After searching high and low to find a great Christmas gift for your husband, you finally scored the perfect present. But before you go checking his name off your list, there's one more thing you need to think about: stocking fillers. Coming up with stocking stuffers for your husband can be a challenge (especially if you've already exhausted your creative abilities on the rest of your holiday shopping). But never fear—here's exactly what to put in your husband's stocking for the perfect Christmas morning treat.

When it comes to gifts for your husband, it's always a good move to make your picks feel personal—and this is just as important for stocking stuffers as it is for big-ticket items. Think about his various interests and what he would actually use. Another important thing to keep in mind is the size of your gifts. After all, stockings generally aren't very big, and half the fun is how creative small gifts can be. Finally, while it's up to you to set your own budget, keep in mind you'll likely be picking up more than one present to fill his stocking, which can start to add up. We're sharing our top stocking stuffer ideas for every type of husband below, with most picks coming in at $25 or below.

So, what are you waiting for? One scroll through our list of the best stocking stuffers for your husband and you'll be able to officially cross him off your holiday shopping list.

1. Something For Your Forgetful Husband

Tile Mate Bluetooth tracker for keys stocking stuffer for husband

Is your S.O. always losing their keys (or their phone or wallet)? Here's a stocking stuffer idea your husband will definitely appreciate. The Tile Mate tracker hooks onto his keys so he can quickly find them the next time they're misplaced. All he has to do is use the corresponding app on his phone for easy locating within a 250-foot range. But that's not all—it also works the opposite way. If he can't find his phone, he can use his Tile Mate on his keys to force it to ring. (Yep, even if it's on silent.)

2. Something to Keep His Drink Cool

3. Something He Won't Expect

Whiskey-infused toothpicks stocking stuffer for husband

Chances are, single malt- and bourbon-infused toothpicks aren't something he'd pick out for himself (or even knows exist). But that's what makes these such a cool stocking stuffer for men who love dark liquor. Made from premium white birch and infused with 14-year-old Islay scotch whiskey and a six-year-old cask-strength Kentucky straight bourbon, they deliver a surprising flavor that'll leave him refreshed after any meal.

4. Something to Help Him Stay Hydrated

5. Something for the Chef

7. Something for the Beer Lover

If your husband loves the taste of beer straight from the tap, these stones will give his bottled or canned brew a bubbly boost. And, unlike a bulky keg, they'll fit in his stocking!
