As a mom, I always enjoy choosing stocking stuffers for my son. I have 5 factors in considering the items to be included in my own list.
It should be:
- something educational – books, puzzle, games
- something to wear – socks, gloves, underwear
- something to use in art works or in school– crayons, eraser, pens
- something to eat – candies, chocolates, gummies
- something not expensive – below $10 (Why? Because we already bought their Christmas gifts right?! These are just additional stuff. LOL!)
So here are my choices and recommendations:
