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.

All the usual multi-tool suspects are here, two blades (one serrated and one straight), pliers, scissors, screwdrivers, and so on. There’s even a magnetic quarter inch hex bit holder — all for less coin than you’d expect. – Shop Now
