Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Teenage Boys

17 Dec

I would think it really easy to fill a girl’s Christmas stocking — lip gloss, nail polish and those fun scented hand sanitizers.  Pretty much anything in a CVS or Walgreens would work for a girl.  As my beasts have gotten older, I have found it more difficult to find decent stocking stuffers that aren’t real expensive.  So here is a list that will hopefully help other mothers (who are raising beasts of their own) with new ideas to fill the Christmas stocking. By the way, these ideas are in no particular order.

energy chews

An option to gummy chews, but not candy. They contain electrolytes and are great for athletes who do endurance events.

flavored milk straws

These come in tons of flavors and are usually in the grocery stores, Walmart and Target.

meat of any kind

There were a couple of years my eldest literally had meat on his Christmas list… so why not?  Summer sausage or jerky fits in a stocking quite well.

These also have electrolytes in them and are great for long tournament days or meets.

Parenting Tip: And if you want to add something from the heart, you can include a Christmas letter to your beast that tells them all the things they won’t sit still to listen to — how proud you are of them, what you like about their character, how you’ve seen them grow, a specific act they’ve done that you found admirable.  Because at the end of what may have been a trying, frustrating or confusing year — it’s good to be told you’re loved, admired and that Mom sees the positive things too.

Merry Christmas!!
