If you're a last-minute shopper (like me), you'll be relieved to know that there is still time to stuff those stockings with neat, affordable treats for all the kids on your list. Even with 5 kids to shop for this year, we managed to get an assortment of goodies from Walmart to put into the stockings -- all for less than $25!
We loaded up the stockings with mini Play-Doh containers, toothbrushes, nuts, crayons, and candy (we like Wonka's Nerds.) We'll even put an old-fashioned orange into the toe of each stocking. While we tend to keep our stockings simple, they are usually the favorite part of Christmas morning for our kids, and you don't have to go overboard when shopping at Walmart!
Other great ideas that you can buy for less at Walmart include:
- $1 candies (like the Wonka Nerds we mentioned)
- $5 movies in the DVD bins
- $3 Mp3 accessories
- $3 perfume/cologne sets
- $1 toys in the toy aisle (there are some neat little pocket games!)
- Decks of cards
- Office supplies (pens, notepads, and markers)
- Bath products (bubble bath is a big hit at our house!)
Walmart is dedicated to helping families like ours save money so that we can bring home more for less -- and use the money we save for bigger under-the-tree presents or perhaps something else. We are using our money saved on stocking stuffers to help fund all our holiday parties!
How will you "stuff" your stockings for less this year?
