Cool Stocking Stuffers for Girls
With Christmas, girls stocking fillers are where you get to be creative!
It’s an opportunity to give items that are fun but also practical. Because let’s face it, there are a lot of toys that end up taking up space. (Then, get thrown out months later.) We never want girls stockings stuffers to be part of that, and the following list reflects that!

Useful Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Girls
First, these ideas are practical (yet fun) and become well-used items in a girl’s belongings.
The Wet Brush – These hair brushes WORK LIKE MAGIC in a girl’s wet hair. We also use them for dry hair, and it’s the best brush I’ve found for my girls.

Food – Oranges are traditional, or place a unique treat (like these easy caramels) or a candy cane in the bottom of the stocking for an extra surprise.
Piggy Bank – Help your girl save money but gifting her a small piggy bank, coin purse, or box to keep her coins and dollars safe.
Swimming Goggles – Does your girl like to swim? Make sure she has swim goggles ready to go! Swim flip flops are easy to add too!
