The men on your list will love seeing this grilling spice set in their stockings. It comes with five different spice blends including a fresh bay spice that’s great for seafood along with a pepper habanero blend that’s delicious on wings and steaks. You can give the whole spice set to one lucky guy or split it up and stick one jar in each stocking.

It contains twenty different sticks of jerky in eight delicious flavors including barbecue pineapple pork, zesty jalapeno, teriyaki, and garlic and herb. This jerky is gluten-free, MSG-free, and low in calories and trans-fat, so even though it tastes indulgent, it’s still a healthy choice.

These memo books from Field Notes are great for doodling or jotting down ideas.

Stocking Stuffer Ideas For Kids 

Not sure which toys and gifts to get your kids this Christmas? Here are five children’s gift ideas to get your shopping list started.

Christmas Wind-Up Toys


We used to love wind-up toys when we were little, so we bet your kids will love these Christmas-themed toys! They come in a pack of twelve and feature beloved holiday characters like Rudolph and Frosty the Snowman. You can put just one toy in each stocking or a few. Either way, your kids will be playing with these toys all Christmas morning! 

Blank Comic Book and Drawing Pens


If your kids like to draw, then they’ll be thrilled to see these comic books and drawing pens in their stockings! These comic books have four different blank templates that your kids can use to create their own superhero stories. The drawing pens are specifically designed for graphic novelists and feature smear-proof ink and precise brush tips. These gifts will definitely help your kids bring their artistic visions to life!

Galaxy Slime


Slime has been all the rage for the past few years, so it’s a great choice for the kids on your list. This can of galaxy slime has streaks of purple, blue, green, and iridescent gold. Your kids will have hours of fun kneading, squeezing, and playing with it. And best of all, this slime is made of high-quality, nonstick materials. What’s better than not having to worry that your kitchen counter is a mess?!

Mini Jenga Game


Jenga is a super fun game and a hit with kids. The object of the game is to pull as many wooden blocks from the tower as you can without tipping it over. The regular version of the game is too big to carry around, let alone fit in a stocking. But this mini-version is small enough to fit in a pocket or backpack. Best of all, your kids can bring it with them to school or on playdates with friends. 

Joke Book


This book is one of the best collections of jokes for kids. It was written with children ages seven to ten in mind and features hundreds of hilarious tongue twisters, knock-knock jokes, and puns. It’s a Wall Street Journal bestseller and has sold over three million copies. Your little ones are sure to love it!
