Great Stocking Stuffers for Teens

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that Santa would leave sweet treasures in there!

Choosing Christmas stocking stuffers for teens in my family is one of my favorite things to do all year. These small and simple gifts can be the best things about the holidays!

I spend lots of time thinking about each person and coming up with stocking stuffer ideas that fit their personality; from my gadget-loving husband to my video game-obsessed teen son to my glitter-obsessed tween daughter, I get to think about the very things I love about their personalities and find little trinkets they will treasure.

As you can see, we take out stockings very seriously around here!

The teen years can be the toughest years, as teens are spending more and more time with their friends and less time communicating with their parents. Gone are the days of mile-long lists and bouncy visits to Santa’s house. Gone are the days when wrapping up a tiny stuffed animal was all it took to get that crooked-toothed grin.

These days they want bigger, shinier, and more connected things, and we get bouncy visits to their bedrooms with their game consoles and phones in hand.

So, in preparation for this holiday season, I have compiled a list of teenager-approved stocking stuffer ideas for teens. There are stocking stuffers for teen boys and stocking stuffer ideas for teen girls, all of which have been approved by my own angsty teens. I guarantee you will find something on this list to please yours, too!

Expert Tips for Stuffing Stockings

  • Try to keep to a budget it’s easy to go overboard filling stockings.
  • Collect small trinkets year round. I have a big box where I toss makeup samples and other things that I get for free or cheap.
  • Splurge on a few things, but mostly keep items to under $5.
  • Keep the size of your stockings in mind. I’ve purchased things that I thought would fit and then actually didn’t. Keep a stocking in that box so you can see if things will fit.
  • As you collect them, store items for each recipient in separate boxes or bags. Cut tags, remove packaging, add batteries, and all other prep work before the big night. This makes things much easier on Christmas Eve!
  • Create traditions – my kids know there will be a chocolate Santa and a Christmas ornament in their stocking every year, and they can’t wait to see what I picked out for them.
  • FAVORITES LISTS! Have your kids fill out a list with their favorite scents, candy, flavors, etc to help you in your quest. Our Free Printable Christmas Planner has a blank (and totally adorable) wish list, plus shopping lists galore to keep you organized.

Do You Wrap Presents in a Stocking?

You don’t need to wrap anything that goes into a stocking unless you really want to. The best part is the stockings are the wrap!

We usually open our stockings last, after the gifts under the tree.
