Scavenger Hunt Makes a Cool Stocking Stuffer Idea!
I bought Travel Scavenger hunt for my boys because we had to take a long trip, but what’s cool about this game is you can play for shorter car trips – and we do! Any time we are going somewhere that takes more than 10-15 minutes, my kids bust out the cards from this game.
It has cool landmarks and different things like cars, signs, etc that you find while in the car traveling.
It’s actually made our car rides a lot more pleasurable than they used to be. Rather than fight, the boys look for the thing on the card and that keeps them busy til we get where we’re going. Great stocking stuffer idea, it fits perfectly inside!
Phone Stands are a Huge Hit with Tween Boys!
My son always uses his phone stand because he likes to watch video tutorials on YouTube for drawing. He stands his phone up in the phone stand and the draws along with the tutorial on the screen. These phone stands are really handy if you’re watching something on the screen, the PopSockets double as a grip too, which is nice because you can hold the phone in your hand without having to hold it per say.
USB Cable Protectors Make Great Stocking Stuffers
These little usb cable protectors are great because they keep your cable from bending and breaking in vulnerable areas.
