Stocking Stuffers for Teenagers and College Students

  I have been buying stocking stuffers for teenagers and college students for over 10 years. I have bought every stocking stuffer known to man and have figured out which ones the kids like and which ones they don’t. We have also started a few family traditions, like 2 of the kids want a baggette in their stockings every year. Weird, I know, but we have an amazing bread bakery near us and my kids want their own baggettes for Christmas!! Read on for my best stocking stuffer ideas for teenagers and college students!   Need even more ideas? Christmas Gifts for Everyone on Your List

BANANAGRAMS GAME

My family and kids love the Bananagrams game. We play it a lot over the Christmas holidays. It is a great stocking stuffer because, well, it fits in a stocking and your college student can easily pack it to take back to school.

Give them gloves they won’t have to remove to text – these touchscreen gloves! They are so reasonably priced you can buy them for the whole family. They come in S-XL and in a variety of colors. I just bought a whole mess of them for myself and as stocking stuffers. (I am already wearing mine. They are AWESOME – they are thick and warm and I can actually use my iphone with them!!)
