    36 Stocking Stuffers Under $15 That You'll Want To Keep For Yourself

    This whole gift-giving thing? You’re sleigh-in’ it.

    1. A Groot flower pot that's perfect for any Guardians of the Galaxy fan. It's also great for holding pens and office supplies, if their desk could use a bit of sprucing up.

    2. A wearble nail polish holder that can fit bottles of all sizes and will revolutionize the way they do their nails. Now they just need to learn how to paint inside their cuticles.

    3. A Pusheen cross stitch kit that every twentysomething grandma would probably appreciate. It comes with everything they will need to create their mini work of art.

    4. A pack of OG Lip Smackers that'll bring them back to their youth and keep their lips from cracking all winter long. TBH, they probably smell better than whatever $20 lip balm they're rocking right now, too.

    5. A Game Boy-shaped earbud case that'll keep their prized possessions lookin' cute. It’s compatible with first- and second-generation Airpods, so you don’t have to stress about sizing.

    6. A pack of cute cat gel pens that write smoothly and are totally leakproof, so they won’t get splotches all over their important notes and memos.

    7. A stainless steel pasta-measuring tool that'll save them from accidentally cooking enough noodles to feed a small nation (we've all been there).

    8. A set of itty bitty cactus magnets that'll make them want to plaster their entire fridge (or locker) in notes and photos.

    9. A set of stainless steel tongue scrapers that'll help them rid of the nasty toxins and bacteria from their mouth. Plus, it'll make their breath smell nicer so they won't have to invest more money in mints.

    10. A genius chopping device that can cut, scoop, and drain meat all in one fell swoop. It also has a built-in herb stripper, so they can use it on sprigs of thyme and rosemary, too. Congrats, you just got them their new favourite kitchen tool.

    11. A handy food tracker that'll remind them to serve their four-legged friend(s) breakfast and dinner. It’s a must-have if they share dog duties with a partner or roommate.

    12. A set of wallet-sized pastel highlighters that'll easily fit into smaller pockets and pencil cases. As an added bonus, they won't dry out, even if their caps are left off for hours.

    13. A pair of durable, cut-resistant gloves that'll keep their digits intact while they prep ingredients. They're 100% food safe and machine washable, so they can just throw 'em in the laundry when their done cooking.

    14. A magnetic glasses holder that'll keep their specs where they can see 'em and won't poke holes in their clothes. They work on backpacks and purses, too!

    15. A snowflake multi-tool that'll solve all their little problems and is small enough to tuck in their wallet. It has 19 devices, including a Phillips head screwdriver, flathead screwdriver, boxcutter, bottle opener, and more.

    16. A shampoo brush that'll give them a spa-level scalp massage while they shampoo and condition their hair. It has an ergonomic handle, so it's easy to grip (even when it's covered in suds).

    17. A set of colourful triple-slot cord clips that'll save them from having to crawl under their desk every time your phone or computer battery hits low power.

    18. A waterproof travel makeup bag that they don't need Marie Kondo's organizational skills to use. They can just toss their goodies onto it while it's in mat form and then pull the cords to turn it into a portable pouch.

    19. A flexible, multipurpose squeegee that can clean both wet and dry messes. It'll save them tons of sponges and paper towels, which they'll definitely appreciate.

    20. A pack of BeanBoozled candies that are essentially the muggle version of Bertie Bott's Every Flavour Beans. They'll thank you for the birthday cake and strawberry flavours, but hate you for the spoiled milk and boogers.

    21. A set of durable bag holders that makes stowing away shopping bags, purses, and garment bags a cinch. They clip right onto car headrests and will ensure that their backseat doesn't turn into one big mess of a floordrobe.

    22. A set of silicone earbud tips that'll keep their headphones from falling out, even when their doing a hardcore HIIT workout. If you've got an athlete in your life, they probably need these.

    23. A pack of ramen sticky notes so that they can display their love of noods all over their desk and textbooks. They also might remind them to take a break and eat something (like ramen, idk) when they're in the middle of a cram sesh.

    24. An ombre metallic eyelash curler that looks and feels expensive, but doesn't come with a huge price tag. It has a rubber grip that won't pinch their eyelids, so they can safely do their makeup routine half-asleep.

    25. A pack of Starbucks instant peppermint mocha sachets (or pumpkin spice, if they're basic) so that they can stop spending their entire paycheck at a coffee shops and actually get to work on time.

    26. A classic WetBrush because getting out of the shower with a head full of tangles is zero fun. It'll breeze through their hair without ripping or pulling at strands, wet, damp, or dry.

    27. A password logbook, if their online info somehow goes missing all the time. It has spaces for websites, software license numbers, and home network settings (basically, all the important stuff).

    28. A jar of milk chocolate spread that's like Nutella, but even more indulgent. They'll want to put it on everything from toast to ice cream, or, ya know, just eat it with a spoon.

    29. An adjustable hot and cold therapy mask that will help them sleep through the night and is also a saviour for headaches. They can heat it up if they want a relaxing rest or cool it down to conquer aches and pains.

    30. A set of cartoon enamel pins that are perfect for anyone who could use a pop of colour on their jean jacket or backpack.

    31. A set of fancy geometric phone sockets that might actually save them from shattering their screen (again). They make devices easier to grip, so they won't slide out of their hands as easily.

    32. A pre-written grocery list so that they never leave the grocery store without their essentials again. It has all the basics printed out, plus room for them to jot down any extras.

    33. A bottle of magical makeup removing water that'll get rid of dirt, oil, and makeup without drying out their skin (a truly difficult task).

    34. A metallic giraffe ring holder that'll keep their smallest baubles from going MIA when they go to sleep at night. Also, it'll look pretty freaking cute on their nightstand.

    35. A book of Adult Mad Libs that's all about crazy family stories (AKA the best part of the holiday season). It has everything from dramatic step-parents to sibling rivalry, all they have to do is fill in the blanks.

    36. And finally, a lil' tea steeping dude to hang off the side of their mug and infuse their beverage. You probably want to add some loose leaf tea in their stocking, so they can use it right after opening.
