Holiday Gift Guide 2015 - Stocking Stuffers

Fun and quirky picks for the whole family curated by the That Odd Mom family.


~ Sorry, there are no baby or toddler gifts in this guide. My kids are all 7 and up now I don't want to give my uterus any ideas by browsing adorable things for littles! ~

Need a little help picking out gifts for your family and friends this year? I've picked out some great gifts that will leave your fun and quirky recipient smiling. Whether your shopping for the kids, mom and dad, or the whole family, you will find some great ideas here.

First up, stocking stuffers!

I don't know what stockings in your house look like, but ours are usually stuffed full of useful things like lip balm and hair ties, some yummy chocolate and one or two toys or activities. My stocking stuffers gift guide includes gifts for kids and grown-ups, please don't stick the "Do no harm, but take no shit" magnet in your kids stocking. Though, I'm pretty sure this should be my 10-year-old daughter's motto already!
