Figuring out what things to put in those stockings that are not candy?? This gift guide has something for him, her, the kids… everyone!

You still can’t go wrong with a classic metal slinky in a stocking!

This Studio McGee x Pura scent is so so good. It’s so warm and inviting and is all she really wants in her stocking.

Put this dip clip in the chicken nugget, drive-thru lover’s stocking. You clip it onto your car vent, and it holds all your sauces for dipping. It’s all about convenience, people!

We always got an orange in the foot of our stockings, and this is a cute twist on the Christmas tradition. You peel back the crepe paper layers to reveal playful vintage keepsakes tucked carefully within. Such a cute small business full of handmade goodies like this.

Everybody wants a nice, quality pair of knit socks for Christmas. This classic 3-pack would be so cute rolled up in a stocking.

If you know somebody still living in the “dark ages,” it’s time to sneak this electric lighter in their stocking.

There is no classier way to freshen the scent in your car than this essential oil-infused wood freshener. It clips onto your visor, and there are an array of scents to choose like amber, cabana, grove, and teak.

For the person that’s always running out of juice on their phone. This portable charger is so the perfect, sleek size and I love that there’s no cord to carry around with it.

My girls are obsessed with painting their nails, but I’m not always in the mood to do it for them. With this water-based polish, they can paint themselves, and you won’t have to worry about stains or spills.

These checkered claw clips are trendy, but they’re also surprisingly strong and will hold your hair up all day long. She’s going to love it.

Kids love anything smooshy and squishy and slimy these days. These mochi toys will keep them entertained for hours!

12. Gua Sha Tool $20

Put this in her stocking, because it’s all she really needs. This Gua Sha tool can be used in so many ways, to reduce facial inflammation and promote blood circulation.

I have this Aquis hair wrap, and it really does dry my hair so much faster. After I shower I wrap my hair up in this and leave it in while I do my makeup. It keeps everything all tied up and out of the way, and by the time I take it out, blow-drying is a breeze because I’m already nearly there!

Every woman needs this in their stocking. It’s a safety device that sounds a LOUD siren and flashes lights to create a diversion when she feels in danger. Birdie donates a percentage of profits to organizations that passionately support women’s safety, shelter, and health.

This Laneige sleeping lip mask is the most moisturizing product ever! When I wake up in the morning, my lips are so soft and lush. I don’t know what I would do without it!

This genius keychain multitool has everything! Multiple hexagonal wrenches, Allen wrenches, slotted screwdriver, Phillips screwdriver, box opener, bottle opener, and more!
