The BEST No-Waste Stocking Stuffer Ideas For Men #GiftsForYourGuy

Friends, let's talk Christmas stockings. Honestly, I've got a love hate relationship with stockings. I love the idea of stuffing small treats into the cherished stockings that we've collected over the years. Though after the many whirlwind shopping trips that I embark on each holiday season, I often find myself scrambling for last-minute items to add to our stockings. These items frequently get tossed to the side on Christmas morning (amidst the heap of wrapping paper!), and go unused. This year, I'm on a mission to stash no-waste stocking stuffers into each of our cherished stockings, with intention.

Of all of the people on my list, my husband tends to be the hardest to buy for. He isn't super picky, yet he isn't super decisive either. When it comes to getting him to share the items that top his wish list, it's kinda like pulling teeth! This year, I'm going with what he likes {and most men tend to enjoy} and stocking up early, on the BEST no-waste stocking stuffers.

I know I'm not alone in my struggle to find the "perfect" holiday stocking stuffer ideas and gifts for men, so I thought I'd share some of my BEST no-waste stocking stuffer ideas for the guys in your life, with you today!

  • Personal Care: Adding personal care items to a stocking is a total no-brainer! Everyone uses personal care items (hence no-waste!) The Gillette Justice League Gift Pack featuring Batman for $14.88 and the Old Spice Swagger Gift of Confidence Gift Set for $9.88 are available at Walmart, and contain all of the grooming and smell-goods that your guy loves and already uses every day! You can gift these to all of the guys in your life (such a great bow-and-go gift idea for men!). You could stuff an entire stocking with 1 gift set (at a pretty great price point!) My husband and my oldest son are each receiving one of these gift sets this Christmas. I love knowing that all of the items in their stockings will actually be used. Total SCORE!
  • Entertainment; Grab a new release Blu-ray / DVD (or two!) and add them to their stocking with a few bags of microwave popcorn, a box or two of movie candy, a can of their favorite soda etc. You'll have an entire movie night at-the-ready with these fun stocking stuffers. Perfect for kicking back and enjoying some quality time, over the holiday break!
  • Tunes: Everyone likes music! Gift the men in your life with a month (or two, or even a year!) of music. Several platforms allow you to purchase monthly (or annual) access to thousands upon thousands of tracks from all of your favorite artists. Just about every man I know would love to find this in their stocking this Christmas.
  • Small Tech: Nearly everyone uses a plethora of electronic gadgetry these days - grab a small portable power bank as a great no-waste stocking stuffer, for the men in your life this holiday season. This is a gift that will literally keep giving year round. Does your man love to hit the gym? How about a great new pair of sweat-resistant ear buds / headphones? Or add a small portable Bluetooth speaker to their stocking that they can enjoy at home! Small tech items make the perfect no-waste stocking stuffers!
All of these no-waste stocking stuffer ideas for men, are sure to surprise and delight the men in your life, this holiday season. So glad that my holiday shopping is nearly finished. Now, I can't wait to relax a little and enjoy the holiday fun! What are your favorite no-waste stocking stuffer ideas and bow-and-go gift ideas for men? Did I miss any?

Happy Holidays, friends!
