Stocking Stuffers for Teenagers

iTunes Gift Cards

If the teenagers in your house have Apple devices, an iTunes gift card is an easy choice. The only bummer is, it doesn’t take up enough space in that stocking! How about wrapping it in a nice little box?

You can often find iTunes Gift Cards discounted at local stores. Costco offers a deal online and in store. Of course, you could always use my affiliate link and pay full price too;0)


But, of course! What’s your teen’s favorite? No need to go crazy here, just a little will do. Especially if it’s this one pound Hershey’s Bar. Oh my Goodness! Will that even fit in a stocking?

Movie Tickets

Hey, you’re probably gonna head to the movies at some point anyway so you might as well throw the tickets in their stockings too!


Oh yeah! I’m thinking we just might have snow this winter. Fingers crossed! The teenagers have outgrown their snow gear and, guess what, Winter Glovesfill up that stocking quite nicely!

Stocking Stuffers for Teens

Grooming Supplies

It’s time for the teenagers to stop using mom and dad’s grooming supplies and take pride in having their very own! What? What? But these are nicer than mom and dad’s. No Fair!


We tried to go with the cheap drug store earbuds/earphones one year and they didn’t quite cut it. If you’ve used Apple EarPods, you apparently get a little spoiled! Needless to say, it’s hard keeping track of these things and a spare pair is always a blessing!

Video Games

It’s an expensive stocking stuffer and we may have, ahem, wrapped a few in a MUCH bigger box in hopes of filling that space under the tree. Of course, if your space is limited and stockings bare, put that fun video game in the stocking!

How about some specialty socks? These socks by Thorlo are my daughter’s favorite! As a matter of fact, they’re my favorite too!

Fuzzy Socks

Perfect for those cold winter evenings at home!

Wool Socks

Ahhh! I can feel the warmth now! Wool socks are an excellent choice for those chilly days. My teenage daughter borrows mine often because she hates cold toes!

Whew! That’s a whole lot of socks, right there! Isn’t that what stockings are for?

Game Controller

Do you have enough controllers for the whole family to play? Stuff those stockings and get into the game!


Because you just never know when you might need one and, when you do, you’ll be glad you have it!


The duct tape wallet has been through the wash so many times it is actually falling apart. Those things are pretty tough too! Now that we’re growing up, it’s time for a REAL wallet. Hopefully one that will never see the insides of the washing machine. Perfect for the toes of your stocking;0)

Ice Scraper

The permit holding teenager holds some golden opportunities for stocking stuffers! Plush dice anyone? How about a lovely gas card? That gas money is probably coming out of your pocket anyway, so stick it in the stocking! In a box, of course. This ice scraper will fill that stocking nicely AND your teen will be thankful when their windshields are frozen or heaped with snow!


Hopefully this list of stocking stuffers for teenagers has inspired you to get the ball rolling and fill those stockings! From practical to fun and things you probably would have bought anyway. Take it and roll with it!

Are you inspired?

Are you ready to fill those stockings?

    We just wrapped up stocking stuffer shopping last night! It feels great to have the kids 100% done!
    These are great ideas!

    Teenagers! Am I right? I dunno. Anyhoo! Great items, Jayleen! This is the first year I won’t be needing cold weather items (it’s still 80 degrees during the day, 75 at night here), however, I especially like the wallet and flashlight idea. I’ve always thought Christmas was a great time to update practical items. When I was a teenager, Santa would bring me a new light-up makeup mirror each year. I genuinely loved his good sense and great taste! 🙂

      Exactly, Kay! Hey, if we’re buying it anyway, might as well fill those stockings up! Practical gifts are the best kind … except … the hubby wants to buy me a new ironing board to iron HIS clothes on. That’s where I draw the line;0) Lol! Enjoy that sunshine!
