My absolute favorite thing during Christmas when I was a kid was the stockings.  And into my adult years the love has remained.  I love to get a bunch of little special gifts, all stuffed into a sock.  I love savoring the surprises and always save the stocking for last.

The only thing I love more than getting a stocking stuffed full of surprises is to give one.  I spend much of the holiday season searching out the perfect items to fill stockings for my loved ones.  And I am so excited to pass down the love of stockings to my little ones.

A recent shopping trend has made my love of giving the perfect stocking so much easier and has extended the fun to the entire year!  Subscriptions to curated boxes of goodies (that come each month) are the best way to enjoy a stuffed stocking each month.  And the best option for toddlers is Citrus Lane.

I got my first Citrus Lane box a long time ago when our oldest was around 6 months and enjoyed discovering all the fun surprises of new products for my baby and for me. The toys we got in each box became instant favorites!

I was recently sent a Citrus Lane box to review and tell my readers about and I was not disappointed by what I found inside.  I took a video of me opening the box and discovering each surprise tucked inside. (excuse the awkward) The box I received is representative of the types of boxes they send each month.

The girls loved playing in the bathtub with the fun scrubber squirt toys in our most recent box.  And we have had many a family dance party inspired by the tambourine we received.  The products the Citrus Lane community have reviewed for inclusion in the boxes are always top quality and so much fun!

And now Citrus Lane has created a shop featuring some of the best and most popular products from their boxes so you can purchase them a la carte.  I spent time browsing through their store and put together my dream stocking for our girls.

The Stocking

I love to fill “stockings” that are unique each year.  And mammas like me can always use another container to corral all the stuff our little ones accumulate.  I love 3 Sprouts products and think this elephant basket would be perfect for my youngest!

The Stuffers

Little Snowman Finger Puppet Book from Citrus Lane

A cute book, Little Snowman is always the perfect addition to a stocking.  And this interactive book helps keep little eyes, ears, and hands interested in reading.

Candy Apple Red Leg Warmers from Citrus Lane

Leg warmers are quickly becoming a must have for moms and dads to keep kids warm while making diaper changes much easier.  Since I don’t have to take off pants, my little wiggler can get through a diaper change much faster, so she can be off and running as quick as possible.

Upper & Lowercase ABC Blocks from Citrus Lane

This cute set of blocks will be played with for many years!  They hold such possibility for imaginative play and preschool learning.

Artist's Smock from Citrus Lane

Introducing little ones to art is so important to foster creativity and motor skill development.  I love this artist’s smock.  A must for moms and dads who want to let their little ones create without having to sacrifice clothing to stains.

Water Bugs from Citrus Lane

Bath time is already fun, but adding special toys makes it an adventure and a learning experience.  This cute scooping bath toy from Boon is perfect for developing fine motor skills and turning little ones into fishermen.

Subscription Boxes for Toddlers from #CitrusLaneThe best addition to a tot’s stocking is to keep the fun products coming!  Choose a subscription plan for Citrus Lane from 2 to 6 months to automatically make your favorite toddler’s month with the most innovative and fun toys and products in the coming year.  The boxes usually contain 4 or 5 items that are sure to make your little one smile.
