#PowerTheHolidays With These Stocking Stuffer Ideas!

I was walking through the store the other day, shopping for weekly groceries and listening to my kids ooh and ahh over all the things they want to put on their Christmas wish list.

My immediate thought was just to buy them huge packs of batteries and give it as their gift. Not because I'm M.O.M (Mean ole Mom), but because they use up so many batteries in their toys! I cringe when I hear a request for new batteries. Those things are expensive!

I want solar batteries. I want rechargeables galore!

I'm not saying I wont do the battery thing, but I'll just be nice about it and put it as a stocking stuffer :)
Ahh look at you breathe a sigh or relief for my kids. Haha.

Anyway SheSpeaks and Duracell are already cheering my stocking stuffer idea! I received two packs of batteries to use in our electronics. I could use them now or later as stocking stuffers. Guess what I chose to do? haha. You know it!

Have you thought about what gifts you are going to purchase that will need batteries?
When you purchase electronic gifts this season, if you can afford it, definitely add some batteries in there.

Duracell Coppertop AA Batteries in a Doublewide pack deliver efficient and reliable power in popular battery powered devices such as toys, Wii remotes, portable gaming systems, smoke alarms, clocks and radios. Use them in all of your devices and enjoy the fact that they are long-lasting. The Duracell AA batteries come in 16 count pack to provide plenty of power.

My son has his play time on the game remote and other toys that need batteries. My daughter has her computer she received for her birthday, and every so often she needs batteries. And of course my camera requires a good set of batteries to operate for awhile without constantly shutting off.

As a household, many things here require batteries every so often!

Not only do you need batteries for electronic toys, you still need to keep your flashlights and other household items up-to-date in cases of emergencies! Speaking of emergency: Do not forget to change your smoke alarm batteries! You should have done that during the time change, but if you didn't, here's a kindly reminder.

Most of us will be traveling this holiday season. Pack your duracell batteries for emergencies while out on the roadways. My emergency radio, flashlights and back up batteries are always with me!
Never run out of power with the Duracell Coppertop AA Alkaline Batteries. These Duracell Coppertop Batteries are the ideal choice for toys, radios and other electronics that will see a lot of use. Just pop in the 4 count Duracell Coppertop Alkaline Batteries and you are ready to go for hours of entertainment and fun.

  1. We always do a yankee swap with the adults at Christmas and there are a few people that bring packs of batteries to the swap. They are very highly coveted.

    1. Ahh so they do work :)
      I love this yankee swap idea!

  2. Those are some great ideas. I am always looking for ideas for stocking stuffers.

  3. I need to stock up on batteries for Christmas, never thought about batteries alone being good stocking stuffers, but it makes sense.

  4. We need to buy stock in battiers like this. Everything we get need AA!

  5. We always give batteries along with the gift if it requires batteries.

  6. It always sucks when you open a gift that needs batteries and there aren't any! Great gift idea.

  7. My daughter likes beef jerkey in her stocking. It makes me laugh. I always give batteries if I give a gift that requires them. The gift's not so exciting if they can't use it right away. ;)

    1. That is quite unique and funny Rosey :)

  8. I usually give batteries with gifts for children so they can use the toys right away. Or if I am buying a bunch of toys, I will give the parents a "gift" of a large pack of batteries!

  9. Batteries are always in demand at our house year round. When they go on sale I stock up.

    1. Sad thing is when they go on sale, I usually don't have the budget. haha

  10. So true! Batteries are always a needed thing and perfect for the stocking.

  11. Duracell is my go to battery. It seems like everything takes batteries.

  12. A great stocking stuffer! Nothing is worse than not having the batteries you need on Christmas morning!
