The people who make these double-sided quarters repeatedly refer to it as "real," and I can't really...oh boy, this line is so applicable!...make heads or tails of what they mean by that. What real quarter has both sides the same? Are they actually intending to say, "realistic" quarter? "Real counterfeit" quarter? "Real" shady way to trick your friends and get what you want?
I'm gonna go with, all of those. The last one being the real and really good reason to stocking-stuff a double-sided quarter this year.
Slobproof Fillable Brush Pens for Paint Touch-Ups
These Touch-Up Paint Pens, fillable wands with brush ends for quickly painting over wall / ceiling / door / furniture scratches, patches, stains, and repairs, are made by the brand Slobproof. And, if the name is accurate, that alone indicates Touch-Up Paint Pens are the right product for me.
120 dB Electric Bike Horn
Sure, a 120 dB electric bike horn could be a nuisance. Say, for example, attached to the handlebars of a gang of 8-year-olds' bicycles, and sounded every half block in ear-rupturing unison, or a cacophonic orchestra, as they go for after-school joyrides around the neighborhood.
But for those same 8-year-olds, a 120 dB electric bike horn could also serve as a life-saving alert when sounded during a Stranger Danger situation. And for any cyclists, or scooterists, a super loud bike horn can grab the attention of drivers who don't see you coming up alongside them, or pedestrians focusing more on walking and texting than their surroundings.
Origami Sticky Notes
Fold your notes, messages, and nagging reminders into cranes, butterflies, boats, and other whimsical shapes that will make the words you've written look as charming as they sound. Or lessen their blow, as the case may be.
Flip-It! Bottle Emptying Kit
Flip-It! Bottle Emptying Kits come with combo caps / stands that screw onto your existing soap, shampoo / conditioners, lotion, gel, condiment, and syrup bottles - the ones that use a pump, or that have a nozzle cap, but not the Flip-It! kind that can stand on its head. Once the products get down to their last bits, and their original dispensers are useless, the Flip-It! hunkers down to stabilize the bottles upside down, allowing gravity to round up the last of the contents and corral them at the Flip-It! opening.
Colorful Flames Lighters
Colorful Flames called all the colors of the rainbow into the fires of their lighters, and...well...only two of those colors of the rainbow answered. But a lighter that flicks either a green or pink flame is still pretty cool.
Tabasco Hot Sauce Keychain
Tabasco Hot Sauce Keychain, proud piece of EDChili, at your service. The mini McIlhenny companion and spicy stocking stuffer includes a filled plastic bottle of Louisiana's finest. Sure, it's only 1/8 ounces, but that should be plenty for your Egg McMuffin, the taco truck at lunch, or a quick shot straight when your coffee doesn't do its job for you.
Vortix Mini Gun Massager
Check out the Vortix Mini Gun Massager. It's about the size of your smartphone, and weighs less than a pound. And when you apply it to tight or knotted muscles at home, at the gym, or under the table at dinner because the wicked ache in your right butt cheek is only aggravated by extensive sitting and listening to stories about your father-in-law's childhood, the Mini Gun Massager...ohhhh. Hurrrtsss ssssooooo ggggoooodddd.

Magicactus Kit - Tiny Crystal Cactus Growing Set
My mama has had a Christmas Cactus for years, but a crystal cactus? So precious and shiny and energy healing...or whatever the sayers say crystals do. I've never seen one of these small miracles. I bet my mama hasn't either, which means...one Magicactus Kit gift for Mama comin' right up.

AirSquares Gunk Removers for AirPods & Other Devices
Two things about AirSquares gunk removers for AirPods and other gunked-up electronic devices: 1) Gross; 2) I need some.
As much as I hate to admit it, I am an earwax-producing human. And no amount of time spent with EEEARS or an Elephant Ear can curtail my earwax production enough to keep globs and smears of it from transferring to my AirPods and other earbuds. And then there's my sweat. And sunscreen. And dirty fingers. Yeah, I know. Like I said, gross.

Make your favorite flicks of the 80s and 90s - and the VHS tapes that housed them - part of your EDC with these Miniature VHS Movie Keychain Charms. Available in dozens of different titles, the nostalgic trinkets are made of resin and cardstock that Mr. Zombie's Workshop finesses into 1.25" x 0.75" VHS cassette sleeve replicas.

Pit Liquor - All-Natural Whiskey & Vodka Deodorant
I always knew whiskey and vodka made me feel good, but who knew they could make me smell good too? Pit Liquor is a line of deodorants - deodorant cocktails, if you will - that use overproof whiskey and vodka as their base.
Think of all the distilleries that started making hand sanitizer when COVID hit. Pit Liquor operates under the same principle that alcohol kills bacteria, but in this case it's the wretched-smelling ones that populate your armpits, rather than the disease-spreading ones all over your hands. And unlike many commercial hand sanitizers, Pit Liquor founders Erica and Jason Feucht have developed their deodorants from all-natural, sustainable, food-grade ingredients to ensure your pimped-out, sweet-smelling pits will also remain free of toxins.
Car Engine Start/Stop Button Cover
Who better to protect your car's start / stop button from Thanos, dust, and kids' wandering fingers than an Avenger? These covers, made in the likenesses of Iron Man, Spider-Man, and Black Panther, will also look kinda cool on the ignition button, making a unique and fun superhero gift for all the Marvel fans out there.
3-Inch Air Horn
These tiny 3-inch air horns put big sound in the palm of your hand. And also the breath of your lungs. Operating off of human rather than compressed air, the 3-inch barrels require you to channel your inner boogie-woogie bugle boys and girls to create a "blaring and lucid sound" that will grab people's attention during an emergency, a boat trip, a sporting event, or an awesome audio prank.

Aaaand, at the top of the list of first world problem solutions: Diceify's Streaming Service Decider Dice.
Dr. Tung's Smart Floss Cardamom Dental Floss
This past summer I did something I don't do very often, which is go to the dentist, and after bulldozing and bludgeoning my teeth and gums they gave me the obligatory "goodie bag" of a toothbrush, toothpaste, and dental floss, except this time the dental floss was Dr. Tung's cardamom-flavored dental floss, and it changed my dental flossing life.
If a floss could ever be described as delightful, Dr. Tung's Smart Floss is absolutely delightful. Unlike the intense shots of mint and cinnamon big-brand flosses poke into your gums, the warm-spice cardamom flavor of Dr. Tung's is noticeable but subtle. Possibly because it's also all-natural. It leaves my mouth feeling fresh, clean, and even a little exotic.
Titanium Carabiner Keychain with Folding Utility Knife
A clip and a snip, a link and a slice. That's what RovyVon's U4 Titanium Carabiner Keychain with Folding Utility Knife brings to the EDC table. Or rather, your pocket, belt loop, or bag strap.
Though made of ultra-lightweight titanium that clocks the carabiner in at just 15.6 grams, the U4 can hold up to 110 pounds of dangling weight. That's a lot of keys, janitors and property managers! It's also rustproof.
Pizzas of 8 Shareable Pizza Coin
Chewy hand-tossed dough. Piles of shredded mozzarella, Thick slices of juicy pepperoni. And freshly...minted copper? Hey, who put a coin in my pizza? Or rather, who put a pizza in my coin? Meet the kinda baffling, yet also kinda charming Pizzas of 8 Supreme Pizza Coin.
Created by Shire Post Mint, this 1.61" round of metal arrives hot out of the knuckle press oven, and pre-sliced for snapping apart and sharing with up to 7 friends. Who will probably find the quirky gift kinda baffling, yet also kinda charming too.
Bird Folding Knives
No more Mr. Nice Toucan Sam! A little birdie told me these little birdies will cut ya! Sold as a set of 4, the Bird Folding Knives transform from docile, adorable parrots to toucans with bladed beaks ready to cut off your finger the next time you try to feed them some damn Froot Loops. Make nice, though, and the Bird Knives will slice up a summer peach, peel an apple, or dice some cheddar cheese cubes when you start to get hangry for a snack.
1-Second Cable Tie Opener & Preserver
While cutting cable ties is certainly on my list of Funnest Things To Do in Life - especially if they're wrapped around something fragile like glass that could potentially shatter in my face during my cutting efforts - I have to admit, being able to open them in 1 second with the Cable Tie Opener rather than my average of 30 to 75 seconds with an X-Acto or my mama's sewing scissors sounds appealing too.
Instead of cutting through them and creating more plastic trash, the Cable Tie Opener also preserves the zip ties you release from their chokehold, so you can use them to choke something else nice and tight in the future.
