Dollar Tree is a store that is relatively new to my small community. I don’t shop there often, but when I do I always seem to find something great.
Last Easter I was able to fill the kids’ Easter baskets with lots of fun stuff from Dollar Tree without breaking the bank, so I went back to find stocking stuffers for my kids and my nieces and nephews.
Stocking stuffers are fun to shop for, but little stuff can add up quickly. I found some cute stuff that isn’t just junk, plus I only spent $23.00 for four kids (plus a couple items for myself).
The Best Dollar Tree Stocking Stuffers- That Aren’t Junk!
These silicone utensils were perfect to add to my sister, my mom, and my college-aged niece’s stockings.
There was a wide selection of fun coffee mugs that I also picked up.
Small snack containers are always useful to Pack in lunch boxes, book bags, or purses. Plus, the lock-top ones at the top of the photo below are just the right size to hold a deck of cards, which is handy to keep cards in after kids inevitably tear the card boxes.
I am a sucker for stationery and there were tons of cute matching sets, as well as other fun journals, planners, and blank notebooks, etc.
I found a bunch of cute socks with fun prints like tacos, pizza, cupcakes, unicorns, hearts, stripes, and more.
In the cosmetics and bath aisle, there were lots of fun brushes, loofahs, and all kinds of body products.
There were several fun themed character nightlights.
These adorable little zippered bags with llama prints would make cute coin purses, could hold barrettes, bobby pins, or hair ties, and many other things.
I found quite a few cute pencil cases, the ones below are my favorites.
Dollar Tree has a nice selection of coloring books, puzzle books, activity books, and others. You can’t beat a color book for a dollar.
There are tons of Crayola brand items, from paint, crayons, markers, suncatcher kits, painting kits, educational materials, to bath products.
I got these Winnie the Pooh flash cards for my son, but there was a large selection featuring different cartoon characters and different subjects. I picked out simple addition and phonics for my daughter.
My nieces can’t get enough of gel pens and the like, so I thought they would like these sparkly glitter ones.
My son is getting into superheroes and I thought these small figurines would be perfect for him, as they have no moving parts that could break (and possibly be swallowed).
The Brush Buddies toothbrush/cup sets were too cute to pass up. There are other cute sets to choose from.
Fire trucks, tow trucks, ambulances, and more would make fun additions to stockings for kids who love to play with vehicles.
Dollar Tree has tons of puzzles. These small puzzles come in a tin, but there are many others of different sizes and motifs.
Small games are a good option for bigger kids. I thought my nephew would enjoy this one.
Well, what do you think? I will probably throw in a little candy, but I can check a few items off of my to-do list!
What are your go-to stocking stuffers at Christmas? How much do you normally spend?
I would love to hear from you!
