaving Hope is a wonderful business that sells fair trade toys and gifts for children of all ages. This year we picked up their farm pouch playset for Alexis. We thought it would make the perfect Christmas present as we have just started to introduce her to the different farm animals. The set is perfect for travel as it comes in a small pouch-like bag that unzips into a play matt for the children to play on. Included in this set, you will find a pair each of cows, sheep, pigs, ducks and chickens, plus a dog and a small movable enclosure set out onto a well-designed meadow.
All of their products are so beautifully crafted with materials and products that are durable and safe for our children to use. They work very closely with fair trade in order to provide highly skilled and sustainable ways of working for women in rural areas. You can read more about the amazing work they do by heading to their website.
Jodie, the owner and creator behind the blog Jodetopia is one of my favourite family bloggers out there. She keeps everything real with fun educational resources and supplies the most amazing sensory rice play packs.
We recently purchased one of Jodies Autumnal themed rice packs and have had hours of fun with it. There are so many ways you can use sensory rice to create an easy toddler activity. This is a perfect idea for little ones starting out on their learning journey.
I am forever coming up with new, wild and wacky ideas for Alexis to play with and she loves them. If you haven’t already you should try out easy to make at home cloud dough idea. It’s the perfect activity for children of all ages to do on a rainy day!
Bow Rae me
Bow Rae Me is an online store that I accidentally came across when I was scrolling through Instagram one day. Did you even know that there are loads of online stores that work through Instagram? I know I didn’t until now. Not only does this lady create the most amazing bows but she also sells them at such an affordable price. I find that a lot of handmade products are usually extortionate prices but Bow Rae Me is the most affordable one on the market.
I have purchased many bows from this lovely lady and I have never once been disappointed. Her packaging is beautifully designed which makes it the perfect gift for any little girl. As well as this she offers such a vast amount of unique colours, styles and patterned designs.

GLITT3R AND SHINE:
I was recently contacted by the company Glitt3r And Shine to see if I would be interested in personalised wooden letters for Alexis. Of course, I said YES! and ultimately jumped for joy. I mean just look at how beautifully made they are? I was in complete control of personalisation which included choosing the design, colours and size of the letters.
We decided to get her whole name designed so that we could place it on her nursery wall. It actually looks amazing and I am so glad I went ahead with it. If you want to check out all the other amazing personalised gifts that this lady creates then head over to her Etsy store by clicking here.
PERSONALISED TODDLER STOCKING STUFFer IDEAS FROM STUDIO:
I know I said that this post was going to be all about small independent businesses well, this is the only exception. The reason I wanted to mention The Studio Catalogue is that they have some fantastic stocking stuffer ideas and very affordable gifts. I have purchased so many bargains from them before and never once been disappointed. Ever find a really good deal and wonder if it’s too good to be true? Second-guessing whether or not something must be wrong! Well, that’s exactly how I feel when shopping at Studio. Their deals are so good that you wonder whether or not the product will actually turn up? I am just here to say that I am living proof that they are legit and you will get that bargain.
Studio is also incredible for personalised products which I think make the best stocking stuffers! I am going to mention a few of my favourites below..
