Are you looking to fill those stockings with more than candy this year? I've gathered the best non-candy unique stocking stuffers that will be great for just about anyone. We've got a little something for everyone. Check out my 25 Unique Stocking Stuffers Gift Guide and be sure to pick a little something up for yourself. You're worth it!
25 Best Unique Stocking Stuffers
Every year my goal is to stuff the stockings with gifts that will be useful for my loved ones. Yes, I throw some sweet treats into the stockings but I always put at least one little gift that will be loved as much as the gifts under the tree. It's fun to see the surprise on those sweet faces when they pull something they love out of the stockings. You can do the same with these gift ideas:
1. Luv Scrub
Best for: Men, Women, or Teens
Use with your favorite soap or shower gel. Each experience is a luxurious one. Expect lather for days. This would go great in the stocking of any man, woman, or teen who's skin needs a little love.
2. USB Mix Tape
Best for: Men, Women, or Teens
Who wants to just text your long distance girlfriend and tell them you just sent them some music in an email for their birthday? Where's the magic in that?!
Milktape was made so you can give and receive digital files as something meaningful, something real. The beauty of Milktape is the plain white cover and mostly blank label. You can not only customize the inside with music, but the outside as well. So the whole tape becomes much more than just a USB mix tape, it becomes “Jane's Fantastic Flash Drive Mix” or “Ben's Bangin' Beats” or “Cassidy's Cassette of Many Colors.”

18. Pokémon Pikachu Portable Charger
Best for: Teens
Pokémon being used for more practical purposes is pretty common. The classic image of the Pikachus being used to power a generator at a Pokémon Center during a blackout comes to mind. We aren't asking for anything quite as extravagant, mind you. All we need is up to three more hours of juice for our phones. We figure that isn't asking too much by comparison, right?
The Pokémon Pikachu Portable Charger features one of your favorite little electric type Pokémon all ready to Thunder Shock that phone of yours back to life. This charger runs on batteries so if runs out of juice you can just pop in a couple more, and you're ready to go! No need to charge the charger!GET IT HERE
19. Minecraft Wither Spinner (Fidget Spinner)
Best for: Kids, Teens, and Men
When we use the word “wither” today, we generally are referring to our poor plants. But there's a now obsolete meaning of “wither” that comes from the Old English (there's an example in Beowulf), meaning “opposition” or “hostility.” And that's definitely appropriate for Minecraft's Wither. The phrases “prehensile rib-cages” and “projectile skulls” shouldn't even exist.
Have the Wither entirely under your control with this Minecraft Wither Spinner. With a flick of your finger, you can make the side heads spin around the main head. They do NOT shoot skulls (but then, they don't drop the Nether Star either). It's small enough to stick in your pocket, but heavy enough to give you maximum spin when you're bored. Obviously, not playing Minecraft.GET IT HERE
20. Crescent Meown Bag Charm
Best for: Teen Girls
Curiosity will never kill this cat. It's pretty chill, just hanging around, clipped to your bag. The ThinkGeek-exclusive Crescent Meown Bag Charm will be your helpful, steadfast companion wherever you go. This adorable kitty cat charm has a cat face shape on one side and a puff ball on the other, where you can see the kitty ears peeking up above the fur. The fluffy side is purr-fect for cleaning the screen of your phone or tablet when it gets too many paw prints on it. Cat-astrophe averted!
Made of faux leather and faux fur, with a metal clasp and charm, this feline friend can also be an ever-present fidget toy for restless kids and adults, and for those on the spectrum. Like many cats, this little black puff ball will claim you (and your bag) as its own. You can almost hear it meow and demand attention. But this one never needs to be fed, never makes messes, and won't set off your allergies.GET IT HERE
21. Nintendo Game Boy Classic Watch
Best for: Teen Boys & Geeks
If checking a miniature Game Boy on your wrist to tell the time appeals to you much more than pulling out your phone, we're right there with you. Rather than being bothered by seeing our 800 unread notifications, we can engage in a little nostalgia time-traveling when we check the time. The only notification here is the reminder that we should pick up a Game Boy and get our 8-bit handheld gaming on, stat. It's the only accessory we really need… though we wouldn't be opposed to playing with that Pocket Sonar thingie, too.GET IT HERE

25. Five Nights at Freddy's Earbuds
Best for: Five Nights at Freddy's fans of any age
One of the things Five Nights at Freddy's excels at is reminding us to use all our senses. Especially in games 2 and 4, if you don't have headphones on while playing, that may well be a fatal mistake. Is that breathing? Did you hear footsteps? Remember: it's not paranoia if they're out to get you, and in this game they're definitely out to get you.
Show your love of Five Nights at Freddy's while you play or out in the wild with these Five Nights at Freddy's earbuds. They are made from a soft material so that if you fall asleep with them in, you won't wake up with an earache. However, if you fall asleep while playing, you're gonna wake up dead. We really can't help you with that.
