Those milk chocolate coins are five inches in diametre, making them legal tender to the tummy only. This would be a fun stocking stuffer for kids and adults alike.

Who doesn't like M&M's? These character containers are just the right size for stocking stuffing. The kids will love them.

Russell Stover usually has two or three different treats at the dollar store that are just the right size for stockings. Look for the marshmallow Santas or billion dollar chocolate bars.

Toys

We've seen these On the Go puzzles at Dollarama for the last few months. Perfect for the kids on your list, they feature favourite cartoon personalities and have between 48 and 100 pieces.

Besides the regular Matchbox and other metal die cast cars Dollarama regularly stocks, we found this car that can be used in conjunction with an iPad game app.

For small kids, having a small stuffed toy poking out of the top of their stockings can be tons of fun. The dollar store has a wide variety of these, including Christmasy ones like this snowman.

Teens

Pop a few small items from the health and beauty aisle into your teenage girl's stocking to make her smile on Christmas morning. Lip gloss, manicure sets, stick-on nails, and perfumed soaps are all fair game.
