Check out our 10 Stocking Stuffers for Country Music Fans list and get to ordering -- it's almost Christmas!
Love Blake Shelton? Well, who doesn't? This awesome two-sided key chain not only features a handsome photo of the 'Honey Bee' hitmaker, but it acts as a means of promoting everyone's favorite artist and his new album, too, making for the snazziest little key holder (and stocking stuffer). While the key chain itself won't tell jokes, perhaps it will remind you of how hilarious country's troublemaker is; plus, we suspect it will be much easier to keep track of your keys if Blake is at stake!
Texas foursome Eli Young Band are relatively new to the mainstream country scene, but with a No. 1 single on the charts, they're gaining fans so fast we're sure they can hardly keep up. This black rubber EYB bracelet is an easy way to prove that you're a diehard country fan, and it features a line from the lesser-know, song 'Even If It Breaks Your Heart,' which appears on the 'Crazy Girl' EP -- so you'll look especially knowledgeable wearing it!
If you haven't snagged a copy of Scotty McCreery's album yet, well... what are you waiting for? Christmas is the perfect time to fall in love with a new country artist, and despite his young age, the 'American Idol' winner is as country as they come. Plus, if you order this special stocking stuffer straight from McCreery's site, you'll get a free poster on top of the CD! (Stick that under the Christmas tree.) That's as good of a reason as any, but if you need more incentive, trust us when we say you'll want to be able to say you knew this guys' hits from 'way back when.'
Want to carry country's hottest trio with you wherever you go? With these Lady Antebellum buttons pinned to you, you're sure to own the night, if you catch our drift. This stocking stuffer-sized pack of pins comes with four buttons, one for each member of the Lady A trio and one to represent the band as a whole. Line them up on your jacket and show your love for the 'Need You Now' hitmakers, or leave Dave and Charles behind so that Hillary can shine. Whatever you do, make sure you snag a pack of these before they're gone!
OK, this Luke Bryan cooler won't fit inside of a stocking, but it could be pretty useful to use like one. It'd be the perfect place put all of your country music stocking stuffer goodies. Trust us: Come next summer, you'll appreciate having this handy bag (which, coincidentally, holds beers too) instead of a more traditional, use-once-a-year stocking. You can take it with you wherever drinks are needed and promote the 'Country Girl (Shake It for Me)' hitmaker at the same time.
While Dolly Parton's new 'Better Day' laminate won't technically get you all access backstage at her shows, it will make you feel like a star. Sport this pass, which features a photo of the 'Jolene' hitmaker herself, around your neck for a surefire cure to the no-concert blues. It's not just a necklace -- it's a unisex way to commemorate your favorite glorious blond starlet's most recent album and tour, too!
In order to learn to pick like the best twangers in the biz, you'll need a fancy set of guitar picks. Why not make them the Band Perry picks? That way you can show off your favorite country group right on your music gear. Not to mention these tiny plastic picks are so handy, they'll not only fit in a stocking, but in your pocket, too!
Really, could this stocking stuffer scream Miranda Lambert a little bit louder? This dog tag is an essential unisex gift that encourages you to open a cold one at any given moment and support the female songstress, as it reads "Let's have one 'Four the Record'" and includes the web address to the 'Baggage Claim' singer's site. It's the gift that keeps on giving the greatest gift of all: the gift of beer in your mouth.
If you didn't love playing cards before, you will with Tim McGraw's deck. While these may seem like an ordinary stack, the special cards feature a black and white silhouette of the country music icon on the backside, making them a perfect stocking stuffer for any country music fan. We think McGraw's mug should have appeared on the ace of hearts.
Nothing will brighten your Christmas tree like a Taylor Swift guitar ornament -- not even the lights! Despite its tiny size, the miniature version of Swift's guitar features delicate details, like an itty bitty strap, strings, glitter and even the singer's signature. This essential ornament was modeled with the 21-year-old superstar's 2010 hit in mind, and it even plays the song. You won't be able to resist singing the lyrics each time you hang it on your tree for years to come. Whether you're into the smell of a real fir or pine, or if you like a less traditional fake white or colorful tree, this guitar-shaped ornament is the icing on the cake to your Christmas decorating needs.
