Buzz Gift Guide: Stocking Stuffers!

Welcome back to my Buzz Gift Guide series for all the entertainment lovers in your life. I've covered a lot of different categories over the past couple of weeks to help you cross off the TV, movie, and music buffs on your list. Today I've got some ideas for smaller-sized gifts to slip into stockings.

iPod shuffles continue to impress me with their affordable price and cute, tiny size. They're a great gift for an active music-loving friend but they're also good for your less-is-more friends who don't need all the bells and whistles (or storage space, for that matter) of a larger, more expensive MP3 player. Plus, they come in really fun colors. And to go with the shuffle, consider these comfy-looking clip-on headphones.

It's possible that some of your geekier friends will get a kick out of these Star Wars-inspired USB flash drives (hands down, my favorite is the C-3PO one). For the know-it-alls in your life (or the wannabes), these trivia cards are fun, especially if you've got another week or so with the fam and need to pass the time. Finally, some cute TV-related ideas: Little Lost Kubrick figures, and the star mugs that Kelly made for the Dunder-Mifflin coworkers who showed up to her America's Got Talent finale party.

I didn't mean to nit-pick, and I totally understand that there are different budgets. Mine just happens to be small! :)

Sometimes it is fun to sneak a more expensive gift into the stocking. :) My dad used to slip jewelry into my mom's and she would give him like NFL tickets or something. So, I think it would be kind of fun to open up that stocking and find your new Shuffle or something similar. Keep the person guessing :).

Stocking stuffers vary from year to year in our house, depending on what other "big" gifts are under the tree. Sometimes we have fruit, candy bars and toothbrushes; other years our "big" (i.e. more expensive gifts that are stocking stuffer size)gifts like jewelry (and yes, Shuffles)show up in the toes. Just depends. Buzz, I like the range of suggestions; my wheels are rolling now.

Hey guys, thanks for the feedback! Everybody and every budget is different, and we've tried to cover a wide range here. Obviously, not all of these will be stocking-stuffer-worthy gifts for everyone. They're just some ideas to get the wheels turning if you're stuck trying to figure out what to buy. For the record, one of my favorite places to find stocking stuffers, entertainment-related and otherwise, is the $1 bins at Target!

Ditto girls- I bought myself a shuffle a few weeks ago and I wouldn't have every considered $50 to be a stocking stuffer-worthy price. In fact I think a shuffle, despite it's size, would make a great "normal" gift. . . haha more or less exactly what JustSomeChick said!

I was thinking that too. Our stocking stuffers are never that expensive! They are just a few dollars each and usually fun little stuff not "real presents"One year my mom put silly string at the bottom of everyone's stocking and made us pull it out at the same time. Of course mom knew it was silly string and had her lid off and squirting everyone before we even realized what it was. That was a very fun Christmas!!!Oh and then we realized that the stuff is flammable and we had an open fire in the fireplace ... lol... we were all running to open windows and doors. Scary then, funny now :)

I'm with you, keiren... My idea of stocking stuffers does not include gifts that are more expensive than those under the tree.

A forty dollar flash drive as a stocking stuffer? Umm...you heard about this little thing called a recession?
