I'd like to start some traditional stocking stuffers (some things-or similar types of things- she can count on getting in her stocking every year) and also some fun stuff, but I need some ideas.<br><br>
So far for her stocking I have some stockmar crayons, finger paints, band-aids, training pants (she has been really interested in the potty lately) and socks, and a little bit of candy, and I plan on putting some fruit in there as well.<br><br>
So what types of things do you usually put in your child's stocking?<br><br>
Thanks!

last year dd was only 6 m. so i pretty much left x-mas up to the in-laws & gp's. this year i'm excited- stockings are my fav. part of christmas. i have a couple of playsilks, and will get some wooden animals and people and food for her kitchen. i'll prob. find more, but these are for sure.

I went to the Dollar Tree. They had some small Bear in the Big Blue House plates (which she needs), we rented the movie from the library that talks about learning to use the potty. So they had a few more things with Bear on it and I got those. Two sets of Bear flashcards, one for opposites and one with letters and words. A Bear book about sharing.<br>
Then a small chocolate Christmas tree. Some hair clips....I think that's it.

little books, bath toys, balls, small stuffed animals.....<br><br>
These are the things that I have for my DS for his stocking and he is just turning one. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>

I have all sorts of hair ribbons and such. Last year I got my 2 1/2 year old at that time a safety scissors. She was using mine from scrapbooking so I figured she deserved her own (with supervision.) She also got some coloring books and colored paper.<br>
I also put in a new toothbrush and kid friendly toothpaste. Also some books, though sometimes they sit above the stockings as they are too heavy to put in.

I'm doing dd's stocking the way my mom always did ours. Her basic list for everyone was:<br><br>
toothbrush<br>
toothpaste<br>
dental floss (colored or flavored for fun)<br>
bubblebath<br>
chapstick<br>
an ornament for the tree<br>
candy<br>
a nectarine<br><br>
Of course everything was in the person's favorite color/flavor/etc. Then she added small age appropriate gifts - toys, books, cd's, jewelery, keychains. Stockings are still one of my favorite things about Christmas. I actually have dd's finished. This year it has a new toothbrush, fluoride-free toothpaste, California Baby bodywash/shampoo and bubble bath, a fairy finger puppet, an ornament, and a small chocolate snowman. I'll add a nectarine a little closer.

I've bought Connor an ornament each year and I put that in his stocking. When he grows up and has his own tree, he'll have a lifetime of Christmas memories to take with him. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
For the fun stuff I got him some Matchbox cars, bathtub crayons, squirty bathtub toys, stickers, and I can't remember what else.<br><br>
The traditional stuff will be the ornament, a toothbrush (DH and I will get one too) an apple and an orange, some fruit snacks (they're a special treat for him) and I'm still trying to figure out more.

Cost Plus usually has wooden toys, Chinese novelties and European chocolates that have been a tradition in my home for a long time. Our family has always stuffed stockings with whole nuts and citrus fruits, as well. Of course, as a kid, the nuts and citrus was pretty frivolous--all I was interested in was the chocolate. Well DUH!
