Hanging Christmas stockings from the mantle and filling them with small gifts and trinkets is a tradition for many families during the holidays. Unfortunately, far too many of us remember getting pieces of fruit (or fruit cake) as kids, so the idea of stocking stuffers isn’t always met with excitement. All that’s about to change, though, because we’ve rounded up 9 of our favorite stocking-sized gifts of this holiday season. These gifts are so awesome, in fact, that the recipient may never even make it to the boxes under the tree!
Nothing can derail the fun and excitement of Christmas morning gift opening than toys with impossible-to-open battery compartments. Enter the Toydriver. It was created specifically for those tiny little screws on those tiny little toys that—until now—took a rocket scientist to open.
While you can certainly fit a spa gift card into the stocking of the person who’s most in need of a massage, the reality is, one massage probably isn’t enough. The Pulsing Massage Patch by Wahl is a convenient way to get relief at a moment’s notice—just attach to any tight or tense areas with the adhesive gel pads, choose the desired pulse and intensity, and prepare to be relaxed.
What makes this speaker Christmas gift-worthy? Only the fact that it’s made by Bose—the leaders in sound quality. These top-rated speakers deliver full, robust sound for 10 hours on one charge, and, yes, they’re small enough to fit in a stocking.
Today’s families can barely get through a meal together without someone pulling out a tablet or smartphone—that is, unless the battery is dead. Give the gift of power with the Weego Battery Pack. This little baby can fit in the palm of your hand, but is powerful enough to charge any mobile device or car battery.
Essential oils are all the rage, and for good reason. The highly concentrated plant extracts provide all-natural relief from a multitude of conditions and ailments, including colds, seasonal allergies and digestive distress. The Hawaiian Essential Travel Gift Set makes it easy to take that potent healing power on the go with four popular oil blends in convenient spray bottles. The set includes remedies for insomnia, headaches, bug bites and hay fever.
No more lost remotes, or keys, or cell phones—or anything, really. Tile is the tiny tracker (with companion app) that makes it super easy to find any misplaced item. Using Bluetooth technology, you can find anything in close range by “ringing” the Tile or using the Tile to ring your phone, even it’s on silent. And there are additional homing options for items lost in medium- or long-range.
Everyone has a cell phone these days—which means that everyone is also being regularly exposed to potentially harmful radiation. Pong cases (available for phones and tablets) contain a micro-thin, internal antenna that pairs with the antenna on the device, ultimately redirecting radiation away from the user’s head and body. Additionally, Pong fans report increased signal strength with use of the cases.
We all know we’re supposed to drink more water, but lugging around a bulky water bottle isn’t always convenient. Now, with the Hydaway bottle, once you’ve finished drinking, the bottle folds down to just over an inch—making it the perfect size to fit in backpack, diaper bag, pocket or, of course, a Christmas stocking.
We know what you’re thinking: There’s no way any kid or adult will get excited about pulling pencils out of their stocking. But as soon as you tell them that those same pencils can be planted and sprouted into various edible plants, we think they’ll change their tune. Pencils that grow into rosemary when they’re too short to write with? We’ll take a pack, too.
