The Best Stocking Stuffers for Babies, Kids and Teens
From your youngest to oldest, we've pulled together the ultimate gift guide for stuffing your kids' stockings this season.
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'm prepared with fun ideas for my elementary-aged kids, as well as essentials for all my nieces and nephews. These age-specific gifts are just right for every kid — from baby to teen — in your life. Here's to the year of planning the best stockings ever.

Best Stocking Stuffers for Tweens
Our in-between kiddos and teens need a merry mix of independent and social gifts: friendship bracelets and Scratch Art notes to share with their buddies, a sweet card game to play with the family, a crystal-growing hedgehog and a Tamagotchi digital pet to take care of on their own.
