As the holidays draw near, there’s usually a major focus on big-ticket gift times. But what about the smaller products that you need to buy? They’re perfect for stocking stuffers, secret Santas, or office gifts for that special cubicle buddy. These purchases don’t have to be extravagant or expensive; they just need to show that you put some thought into picking them out.

We’ve found a selection of gifts that are either small in size, small in price, or both. All have a creative bend to them, like a Stranger Things candle holder that's a subversive twist on conventional decor. Another product we like is an embroidery kit that's perfect for someone who enjoys sewing and loves llamas. These items are certainly quirky, but they're sure to make your recipient's life a little brighter—just as gift-giving should be.

So whether you need secret Santa gifts, stocking stuffer ideas, or a great office gift, check out our entire list below. For even more shopping ideas, we’ve got a whole category dedicated to creative products.
