Now that the hustle is over and we can put Black Friday and Cyber Monday behind us, we can focus on the little gifts. Whether you hang stockings or hide gifts in the tree, the small gifts can be the most fun part of Christmas for kids and adults alike!
I love to use the stockings as an opportunity to give people the gifts that they won’t necessarily want or ask for, but they most certainly need. The practical and clever gadget type gifts always have a place in our stockings.
Nomad iPhone Key
We have left the phone cord at home more times than we'd like to admit, so this iPhone key is the perfect gadget! Your keys are always with you when you leave the house. That’s the idea behind Key--it’s shaped like a key and fits easily on your keychain. You’ll never leave it behind, and won’t even notice you’re carrying it. $20; Nomad
The signature gourmet toffee combines the smoothness of Ghirardelli chocolate with the richness of perfectly textured toffee to create an irresistible treat.

It's available in as little as 6 oz. packages, making it a yummy stocking stuffer! $7+; HampshireToffee

I’ll buy myself the one up band for working out. Would help to keep my hair off my face. Doesn’t hurt that it looks very stylish. Can definitely use some fashion in the gym.
