Funko Pop! Deluxe: Star Wars Duel of The Fates, $30

Santa’s Natural Candles, $15

CBS News is already anticipating more supply-chain and shipping delays stemming from railway staffing shortages this holiday season. So if you want to ensure you can get all the gifts on their list this Christmas, it’s advisable to start shopping now.

A little trickier to pick out than other types of presents, stocking stuffers traditionally need to check a few boxes: They should be somewhat inexpensive and small enough to slip into a stocking. Plus, often, a stocking stuffer should be a little more clever and fun than the average gift.

With that in mind, CBS Essentials curated these small and inexpensive gifts that will spread the most joy on Christmas morning for the least amount of cash. Ahead, the best stocking stuffers to give kids and adults this year from Amazon, Best Buy and more.
