Stocking stuffers, for too long, have been the afterthought of Holiday giving. Sure, Tic Tacs and toenail clippers are indeed something we might need, but we can also find it at the local drugstore. How do you elevate your stocking game in 2020? Don’t worry. We’ve put together our leather-clad elves to work curating a list of badass gear and grooming go-to’s, alongside some familiar favorites. So, let’s get stuffin’.
