Stocking Stuffers
By Nick Caruso
on 12.12.13

We live in a world dominated by technology, and a lot of it is pretty expensive. People save for the big items and often overlook the small; that’s where stocking stuffers come in handy (they’re the stop-and-smell-the-roses of the gifting world). The best news: because tech is so very ubiquitous — if not necessary — these days, a giftee needn’t be a major computer nerd to appreciate these tech gifts under $100.

Editor’s Note: The stockings are hung by the chimney with care…now what the hell are you gonna put in there? Ah, stocking stuffers — the little things, the extras, the last minute goodies, the fun gifts. They’re as enjoyable to give as they are to receive. Thing is, there’s an endless supply of stocking-size gifts under $100, and picking up the right ones can be a little daunting. That, of course, is where we come in: over the next ten days we’ll publish stocking stuffer guides curated around themes that’ll make stuffing that certain someone’s stocking markedly easier.
