Here at SPY, we love looking for gift ideas, and we consider picking out the season’s best stocking stuffers something of a specialty. We’ve made it our mission to find the coolest stocking stuffers, little treats and tchotchkes for everyone on your holiday shopping list, and we believe we’ve found some awesome options for 2022.
The stocking stuffer is a Christmas tradition that is devilishly tough to get right. It’s one thing to get a gift, but an entirely different battle altogether when that gift has to be small enough to fit in a stocking. Whether shopping for stocking stuffers for women, stocking stuffers for men, or the best stocking stuffers for children, finding viable options can be difficult. Sure, you could go with cash or a gift card, but do you really want to phone in Christmas? No, we didn’t think so.
There’s a complicated list of best practices for stuffing a stocking. So if you’re determined to find the best stocking stuffers of 2022, here are some guidelines to keep in mind:
- Don’t include anything more expensive than the main gift you’re giving the recipient
- Don’t include anything that costs less than $5 unless you’re sure it’s a quality product (think chocolate bars or hot sauce)
- Make sure everything inside a stocking is useful or enjoyable
- Include mostly edibles if giving to children, but only some edibles for adults (but is there such a thing as too much chocolate?)
- All stocking stuffers must be small enough to fit inside the stocking
- Some of the gifts in a stocking should be wrapped
- When filling your family Christmas stockings, make sure each child gets similar items to avoid hurt feelings
This list might sound long, but as long as you’re stuffing a stocking with love, there isn’t a wrong way to do it.
We’ve already rounded up the 75 Best Christmas Gifts of the year, and now we’re finally ready to announce SPY’s official guide to the 99 Best Stocking Stuffers of 2022. So instead of tearing your hair out trying to stuff a stocking with a handful of throwaway items, check out our recommendations for the best stocking stuffers for Christmas 2022. We recommend you start Christmas shopping as soon as possible, and if you’re shopping for someone specific, you can also check out our guides to the best Christmas gifts for men and women.
Now, keep scrolling for the most awesome stocking stuffers. We’ve included stocking stuffers for adults, kids and even pets.

5 Surprise Mystery Capsule – Disney Store Edition
Last year, 5 Surprise capsules were one of the top stocking stuffer ideas, and while the buzz has died down on these mystery gifts (each capsule contains five mini collectibles), the company has collaborated with Disney Store on a new series.

Overall, it’ll be sure to make flying a little easier — or at least a little bit more fun.
Baron Fig Confidant Hardcover Notebook
For the person in your life that’s inherently creative or is always journaling, they’ll undoubtedly appreciate a hardcover notebook like this one from Baron Fig. The clothbound hardcover notebook comes in three different sizes, but each journal is still compact enough to carry around all day but large enough to work effectively in. The notebook will sit flat, avoiding that troublesome issue of pages flipping shut on their own.

Vantic Metal Reusable Straws, 4 Pack
In the same way we saw a big movement away from single-use plastic water bottles to multi-use bottles, the straw industry is now undergoing a similar revolution.

Although it may seem like an unconventional stocking stuffer, it’s something that the recipient will appreciate and use repeatedly.
WOLF PROJECT Sheet Mask for Men
This facial mask from WOLF PROJECT has somewhat of a ferocious name, but its results are far from scary. Designed and tested with men in mind, the Bro Mask is thicker than normal skincare masks in order to better clear the denser, oilier and more acne-prone skin that men tend to have. Additionally, these masks actively hydrate better than typical skincare masks, providing better results due to its high-quality ingredients. Don’t let the men in your life get left behind by the self-care craze.
Homesick City Candles
Let’s face it, we all yearn for our homes when we’re away from them. Each of those places has its own unique energy and feeling that’s hard to capture when someone isn’t there — but that doesn’t mean we can’t try to recapture that feeling. Homesick Candles are the closest thing out there to bottling up the scent and vibes of a particular place and bringing it along elsewhere. With a unique scent for most major cities in the United States, there’s more than likely a candle for everyone.
Just take this New York City candle for example, which evokes notes of Central Park, luxury department stores, and that concrete jungle (where dreams are made of). And with approximately 60-80 hours of burn time, there’s plenty of good feels to go around.
M3 Naturals Himalayan Salt Scrub
While bath-themed gifts may be generally overdone at Christmas, we would argue that gifting someone a quality bath item is always worthwhile. Just do your recipient a favor and stay away from scented lotions, shower gels or other items he or she probably already has a stockpile of.
One example of an excellent bath stocking stuffer to gift this holiday season The M3 Naturals Himalayan Salt Scrub. With almost 8,000 reviews, this scrub maintains a 5-star rating on Amazon. The natural Himalayan pink salt scrub includes lychee fruit and sweet almond oil to clean the skin. It’s also infused with collagen and stem cells to provide anti-aging benefits. These properties along with its pure luxuriousness make this a skin scrub anyone would be happy to receive.
Hide & Drink Rustic Leather Pencil Roll Pouch
When traveling, it can be unwieldy to keep track of all your various electronic cords. A cord organizer eliminates that issue, placing everything in one convenient accessory and keeping them always at the ready. This leather rollup case from Hide & Drink also has dedicated spaces for a pens, a passport and whatever else your giftee may need to tuck away in a safe place.
Transform someone’s room into a jungle. A lit jungle, that is. This fake ivy vine string light set is the perfect stocking stuffer for those that love greenery and ambiance lighting. It has a super cozy vibe and looks great strewn in with the rest of your plant collection or above your bed. It’s completely powered with a USB cable, so unplug your phone charger from its block and get these babies lit up.
The Ridge Aluminum Wallet
Minimalist wallets are all the rage right now, which makes sense as most people only need to carry a few cards in their pocket rather than a pile of cash and membership cards for every store in town. If you want to buy the man (or lady) in your life one of the best minimalist wallets available, check out The Ridge Wallets. These wallets have an innovative and customizable design and offer RFID blocking, too.
