Givebacks Gift Guide: The Best 2023 Stocking Stuffers

Stockings are one of our very favorite holiday traditions. We love packing those cute oversized socks full of little delights for our loved ones—from sweet little trinkets to funny surprises to tasty treats. To help you find just the right thing, we’ve put together a list of the best 2023 stocking stuffers for anyone you’re shopping for (or yourself*).

And the best part about all of the ideas in this Givebacks gift guide? They’re available from Givebacks' store partners! That means that when you click through and shop, your qualifying purchase will automatically give back to the cause of your choice, at no extra cost to you!  

*Because if something catches your eye, who says you can’t buy it and slip it into your own stocking?! You make the rules!

2023 Stocking Stuffers You’ll Love:

Macaron erasers

Make cleaning up mistakes a little more fun with these darling pastel-colored erasers that are shaped like macarons and smell like them, too!

Spiced orange shower gel

The smell of spiced orange just screams holidays—and this seasonal (and vegan!) body wash will give you cozy vibes all winter long.

Dog chip clips

The canine lover in your life will delight in these little chip clips that come in a variety of breeds (and keep a variety of snacks fresh!). 

Cat chip clips

But if they’re more of a cat person, these 2023 stocking stuffers come in the feline variety, too!

Eye and lip gel patches

The Container Store has more than just organizing gear! Treat a loved one to some self care with this set of rejuvenating eye gels and hydrating lip patches.

Playful socks

Everyone needs new socks! But think beyond the holiday patterns for your 2023 stocking stuffers and find the pair that best fits their personality, from Saturn to skiers to coffee prints.

Star stickers

Go for a good old dose of nostalgia with star stickers that remind them of childhood good times. You can go for the classic or mix things up with sparkly gold or giant rainbow options.

Extra water bottle straws

You might not be able to fit an entire trendy Stanley bottle into their stocking, but you can squeeze in a pack of straws for the loved one who’s always losing theirs! 

Retro candy

From barley pops to Sky Bars, give them a taste of the past with old-fashioned candy they won’t easily find in today’s stores.

Freeze-dried minnows

If you’re the type to make a stocking for your pet (we totally are), these freeze-fried fishies are sure to be a hit. Just don’t put them out too early unless you want your stocking to be knocked off the mantle!

Facial spray

For a little touch of luxury, treat them to this Evian spritz. It’s great for hydration and doubles as a setting spray. Plus, it just feels really nice!

Perfume sampler

These fun, travel-sized spray perfumes let them explore a variety of scents. They're made with natural and essential oils and come in cute little glass bottles.

Extra-long phone charger

Ok, it might not be as fun as the other gifts on our list, but anyone who’s tried to use their phone while charging it knows how handy a super-long charger can be! 

Wordle pin

This cute little pin is sure to make the avid Wordler in your life S-M-I-L-E. Bonus: If you’re looking for more 2023 stocking stuffers and they’re a fan of other NYT games, you can find pins for those, too!

Tea infuser

For someone who loves sipping tea as much as they love spilling it,  this little sloth tea infuser makes a fun and silly surprise. 

Hand cream set

Winter is the season of dry hands—but not if you slip this little set into their stocking. It’s made with shea butter and comes with three lovely scents.

Mini loaf pan

When you want a treat, but don’t feel like cooking up a big batch, this mini loaf pan is just the thing! Tip: Try pairing it with a scaled-down recipe for your famous banana bread.

Super Mario Uno Cards

Uno is one of the simplest and most fun card games, making these decks great 2023 stocking stuffers for almost anyone. And this Super Mario themed-set gives you double nostalgia!

Jibbitz Mystery Pack

Know someone who loves their Crocs? Surprise them (literally) with a mystery pack of Jibbitz. No matter what they get, they’ll be fun to open!


If someone says they don’t need a headlamp, they’re wrong. From late-night dog walking to searching for something in the dark, a wearable flashlight always comes in handy.
