Ever find you’ve gotten everyone a present…except your husband?
Some years it just happens. The neighbors have their Christmas cookie plate, the teacher gifts are ready, you’ve prepped for the white elephant gift exchange for work, and you even think you’ve got equal presents for the kids.
And then comes the dreaded realization that your husband is, as of this moment, gettin’ nothin’ for Christmas, through no fault of his own.
Guys are just hard to buy for. If your husband is anything like the men in my life, he’s also probably pretty poor at articulating his wish list before New Year’s Eve.
In previous years, I’ve written huge posts about stocking stuffers for your husband, which have become some of my most popular ones. I scoured Amazon to try to find some more that were funny and practical.
So here are 10 last-minute stocking-stuffer ideas for your husband, to complement the ones I’ve already come up with:

1. Sleep Headphones ($18.97)
This is great for husbands who have a hard time falling asleep. He can pop on a podcast, white noise, or audiobook to help stop the obsessive “what time is it?! It’s been so since I slept!” merry go round.
These sleep headphones lay flat against your head as part of a headband, so they won’t hurt your ears like traditional earbuds do when you’re lying down.
They’re also great for exercising in places (like Ontario!) where the winters are cold since they fit easily under a hat and cover your ears to boot!
2. LED headlamp ($8.99)
Headlamps are great for camping, for hands free light during a power outage, or for tinkering in a tight space. They’re a nice item to have on hand for emergencies of all varieties and they’re a practical gift that’s still gets points for creativity.
Being passive aggressive is not good behavior. However, it is really fun to laugh at OTHER PEOPLE behaving badly. So pick up a daily dose of permissive fun so you can let off steam starting January 1.

4. Popcorn Seasoning Variety Pack ($14.95)
Homemade popcorn is a great snack full stop, but it’s especially great for those of us fighting the battle of the bulge. It’s easily customizable with spices, but the fat content is also controlled. It’s a really fun ritual to make popcorn before sitting down to enjoy a board game or a show each weekend.
5. Batman Knee Socks with Cape ($5.95)
Let’s all just be honest with ourselves: Edna Mode was wrong, the Caped Crusader is amazing. Let your Bruce Wayne show his true Batman colors with knee socks that come pre-caped. It’s a legitimately silly gift, but it’ll get a chuckle and that’s a win already.
Why not take it up a notch and give your husband a gift he’ll REALLY love?

It’s simple: form and function. I don’t know who your husband’s team is, but they make gloves for each one. We Canadians are always happy for a new pair of gloves, and I know I really like being able to use my phone without taking them off if I need to make a call outside in the freezing! It’s a simple gift, but one that’s sure to be a winner.
7. Bug-a-salt insect eradication gun ($39.95)
Tired of the fly swatter? Then arm your hubby with the bug-a-salt insect eradication gun. It’s a salt-shooting pistol that promises to rid your home of flying pests… while allowing your husband to add color commentary and sound effects to his fly-killing exploits. Just be sure to extract a promise that he’ll clean up the salt when he’s done.
8. Sushi Go Party game ($19.99)
Sushi Go is a really easy, fast, fun card game. The party version ups the number of people who can play to 8, which makes it a winner for most family gatherings. It’s whimsical, it’s easy to learn, and I’ve never met a person who didn’t enjoy playing it. The illustrations alone will charm any recalcitrant relative into playing.

Stabilo pens are a great, high quality pen. The world is going digital, but, let’s be honest, a post-it-note still works wonders. I love the luxury of using a pen that writes well, but most guys I know limp along with cheap pens obtained from unsuspecting hotel rooms. These are a huge step up.
10. Tire pressure gauge ($19.99)
This gauge is heavy duty and has a steampunk look that will be sure to impress, so maybe the kids won’t be scratching their heads quite as much.
