2.  Apple iPod shuffle – The perfect stocking stuffer for music lovers on the go. Bring this tiny Ipod with you anywhere – great for road travel, air travel, hiking, jogging, etc. The built in clip holds securely in place, even during intense exercise. The best thing about this Ipod is the minuscule size; you can easily attach it to any piece of clothing without any added weight. Bonus – it lasts super long on a single charge. I use mine all week for running before another charge.

3.  Hasbro Travel games – Hasbro has a fantastic selection of fun miniature versions of their classic games like Yahtzee!, Clue, Trouble, Guess Who?, and Connect 4.
