Christmas is just a few days away, which means you have probably finished all of your gift shopping by now. The last thing on the list when it comes to shopping is usually picking out the stocking stuffers (to give Santa a little help). Stocking stuffers usually end up being a bunch of candy or little toys you find at the end of the aisle. We have some convenient stocking stuffer ideas that you can still find at your local drugstore or grocery store, however these stuffers are also healthy for the smile. The dental team at Children’s Dental in Galveston, TX is here to help your family get their smiles in good health.
Fun New Toothpaste
Let’s face it – when you walk through the oral care aisles at the store, they are filled with bright colors and cartoon characters. Stock up for 2019 on new toothpaste, toothbrushes, floss, mouthwash (a non-alcoholic variety) in full size or travel sizes to fill up a stocking. Your kids might just be as impressed with strawberry-flavored floss as a candy bar.
A Reusable Water Bottle
Having a reusable water bottle promotes hydration. Getting your child one that they will feel proud or excited to carry around will help them want to stay hydrated. Get a little bottle that fits in their lunchbox or backpack. Pick it out in their favorite color or one with their favorite characters on it.
Sugarless gum can be a friend to the smile. It can promote saliva production after meals to rinse away harmful bacteria. If picking between a bunch of candy or some packs of sugarless gum, go with the gum. It even comes in fun, interesting flavors now so it can provide some pizzazz to the stocking.
