Gift Guide 2019: Stocking Stuffer Gifts Under $40

Hot take: stocking stuffers are the best part of gift-getting.

Look, we know that bigger ticket items like Trek Light Gear blankets, fancy slow cookers, and a new tablet are among the most coveted items during the holidays...but! stocking stuffers are consistently fun and surprising. 

Stocking stuffers are small purchases that bring lots of joy and, if you do it right, they can also be gifts that stand out and get loved even more than the big gifts on your list. 

Because the holidays are a spendy time, we’ve put together this Stocking Stuffer Gift Guide with our favorite products that are all $40 and under

And, since “stocking stuffers” is also just another way of referring to small and inexpensive gifts - this gift guide is also perfect for the teachers, bosses, postal workers, and more in your life
