10 Affordable Accessories That Make Great Stocking-Stuffers

10 Affordable Accessories That Make Great Stocking-StuffersDo you have that countdown started for Christmas yet? It’s less than a month away and the kids are jumping with excitement already.

Typically, we give our kids one large gift and like to fill out the bottom of the tree with smaller gifts and of course, their stockings, which they open up first.

I am nearly done with all the big shopping for my kids, but it’s always the stocking-stuffers that I seem to leave until the last minute. I want to find things that they will love that won’t break the bank — which is easier to do with three kids.

My kids love to dress up and especially for my girls, accessorizing their outfit (and hair) is something they’ve really taken to. Accessories make great stocking-stuffers because they’re small enough to fit, typically don’t cost an arm and a leg, and kids love them.
