Find the perfect stocking stuffers for the teens in your life! Teenagers might be the hardest people to shop for on the planet. This is primarily due to the fact that teenagers are very picky about what they like. Something that seems identical in the eye of a parent may be polar opposites to a teenager because of a brand name, or the edition of said item.
This being said, the reality is that it’s not always fun to shop for teenagers for Christmas. Not only are they picky, but with most boys at least, it is hard to get them to even make a list, and even harder to figure out what stocking stuffers to get them.
Because of this, I have compiled 34 fantastic stocking stuffer ideas for teens of all ages and genders. No matter your teenager’s interests or hobbies, this list is sure to have a few great ideas to pick up this Christmas for stocking stuffers for teenagers, whether they be your child, grandchild, niece or nephew, brother or sister, and more.
Many of the items on this list of stocking stuffers for teens are focused on fun Missouri gifts that will be thoughtful and won’t break the bank!
Fun Gifts and stocking stuffers for Teens In 2022
To assure you give the teens in your life great stocking stuffers this holiday season here are 34 cool gifts they will truly enjoy!
Unisex Stocking Stuffers for Teens
Here are some of the best stocking stuffers for teen boys and girls that we absolutely love for 2022. While these are geared towards teens from Missouri, most of these gifts will be great for teens from anywhere in the USA.
If you're looking for a fun stocking stuffer for the teen in your life, I suggest tickets to Silver Dollar City. While a bit on the expensive side, it's not nearly as much as going to Disneyland or any of the other east and west coast amusement parks. With all of the attractions in Silver Dollar City and the charm of Branson, anyone who likes amusement parks is sure to love it.
Spread More Movie Cheer This Year! Many people don't know this, but the biggest movie theater chain in the United States is AMC and its headquarters are located in Kansas City, Missouri. So why not show some state pride, while also giving tickets to the movies to someone (and maybe yourself too, if they decide to bring you), by getting them an AMC movie theater gift card.?
When most people think of Christmas gifts in the food category, they think of chocolate, candy canes, and other candies. A great substitution for candy is high-quality jerky. Almost everyone loves jerky, and with the Righteous Felon brand, you can pick from a plethora of flavors to find one that is best for your teen.
Most people don’t know this, but when washing your hair, using your fingers alone to work in the shampoo does not do a good job of getting the shampoo into your scalp and roots. This silicone scalp massager cleans the scalp, removes dandruff, and has a soft, nice massaging feeling. It is also the perfect stocking stuffer at only $8 on Amazon.
A funny, yet practical gift, these sprays are great for bathrooms, or just on the go in purses or backpacks. A great gift for travelers, or college students that have to use communal bathrooms. This spray will make sure the user does not offend anyone while providing a nice laugh on Christmas morning when opened.
Everyone needs some lip balm during the winter season, and Artnaturals not only has organic, cruelty-free lip balms but has a large array of great scents. You can buy single lip balms for $5, or get a pack, and put them in multiple people's stockings this Christmas, with a 6 pack for only $9.
A fantastic gift for anyone you know with curly, wavy, or frizzy hair, this brush is specially made to detangle hair without pulling or breaking hair strands. And, for only $12, it only costs a bit more than your average hair brush and will save many painful, and annoying hair pulls and tangled messes.
A great gift for anyone you know who struggles with oily skin, this face roller by Revlon is made with real volcanic stone. The roller can be used on clean skin, or on makeup throughout the day, to absorb the shine, while keeping the makeup set in place. And, being reusable and washable, the stone lasts up to 6 months, and has refill packs available, making this not only a practical gift but a great deal as well.
Something pretty much every teen has to deal with at some point is acne. Some acne might need treatment through a doctor, but for the random pimples that are bound to pop up on a teenager's face, The Might Patch is a great solution. The Mighty Patch uses hydrocolloids to reduce swelling, and suck the pimple out of the skin harmlessly and fast. This is a great stocking stuffer, and a lifesaver the night before prom, graduation or any big event, when a pimple may pop up out of nowhere.
Something everyone needs to do at least once every 2 weeks is trim their nails. Not only do long dirty nails look gross, but they can harbor bacteria and bad smells as well. This gender-neutral manicure kit comes with everything one might need to trim and clean around their nails, and is a great gift this holiday season for someone who does not have a nail care routine.
Candles are something that most teens don't like to splurge on, or even buy for themselves. This is despite the fact that most teens like a good-smelling candle to keep their dorm, apartment or house smelling nice.
Great for those who are constantly losing their keys, phone, or wallet! The Apple AirTag acts as a locating system for any item it is attached to. Currently, the Apple AirTag is on sale on Amazon, marked down from $30, to $23, so get it while the deal is still up.
Speaking from personal experience, Andy's Frozen Custard is by far the best frozen yogurt shop I've been to in Missouri. With high-quality frozen custard, and top-notch customer service, a gift card to Andy's Frozen Yogurt is a great stocking stuffer for anyone with a strong sweet tooth. Plus, their headquarters are in Springfield, Missouri, and with 117 locations, chances are there is one near you!
Did you know that Chase Candy Company operates in St. Joseph – the city where Cherry Mash was first created 100 years ago? It's also the third-oldest candy bar that was created in the country. Shop local and support one of the many candy makers from Missouri.
Valomilk was invented by accident in 1931 in the Kansas City area when a worker added too much vanilla to a batch of marshmallows. The creation was later dipped into milk chocolate. Today it is manufactured by Russell Sifers Candy Company in Merriam, Kansas.
Another Messner Bee Farm product we love is the solid perfume. This fragrance is a balance of jasmine, cassis, rose, bergamot, with a smidge of musk. It easily fits in a purse and you don't have to worry about it leaking since the warmth of your finger activates it. Apply just like normal perfume; on the sides of the neck and the inside of your wrists.
For Strange Women is an all-female indie perfume house located in Kansas City, Missouri. Perfumes are 100% natural. phthalate, paraben, synthetic, alcohol, petroleum, and cruelty-free. Choose from a wide variety of different scents to create a one-of-a-kind stocking stuffer!
Windwood Farm Soap is located in SW Missouri and has been making handcrafted skin-care products since 1990. Tiny red and pink confetti hearts are packed into this luxurious bath treat! Fragranced with a lush blend of orange, peach, cherry blossom, and white jasmine.
Another great product from Kinnaman Farms is the handmade bath salts Choose from Bergamont & Sweet Orange, Black Elderberry, Lemon & Sage, Lavender Chamomile, and Spearmint Eucalyptus. Each bag contacts five reusable tea bags to keep the botanicals from leaving a mess in your bathtub.
Instead of using a regular towel to dry hair, this microfiber towel is a great gift for those with frizzy hair, as it is made of microfiber to stop tears and the roughness that comes with a regular towel. Not only that, the design saves time, as you can just throw your hair in, instead of making a towel wrap.
Skincare is a favorite relaxing hobby for many girls, so if there is a teenage girl that you just don’t know what to get, a high-quality face mask is always a safe way to go. This mask from Etsy comes in a glass jar, adding to the personalization and thought put into the gift, rather than a prepackaged face mask from the store.
Stocking Stuffers for Teen Boys
Here are some of our favorite stocking stuffers for teen boys in 2022.
Any Kansas City Royals fan will love a new hat this Christmas, so why not get them one of the newer ones in the collection? Made to look vintage, this hat makes sure that anyone can wear it while still looking stylish, and not looking like they're just repping any old sports team.
Great for anyone who loves getting drinks or bringing drinks with them in the car, these cup coasters that represent the St. Louis Cardinals will make sure that the cup holders in your car don't get stained or sticky.
This is a great stocking stuffer for anyone with multiple men in their family. This Duke Cannon soap set comes with six different high-quality, large bars of soap with winter scents. While the price may seem a bit steep, when you think about the fact that you're knocking out stocking stuffers for multiple people with this gift set, it not only becomes cheaper but also takes some of the stress of Christmas shopping away in an all-in-one purchase.
It is time to get any teenage boy you know, whether they be your son, grandson, nephew, boyfriend, or friend a real soap this Christmas, so they can ditch the Axe body wash. A soap with good, natural ingredients is key to healthy skin and good hygiene. Therefore the selection you can find of Duke Cannon on Amazon, as well as target is a great option this holiday season.
We all know that a candle is one of the least likely things a teenage boy will buy for himself. However, we all also know how bad teenage boys' rooms can smell. This being said, a high-quality candle is a great lift that will last months to keep a boy's room smelling good, which is a present for him and anyone who comes into his room.
A great grab-and-go cologne, Outlaw solid cologne offers not only a great smell, but a cologne that a man can carry with him in his car, briefcase, or suitcase if he travels a lot. This is a fantastic gift for someone who is constantly going on business trips and doesn't want to have to worry about having his expensive cologne thrown away by TSA. As solid cologne is as it advertises, it is more of a paste than a liquid.
For teen boys, hygiene can be an issue. Most of us remember our middle school and high school days of having to smell of all the boys wearing Axe and Old Spice body sprays, so this Christmas, it is time for any teenage boy in your life to get an actual cologne. Nautica Voyage is a fantastic first option, as it is cheap, and has a light, mass-appealing fragrance, with notes of apple, lotus, oakmoss, and amber.
This Christmas, it is time to get rid of that velcro wallet your teenager has, and upgrade them to a sleek leather-style wallet. Not only will this wallet look better, it also is smaller, and easy to carry. For any boy who is still carrying around a cartoon or old wallet, this will be a great, cheap gift for them.
