Stocking Stuffers
By Nick Caruso
on 12.17.13

Fact: there’s always a chance — no matter how slight — that one or more of your giftees will not like a present you give them. Fact: your dogs loves everything you give him and pretty much everything you don’t. He stuck with you when you were unemployed, loved you all through that nasty break up, and is, like, a total chick magnet. Show him how much you love him back with a gift from the heart (and/or from this list). They’re the best gifts for dogs, not that it matters — he’s gonna love ‘em anyway.

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.
