The Stocking Stuffers I Bought my Daughters for 2023

I always enjoy seeing what others buy their kids for Christmas. Especially stocking stuffers. So I thought it would be fun to share what we bought our daughters this year!

I find it can be so easy to buy little things just for the sake of filling the stockings.

Over the years, I have found myself becoming more intentional with what I buy. I like to buy some practical items, consumable items and just for fun items.

How do you like to fill stockings?

In the past, I have done almost identical things for both of my daughters. However, this year, they have significantly different likes. (The almost 12 year old is waaay over toys. haha!)

Without further ado, here are the items I bought for my daughters. Age 7 and age 11.

For my 7 year old daughter:

For my 11 year old daughter:

There you have it! I think I did pretty good this year. I think they will enjoy everything!

If you are looking for other stocking stuffer ideas, I compiled a couple of lists for you:
