With so much thought put into the “big gifts” for kids, stocking stuffers aren’t exactly at the top of anyone’s must-get list. However, these little gifts if they’re chosen well are often the ones kids get a real kick out of.

Just remember the best ones are inexpensive and need to deliver large on fun or laughs! Here’s the best ones we’ve rounded up for under $25.

Fill and tie 100 water balloons in less than 60 seconds. Simply connect to a tap or a hose, fill and make hundreds of water balloons with no hand-tying. These ones also fill with a spark of colour for an extra special crazy time.

For laugh out loud fun, prank your family and friends with this fart firing blaster. Just draw the plunger back with one hand while holding the handle with the other. You can also vary your farts by the speed you push the plunger in!

  • Water Balloons are the best! Great for cheap, home holiday fun in sunny Australia.


  • There are so many toys out there. They possibly don’t need more, but they always seem to love getting them.


  • Thanks for the ideas! The robofish looks awesome! My son would love that.


  • I have a robo fish for my daughters stocking and I got an lol doll for $9 and some kids snap cards for $5 I like all these ideas


  • Kids will love these ideas for good for pocket too.


  • As a grandparent I think I’d rather help stuff their stockings with some more useful items. We are so much more mindful of plastic waste these days and so many toys will ultimately end in landfill.


  • It seems like such a waste to buy small thoughtless gifts (both monetary and environmental wastes)

    • I never really understood the point of stocking stuffers? As a kid I always seen it as pointless junk.


  • It seems to me like stocking stuffers are getting more expensive these days.


  • Some good ideas here. Always have bunch o balloons on hand over summer


  • Those $8 mini collectables are actually quite cute. I’ve bought a few.


  • Apart from a couple of boxes of chocolates, I’ve done my Christmas shopping. Hooray!


  • thanks for the ideas. love suggestions like these as it seems harder and harder to think of ideas.


  • That bunch of balloons thing sounds pretty awesome!


  • Water balloons sound like fun, but collectibles are still a hit for the little people I buy for. The really big Barbie dolls, Minnie Mouse, the Marble Rush sets and the learning toys from LeapFrog are always good as they last a long time and can double up for back to school.


  • My daughter love the surprise eggs, so planing to get some this year due to budget constraints. Saw some out there for $4.50
