They say it’s the little things that count. And, after a peek at our carefully curated collection of little gifts and stocking stuffers, we think you’ll agree. From the hottest tiny toys to creative things you might not have thought about wrapping up, the 18 things below will give Santa’s helpers (ahem, you) some serious street cred. Click through the gallery to see them all.

Sweet Seeds

These lovely lollipops from Amborella Organics make a Tootsie Roll pop look downright boring. Not only are they offered in unique flavors such as Vanilla & Hibiscus, Rosemary & Mint, Peach & Marigold and more, but each one also contains an heirloom seed (inside the biodegradable stick!). Your little ones can enjoy their treat—made with natural dyes BTW—and then everyone can plant their sticks with care. When it’s time, the seeds will produce a flower or herb!

Available at, $27 for 12.
