    39 Stocking Stuffers That Are Almost Too Cute To Use

    Yeah, I said "almost" because these gift ideas are useful too.

    Still shopping for Christmas? Heads up that most of the items in this post won't arrive in time for Dec. 25, but check out our last-minute version of this gift guide with more ideas that are more likely to arrive in time!"

    1. A pair of cactus-shaped dryer balls whose prickles will ensure their laundry dries quicker and gets softer than ever — while reminding them of their favorite succulent. Dryer sheets who?

    2. A ~beary~ smart portable pack of soap sheets, because when public bathrooms run out of hand soap (especially in times like ::gestures around::) that is *not* a good feeling. We love a cute *and* practical gift.

    The pink plastic container with ears and a nose, plus the pink paper-thin soap sheets

    3. A Dracula garlic mincer for anyone who appreciates irony, has strong feelings about their favorite vampire, or just really loves garlic bread. And if they're on board with all three like me, even better.

    4. A pair of adorable stainless-steel caribou who perch on the rim of hot chocolate mugs and can wear tons of treats in their antlers (especially marshmallows).

    5. A TonyMoly bunny perfume stick (that's right, it's a solid perfume!) for the perfect combo of fun and functional: it looks adorable, smells amazing, actually moisturizes skin, and it makes bringing perfume on the go incredible easy and free of leaks or spills.

    The three sticks in white, orange, and purple

    6. A purrfect night light with a soft silicone body and touch-sensitive control so they can just tap it to change the color and light mode.

    7. Or a Zero mood light for anyone who can't decide whether The Nightmare Before Christmas is a Halloween movie or a Christmas movie, but watches it during both seasons!

    The glowing mini lamp shaped like Zero the dog

    8. A purrfectly-shaped lipstick so pretty, they almost won't want to ruin the itty bitty kitty by applying it — but let's be real, the color payoff is WORTH IT.

    9. Succulent-shaped tea lights that'll almost be a shame to set on fire.

    10. A silicone dachshund ice try to make any beverage more of a ~wiener~.

    11. A moisturizing coconut foot mask in adorable Christmas stocking packaging for a truly meta stocking stuffer. Alternatively, you can just hang some of these right on your chimney with care and see what else Santa brings.

    12. A giant bow-topped fleece head band so they can look cuter than ever while masking or washing their face — without getting any goopy product in their hair.

    18. A hand soap attachment to transform boring ole foaming soap into a ~secret Mickey~. Guaranteed to put a smile on their face every time they wash their hands (aka a...lot).

    22. A baguette-shaped wrist rest, that'll put a smile on their face when they sit down to that 9–5 grind, because carpal tunnel shan't keep them from ~getting that bread~.

    28. A bag of Reindeer Farts (spoiler alert: it's actually peppermint–flavored cotton candy) that'll make a truly magical gift that'll bring out the giggles in recipients of all ages.

    29. Cable-hugging critters to take a ~bite~ out of the annoyance of fraying cords. These'll hold any charging cord in place (aka not bending at those very sharp angles) so it stays in tact for longer.

    The cable protecting animals including a crab, lobster, turtle, penguin and more

    30. An otter tape dispenser who knows a thing or two about being stuck together — you know they hold hands while they float around, right?
