Surprizamals are just the right size to slip into a stocking! They’re small red spheres that, when opened, reveal (surprise!) a stuffed animal! Surprizamals are $4.99
Similar to stress balls, Squishies are shaped like every day (and not so every day) objects not known for their ability to be squeezed like hamburgers, sushi, and ice cream cones. Squishies range in cost from $4.99 to $9.99.

Where to shop: The Curiosity Corner Gift Shop is located in the front lobby of the Scott Family Amazeum. (Location is 1009 Museum Way in Bentonville. Phone number is 479-696-9280.) Curiosity Corner is full of hundreds of unique toys and gifts designed to spark kids’ interest in science, art, math, engineering and technology.

One parent can watch the kids play on the tree canopy or in the indoor water experience while the other parent gets some holiday shoppping done.
Another stocking stuffer-sized gift idea: Here’s one more gift idea while you’re at the Amazeum. Consider getting a gift membership for your family. It’s one of those rare gifts that needs no batteries, won’t ever break and keeps the fun going all year.

We think there is something fun about putting socks inside stockings. And there are so many great sock designs to choose from at The Mustache. Their best-selling brands are Blue Q and Sock It To Me. (The pairs shown above are from Sock It To Me.) The blue pair would be great for someone who loves to get outdoors, and the green pair features a banana riding a skateboard. Need we say more? Cost is $11.
Right: Chicago Candle Co. candles
