Stocking Stuffers for New Drivers
Check out these fun and (mostly) practical ideas for teen stocking stuffers – whether your teen owns a car yet, or not.
I love this so much, that I bought several as stocking stuffer gifts last year for Christmas. I think this year? I’m going to get one for myself.
Here's a black one, too:
This is a highly-rated new driver book that is perfect for a teen reader.
It also happens to be a bit more narrow than normal books, so should be able to fit into a stocking.
Topics covered include things like:
- Bare essentials to keep in your car
- Driving in bad weather
- Getting a ticket
I used to collect keychains as a teen and stick them on the back of my backpack…I guess I thought that would make me cool.
Anyway, I would’ve loved to get my hands on this dreamcatcher keychain. So pretty!
Psst: if they don’t own a car yet? No worries – most teens also have a house key they carry around with them.
Can I just say how positively posh and grown-up I would’ve felt as a teen if I had this cool ID case + keychain ring?
It’s also super useful – for high school, and beyond – because you can put your ID and maybe a card or two in there, and keep it all attached to your keys.

Pssst: Like these? Check out my article on gifts for first time car owners.
Here’s the perfect way to warn people (or, to explain sub-par driving moves) that there is a teen driver.
What I love about this? Is that it removes just like a sticky note (don’t get me started on how much I hate stickers on products that leave a sticky residue).
Safety, safety, safety – especially since teen drivers might now be out after dark for their job, or after going to the movies with friends, etc.
I like how this one is rechargeable – so you don’t have to always have oddly-shaped batteries on hand for when it dies.
What a fun (and funny) car window decal for a teen’s vehicle!
9. Teen Lanyard
I’ve always loved lanyards because I like to whip them around (over, and over, and over again).
Here’s a great selection of teen-styled ones!
What teen guy (who happens to love Star Wars) wouldn’t want to hang one of these in his car?
Hint: my husband would looooovvveeee this, too.
While you’re at it…you can deck out their cup holder with a sophisticated-looking set of black Darth Vaders.
Here’s a beautiful, glittery ID badge that also has a keychain on it.
If I got a nickel for every teenager that eventually locks themselves out of their car, or out of their house (myself included)…
This could help.
