Filling a Christmas stocking used to be as simple as putting a few pieces of fruit, some mixed nuts, and a couple of candy bars inside. Now, the stocking has gotten to be an important part of Christmas morning, and finding items that girls will enjoy is part of the fun! The sooner you start looking for these special gifts, the easier it will be to create a stocking full of joy. Here are some great stocking stuffers for girls: - Mini stuffed animals, or "bobble head" animals. Pretend pets are some of the most popular characters at all the schools right now and they are available in a variety of sizes. These are adorable little animals that girls of all ages love to collect and carry them with them wherever they go! The smallest ones will make great stocking stuffers and you are sure to be able to find one of her favorite animal! - Pens and pencils don't always spring to mind when you think of great stocking stuffers, personalized pencils with cute erasers are easy to find. You will delight her and supply her with needed school supplies at the same time. Matching stick-it notes or a personalized memo pad make great additions as well. - Lip balm has come a long way from just a tube of wax you put on your mouth to prevent chapping. Now, you can get soda flavored ones, glittery ones, and many, many others. They are lots of fun and practical, too! Add one, or add a dozen to her stocking this Christmas. - Socks that feature her favorite past-time or her favorite animal or that just suit her individual style make a fun addition as well. - Charm bracelets are still a favorite of girls and they give you something to fall back on when you can't think of a gift for another occasion. There is always room for one more charm. If you are including a charm by itself, make sure you put it in a little box or bag—otherwise it may be overlooked or lost in the "toe" of the stocking! - Get her a watch with her favorite character (for younger girls) or a grown up "irst real watch" if she is twelve or older. - Go to your local dollar or craft store to find the miniature versions of some old favorites. Etch-a-sketch is one of the popular games and so is the Fishing Game. You can also find little dolls or figurines that are inexpensive but adorable! - A cute flash drive is one of the hot accessories for tweens and teens and you can find collectibles that she can use every day. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes including animals and other fun shapes! - There are now text and chat toys that require no monthly fees or service plans for them to communicate with friends with the same device within a certain area. - A mini digital camera will help her improve her photography skills while taking shots of all of her friends! - Stickers and scrapbook items featuring favorite items are fun to include—especially if one of her "main" presents is a camera or scrapbook. Take the time to fill her stocking with an assortment of fun and clever items, and she will be delighted on Christmas morning.
