Looking for cool and unique stocking stuffer ideas to spoil your special someone on Christmas morning? Well, look no further. We found small but mighty gifts that are quaint in size but big on impact, guaranteed to make them smile as they pull them out of their plush stocking. Because let’s be real, presents are great and all, but the stocking is where all the fun is at. Most of my most treasured memories are of us kids pulling out each stocking stuffer one by one and admiring them slowly before we’re finally allowed to open the big presents. Of course, there’s always candy and tricks too, because that’s all part of the stocking stuffer surprise, but sometimes you’ll get money or jewelry—we all live in hope. And that’s part of the appeal… in the famous words of Forest Gump, “you never know what you’re gonna get.”

So make sure you stuff your loved one’s stockings with something super special this year (and grab a few for your own too… we won’t tell!) because it’s almost Christmas and this year we all deserve to smile. Keep scrolling for 23 of the best stocking stuffer ideas we found on the internet. Happy Holidays!
