It’s Christmas time, and I’m filled with excitement! Jack just turned 2, so I’ve been thinking more about his stocking this year. I noticed dozens of amazing Dollar Tree toddler stocking stuffer ideas when I was shopping the other day, so today I’m sharing them with you!
This year, I spent $17 on Jack’s stocking stuffers, and he’ll have plenty of wonderful craft items to keep him busy during the cold winter season.
Avoiding Christmas Clutter
Before I share my list, I want to mention clutter, because I know that Christmas can get a little crazy!
Thoughtful gifts pour in from grandmas and grandpas, aunts and uncles, siblings and friends—and they can pile up fast.
Because of this, my husband and I try to be especially intentional about the gifts we pick out. We look for gifts he’ll enjoy that will also encourage his growth and development.
There are lots of sweet deals at Dollar Tree, but there’s also plenty of cheap junk that will clutter up your closets faster than you can say “Jack Frost”!
If you’re like me, and you don’t want a bunch of clutter hanging around indefinitely, then try sticking to more consumable items.
