(NATIONAL) The stocking hung by the fireplace stuffed to the brim with goodies is an iconic symbol of Christmas. They sit there just waiting to be dumped out all over the floor. And be honest: Who wants a pair of white socks or a bag of candy coal? 

These stocking stuffers are sure to bring out a “ho ho ho!” from young and old alike! From tech to coffee to fun and games for kids of all ages, these little packages snuggled deep in a knitted stocking may end up being the most-loved gifts of them all. Plus, they are all around $10, so they won’t break your holiday bank. These trinkets prove that good things still do come in small packages!

Tech Talk

A cell phone stand keeps texts and videos in clear view and them hands-free. Most options are compatible with any smartphone. Plus, the stand keeps cables organized on their desk, kitchen counter, or bedroom nightstand. 

Are they tired of messy fingerprints on their tech gear? A screen cleaning pad is a reusable faux suede cloth sized for home or office use and is perfect for all their touch screen devices. 

Ensure they never misplace their AirPods or headphones again with a carrying case that protects their investment in regular or wireless earphones. Many come in all different shapes, colors, and sizes—so check your local retailer for options and get creative!

Time to Relax

Do they need some relaxation after the hustle and bustle of holiday preparations? A reusable pouch filled with skincare products like facemask and lotions is great for your on-the-go loved one.

Who wouldn’t love luxury soaps? They make for a beautifully packaged gift and come in all sorts of fragrances—lavender, carrot, cucumber, fig, peach, cherry blossom, tangerine, you name it! These are sure to pretty up everyone’s guest bathrooms!

Even little girls and boys need a chance to relax! Crayola Bath Dropz are fragrance-free, non-toxic water-coloring tablets that will magically change your tub to blue, yellow, or red. 

Why should kids have all the bath time fun? Create rich bubbles and vibrant colors while treating your skin with beneficial ingredients like shea butter, cocoa butter, and essential oils. Bath bombs are the perfect stocking stuffer for someone who is already a fan or as an introduction for newbies. They often come in fun shapes like cupcakes, hearts, and donuts, too!

For the Coffee Lovers

A package of coffee paired with a trio of mini syrups makes a great stocking stuffer for every coffee lover in your life or your favorite at-home barista! 

For Kids of All Ages

Have a budding astronomer in your midst? A mini star projector beams the constellations of the astrological zodiac onto the walls of your home. Fun and educational, a mini star projector is the perfect way to bring the planetarium home!

Does your family love games? Codenames Board Game is a spy game for multiple players ages 10 and up. Two rival spymasters know the secret identities of 25 agents, and teammates know the agents only by their code names given on the cards. Add this unique game to your holiday fun!

Or, keep them laughing all day long with a holiday joke book for boys and girls. 

For Anyone and Everyone

Save the planet with easy-clean reusable straws. Most are dishwasher safe, and some even come with a linen carrying case! They’re perfect for a greener lifestyle. 

You can also consider getting them a personalized key chain. Many retailers offer options with common names, or surf the web for a way to make a truly customized gift in their favorite color or style. It’s just the thing to let them know how special they are!

Are they ready to travel? Get them prepared with a universal power wall charger with a power plug adapter. Look for an option that will work in many countries.

Ready, set? Shop! Time to shop to fill those stockings with fun and affordable gifts for everyone.
