Elevate your stocking stuffers with these gift picks for him

Let's face it, stocking stuffers sometimes aren't all that exciting. They tend to go one of two ways: goofy gag gifts, or essentials you need but aren't all that thrilled to get (toothpaste, anyone?). But this holiday season, elevate your stocking stuffers and really make someone's day with gifts that are small but spectacular (and all under $100, too). Because good things can come in small packages.
