It’s almost a matter of days before Christmas, and if you’re looking for the best last-minute stocking fillers for kids that will be delivered by 25 December, we’ve come to the rescue.
Whether you’re just putting the final touches on wrapping up your gift list before the big day, or you’re only getting started hunting for last-minute Christmas gifts (no judging here!), this gift guide of some of the best stocking fillers for girls and boys that you can shop right now will definitely be of help.
What to put in as stocking fillers for kids
Think about what the kid on your gift list loves – and then think small! If they love some of 2021's hottest toys, like LOL Surprise dolls, Disney or Paw Patrol, look for the smaller figures or accesories. If they love to play sport, go for stocking fillers related to their favourite teams – like stationery, hats or gloves – or the smaller sized equipment, like mini footballs, so they can play their fave sport.
retty much anything goes, as long as it fits in their stocking and, generally, is at a reasonable price point. We've kept our list under £15.
We’ve included the last-minute delivery dates for gifts to arrive before Christmas. But with complicated delivery this year, with volume and COVID-related delays for many retailers, nothing is guaranteed – it's best to get shopping ASAP!
