Stocking Stuffers for Your Favorite Vagabonds

by Debra Bokur

Dec 4, 2023



Looking for fun things to stuff into the toe of a few holiday stockings? Here are some great choices:

Topping the “why didn’t someone think of this sooner” list is MIVA Recovery bottle, which doubles as a water bottle and muscle roller. Inside, double-walled steel reservoirs keep your favorite beverage hot or cold for hours. Features include a flip straw lid, flexible carrying handle, and sizing that accommodates the cup holders on most treadmills and fitness machines. Outside, the clever design is made of rubber surfaces mimicking the texture of the human hand, with four separate faces designed to deliver a muscle-relaxing massage experience. It’s completely safe to toss in the dishwasher and comes in colors including Onyx, Sage, Lavender Haze, Sand, Rose and Dusty.

As clearly stated on its website, the founders of Arcade want to change the way you think about belts. Perfect for life and travel, Arcade Atlas Belts look great, are machine washable, adjust to a perfect fit, have a lifetime guarantee, boast performance stretch and won’t set off the alarm at TSA airport checkpoints. The patented, three-piece A2 buckle and performance stretch material conform to your individual body and release easily. The belt’s webbing is created from responsible REPREVE polyester, comes in multiple color choices and can be machine-washed and dried.

Is there a blossoming mixologist on your stocking list? Help them get crafty with a non-alcoholic cocktail shrub-making kit from Grow and Make. These refreshing vinegar and botanical drinks were enjoyed in ancient China and date back to colonial times in the United States. Kits from Grow and Make include easy-to-follow instructions, recipes and everything necessary: two glass bottles with caps, vintage-style labels, drink garnishes, straws, a metal strainer, a funnel and muddler; plus botanicals including lavender buds, hibiscus flowers, rose petals, anise seed, and pink and black peppercorns. The company makes a host of similar kits to create everything from soaps to lotions, hot sauces to cheeses, and chocolates to a personal tea herb garden.



Regardless of whether your travel involves boats, mountain paths or historic cities, a good easy- to-pack pair of binoculars is always great to have on hand. Standard Issue Waterproof Binoculars are rugged, fog-proof, have twist-up eyecups and multicoated scratch-resistant lenses, provide outstanding optics, and offer a wide field of view. They come in a wide range of bright colors so they’re easy to keep track of. Add a lightweight Photo Rig II Smartphone Adapter, constructed with a high-impact ABS frame and stepped grip for secure holds. It also features a self-centering frame, fits all binoculars and monoculars and has a spring-loaded clamp to accommodate most modern smartphones.

Made entirely in the United States, the line of handcrafted notebooks from Planner Perfect have bindings sewn in Nebraska and original artwork created by Jenny and Taylor Penton. The selection includes monthly and yearly journals, traveler’s notebooks, spiral-bound notebooks and school planners created from durable art paper. There’s also a collection of gorgeous, supple leather planners and traveler’s notebooks crafted from full-grain American leather, available in a host of designs and colors — perfect for journaling, trip planning and travel musings.

Still need to fill the toe of that holiday stocking? A pair of FlipBelt tights is the perfect fit. FlipBelt is already known for its sleek, hands-free, stretchy, multi-pocket running belts designed to carry keys, a mobile phone, identification, passport, cash, credit cards or even medical supplies without bouncing or chafing. Now, its line of leggings — including a cozy thermal weight option — comes with an integrated FlipBelt waistband with all of the great features of the original belt. Made from moisture-wicking 75-percent polyester and 22-percent Spandex with a super soft thermal lining, they’re ideal for sightseeing, travel and early morning or night runs. Along with a reflective logo, these leggings have side pockets, a rear zipper pocket, an internal key ring, large phone pockets and a selection of front pocket openings. Styles for both men and women include joggers, shorts, compression pants, running sleeves and a range of accessories.
