The Best Advent Calendar Stuffers

AdventCalendarStuffers Advent calendars are one of our favorite Christmas traditions, but finding creative ways to fill each pocket can become a tough task! We’ve made it easier with our favorite picks for stuffers that don’t involve sugar – and they’ll delight your little one each day leading up to Christmas.


Tiny holiday ornaments like a plush reindeer ornament are a festive way to get little ones excited for decorating the tree.


We love a stuffer that makes little ones chuckle and this Melting Snowman is a hoot! Form him, dress him and watch him melt right before your eyes.


Put a handmade touch on stuffers with creative DIY ideas. Our favorite? These Handmade Charlotte Forest Finger Puppets that can be crafted in a variety of friendly creatures.


Transform bathtime into playtime with a Wind-up Shark, Fireboat or Set of Squrties. These little critters are the perfect size for advent calendar pockets – and they’ll be loved year-round.


Encourage creativity in tiny artists with a Mini Etch A Sketch or set of colored pencils. You’ll have new works of art to view all winter long!


If you have larger gifts that don’t fit in the pockets, create a fun treasure hunt for your little ones by hiding gifts throughout the home. We love this idea from Perfectly Imperfect because it keeps kids active on snowy days!
