What are your kids' small gifts and/or stocking stuffers this year?

Genders and ages might help ;o). I'm trying to decide if I should go with our usuals or totally change it up (they always get socks, underwear, and coloring books, among other things).

  • I found mini ugg boot keychains for the teen girls. I also found really cool flip flops for them on a major sale in a cool boutique.

  • For my preschooler, a couple of books of mazes, which she loves to do. A package of Reese's Peanut Butter Bells. I want to find some tiny berettes for her My Little Ponies, but either I'm not describing them right, or they aren't in the stores. Nobody has managed to locate any for me.

    For my stepson, so far just Angry Birds boxers, but I need to come up with some more stuff.

  • for my 8 year old, light that goes on the top of the head, a musical toothbrush, cherry mashes, a couple of sets of markers/drawing pens.
    for my 14 year old, a pair of stud earrings and a certificate to get them pierced, she has been waiting forever! She is also getting a phone with strict limits and no texting option, I am sure the no texting will make her have a crying fit, lol

  • I have 2 four-year-old boys who will get things like cotton ragg socks, small wooden train whistles, slide whistles, finger cymbals, maracas, some boxes of band-aids (they love them, lol), a candy cane, a few pieces of chocolate, small trucks & a toy school bus, wind-up robots, and bird whistles (the kind you fill with water & they warble) I had a $40 gift certificate at Land Of Nod and put some of it toward small instruments & toys as stocking stuffers.

    I have an 8 year old girl who will get some candy, knee high socks, a bird whistle, small flashlight, some barrettes & hair clips, and some small things I've been saving (some since Cyber Monday sales LAST year, lol) like doll-sized backpack/school books/pencil case, doll-sized sleeping bag, and some ornaments/keychains I've picked up that are doll-sized things she can use as doll props (like a Starbucks hot cup & a small "milkshake," a mini Ugly doll, mini Etch-A-Sketch...)
