10+ Last-minute Stocking Stuffers Under $55

Posted by Man Crates on

The time for Christmas is nigh, and the stockings are most likely already hung by the fire with care. Now, your mission is to fill those aforementioned stockings with A+ items. We’re talking gadgets and goodies, not candy canes and coal.No one likes a bragger, but at Man Crates, we know quite a bit about gifts for men—and it’s in the holiday spirit to pass it on.

Absinthe Making Kit ($54.90)

This tidy kit has everything he needs to make great absinthe at home in just three to five days. There's an illustrated "Discover absinthe" handbook that shows the step-by-step process for preparing this exotic elixir as well as how to perform various absinthe drinking rituals. Christmas is about to get weird.

Twelve South Mac Candle ($24)

Computers are expensive. With this candle, which has the fresh scent of a newly opened Macbook, you can remind a loved one that you’re willing to spend money on them, so long as it’s not $3,000.

Bosch Laser Measure ($30)

Honestly, this gift had us at “LASER.” But beyond the futurism is a handy, pocket-size bit of gear that can measure any surface instantly to within ⅛ of an inch. Stop fumbling with that tape measure.

Prince Pin ($20)

Look, 2016 hasn’t exactly been the easiest year. We lost Prince, Brangelina split and Discovery Channel cancelled Mythbusters. Still, raise a glass to one of America’s late heroes and end the year on a high note by gifting this snazzy pin to a fan.

Blue Bottle Perfectly Ground Coffee ($18)

The smart folks at Blue Bottle have spent their recent years pursuing something akin to coffee science, and the result has been this pre-ground, pre-portioned coffee that retains all the great tastes of fresh coffee without any work. Thank you, hipster Bill Nye.

Hide & Drink Leather Pint Sleeve ($17)

Sippy cups are for children, koozies are for frat boys, and there’s a good chance you know a modern gentleman who slots somewhere in between. Get him this to keep his bevvie chilled.

Tile Key Finder ($20)

Tile is a Bluetooth-connected device for the man who loses everything. This low profile attachment can hook on to keys, wallets, cameras or anything else one might misplace and send a beacon back to a smartphone in times of trouble.

Rogue Sriracha Hot Stout ($14)

Here’s the thing about Rogue’s Sriracha Hot Stout: Do beer drinkers want to try it? Absolutely. Are they willing to take a $14 chance? Maybe, maybe not. This, we’d argue, is the textbook definition for a gift.

Jerky Cane ($19.99)

Candy canes are for kids. So we came up with a way to restore some excitement to the cane franchise for grown men. The formula was simple. Subtract the peppermint and add a bunch of lip-smacking-good jerky.
