I equate stockings with getting a bonus snack from the vending machine, or hitting every green light on the way to work - they are little extras that bring an added thrill. From games to test your smartphone skills to $10 virtual reality headsets, here is my list of fun and practical stocking stuffers that everyone will love!
Find out how your smartphone skills compare to your friends with this clever game of phones card deck.

The best cable organizer that you can easily throw in your purse or bag. It holds all the cables you need in a flat case that doesn’t create bulk in your bag. Aaron and I both carry one and love them. Oh and if you are in the habit of carrying around an HDMI cable, this ultra thin one is great!
9. Mitten clip
Make sure your little one doesn’t lose their mittens with these mitten clips.
10. Computer brush
Keep your electronics tidy with this sleek computer brush. The lighter color bristles sweep dust from the screen without generating static electricity, while the shorter bristles easily brush between keys.
11. Oven glove
The only oven glove you need. It is brilliant that an oven glove is an actual glove rather than a mitten. It broadly fits most people and is so much easier to maneuver in than a simple oven mitt.
If you plan on traveling this holiday season, a headphone splitter is a very useful item. When Max is napping on the plane, Aaron and I can easily watch a movie together with this headphone splitter.
