10 Crochet Stocking Stuffer Patterns for Kids!

What is more fun than a stocking?? Packed full of tiny gifts and candies for the little ones to “oh” and “ah” over on Christmas morning. I have fond memories of all the cool stuff that my parents were able to find for my stockings. Things I never would have thought of sometimes! Now that I’m a mother myself, I have just as much fun finding the perfect items to fill my own children’s stockings.

Stockings do create a limit on the kind of things you can put in them because of size. Small gifts are easy enough to find but are often cheap, plastic and mass produced. I love finding patterns that I can use to create unique, and most importantly, quality items that might actually last into the new year.

I’ve created a list of 10 crochet patterns that are perfect for stocking stuffers! Get your hooks ready because you’re going to want to make ALL of them, they are just that cute.

This adorable set is so fun! These would make a perfect first Christmas stocking stuffer or what toddler wouldn’t love to match their new frosty friend?? Building snowmen is a such a fun winter activity that all kids love, let them take that with them anywhere with this set.

When I designed the Winter Woodland Puppets I had stocking stuffers in mind! These are great for stockings because they are all three easily going to fit in a stocking, so you get three gifts in one pattern. Get ready for a day of make believe and story telling with these friendly winter inspired animals.

Maybe you’re just looking for a festive way to dress up a gift card for you stockings. This adorable little mitten is the perfect way to give a gift that is useful but also take the time to show them they matter by creating something handmade. Bonus is this can be used as an ornament they can hang on the tree for years to come!

Nothing says holiday season like gingerbread! This little Gingerbread Doll from Ariana Hall Crochet would make the cutest stocking stuffer gift. I love a gift that encourages imaginative play so this pattern caught my eye right away. Lots of make believe adventures to have with your very own Christmas friend!

This Teddy Bear Lovey from EkayG is a perfect stocking stuffer! It’s getting colder and any little one will love to have a snuggly friend to keep them company on winter nights. The smaller version of course is the perfect stuffer size and the great thing about a lovey for a stocking is you can roll or fold them easily, so even that super fun larger size will work!

Another perfect one for the smallest people on your Christmas list, a rattle! This Lion Teething Ring Rattle is sure to be a winner. A Purpose and a Stitch even has a hippo style one available! Fill a whole stocking with these cute little friends this Christmas.

Dress up just got a handmade addition! What kid doesn’t love to play a little make believe, these headbands will be perfect to get the creative play going. The Loopy Lamb has created a cat version and a bear version so there is something for everyone.

These super fun bookmarks are a perfect combo of practicality and fun! Give it to your favorite bookworm or maybe it’s just the fun addition to encourage some more reading in the new year. Make a whole family of bookmarks in different colors so they can have one for all the books they can carry!

Stockings are the perfect way to gift winter accessories to your favorite kiddos! Messy bun beanies are so fun and stylish. Not to mention comfortable! If you’ve got someone in your life that loves their long hair and wants to be able to join in on beanie season, this is the pattern for you!

Maybe a messy bun beanie isn’t your giftee’s speed? The Spencer Beanie from Through The Loop is a perfect gender neutral hat that can be given as a stocking stuffer. The comfy wide brim and simple texture of this crochet pattern will match almost any look and keep the kids in your life stylish!
