The 25 Best Stocking Stuffers of 2022

Published By

The tradition of the Christmas stocking might originate in ancient Germanic traditions—but thankfully today, we don’t have to literally hang our worn and smelly socks over the mantle to get some rad gifts. 

If you’re looking for some small and stocking-friendly gifts to give out to your friends and family, our list of the best stocking stuffers is a perfect place to start.

Daneson Single Malt & Bourbon Toothpicks

Daneson Single Malt & Bourbon Toothpicks

A glass of fine whiskey is just the kind of holiday spirit we’re looking for. And if you know anyone who’s just as fond of a tipple as we are, we can guarantee they’ll love Daneson’s Single Malt & Bourbon Toothpicks. Infused with real whiskey in each pick, they’re a delectable amusement for the mouth that seriously elevates the toothpick from simple teeth-cleaning status.

Duke Cannon Tactical Lip Balm

Duke Cannon Tactical Lip Balm

Personal care takes on a rugged and manly tone with all of Duke Cannon’s products—like their Tactical Lip Balm.

Model PPK Rubber Band Gun

Model PPK Rubber Band Gun

James Bond’s classic Walther PPK was the handgun of many a young boy’s dreams. So when we saw Elastic Precision’s replica rubber band gun, we knew it would be a Christmas filled with wartime espionage. Load up five bands at a time, take aim, and you can fling them a full 20 feet each towards your unsuspecting targets.

Peckerhead Mustache Wax

Peckerhead Mustache Wax

Do you have a mustachioed man in your life who has been unimpressed with the wimpy hold most mustache waxes offer? Then get him a fresh tin of Peckerhead, and his follicular worries will be no more. Specially formulated for a strong all-day hold, it’s a VIP ticket to finely groomed facial hair.

Timex T80 Watch

Timex T80 Watch

A classically good looking, durable chronograph watch with an adjustable band—for under $100? Crazy, we know. But that’s exactly what Timex is doing with their T80 watch, a modern reimagining of some of the brand’s earliest digital watches. Any guy will be happy to pull this out of their stocking on Christmas morning.

Ridge Wallet

Ridge Wallet

Bulky bifold and trifold wallets are out—and thin but durable minimalist wallets like this one from Ridge are all the rage. Made from lightweight but sturdy aluminum, they hold not much more than 8 to 12 cards and a few bills. That makes them perfect for the guy who needs to trim down his George Costnaza style wallet and save himself a backache.

Duke Cannon News Anchor Travel Pomade

Huckberry Cruisers Sunglasses

Huckberry Cruisers Sunglasses

A high class pair of $100+ Oakleys is always a great gift. But the sad fact of most sunglasses is this: They don’t often last that long anyway, whether by getting broken or getting lost.

KeySmart Key Organizer

The familiar jingle jangle of a janitor’s keyring may be a great memory of grade school, but it’s not exactly a good look for a guy working in an office or heading out on the town. KeySmart’s Key Organizer will do exactly as its name implies, holding eight keys in perfect, quiet alignment.
