We've all been there before: it's your favorite time of year, but you just never got around to buying those stocking stuffers for your loved ones.
Hopefully, you never find yourself in such a fix, but if you do, here are 10 gifts (in no particular order) you can print before Christmas morning rolls around:

Articulated Christmas Toys
Little toy figurines are fun, so why not give them a 3D printed, Christmas spin? These articulated toys print in one piece, with built-in joints hidden all over the place. Looks even better with a little paint!
