What an amazing find for stocking stuffers! To be honest, I never would have imagined a place called The Container Store would have such a variety of non-container items available. I can’t wait to show you some of the neat products that are really just perfect for stockings or last minute gift ideas!
These adorable stickers are a mess-free alternative to nail polish for little hands. They come in two design options: butterflies and zoo animals. What I love about these is little girls are able to apply them on their own. They are both easy to put on (peel and stick) and easy to remove (they peel right off!). Each sheet comes with 25 stickers, which is enough to do 5 hands. To me, it would have made more sense to have 20 (four hands= 2 full sets) or 30 (six hands=3 full sets) stickers. Maybe one of the five sets is a backup in case a sticker falls off or some other mishap befalls some of them.
The sizes work best for 3-9 year olds (they should not be used under three due to choking hazards). There is a handy guide at the bottom of the sheet to aid you in selecting the right sticker for each fingernail.
This is a handy little device which makes a perfect gift for the techy/gadgety person in your life. It is great for cleaning keyboards, remote controls, cameras, and any other device with small nooks and crannies that collect dust and debris.
I was able to tidy up a keyboard in under a minute using this clever tool.
One side is a soft bristle brush which can be used to remove dust and crumbs from the surface. The other side is a silicone wedge which can get into the cracks to pull out lint and other dirt collected there.

This stuff is incredible! Bring the beach inside this winter with a package of Kinetic Sand from the Container Store. It is made of 98% sand but feels much smoother and is far easier to clean up!
It has a similar texture to brown sugar but without the stickiness associated with it. This sand does not stick to your hands and leave tiny little particles either!
It is amazingly easy to shape and mold and can be a real creative outlet for kids and adults!
For that special someone who is always on the go, these specially designed travel slippers are going to be a welcome surprise! They are made of neoprene so they are water resistant and insulated. They have an anti-slip sole in case you happen to be wearing them on a rush through the airport. The greatest feature is that the sole is flexible and lightweight enough for the shoes to fold completely in half.
These take up almost no room at all while providing a comfy little shoe. With three patterns to choose from, you are sure to find the perfect traveling shoe for lounging about the hotel or navigating the aisle in an airplane.
I am not sure what it is about the Lightning Cable from Apple, but we have had three in which the wire insulation has started to degrade. While it hasn’t effected the function of the cable, it looks terrible and runs the risk of shorting out when it comes in contact with something else.
Sugru has created a really helpful material that can be used to repair or prevent this type of wear and tear on wires and cables. It starts off as a tacky, clay-like substance which can be molded to any shape needed. We formed it around our damaged cable to create a new layer of insulation. After it is exposed to the air at room temperature, the Sugru Self-Setting Rubber begins to cure. After it has cured, it is safe to use from -58° to + 256° F and it bonds completely to the cable.
In addition to insulating electronics, this material can be formed to repair or improve many other household items and is also UV-resistant, waterproof, dishwasher and microwave safe. To fill the stocking of a gadget lover in your family with Sugru, visit your local Container Store or click here.
