Holiday 2017: Stocking stuffers for the kids

Gifts they'll be stoked on all year long.

Getting gifts the kids will love is a game where strategy and wit outweigh all other elements. This is serious business people.

That’s why we’ve put together this list of stocking stuffers for the kids this holiday -- just in case the pressure is getting to you.

Patagonia Baby Furry Friends Hat ($29)

Parents, this one might be more for you than it is for the kiddo. Sure, it’ll keep their head nice and toasty, but the real appeal of this thing is that it’s so darn cute. Doesn’t hurt that it’s got double-layer fabric at the hem for extra warmth, which means your little polar bear cub will be wearing this all winter long.

Strider Half Finger Gloves ($20)

Consider these a permanent staple in your child's wardrobe until they grow out of them. Photo: Strider

Safe and cute, your kid won’t want to take these off. EVER. Not only do they improve grip on the Strider handlebars (and all handlebars in general), the half-finger design will have your little ripper obsessing over them long after they’ve gotten off the bike.

Stance Roman Box Set (6-12 MO) ($35)

Six unique styles will keep your kids happy and their toes toasty. Photo: Stance

The only thing better than cozy socks are cozy socks that look awesome. Take this stocking staple up a notch this year with Stance’s Roman Box Set, featuring six unique designs that will make picking out socks in the morning a breeze.

Although these are technically for an infant boy, the designs could easily by rocked by your little girl as well, depending on her aesthetic.

Black Diamond Wiz Headlamp ($20)

Little size, full power. The Wiz Headlamp features kid-friendly design aspects like an elastic safety strap, child-safe screw closure, and an auto-shut off mode after two hours (a very important feature for kiddos that don’t quite grasp the concept of on/off yet).

Low burn time, the headlamp lasts for 120 hours. High burn time, the Wiz lasts for 20 hours, so either way, the little ones are covered even if they do keep the headlamp on as long as possible.

Vans x Peanuts Slip On ($42)

Here’s the right way to introduce your kids to the Peanuts. Photo: Vans

These will certainly fit in the stocking, with careful gift organization. Even if they take up a bit more room than your typical stocking stuffer, they are oh-so worth it.

Peanuts are iconic, no matter your age, and these slip-ons will hold up until your child has literally grown out of them.
