10 Stocking Stuffers Your Dentist Would Approve Of

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! And that means the crazy Christmas gift shopping has ensued and you are trying to find the perfect gifts for your kiddos.

One thing that a lot of people tend to wait until the last minute on is stocking stuffers. If that’s the case for you, let us help you get started on that a little sooner this year. You’ll find the items on this list are going to cause fewer sugar rushes and more joy when your sweet little ones open their stockings Christmas morning. Even your dentist will approve!

Small Stuffed Animal

Stuffed animals are so much better than candy! And they last longer too! Get your child their favorite animal in the form of a small stuffy and they won’t let go of it for days. Some popular brands you can try are Beanie Boos, Russ, and Aurora.

Mini Sketchpad and Pencils

Do you have kids who love to draw? Find some mine sketchpads or notepads to fill their stockings with. Add in some colored pencils, crayons, pens, or markers to go with it. This is sure to keep them occupied, at least for a little while.


As much as parents might not love them, kids really do love stickers. And there are so many types to choose from. Find some stickers in your child’s favorite cartoon character or animal. To try to prevent them from ending up on clothes in the washer, encourage your children to use the stickers in their mini notepads.


Bubbles are always fun for little kids. Running around and popping the bubbles that they made can be fun for the whole family (parents and pets included). And now you can even find spill-proof bubble containers that make their playing a little less messy.

Bath Paints

Another great one for little kids – bath paints. Find your child’s favorite color, or get an assortment of colors, and toss them into the stocking. This fun gift will get your child excited for bath time, and it’s not candy? Win, win!


No matter your child’s age, a book is the perfect stocking stuffer. Board books are great for toddlers, and you can always find small picture or chapter books for kids that are older. If you’re not sure what books your kids like, have them make a list of their favorite books, or types of books, to give you a place to start.

Gift Cards

This stocking stuffer is definitely meant for older children, and sometimes feels lame to give, but you know that they love it. Teenagers and adult children enjoy getting free money that they have to spend on something they enjoy – so find a gift card to their favorite store or restaurant.

Phone Case

Another one for the teens, new phone cases are always nice – especially with how quickly they seem to get worn down. Ask for favorite colors, animals, or sports teams to find the perfect phone case to add to your child’s stocking.


These are great for your tween, teenage and adult girls, and even for the boys if it’s more neutral in the scent. Everyone needs protection against dry skin!


Socks seem to be the butt of bad gift jokes, but they really can be a great gift, and they are the perfect size for stockings. Find fun colors and characters for younger kids, and get the nice wool socks or fun fuzzy ones for older children.
If you want some more ideas for dentist-approved stocking stuffers, just ask a dentist like those at The Village Dental Center for some advice. They’ll point you in the right direction for the best dental gifts to give.
