2015 was, no doubt, the year of the enamel pin. Everywhere you looked, from fashion websites to style blogs, everyone was rocking at least one of these pins on their denim jackets, shirt collars and tote bags. This accessory trend was hard to resist for buyers and sellers both. It seemed like every indie brand and artist was putting their own spin on this classic accessory. There were pins that could be worn to look like you had talking animals on your shirt, pins in the shape of your favorite beauty product and pins that looked like ‘90s television icon Clarissa Darling and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The chances were pretty big that anything you could think of — whether it was your favorite fictional character or your favorite food  — would be readily available in pin form.  

Some people now have entire collections dedicated to lapel pins, which is really not too surprising because there are SO many cute ones to choose from. From cute kitties to ‘80s heartthrobs, anything you could possibly want is there. It’s a subtle way of adding a little bit of oomph to your leather motorcycle jacket or fuzzy sweater. Here are 15 hilarious and adorable enamel pins that would make the best stocking stuffers.
