One thing I’ve realized as our girls grow, is that the little things are often the most meaningful in our house.

The same goes for stocking fillers – those tiny items tend to be the ones they love the most. And I love the challenge of finding items they will love, without worrying that I’m buying disposable little dollar store trinkets that quickly find their way to the trash.

I love gifts that feel handmade, personalized, and intentional. In fact, I’ve shared a variety of gift guides sure to inspire every buyer and recipient. I’ve already covered gifts for bakers and a round up of 25 homemade gifts.

My ultimate Christmas gift guide is a reader favorite year after year! Broken into categories for everyone on your list, it’s easy to find something fresh and new that they are sure to love.

Today we’re concentrating on the small stuff, for the people on your list who can be a little more difficult to shop for: teenagers!

Teenage Stocking Stuffer Ideas

Teenagers can be tough to buy for! Even though they often have a list a mile long, it’s not always very practical (or attainable!).

This list can help you weed through all the strange items often suggested by retailers. You can head straight to the good stuff instead of spending all your time wondering if they really want those random little fidget toys!

Much like any gift idea, these can all be customized to the people you’re buying for. Everyone is different and will have unique needs and ideas. Get creative! Think art supplies for your artsy kids, sports stuff for the sporty ones and music items for the musicians in your life.

  • Do a few practical items, and a few fun things. You know the old adage – something you want, something you need, something to wear, something to read! The same goes for stocking fillers for teenagers, of course.
  • Ask their friends! Sometimes their BFFs will have the best ideas of all.
  • Keep your stocking sizes in mind. It’s easy to overbuy and overestimate, and items won’t make it inside.
  • Watch a few TikTok videos for ideas – yes, seriously! That’s where their best gift requests tend to come from.
  • Don’t skip my favorite experience gift ideas, too. I promise they will love them!

The best part? Many of these stocking stuffers ship FAST!
