Clutter Free Stocking Stuffer Ideas

Clutter-Free Stocking Stuffer Ideas

Despite my continuing efforts to declutter and simplify our home, I recently found myself shopping for random stocking stuffers for my three kids.


I felt the need, the habit, to buy some knick-knacks just to fill up their Christmas stockings. That would cost money and likely become clutter in our home within an hour of my kids opening them.

And I did not like this thought. It’s taken a long time to reduce the clutter in our home and I really don’t want it getting bad again come Christmas.

I’m not being a Grinch, I simply mean the cheap and nasty, dispensable type gifts that are commonly used for the sole purpose of filling up the Christmas stockings.

So with this in mind, I’ve collated a list of clutter-free stocking stuffer ideas, all that are still low-cost, can be used or consumed, but will not become random clutter!  

I’ve tried to really think of each person I’m buying for, and to think of what they:

  • Use often,
  • Don’t necessarily treat themselves to,
  • Will use in the near future,
  • Can experience

Clutter free stocking stuffer ideas:

  • Foldable, reusable bag for shopping
  • Mints
  • Batteries
