It’s the cherry on top of Christmas morning: the stocking, stuffed with a few extra goodies. It’s also a gifting challenge. Stocking stuffers should be unexpected, interesting — and tiny. Luckily, our designers are experts at delivering big impact in small packages. Helping you to deliver gifts that are the opposite of boring. This week, as we highlight Last-Minute Finds for every budget, discover seven stocking stuffers they may end up liking better than their real presents.
1. Micro Pocket Fidget Spinner
Micro Pocket Fidget Spinner by Idle Hands Development
Fidget spinners have been big in 2016. Just add a couple of roller skate ball bearings, and you have a handy tool to keep your hands busy while your brain focuses. It’s true — fidget toys can actually help us focus. Plus, this one is small enough to keep your fidget toy obsession on the DL.
2. Santa-Approved Cookie-Dipper
Little Dipper by Craig Kaplan’s Mathematical Art
Some people just want a milk-soaked cookie, and not an entire glass of milk. We suspect that Santa is one of those people. So he’ll feel pretty good about leaving behind the Little Dipper in your little one’s stocking.
3. Bacon Mobius Strip
Bacon Mobius Strip by Joaquin Baldwin 3D Printed Designs
Mobius strips are amazing mathematical objects (read all about them here), and when combined with shockingly realistic bacon details, rendered in full-color sandstone, this one could become a bacon-lover’s favorite — and most unexpected — holiday gift.
4. Kaladesh Die
‘Kaladesh’ D20 Balanced Gaming Die by Tiny Tokens
Trust us, the roleplayers in your life will go insane over this Magic the Gathering-inspired die.
5. Wow, Such Doge

Doge is the meme that keeps on giving. He’s adorable, and he’s just excited to be here. Give your giftees a dose of doge with this stocking-sized figurine.
6. Klein Bottle Opener

The Klein Bottle is an amazing one-sided object that math nerds love. Play with the concept with this Klein Bottle that actually opens normal bottles.
Cat by Knuckies – Phone Stands, With a Twist
These cool little tools are phone stands, phone grippers, and fidget toys all in one. Maybe the most useful stocking stuffer they’ll receive this year.
