The stockings were hung by the chimney with care and hopefully stuffed with items they’ll love. Buying stocking stuffers is one of my favorite parts of Christmas. It gives you the opportunity to get creative and fill the recipients stocking with their favorite things, things that remind you of them, or just items you think they’ll really enjoy. It’s what we open first on Christmas and I look forward to seeing my loved ones reactions when they see what is inside. Whether you are someone who nails the perfect gifts every year or someone who needs a little help in the idea department, we’ve compiled a list of 11 stocking stuffers that will actually get used. From candles to beef jerky, to nail polish kits and cake cards, these items are unique and fun and anyone on your list would enjoy getting!

  • Cooling Cuff

    Price: $34.95

    As a veteran-owned business, Cooling Cuff is solely focused on helping your body cool down properly. Cooling Cuffs lower your body temperature by cooling the blood on the underside of your wrist. The cooler blood circulates to cool down your entire body. Cooling the body at the wrist can alter thermoregulation, rapidly lower core body temperature and quickly restore temperature homeostasis. That means athletes can train longer and run faster without using all their energy to cool down. It’s perfect for workouts, outdoor activities or just staying cool during those hot summer days.
