New information from Parks Association indicates that streaming sticks from companies like Google, Roku and now Amazon will be one of the hottest stocking stuffers of the holiday season.

The low price points on these streaming sticks makes for good stocking stuffers, and it looks like about 25 percent of dedicated streaming media devices are given as gifts anyway in 2014.

“In 2013, 46% of Google Chromecasts and 37% of streaming media players, such as the Roku 3 and Apple TV were purchased as gifts,” said Barbara Kraus, director of research at Parks Association. “The two new streaming sticks this year — the Roku HDMI Streaming Stick and the Amazon Fire TV Stick — have similar functionality as the regular streaming players at a much lower price point.”
