Our Holiday Gift Guide, Part Three: Stocking Stuffers

Looking for holiday gift ideas? Today, in the third and final part of our 2023 holiday gift guide, check out a few of our favorite stocking stuffers and small gifts. Our shop is full of cute and tiny things that are perfect to slip into a stocking!

Writing Tools

In the shop we have a zillion writing tools, and we don’t like to play favorites. We love them all, from inexpensive colorful ballpoints and slick mechanical pencils to the fanciest fountain pen. Writing tools make great stocking stuffers (in our stationery-obsessed opinion): they’re small, useful, affordable, and often great fun.

We won’t say these six writing tools are our favorites (we wouldn’t want any hurt feelings amongst the inventory), but we can wholeheartedly recommend them for being useful, popular, and super fun! 

  1. Begoody Flexible Pencils: Bright and bendy!
  2. Sofun Wiggle Pens: They jiggle while you write
  3. Zebra Sarasa Gel Pens: A super-smooth writing bestseller
  4. Zebra Mildliner Highlighters: Soft and colorful, great for journaling 
  5. Platinum Preppy Fountain Pens: An excellent, affordable beginner fountain pen
  6. Ohto Sharp Wooden Mechanical Pencil: Chunky and classic, a great writer
