Unique Stocking Stuffer Ideas for 11 Yr Old Boys 2017
I made this list of awesome stocking stuffers for 11 year old boys because I know that there’s people out there who don’t want to buy a bunch of junk! You work hard for your money, so do I and I don’t like the idea of buying cheap things that get tossed in the garbage once the Christmas glam is over. I like buying stocking stuffers for my boys that are actually useful. Imagine that?
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying to break the bank on Stocking stuffers for an 11 year old but you can step it up a couple dollars and actually buy something that is cool, useful and not going to end up in the garbage in a few days. Sure, you can get some candy, put that in the stocking stuffer too, but how about some cool little trinkets that will light up his morning?
Here are some of my favorite stocking stuffers for 11 year old boys that are NOT JUNK! You won’t find a single spinner or fidget on this list because those are hardly unique ideas, you can find them anywhere.
You’ll also find good gift ideas if you’re filling a shoebox for Operation Christmas child for an older boy!

It’s 7″ wide x 6″ tall x 4″ deep – so you may need to take it out of the box to fit it in his stocking but it is very small and very cool! There are five drums and three modes of play packed into this little instrument. They’re definitely not as annoying as an actual set of drums – so that’s good.
Hatching Water Eggs Make the Best Stocking Stuffer Ideas!

We bought this EXACT water bottle for our 11 year old and it’s the BEST! It will fit in a stocking, it’s only 16 ounces – BUT the benefits of it are truly awesome.
It stays cold for hours! The insulated material is the bomb for keeping your drink cold. This thing beats a water bottle any day of the week and it’s got a cool clip on it so it can hang onto a backpack.
It’s 16 ounces but it’s short bottle , it fits perfectly in the side of a backpack in one of those mesh pockets and in a standard cup holder in a car. It’s a 16 ounce container, with some ice, it holds 12 ounces of water that will stay chill all day!

Useful Stocking Stuffers for 11 Year Old Boys
If you have an 11 year old who rides his bike, this is a great stocking stuffer for him. A universal bike mount allows him to attach his phone to his handle bars so he can use his music, phone, GPS, or other apps while riding.
