‘Tis the season to deck the retail halls with products that make us jolly. Small yet mighty, stocking stuffers are the opening act to the magic of holiday gifting. While most of us can’t afford a yacht or a 54 convertible—light blue, of course—we can still give meaningful and memorable gifts to our family and friends. When it comes to stocking stuffers, you can find options for every person while fitting every kind of budget. We’ve compiled a list of some of our favorite stocking stuffer ideas inspired by the following brands on RangeMe:
FINE & RAW: Plant-Based Chocolate
We’ve all got a lactose intolerant or vegan person in our life. Dietary restrictions shouldn’t stop consumers from enjoying the wonders of chocolate. FINE & RAW’s bean-to-bar chocolate provides only the highest quality ingredients without any refined sugars or animal-based ingredients.
Spiceology: Spice Collection
As a Gonzaga University alumna, I have a soft spot for Spokane, Washington, which is the home to Spiceology. Spices are essential to the successful and delish outcome of any dish, but they can tend to be pretty pricey. Let the chef in your life have it all with this variety pack of rubs, without breaking the bank.
Root 23: Classic Cocktail Mix Kit
We saw a rise in cocktail kits throughout the pandemic as consumers stayed home but still craved their favorite fancy cocktails. Encourage a DIY enthusiast to have fun experimenting with the four flavors in Root 23’s Classic Cocktail Mix Kit gift pack and watch them become the mixologist of their (and perhaps your) dreams.
Seattle Chocolate: Holiday Truffle Bag
Seattle Chocolate has a praiseworthy reputation and as a Pacific Northwest native, I completely understand the hype. This perfect holiday assortment includes Dark Sea Salt Toffee, Champagne, Milk Chocolate, Candy Cane, and Mint truffles. A taste of Seattle Chocolates is like a sunny day in March with Mt. Rainier glowing in the distance.
Total Cluster Fudge: Hot Cocoa Bombs
While the holidays can be a total cluster fudge, you can bring some calm to the snowstorm with a nice warm beverage. Drop it while it’s hot! Simply plop one of these Total Cluster Fudge Hot Cocoa Bombs into hot milk or water to watch it transform into delicious hot cocoa—a perfect stocking stuffer for kids!
19-69: Perfume & Cologne
The year 1969 represents an era of freedom, tolerance, and counterculture. The 19-69 fragrance line is suitable for any gender, making it the perfect gift to encourage anyone to explore the art of beauty from abroad.
ZOË AYLA: Gua Sha & Jade Roller
Gua sha and stone face rollers are putting botox and facelifts to the test. Although they can’t exactly compare, the results of these beauty tools are still prominent. Gua Sha is an aesthetic and detoxifying beauty tool used for centuries in Chinese medicine. Jade rollers can be warmed or cooled before use to reinvigorate a sore and tired face. These ZOË AYLA tools make the perfect gifts for beauty and skincare gurus.
GERTEX: Claw Clips
Generation Z has spoken: Claw clips are back and more popular than ever. After going viral on TikTok, it’s hard to find a girl without some fun colored claw clips like these GERTEX ones in their hair. And take it from a hair accessory collector; it can never hurt to help a friend expand their array of hair accessory options.
LIGHTSMAX: Shaving Kit
In a hairy situation? With LIGHTSMAX’s quick and easy kit, men can conveniently recover from the consequences of No-Shave November. With this electric shaving kit, men can finally achieve a perfectly trimmed beard, shave, and hair-free nostrils on their own, no barbershop visit needed.
Mom Bomb: Bath Bomb Set
Mom Bomb is a 501c3 Charity that uses 100% of the profits from their sales of bath and beauty products to support mothers in crisis. Just drop one of the bombs into the bath, and voila! Instant spa-worthy experience. Each bath bomb in this six-piece set caters to different needs with aromatherapy.
Belcam Inc: Tweezers
Do you have a child, sibling, or significant other that always steals your tweezers? Now is the perfect time to get them their very own pair by Belcam Inc.! 2022 is bound to carry on the self-care trend, so don’t let your loved ones fall behind.
Bug Bite Thing: Bug Bite Relief Tool
For the camper or hiker in your life, Bug Bite Thing is the perfect gift to help them prepare for any pesky visitors. This unique suction tool extracts insect saliva/venom from under the skin to help alleviate the itching, stinging, and swelling from bug bites and stings. Unlike the typical topical cream options, the itching problem is eliminated, not masked.
SHHH: Silk Pillowcase
Shhh Silk is a sleep, wellness, and beauty brand focusing on improving people’s lives through the power of sleep and self-care. Let the sleeping beauty in your life indulge in this 100% pure mulberry silk pillowcase for better rest, skin, and hair.
Do or Drink: Drinking Card Game
Get the holiday festivities started and the shots ready for Do or Drink’s drinking card game. Win by completing the most challenges or lose while drinking. With 350 cards included in this game, you can play over and over again and watch your friends do ridiculous dares.
Ello: Stainless Steel Straws
As sustainability stays top of mind for most consumers, metal straws are the best way to conquer the woes of plastic use and the frustration that comes along with soggy paper straws. Encourage your people to live green and sip clean with a pack of these Ello stainless steel straws.
Funatic: Novelty & Private Label Socks
Believe me, I know socks are one of the most generic stocking stuffers of all time. But what if you gifted a pair of not-so-generic socks? Funatic creates hilarious, edgy, pop-culture-inspired socks and can even customize socks for those with particular tastes.
*Bonus gifts for the furry family members*
Pet Life: 8 Piece Backpack Pet Toy Set
Some may get their kids a backpack and toys, but some might get their dog the same exact thing. Take your furry friend on the go and keep them endlessly entertained with Pet Life’s holiday gift set.
Wellnergy Pets: Dental Care Combo
Stinky breath isn’t just an issue for humans, it can affect our pets and their health as well. Make taking care of your pet’s teeth, gums, and breath simple and stress-free with Wellnergy Pet’s Dental Care Combo. Included are Veterinary formulated Dental Care Wipes and Dental Water Additive for both cats and dogs.
Fountain of Health: Paw Power – Pet CBD
With a lot of pet parents stuck at home the past couple of years and more than 11 million pets adopted, many animals became our shadows. As things start to open and owners go back into work or start to travel, many pets will experience separation anxiety. Help them calm their nerves with Fountain of Health’s specialized pet CBD.
While some might believe that stocking stuffers are lackluster, it doesn’t have to be that way. RangeMe believes in helping one-of-a-kind brands that may have been overlooked in the past, shine as bright as Rudolph’s nose in retail. But if you are still conflicted about what to gift, my final piece of advice is––when in doubt, gift card it out (perhaps to one of the above-mentioned brands, of course!).
