What’s In The Kids’ Stockings?


Today’s gifts are exactly what the title implies – choice picks that are usually relatively well-priced (I typically angle for $25 or less) so you can ensure your little ones’ stockings are stuffed without breaking the bank.

Kikkerland Scented ErasersKikkerland Scented Eraser Set – $3.50 @ Above Ground Art Supplies
Assuming children still actually use pencils (and therefore erasers), this set of five pint-sized erasers is too cool for school. Plus, it’s also kind of a crazy good value – consider splitting up the little cartons amongst multiple kids for more bang for your buck.

Fred and Friends Slinky DrinksFred & Friends Slinky Drinks – $10.95 @ ROLO
Kids and digging in the dirt go together well like…these fun-shaped straws and your child’s favourite drink. Designed to emulate gummy worms, these fun straws are made from squirmy silicon for a unique way to ‘play’ with your food.

Q&A A Day For KidsQ&A A Day For Kids – $19.95 @ Room 2046
I have the adult version of this journal and I love it. Each day you’re given a question. You can start on whatever day you receive the journal on – but you’ll answer that same question on that same calendar date for several years in a row. This kid-friendly edition is a cool bedtime ritual that’ll help you keep tabs on the amazing progress your little one is making.

Finger TattoosFinger Tattoos – $7 per set @ Mortimer Snodgrass
It’s not talking to yourself if you’ve got characters tattooed on your fingers, right? These fun, temporary tattoos put story time right into your child’s hands. Available in Farm, Safari, Fairytale and Monster collections.

LEGO Creator Red ThunderLEGO Creator Red Thunder – $6.95 @ Mastermind Toys
My husband laments that LEGO doesn’t encourage creativity the way it once used to – but the fact this tiny box actually contains 3 toys in 1 impresses me. Build a helicopter, speedboat, or old-fashioned biplane and watch your kid’s imagination soar.

The DiprThe Dipr – $2.99 each
It’s practically scientific fact that children love to dunk their sandwich cookies in milk. However, when you think about where those grubby paws have been, you may wince at the idea of them tainting both their snacks and their milk. The Dipr is an innovative ‘spoon’ that’s specifically designed to hook around your favourite cookies for easy dunking and devouring. Available in five colours, it’s a cute treat when accompanied by a bag of limited edition holiday cookies.

Where's Waldo Magnificent Mini Box SetWhere’s Waldo? The Magnificent Mini Box Set – $14.43 @ Indigo
As if finding that bespectacled, stripes-wearing man wasn’t hard enough! This petite gift set includes five Where’s Waldo? books in miniature form, along with a striped magnifying glass you have some chance of spotting the elusive globetrotter. A cool throwback pick that kids today will still get a kick out of.

Anna and Elsa Hair Clips and Bracelet SetFrozen Anna and Elsa Bracelet and Hair Clips Set – $9.95 @ The Disney Store
The latest Disney animated film Frozen has quickly won over young fans and old critics alike. Treat your little would-be princess to a bit of ‘ice’ in the form of this glittering teal bracelet and set of wintery hair clips featuring the film’s royal heroines, Anna and Elsa.

Mala Watercolour Box

MÅLA Watercolour Box – $9.99 @ IKEA
You’ll never know if you’ve got a budding Picasso on your hands unless you give them the tools to express their creativity. This cute paint set includes a rainbow of colours, two brushes, and two water cups for your little ones to concoct their first (or fiftieth) creations.

Laser LacesLaser Laces – $18.95 @ AGO
How’s this for motivation to learn how to tie up your shoes? These fiber optic shoelaces have three different settings (on, flash, and double flash) for an update on those light-up shoes that have been oh-so-trendy over the last few years.
