For baby boys
For the baby's first Christmas, you want to stuff his stocking with little toys and treats, but clothing makes a great stocking stuffer, too. Socks, onesies and baby tees are all small enough to be rolled up and placed at the bottom of baby's stocking. Remember, when shopping for baby boys, everything doesn't have to be blue. If you want to stick to soft pastels, yellow and green are favorites as well. And in the wintertime, you can't go wrong with clothing in darker or bolder shades, from chocolate brown and deep burgundy to turquoise and tangerine.
For little boys
For young boys, add accessories to their stockings that will keep them warm this winter. Start with a pair of cozy gloves or colorful mittens for little ones. Knit flap caps that go over the ears are also fun. Look for animal hats like sock monkey hats or cute bear caps that have ears on top and tie under the neck. Funky socks in cool patterns and fun prints are also ideal stocking stuffers for little boys.
For tween boys
Whether boxers, briefs or boxer briefs, underwear is a fun stocking stuffer for tween boys. It might embarrass them a little, but it's something they need. Graphic tees can fit into a stocking, too. Just roll them up! And don't forget a great pair of shades. Sunglasses aren't just for summertime — they make the perfect gift any time of year, and they're great stocking stuffers for tween boys.
For teen boys
For a teen boy, start with his head and work down to his toes. A beanie is the perfect stocking stuffer for your teenager. Look for knit caps in cool colors from bold brights to classic neutrals. Athletic socks are another fabulous choice for teen boys. If you want to splurge a little bit, you can't go wrong with a nice wristwatch for older teens — even if they do prefer to tell time on the smartphone.
Even if you want to give your son practical stocking stuffers like clothes this year, be sure to throw in a few fun items as well — Matchbox cars, action figures and a couple of candy canes will surely be appreciated by young boys. For tweens and teens, consider slipping in a gift card, a video game or a DVD.
