Picking out stocking stuffers for my family is one of my favorite things to do before Christmas! I have always loved the Christmas stockings tradition. I remember as a child we would race to open our stockings, and then take a break for a hot drink and coffee cake, before starting on gifts. I like to put in a mixture of nicer small gifts and little trinkets. I always loved getting an orange clementine in my stocking, and that’s a tradition I’m going to continue. (Here’s why we put oranges in stockings at Christmas.) I also like to include at least one favorite candy selection! Here are some ideas for stocking stuffers for big kids, ages 7 to 10 years old.
