Splurge or Save: Stocking stuffers for her & him!

Some of my absolute favorite gifts in the past have been small enough to fit in my stocking, and I hope this post will make those you're gifting this year say the same thing.

Below you'll find a list for her, and a list for him, and we've ALSO included a “splurge or save” option for each gift.

Stocking Stuffers for Her

#1: Eye Mask

SPLURGE: ELEMIS Eye Mask: THE luxury item that I pull out when I really want to treat myself! I put this eye mask under my eyes before I apply my makeup. It takes away SO much puffiness instantly, and my makeup goes on AMAZINGLY afterward!! A true gem to open on Christmas morning.

SAVE: Wander Beauty Eye Mask: Not only is the packaging on these beauties totally gorgeous + Christmas-esque, but this eye mask brightens, hydrates, and reduces dark circles – for only $25! That's such a steal for a product with RAVE reviews.

#2: Sleep Set

SPLURGE: Slip Silk Pillow Case + Mask set: A little pricey, but SOOO worth every penny! An anti-aging pillowcase that turns back the clock each night?! Yes, please. It protects your skin, lashes, AND hair, plus the quality is unreal so it’ll last forever. It even comes with a matching silk sleep mask – SO DANG CUTE and makes for a heavenly night's sleep.

SAVE: Satin Sleep Set: If you're going for the next best thing that is a THIRD of the price, THIS IS IT. This satin set comes with a pillowcase, mask, AND scrunchie! All matching of course – the perfect stocking stuffer gift set!

#3: Detangler Brush

SPLURGE: Tangle Teezer Brush: A beloved product of many of our team members, and even though this is the “splurge” option, it's still a super reasonable price!! I may or may not think this is better than the wet brush…

SAVE: Wet Brush: But of course, we still use the wet brush a lot in our house and let me say it has saved us a LOT of tears over the years. 

#4: Belt Bag

SPLURGE: MZ Wallace Belt Bag: I've had my eye on this number for a while! Absolutely love the material and stylish look. Definitely wouldn’t be mad if Santa snuck this into my stocking this year!

SAVE: Lululemon Belt Bag: Use this bag while working out, traveling, at Disneyland, for fashion, anything! It's so versatile and fairly affordable. A favorite for sure!!

#5: Buxom Lip Gloss Set

SPLURGE: Queen’s Vault Plumping Lip Set: Feel like the QUEEN you are with this amazing set of five mini lip glosses and collagen infused lip serum – in all the popular colors! Perfect addition for someone who already owns and loves Buxom lip gloss!

SAVE: Crown Jewels Plumping Lip Set: I LOVE this set (maybe even more than the splurge) because it has my fave color, White Russian!! This is the perfect stocking stuffer gift for a girl wanting to try some new gloss.

#6: Dry Shampoo

SPLURGE: Pureology Style + Protect Refresh & Go: I LOVE Pureology products with all my heart, and this dry shampoo is THE highest rated on Sephora. I tried it for the first time last year, and YUP, it deserves to reign as highest-rated queen. It absorbs oil without drying out your hair, adds movement and light texture, and is TOTALLY color safe which is a MUST for me!

SAVE: Hairitage Day Off Tinted Dry Shampoo: Where are my brunette girls at that need alllll the dry shampoo that doesn't leave a white cast?! This dry shampoo is only $7.94 and totally a new fave of mine this past year!

#7: Blue Light Glasses

SPLURGE: All Nighter Glasses: The BEST protector against that harsh screen light from our computers, phones, and TVs…This pair is my tried and true FAVE! Since wearing these glasses, I have noticed fewer headaches, deeper sleep, and much better focus while working.

SAVE: Blue Light Blocking Glasses: Choose from SO many different colors on Amazon! I love that you can personalize this to the person you are gifting, AND it's an item that person will use every. single. day. Such a quality stocking stuffer!

#8: Cozy Socks

SPLURGE: Barefoot Dreams: If I'm at home, I'm probably wearing these socks. Like butter on my feet! Highly-rated and still highly-affordable for under $20.

SAVE: Fuzzy Slipper Socks: If you're looking to give more than just one pair, you've hit the jackpot with this five-pack. No one can EVER have enough cozy socks!

#9: Perfume

SPLURGE: Indigo Eau de Parfum: I absolutely love this warm and spicy scent that my girlfriends gifted me for my birthday last year. I'll NEVER be sad about getting perfume in my stocking – ever, ever!

SAVE: Of course try it out for yourself with the travel size!! You (and the women in your life) won’t be disappointed!

#10: Hair Growth Vitamins

SPLURGE: Hair Sweet Hair Vegan Gummies: These. vitamins. WORK. And they taste DELICIOUS. Who doesn't want longer hair, stronger nails, and more radiant skin?

SAVE: Beauty zzZz Sleep Support Supplement: Same brand, just a $10 supplement – these babies will put you RIGHT to sleep, and you will wake up feeling more rested than ever! I'm SUCH a fan.

Stocking Stuffers for Him

SAVE: F10 Portable Speaker: UNDER $20, dust-proof, waterproof, 10-hour playtime on one charge… A GREAT save option for this gift!

#2: E-Tip Gloves

SPLURGE: Etip Gloves: These gloves are so useful! There's nothing worse than your man having to choose between freezing fingers while texting you back, or keeping his hands from frostbite. Help him make the choice easier with these gloves that can be used on touchscreen devices!

SAVE: Winter Knit Gloves: With over 33,000 reviews and an overall rating of 4.5 stars, these gloves would be such a great stocking stuffer at only $10.99!

SPLURGE: Apple Smart Battery Case: How amazing is it that this phone case can charge a phone up to 50% all on its own?! It’s a lifesaver for the man who forgets to plug in his phone or uses it all day on the go. No more carrying around extra cords!

SAVE: Leather Case: I LOVE this nice looking leather case that comes in brown and black! So sleek and stylish that’ll fit perfectly in your man’s stocking!

#4: Wireless Charging Pad

SPLURGE: Duo Charger: THE charger of your dreams! Just place your device (iPhone, AirPods, Apple Watch, all of them!) on this wireless charging pad and it charges immediately upon contact. And it folds together making it easy for travel!

SAVE: Magnetic iPhone 12 Charging Pad: May not be Apple brand, but this charging pad does the same job for your iPhone for less than half of the price!

#5: Wireless Headphones

SPLURGE: Apple AirPods Pro: If the guy you're shopping for doesn't already have AirPods, you need to make it happen! Neil is OBSESSED. So great for running, traveling, listening to podcasts, all the things. Plus, this updated version is NOISE CANCELING. (Can I buy these for myself and wear them around the house? Asking for a friend.)

SAVE: Sweat Resistant Wireless In-Ear Headphones: Skullcandy is the TRUE O.G. when it comes to earbuds. My dad used to get us these for Christmas every year and we were ALWAYS so excited! And at $41.99, they're a great gift for a great price.

#6: Card Case

SPLURGE: Carbon Fiber Money Clip Card: Neil has used this card case for a year and LOVES it. It's indestructible and very high quality! So slim and fits in any pocket.

#7: Hair Dough

SPLURGE: Hair Dough: I gifted this to Neil and it's his new all time favorite!! He loves it so much, it's all he wants to use. AND this splurge is more of a low-end splurge if you’re wanting to really treat your man. 

SAVE: Ultra Glued Invincible Styling Hair Gel: UNDER $5, this styling gel is a CLASSIC and there's a reason it's so loved across the board. A tried-and-true stocking stuffer staple for any man on your list!

SPLURGE: Blue Light Filtering Glasses: Again, the BEST protector against harsh screen light from computers, phones, and TVs…and I just love this classy pair!

SAVE: Blue Light Blocking Glasses: Amazon's version is SUPER SIMILAR and under $20 for a TWO pack. Say what?! SUCH a good deal!

SPLURGE: Travel Shave Kit: Loving this masculine looking bag with the nicest leather finish. The perfect space to put all the things the man in your life needs!

SAVE: Herschel Chapter Dopp Kit: OR go with this $35 alternative! This bag is a great basic to have, Neil loves his (and so do I)!!

#10: Wifi Range Extender

SPLURGE: Eero Wifi System: The extender that finally provides wifi for the entire house (including those hard to reach spaces)! Skip the pain of multiple wifi systems and surprise your man with this amazing stocking stuffer!
