Aside from opening gifts hidden under the tree, unpacking stockings is one of our favorite Christmas traditions. The smaller the better, the better: the best options are thoughtful or humorous gifts that fit in the palm of your hand. If you’ve already got the big stuff out of the way, follow our guide on how to fill your loved one’s stockings.
The Charcoal Bar
Apotheke’s handmade soaps are the perfect size for a gift, and we especially love the charcoal bar. This bar is a combination of cedar wood, sandalwood and charcoal powder. It is mildly scented and perfect for everyday use.
The Charcoal Bar is available at pharmacy and costs $ 8.
Virtual reality is all the rage these days. And if you’re looking for a fun, low-tech option, give this Google Cardboard VR headset away. Put your smartphone in and get ready for the future.
Google Cardboard is available through Google and costs $ 15.
The slim and compact design of the teak bottle from S’well makes it the perfect gift for stockings. With a double-walled stainless steel bowl, it keeps cold drinks cool for 24 hours and hot drinks for up to 12 hours.
The teak bottle is available from S’well and costs $ 35.
Scoop That! Ice cream scoop
This ice cream scoop has a heat transfer handle that allows you to create perfect measuring spoons without waiting for the ice to thaw. With a matte black finish and sleek design, this unique ice cream scoop is the perfect gift for stockings.
The bullet that! Ice Cream Scooper is available through Bed, Bath, and Beyond and costs $ 20.
These dominoes are a step up from the standard bone set and avoid the usual black dots for a number of nautical flags. Embedded in a pretty wooden box, this domino set is the perfect gift for stockings.
The flag dominos are available from Fredericks & Mae and cost $ 38.
The Andrew Cardholder from APC
For a gift with a little more pizza, consider APC’s Andrew Cardholder. This slender bi-fold made of vegetable-tanned Spanish leather is very much appreciated in stockings or under the tree.
The Andrew Cardholder is available through APC and costs $ 130.
The votive candles from Malin & Goetz
Candles are a great gift for stockings, and we particularly like the votive set by Malin and Goetz. This set is a triplet of their best-selling candles and is made from eco-friendly materials for a guilt-free smell experience.
The votive set is available through Malin and Goetz and costs 45 US dollars.
