Whether stocking stuffers are always your first thought or the last thing on your list, finding fun and interesting gifts to fill them up is sometimes a challenge. Of course, there’s always socks and maybe even candy, but this year let’s go beyond the standard stuffer and create a stocking full of creative (and yes, some practical) picks. These thoughtful and unique stocking stuffer gift ideas are a great place to start and are sure to rival the goodies waiting under the tree.
Good Luck Bells
Pewter Guardian Bells come in many intricate designs that can match just about anyone’s interests and hobbies, and they all have one thing in common: extra good luck to whoever receives one. And who wouldn’t want good luck in their stocking?
Never Lose Your Glasses
The perfect gift for the person who is always losing their glasses, this strong magnet-and-steel-clip combo works through clothing to hold glasses right where you want them, so you always know where they are. It works with earbuds and ID badges, too.
A Soothing Swipe For Chapped Lips
Winter and dry lips just go together right? Skip the generic balms and help soothe dry lips and seal in moisture with this set of organic beeswax lip balms. The non-GMO, all-natural ingredients—from the bees to the herbs—are grown on a certified B-Corp family farm and combined into balms that smell, and feel, amazing.
Kids Turn Up The Volume
Brace yourself for incoming cuteness. Beyond looking like a sweet little animal, this kids’ Bluetooth speaker can crank out the tunes. Each speaker is about the size of a golf ball, so it’s perfect for clipping on to backpacks. It even has a wireless selfie remote shutter, built-in mic for phone calls, and optional pairing that lets two speakers create a stereo-sound experience. Go for the whole adorable crew and create a musical zoo.
A Staple-Free Stapler
The biggest drawback of a stapler is when it runs out of staples, which seems to happen mysteriously often. This paper cinch stapler sidesteps the metal and inter-folds pages together to keep things secure and staple-free. It’s a desktop staple for sure.
Key Chain Jewelry Holder
If you’re giving jewelry this year, get a Lion Latch to go with it. This travel jewelry case keeps rings, necklaces, and other small items secure. The lid is locked in place by a key ring that attaches the holder to a bag or backpack, keeping it close at hand and safe all at once.
Pure Catnip Toy Set
Include a feline friend in the gifting spirit with sweet catnip cat toys handcrafted in Maine. They’re filled with pure, natural catnip sourced from Canada. A rabbit fur mouse rounds out the playful set.
Protection for Your AirPods
Keep an Apple AirPods case safe and sound—and in an easy-to-reach spot—with the handy holder from PodPocket. Made of flexible silicone, it fits snugly over the AirPods case and can be attached to a belt, bag, or key chain.
Fill a stocking with finds that are so useful, so helpful, and so appreciated. These unique stocking stuffer gifts prove that good things come in small packages.
