Giving and receiving big gifts can certainly be fun, but for me filling a stocking with unexpected, useful, and downright awesome gifts is a very good time. If you’re like me, check out the following suggestions and inspirational ideas for stocking stuffers.
Four ounce Mason jars. Yes, I recommend putting tiny Mason jars in your loved one’s stockings. They’re immensely useful and can store anything from nuts and bolts to just the right amount of salad dressing for lunch. The lids are replaceable and cheap, they stack nicely in a cabinet and are recyclable. You can’t go wrong.
Sugru. I reviewed Sugru last year and I’ve since ordered and used even more. This self-sealing rubber lets you fix, modify, improve and extend the usefulness of a myriad of items. Plus, it’s just fun to use.
The Matador Pocket Blanket. This is another handy gift with many uses. The 63″ X 44″ blanket folds up into a tidy pouch that will fit into your bag or purse. They’re both water- and puncture-resistent. Often items like this are hard to get back into their packages. The Matador Pocket Blanket lets you use the stitching to line it up perfectly, so it’s not an issue.
The KeySmart Key Holder. Imagine all of your keys on a compact, durable holder that fits neatly in a pocket. It’s flat and tidy and prevents you from looking like a jailer with a huge ring of noisy, jangly keys.
The Cord Taco. I keep one of these on my desk and I love it. Neatly wrap up earbuds and look great doing it.
