Stocking Stuffers Gift Ideas

Gift Ideas: Stocking Stuffers

Posted in GEAR GUIDES, GIFT GUIDE By

Where did the stocking stuffer come from? Beats us. Something about St. Nicholas, Odin’s flying horse, coal. All that matters is stocking stuffers make for small, interesting, and very cool gift-giving opportunities. Lo-fi, hi-tech, grooming or EDC — just pick 17 names on your list and cross each one off with picks from our guide. (Personally, we would be happy if any one of these ideas made it into our stockings this year.)

We’re pretty sure you know a would-be whittler, a capsaicin fiend, a poker player or at the very least someone who owns a cell phone. Read on, their gift is right here.

Skeye Nano 2 Drone

SKEYE Nano 2 Drone

The ideal entry-level drone. Weighs less than half an ounce and fits in the palm of your hand, yet it can hover, roll and flip with a 6-axis control system and adjustable gyro sensitivity. Basically turns anyone into a drone fanatic. – Buy It


 

Huckberry Compact EDC Kit

Huckberry Compact EDC Kit

Fully customizable EDC with the option to include or exclude a reversible bit driver, 1.9” blade folding knife, and a Griffin pocket tool that opens bottles, pries nails and more. Plus there’s room for two keys and a paracord lanyard. – Buy It

Asteroids Mini Arcade Game

Asteroids Mini Arcade Game

For the person on your list who remembers Asteroids. Or remembers what an arcade was. A handheld version with a 1-color screen, mini-joystick, fire buttons, and speakers that play the original sounds, all packed in a micro version of the classic arcade cabinet. – Buy It

PicoPen

PicoPen

Everyone needs a pen at some point in their day. This one will not disappoint. Ready to travel thanks to the integrated key ring, the stainless steel housing features a ball point pen and a secure magnet cap. Portable functionality. – Buy It

Duke Cannon Cannon Balm Tactical Lip Protectant

Duke Cannon Cannon Balm Tactical Lip Protectant

Four times bigger than regular lip balm and formulated to meet the needs of military personnel, this stuff is not dainty. Mint provides the flavor, with SPF 15 protection. It can withstand 125º and outperforms anything you’d find in a grocery store checkout lane. – Buy It

Titanium Pocket Bit

Titanium Pocket Bit

Useful, small, made from titanium: that pretty much checks all stocking stuffer boxes. The dual ended bit has a #2 philips head and a 6mm flat head driver and comes on a titanium key ring. Ready to repair without being weighted down. – Buy It

PPK Rubber Band Gun

PPK Rubber Band Gun

If your giftee will be opening this in front of you, make sure to get yourself one too. The solid maple, made in America, PPK replica begs to be loaded (5 bands at a time) and fired at the nearest bystander. – Buy It

Matador Pocket Blanket 2.0

Matador Pocket Blanket 2.0

A blanket in a stocking? It’s a very compact blanket made for picnics, hikes, the beach, or anywhere else you find ground to sit on. Water repellent and puncture resistant, it’s big enough to seat 2 but folds down to the size of a (non-minimal) wallet. – Buy It

Spine Wallet

Spine Wallet

Know someone still packing a back-pocket spine-tweaker for a wallet? Introduce them to minimalist front pocket carry. Spine Wallet is light, simple and extremely strong. Made from grade 5 titanium with a durable elastic band, this not only holds fast to cards and cash, it opens beer bottles too. – Buy It

Dan & Dave Camp Cards

Dan & Dave Camp Cards

Put in a good game of Omaha after you give someone a set of these. These limited edition custom illustrated face cards and hand drawn spot cards sport a green, tent bedecked back and come in a letterpress box sealed with a vintage tax stamp. – Buy It

Keygoes:Chili

Keygoes:Chili

He says he likes it hot. Take him at his word and get him one of these. Stainless steel keychains encase a vial of hot chili powder. Choose from a set of habanero and bhut jolokia vials or go ultra hot with Trinidad scorpion moruga and Carolina reaper. – Buy It

Mophie Power Reserve 1X

Mophie Power Reserve 1X

Here you go: a gift that 98% of the population will like, use and appreciate. A compact power reserve that’ll charge a smartphone fully and can be recharged 500+ times. It comes fully juiced out of the box. All you have to do is pick a color. – Buy It

Duke Cannon Solid Cologne

Duke Cannon Solid Cologne

Duke Cannon makes our list again because they make quality, un-fussy products (most of which fit in a stocking). These three solid colognes are subtle but effective and come in scents reminiscent of a forest (land), clear sky after a rain (air), and the great Pacific (sea). – Buy It

NERF N-Strike Elite Jolt Blaster

NERF N-Strike Elite Jolt Blaster

Stealthy, concealed carry with the power of NERF. The Blaster comes with two elite darts and is small enough to fit in your pocket. Get a whole arsenal of these and turn your holiday celebration into all out NERF warfare. – Buy It

Whisker Dam

Whisker Dam

Exactly what the bewhiskered man on your gift list deserves — a way to enjoy a rich-headed beer, without soaking his ‘stache. Made from 100% copper with a satisfying patina and non-toxic barrier, Whisker Dam is old-time class for today’s mustachioed fellow. – Buy It

50 Things To Do With a Penknife

50 Things To Do With a Penknife

Some carry a knife and only ever open packages with it. Sad. Give this guide and your giftee will learn to whittle a spoon, a spinning top, maybe even a bird feeder. Complete with step-by-step illustrations, this book will put that knife to good use. – Buy It

Cold Steel Micro Recon 1 Knife

Cold Steel Micro Recon 1 Knife

The perfect backup knife makes the perfect stocking stuffer. This two inch stainless blade is coated in black Tuff-Ex and comes with a key ring instead of a pocket clip. The superstitious among us will tape a penny to the handle before gifting. – Buy It
