There are a lot of rules when it comes to stocking stuffers—the items have to be small enough to fit, cheap enough to justify buying several of them and, perhaps most importantly, they can’t look like a bunch of random shit you bought at the drugstore in a panic the day before Christmas. Never fear—we’ve rounded up 11 awesome products, all under $30, that will leave the recipient pleasantly surprised when they stick their hand in an old sock.

Eggnog & Chill Mug ($19, Seltzer Goods): Forget Netflix and Chill—around the holidays, the Eggnog becomes priority #1.
