Tis the season to stop stuffing your stockings with lame gifts like mandarin oranges and scratch tickets that never win

Posted by: Emily Beers

Stuffing stockings is a stressful endeavour. It’s usually left until the last minute—after you’ve already spent too much money on other presents—and you end up buying whatever useless stocking trinkets that Walmart happens to be selling at the till.

From ugly leg warmers, to that plastic moose that poos brown jelly beans, to the wrong kind of shampoo for your hair—the list goes on. Let’s be honest now, nobody needs another post-it-note pad, and that annual stick of deodorant has become predictable and unexciting. 

It doesn’t have to be this way. Stuffing stockings with practical gifts that will be appreciated by the recipient just takes a little planning. 

5 Reasons RIPT Makes a Good Stocking Stuffer

5. Broad:

RIPT is useful for all hand-sport athletes, from CrossFit athletes, to gymnasts to rowers, to weightlifters, to KB and parkour enthusiasts, and even for those who just get dry hands in the winter.

4. Convenient:

RIPT’s DAILY DOSE and QUICK FIX are packaged in a convenient chapstick-like tube, so they won’t explode in your purse or your pocket the way a tube of polysporin does. And they won’t take up space like that giant vat of vasoline.

3. Practical:

Often times, rejected stocking items—like the questionable bacon-scented body lotion—sit in your drawer for months after Christmas, and eventually get thrown out. RIPT actually serves a practical purpose: It thins your callouses, heals your rips, and keeps your hands healthy to tackle whatever hand sport you’re into.

2. Multi-Dimensional:

Not only does RIPT prevent and heal your hand ailments, it also makes an effective chapstick, and can be used on the dry skin on your heels, too. I’ve even used QUICK FIX to numb the pain and speed the healing time of the chafing on my ass from a bike ride gone bad. 

1. Surprise:

While I will never totally lose my childhood love for stockings, they have become monotonous and predictable. They always promote overindulging in chocolate and jelly beans, and I’m yet to win any money from a stocking scratch ticket. RIPT will add that moment of surprise to your stocking experience this year and will make you feel like an excited child again.
