The Inventory's 2018 Holiday Gift GuidesWe've rounded up all the best gifts for everyone in your life, from outdoor adventurers, to discerning gamers, to your annoyingly fashionable and attractive friends.  

Picking out big, pricey gifts is easy. Finding inexpensive, smaller stuff for stockings, office gift exchanges, and third cousins twice removed is where gift-buying season gets tricky. That’s why we compiled this list of 150 Inventory-recommended (and actually useful) stocking stuffer ideas, all for $20 or less.*

Everything you see here is either a Kinja Deals bestseller, a reader-favorite from Kinja Co-Op, something we’ve written about on The Inventory, or a product that we use and love ourselves.


*Due to daily pricing fluctuations, these might not all be under $20 at all times, but they’re all frequently available for that price, and don’t often go much higher.
