12 Great Stocking Stuffers for Boys

Stocking stuffers for boys are some of the most challenging gifts to buy! These 12 ideas will stuff your son's stocking with things he'll love.

stocking stuffers for boys

Stocking stuffers for my sons are usually the last gifts I buy because it's so hard to come up with good ideas. I want to buy things they'll like and use, but I don't want to spend a lot of money.

There's nothing worse than spending money on something you think your kids will like only to have them toss it to the side. I've even bought things that were never even opened!

This year, I searched through several lists of stocking stuffers on Pinterest looking for items that would be awesome for our Cub Scout boys. Things related to Cub Scout activities or that are popular with the first through fifth-grade crowd made the cut.

Most of the items on this list are appropriate for boys AND girls, but a list specifically for Cub Scout girls is coming soon!

Brightly Colored Flashlights
Campfire Nightlight
Lego Batman MiniFig
Pinewood Derby Decals & Stickers
Bicycle Noise Maker - Sounds Like a Motorcycle
