Stocking Stuffer Gift Ideas Him & Her

Whether you’re looking up womens gift guide or gift guides for men, both lists probably include stocking stuffers. Once you’ve shopped and selected your “big gifts” of the season, it’s time to focus on the smaller items you’ll be stuffing into stockings for everyone on your list. In some ways, this is one of the most enjoyable aspects of holiday shopping—finding all those fantastic odds and ends that round out the holiday gift-giving experience.

But stockings offer limited space, so you have to be a bit cunning when it comes to choosing delightful stocking stuffers. Stockings will be going up on chimneys any day now, so let’s have a quick chat about ideas for stocking stuffers for her and him.

What Gifts Make Good Stocking Stuffers?

At the end of the day, a good stocking stuffer can be any gift that fits inside the stocking. But certain items seem to crop up again and again in stockings on Christmas morning. They tend to fall into categories like:1

  • Fruit 
  • Chocolates
  • Perfume or cologne

There’s always room for fluff in a stocking. For example, small pieces of candy are perfect for filling the toe. But for grown-ups, the best ideas for stocking stuffers tend to be useful items that people need every day. That includes items like socks, underwear, and other sleepwear.

To that end, here are our favorite sleepwear and loungewear ideas for a stocking.

#1 Zen Ribbed Crew Neck Sweater 

This year, your Christmas stocking stuffer gifts should include our Zen Ribbed Sweaters for men and women. They offer unbelievable comfort and an attractive ribbed texture that elevates that standard sweater look.

With styles for men and women, these sweaters are the perfect gift because they’re:

  • Available in a variety of colors
  • Perfect for layering with other items
  • Medium-weight for enhanced comfort 

A sweater might be an unusual stuffer idea considering its size, but if you have a bigger stocking and roll the sweater right, you could make someone's holiday season.

#2 Socks

Cozy socks are iconic among fun stocking stuffer ideas, and it’s no wonder why.2Socks are a practical gift that fits perfectly inside a stocking. But they also come in a nearly infinite range of styles, prints, and patterns that make them easy to individualize.

Tommy John’s Second Skin Casual Socks for men and women look amazing stuffed in a stocking and on your feet. Plus, we’ve designed them to promote proper blood circulation in your feet and given them a Comfort Cuff so you can avoid those annoying red marks around your ankle.

That said, occasions aren’t always casual. Our Stay-Up Dress Socks are the perfect stocking stuffer for the man who needs to dress up from time to time.

#3 Zen Waffle Lounge Henley 

You’d think cozy socks would take the award for “best all-around” on the list of stocking stuffer ideas, but we can’t hand out trophies without also considering another crowd pleaser—the Henley. Men and women alike adore henleys, and at Tommy John, we’ve turned the classic shirt into a stellar piece of clothing.

The Zen Waffle Lounge Henley for men and women uses our innovative stretch fabric for a loungewear shirt. The result is a piece of clothing with enough give to keep you comfortable and enough structure to hold itself together whether you’re taking it easy or running around town. Yup—it’s a great gift with all the convenience of loungewear that’s suitable for inside and outside the home.

The Zen Waffle Lounge Henley features:

  • Quick-dry fabric that keeps you warm and prevents sweat
  • Softly textured outside and supremely cozy inside 
  • Versatile stretch tri-blend fabric

#4 Zen Ribbed Tee and Short Set

Our list of Christmas stocking stuffers ideas wouldn’t be complete without our Zen Ribbed Tee and Short Sets. Sure, it might be winter now, but it won’t last forever. When things start to warm up, an incredibly comfortable short set for relaxing at home will come in handy.

You can’t find fabrics much cozier than our Zen Ribbed fabric. You could say the same for our short sets. We’re talking lightweight shirts for no-fuss layering, adjustable waistbands for guaranteed comfort, and fits as relaxed as your loved ones will be once they slip them on.

#5 Underwear

This stocking stuffer might seem a little outside of the (gift) box, but hear us out—a few pairs of luxurious underwear can reinvent your wardrobe from the inside out. Plus, it’s a gift many of us might not always splurge on for ourselves—meaning they might make a surprisingly welcome addition to your guy or gal’s underwear drawer.

Try stuffing his stocking with a pair (or several) that elevate his usual underwear, such as:

  • Our 360 Sport Trunk for the athletic guys, with stretch fabric and a Stay-Put waistband to make his next workout a breeze.
  • Our Apollo Trunk for an upgrade take on everyday wear, plus an unbelievably soft fabric that battles sweat and keeps you up to 7 degrees cooler.
  • A Premium Starter Pack with three premium trunks, including two pairs of our light-as-a-feather Air Trunk and one Apollo Trunk.

Or, try adding a few pairs of these luxury briefs to her stocking:

  • A three-pack of our Women’s Air Brief will feel barely there, with a cotton gusset for an airy feel and a no VPL (Visible Panty Line) Guarantee that makes them suitable under any outfit.
  • Our Second Skin Brief, Micro Rib comes with a micro modal fabric and ribbed texture that not only looks super stylish, but also helps to boost airflow.
