The annual CSP Stocking Stuffer list is here! We absolutely love coming up with this every year. We try to list unique ideas, but we recognize that stocking basics are always appreciated, too – candy, cash, and foil! We would love to hear your ideas on what’s going in your stockings – post ‘em!!
For the kids:
Travel games like Travel Battleship, car bingo, or this Melissa and Doug Bingo game
Got Milk? Magic Milk Straws – a delish and fun way to get a little more calcium in the kids

Playing cards or UNO
Snow hats that look like animals (seen these at Target, Gap, Hannah Anderson catalog)
