When it comes to Christmas shopping, I can check the big items off my list pretty quickly. However, every year I seem to forget stocking stuffers until the last minute, so my kids' stockings end up being a jumble of randomness.

This season, I love the idea of creating a theme to work around and filling their stockings with buys tailored to their specific personalities. My oldest, the reader, is loving the Who Was? series and I'm eyeing the miniature library I found (scroll to the end!). My youngest, the artist, will have a stocking filled with colored pencils, sketchbooks and other creative endeavors.

Here's to the year of planning the best stockings ever.

This knit stocking, trimmed in faux fur and with sweet pom-poms, is a classic that will easily grow with your kiddo. When filling stockings for your littlest ones, look for adorable teethers, engaging baby toys (we can't get over how cute the sunny-side up crinkle toy is) and fun-to-read board books.

Displaying traditional holiday hues in a playful manner, this pom-pom-laden stocking was made for your art-loving kid. Let creativity reign supreme with their stocking stuffers. Try a mini weaving kit, pom-pom art or activity papers. And, of course, don't forget blank journals and drawing tools for their most imaginative moments.

Completely fuzzy with metallic threads woven throughout, this stocking is totally of the moment. Even our young ones would love a day at the spa, so create a stocking filled with little moments of pampering: bath bombs, cozy socks and pretty hair accessories.

This felt stocking is pure magic with a festive snowman applique. Grab a collection of games they can play by themselves and with family, as well as creative puzzles that will keep the fun going long after Christmas morning.

As if it came right out of a storybook, this screen-printed stocking features a whimsical black-and-gold illustration. Stick beloved stories (The Rabbit Listened is one of our faves) and books about historical figures in your wordsmith's stocking. And be sure to check out the miniature library, which allows your child to create her own little bookcase complete with 30 tiny volumes.
