The joy of waking up to a stocking filled with goodies is one of the greatest pleasures of Christmas morning. Bring that magic to life for your little girl by filling her stocking with all the treats and treasures she desires. Even if you’re on a budget, there are plenty of inexpensive stocking stuffer ideas for little girls. With stocking stuffers this good, your little girl will think Mommy, I mean Santa, has some pretty good taste!
Little girls love to do grown-up girl things like paint their finger and toe nails. Give your little girl some inexpensive nail polish of her own and she will feel unbelievably mature. Find the shades that suit her individual style, be it an innocent pearly pink, a wild and glittery purple or a wacky lime green. Wet n wild® makes many fun, youthful shades for under $1 a bottle.
Dollar Store Toys
Load up her stocking with some inexpensive toys from a dollar store. You can find small stuffed animals, art supplies, coloring books, play jewelry, doll clothing, board games and more. Buy the bulk of her toys here and you will not have to splurge on too many larger items.
An inexpensive fashion doll will be a welcome addition to your little girl’s expensive collection of Bratz and Barbies. Most little girls will not really know the difference between an inexpensive discount doll and those pricey name brand babes. Look at discount stores or even dollars stores to find these dolls and their must-have outfits and accessories.
Girls just want to have fun, and nothing’s more fun than sweet, sweet candy. Give her the fun girly treats she loves, like Ring Pops, Bubble Tape, Jelly Bellies, Strawberry Puffs and BlowPops. She’ll feel sweet as sugar when she sees these goodies in her stocking.
Starbucks Gift Card
Remember what I said about little girls wanting to act like grown up girls? Well, it doesn’t get much more grown up than having that morning cup of joe. Of course, she’ll probably pass on the coffee in lieu of a hot chocolate or Strawberries & Creme Frappuccino® , but having her own Starbucks card will make her feel too cool. Just $5 on her card is enough to make her feel special when she gets to pay for her own drink the next time you stop for coffee.
The drugstore aisles are full of fun-flavored inexpensive lip balms and glosses that are perfect for little girls. Bonne Bell is the maker of the famous Lip Smackers line, featuring fun flavors like cotton candy, strawberry and bubble gum. Whatever brand you get, make sure it is not too sticky or darkly colored, or she will look overly made up.
Socks are a very practical gift, but for style-conscious little girls, they can also be a fun fashion accessory. Go to a last year’s fashion mistakes store, such as T.J. Maxx or Ross, where you can find knee high socks with stripes, polka dots and other patterns.
