HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE: Stocking Stuffers For The Hard To Buy For Person


Sometimes stockingscan be so hard to stuff if you aren’t quite sure what to get that is small enough to fit in the stocking and fun enough to receive. I know, I’ve been there. On BOTH ends. Well, I tried out a few products, felt them, used them and would definitely buy them for someone special.

Check out these stocking stuffers for the hard to buy for person on your list.


FOR THE COOK: Outer Spice is a new company that creates four highly versatile new low salt and no salt seasoning blends made from the finest, quality ingredients and hand sourced from around the world. The blends are all-natural, gluten-free, rich in anti-oxidants and contain no MSG. Each spice is finely ground by a family-owned artisanal spice company in Austin, and packaged the same day to ensure freshness and quality.

You can get all four seasonings for $6.99 each as a stocking stuffer HERE or at select Whole Food Markets.



FOR THE LOUD NOISE HATER: Maybe your ears get really sensitive at sports games or concerts get a little too loud for your liking? Or maybe there is that annoying person in your family you’d rather just tune out at your family gatherings? Just kidding…maybe not. DUBS is your solution!

The DUBS use dynamic attenuation to protect your ears while preserving sound fidelity. The DUBS reduce audio levels by an average of 12 dB, providing protection from loud noise and environments. The compact size of the DUBS mask the complexity of their 17 individual parts made of premium materials like stainless steel, ABS, polymer foams and silicone. The DUBS have a discrete, minimalist form factor that transforms a product originally designed for construction sites into a fashion accessory. With a small, protective case, DUBS safely fit into a pocket, clutch or jacket. The DUBS are reusable, built to last for countless adventures and nights out.


Available at, SoulCycle, TAO Group venues, Best Buy. You can snag them up in colors Teal, Blue, Pink and White.

NOTE: If your teenager isn’t listening to you, check their ears for DUBS! Just sayin’!

Each book contains a set of simple instructions that help people of all ages fold the pages into decorative sculptures. Artfolds aren’t only a great craft to complete, but make a great tabletop decoration, especially the Snowflake and Christmas Tree for the holidays.
