A holiday tradition, stocking stuffers are a fun activity that families and friends love to take part in addition to gift-giving. As the Christmas and holiday break approach, the rush for gift shopping intensifies. What most people forget, however, is to pick out some smaller and helpful gifts to fit inside a stocking! While candy, socks, and small toys are a stocking stuffer favorite, here are some more innovative stocking stuffer inventions that are sure to stand out and be useful for anyone your gifting this holiday season!

A Helpful Stocking Stuffer Invention

Listed as one of the best inventions made in 2010, Sugru is the world’s first mouldable glue! A great gift to give to anyone, Sugru is a mouldable glue that is designed to solve any quick fixes. Straight out of the packaging, Sugru is a mouldable, soft, malleable, playdough like substances that forms into durable and flexible silicone-like substance. After 24, the mouldable glue transforms into a strong, flexible silicon rubber that will flex with the material that is attached to the things that needed to be fixed. Sugru can work on leather, fabrics, wood, metal, and plastics to help anyone fix the things that commonly break or wear out. Additionally, Sugru is both waterproof, temperature resistant, and long-lasting meaning, once it’s bonded onto what you need to fix it, will stay in place even under harsh conditions.
