Stocking Stuffers
By Nick Caruso

Whether you participate in, watch, coach or simply nerd out about athletic endeavors, you’ll need some gear to supplement the activity. In addition to those courtside tickets and signed jersey you’ve got wrapped elsewhere, these, the best sports gifts under $100, will be a grand slam in a stocking.

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.
