The world of stocking stuffers has historically been a functional one. Each year, parents dutifully filled that fuzzy nylon sock — which in no way resembled an actual stocking? — with everyday items: socks, underwear, deodorant, toothpaste, and if you were lucky, candy. It always went to use with the candy first, of course, but the contents were never terribly inspired (no shade, mom and dad). If you’re now on stocking-stuffing duty OR want to forward this along to your parents, we’re here to help ensure that this year's offerings are thoughtful, unexpected, and still affordable.
The shopping guide ahead consists of some classic over-the-chimney gifts that you definitely won’t find at your local drugstore — along with some current-day additions to the canon: team Shopping’s favorite face mask; a kit for someone who already has all the puzzles; a foam block for the diehard home yogi. Without further ado, click on through to discover 32 lil’ gifts worth shoving into that 2020 “stocking”.
