Unusual or Wacky Stocking Stuffers

Updated on December 8, 2015

Looking for the perfect stocking stuffers? Maybe you'd like something unique that's sure to bring a smile to the recipient or perhaps make them laugh? Maybe you won't to give them something touching or sentimental?

Buying stocking stuffers can be the best part of Christmas shopping. This is your chance to really cater to individual personalities without a big financial investment. You can look for gag gifts or sentimental items. You can look for educational toys or novelty items. The items can be totally practical or totally whimsical. That's what I like about stocking stuffers, almost anything goes. It also gives you room to experiment with items that you're not too sure how much they'd like them, but don't have to worry about that being their only gift or primary gift.

Take a look at the following items I ran across while doing a little stocking stuffer shopping myself. There's sure to be something here that you know someone will love.

For the Bacon Lover or Someone Who Can Be a Big Ham

Maybe you have someone in your family that loves bacon. Why not give them some bacon-flavored lip balm? They also have bacon-flavored mints. These small items fit nicely into a stocking. They can also be given as gag gifts to someone who hates bacon.

Bucky Balls

Bucky Balls are a set of 216 high-energy magnetic balls that are fun to play with. You use them to create shapes and patterns. Watch the video below. You'll want to order several of these. I can see them being quite addictive. These are also sold under the name NeoCube.

Iphone App Magnets

Refrigerator magnets have gone high-tech. These cute magnets resemble the Iphone application buttons your Iphone. Teens would love these. They will be sticking them to anything metal they can find.

Jewel Ice Cube Tray

I have an entire hub dedicated to novelty ice cube trays, but I particularly like this one. This tray makes ice cubes in the shape of jewels. These are so elegant. I could see young ladies loving these for wedding showers and bachelorette parties. But, why wait for a special occasion? These would be fun to use anytime.

Towel Treats

These are such cute little towels that are artfully shaped into tasty treats like:

  • ice cream,
  • cakes
  • cupcakes
  • delicious chocolate desserts.

Girls and women of all ages would enjoy having one of these in their stocking. These are just too cute to use as towels.

Star Wars USB Flash Drives

You're bound to have a Star Wars fan in your family. These are adorable 4 gb, 8 gb and 16 gb USB Flash drives. They are made by Tyme Machines and they are sculpted into all of your favorite Star Wars characters. You will want to collect them all. How do you choose?

I think my favorite is the Storm Trooper. Please watch the review below.

Novelty Coin Purses

Novelty coin purses make great gifts for little girls and teens.  You can find just about every food item imaginable such as:

  • Chocolate chip cookies
  • Toast
  • Bacon
  • Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches
  • Tacos
  • Pizza

Inflatable Turkey

I think this is a cute gag gift for a newly married woman.  She can have it as a stand-by if she burns the real turkey.  I also think it makes a great gift for a little girl who loves to play house.  She can use this turkey as part of her play food. 

Or maybe you can give to the guy who always acts like a turkey.

Colored Bubbles & Crazy Bubbles

Yes, they have finally created colored bubbles.  Colored bubbles are non-staining and non-toxic bubbles that come in Presto Pink and Blazing Blue.  What a cool stocking stuffer idea for kids of all ages. 

Crazy Bubbles have won five educational toy awards.  You create basic 3d shapes that you dip into the bubble solution.  This allows you to make bubbles of all kinds of shapes.  You get a variety of parts to make the shapes, step-by-step instructions and a recipe for making a bubble solution from ordinary dish soap.

Everyone loves bubbles.
