We have a lot of amazing stocking stuffers lined up this year for you and it will all be going up on the guide later today!

  • MSRP: $19.99

Grill Charms

This is one of the best stocking stuffers that you can get for anyone who loves to grill. It’s a great present for kids to get dad (or mom) and an excellent host present. Grill Charms have been famous since they appeared on the TV show Shark Tank. They are super simple as a concept, but so brilliant that you punch yourself in the face wondering why you didn’t think of it yourself. The concept is that you just push these decorative pins into steaks to mark who gets which one. This is an excellent thing to have when your BBQ guests don’t all want their steaks done medium well… besides, anyone who cooks beef that much doesn’t really deserve to eat it.

Codigo Cube

In the last few years QR codes have become part of our everyday life, so it only makes sense that someone would make them part of how we play as well. The codigo cube does just that. It is a dice based trivia game that you place with your smart phone. You just roll the cube and read the QR code to get started., what follows is one of the most frequently updated trivia games that we’ve ever seen. There’s six different categories of trivia and you can play by yourself or with a big group of friends. Just keep it in your pocket or hand bag and pull it out when you are in a booth at the bar with some friends. We definitely recommend this one as a crowd pleasing stocking stuffer.

Ages 8+

Crowded coop portal 2 tin lunch box

This thing is awesome, but I’m not sure if it should be called a lunch box. It is a lot deeper than typical tin lunch boxes. You could probably fit a whole cantaloupe in it if you had to and still have room for a thermos. I would suggest this as a stocking and a stuffer. You could fill it with tons of other little cool candies and such. Every fan that I’ve showed this box to is already asking if they can have it for themselves.

Crowded Coop DOTA 2 Inflatable Axel’s Axe

I’ve honestly never heard of DOTA before, but it is a mod for Warcraft 3. After looking at this axe, I might have to check it out. I’m guessing that this gift would be really just best for people who like the game, but it could be good for cosplayers as well. After all, this might just be an inflatable axe, but it is four feet long and 20 inches wide. That is one hell of an axe.

Crowded Coop Portal 2 Companion Cube and Space Sphere Plush Key Chains

If you need a great stocking stuffer for your Portal fan, these plush key chains are cute and really nicely detailed. You can get them in either the space sphere (with different styles) or the companion cube. They make for a great little something extra when you just need to top off a stocking or a gift.

Crowded Coop You Must Be Trippin Pot Scented Stickers

Do you have a friend who loves to smoke weed or who used to love smoking weed? These stickers will give them the memory of their own purple haze without the high or the risk of losing their job during random drug testing. We scratched, we sniffed and they definitely smell like pot. These are the perfect little somethings to stink up your friend’s stocking

Crowded Coop Knit Beer Cozies

Here’s another great stocking stuffer that will put a smile on the face of any beer drinker in your family – knit beer cozies. You really can’t help but smile when you look at them. You can either get the one that says I love beer or the one with the face sporting a “porn stache.” If you really want to put a smile on their face, don’t just put the cozie in their stocking, first put a beer in it and then put it in the stocking.

Crowded coop portal iPad case

The iPad is going to continue to be one of the hottest gifts for the next several years. If you are shopping for someone who has one or is getting one and who likes Portal, this iPad sleeve is a great gift. It is well padded and very stylish. Also, at $29.99 it is one of the more affordable iPad sleeves out there.

8-bitty iCade Game Controller

Don’t you hate playing playing old school games on your phone or tablet with the crappy controls that they give you on the screen? This is the cure for what ails you. The 8-Bitty is an old school game controller that lets you play games like the Atari favorites app and even things like MAME. It works on both Apple and Android devices and it makes gaming on your tablet a lot more fun.

Underground Toys Star Wars Talking Character Plush

Underground Toys has mastered the art of making Characters from your favorite movies and TV shows cute. They are back again this year with their highly successful line of 9” talking Star Wars plush and they are looking better and cuter than ever. The characters currently available include: Chewbacca, Yoda, Darth Vader, R2D2, Princess Leia, Jawas, Boba Fett, Cantina Band Member, Darth Maul, and Wickett. These adorable and super cuddly plushes each have several phrases that they say when you hug them. I’d recommend them as a gift for anyone from 5 years old through 100.

  • MSRP: $11.95

Underground Toys Star Wars Talking Character Clip On Plush

If you are looking for something a little smaller than the 9” plush, but is still just as cute and also talks, the clip on plush are perfect for you. They have just about all the same characters and they seem to say almost all of the same phrases. My favorite from this batch so far is the Jawa. His eyes light up and one of his phrases is when he yells “Ooo Tini!” from A New Hope. These clip ons make for awesome stocking stuffers.

Death Star Wars Tea Infuser

Got any friends who are huge Star Wars fans and tea drinkers? This is a great stocking stuffer or gift for them. The ball is s simplified version of the Death star and the chain has a very cool looking metal tie fighter on the end. I will be using mind a lot in the future for whenever I drink loose tea. Another great benefit is that it is dishwasher safe, so clean up is a cinch. Great gift!

C2f Ferro Liquid

Because of its size, we really like the Ferrofluid magnetic display as a stocking stuffer. This little guy will drain every ounce of productivity from you as you take the magnets and move the fluid around in the bottle. It is addicting. There’s something about taking a liquid and making it go all spikey and awesome. It is kind of like you’ve got a little chunk of alien symbiote in a jar.

Star Wars Lightsaber Candlesticks

Even Star Wars fans like to have a fancy dinner at home once in a while. For those people, Thinkgeek has created truly beautiful metal candle sticks that are highly detailed recreations of Darth Vader’s Lightsaber hilt. Seriously, the design on these candlesticks is stunning. I’ve seen people pay a lot more for prop replicas that don’t look this good. One thing to keep in mind is that they are sold individually, so don’t buy it and expect a pair. I think it is completely worth it to shell out the extra twenty for a matching set. Also, each candlestick comes with three drip free red candles to mimic the lightsaber.

Blue Canary Nightlight

This one is simple. If you have someone on your gift list that loves They Might Be Giants, but them this and then prepare to be hugged, kissed and possibly more. I’d push this one into the stocking stuffer category. It might look like a cute little night light to those who aren’t in the know, but to those who do, it is an awesome realization of a line from the song “Birdhouse In Your Soul.” “Blue Canary in the outlet by the light switch, who watches over you. Build a little birdhouse in your soul.”

Sew Plain Jane Cape Decorating Kit

This is an awesome stocking stuffer for kids. Superheroes are hotter than ever, but it gets kind of old when you have to be one of the Avengers or a member of the Justice League every time. This little kit solves that problem by giving you everything you need to create your own custom superhero cape that defines who you are as a hero… or maybe even a villain.

Thumb Dogs

Got friends in colder climates? This is the stocking stuffer that you want to get them. The concept is real simple. Instead of having to go out and get super expensive winter gloves that will let them fiddle with their smart phones in the cold, you just slip the thumb dogs over the tips of your glove fingers and you are off and running. Pretty cool.

Bridge Direct Shoulder Buddies Hello Kitty

Stocking stuffers for girls ages 6 -12, that is what these will be perfect for. The Shoulder Buddies are little figurines that were created specifically to sit on your shoulder. They are designed to inspire positive attitudes and behavior. Along with having their own line of characters, they also come in great licenses like Hello Kitty. Girls love to wear, collect and trade them with their friends and they are starting to get very popular so you should grab them while you can.

Atx Head Blade

Need a stocking stuffer for your bald or balding friends? The ATX Head Blade is awesome. It is the most comfortable razor out there and it works better than pretty much anything else when it comes to shaving your scalp. I would give one warning on this product. Because it has wheels, little kids could mistake them for toys, so be sure to keep them out of the reach of the little ones.

Mysweetnovember Zombie Jewelry

We don’t often include Etsy creators in the holiday gift guide, but we loved the creepy necklaces from Mysweetnovember so much that we wanted them in this year’s edition. At only around $15.00 a piece, the make for great stocking stuffers. We were very impressed with the level of detail they were able to bring out in their cameo necklaces of skeletons and the undead. These were just our favorites, but their store is worth looking through as there are tons of other great items as well.

Underground Toys Star Wars Light Saber Torch

You’re gripping your flashlight in the dark and at that moment you realize you’re destined to become the Jedi you’re parents truly wanted you to be. As you raise your beam and prepare for battle you realize it’s a dumb old broken down black and decker flashlight. Well now Underground Toys have given you just want you were destined to own, the Star Wars Light Saber Torch (or flashlight for the Americans). You can not only light your way during a black but you can defend the rebels from the dark grip of the empire. Although you could always take the easier route and use your flashlight saber in league with the dark arts of the Sith, your choice of course.

Underground Toys Clip On Talking Stay Puft Marshmallow Man

Most of us geeks like to show our ‘geekpride’ and what better way to do that than with a mini plush Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. If you need a boost during the day just press on his tummy to hear one of the most iconic theme songs of the 80’s The Ghostbusters Theme. Little Stay Puft comes in both happy or angry face and is a joy for all ages. Clip him on your backpack, briefcase, hi-top sneaker, jacket, or anywhere that’s clip-able and you want to fly your geek flag high!
