Stocking stuffers are some of my FAVORITE gifts on Christmas morning — there's just something about that sweet tradition; no matter how old I get, I will forever love peeking into my stocking and seeing allll the fun goodies Santa (ahem… Neil) hid in there! 😉 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.
It can definitely be a challenge to find quality stocking stuffers, but we've done ALL the research for you so no need to worry! 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. Whether you are splurging or saving this year, these stocking stuffers are WINNERS.
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 is 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: Lip Mask
SPLURGE: Lip Sleeping Mask: This little luxury is something any woman of any age would LOVE. I don't care if she's super extra or super basic. This one's a guaranteed win.
SAVE: Burt’s Bees Lip Care: UNDER $10, this overnight intensive lip treatment has an overall rating of 4.5 stars so that pretty much means it BELONGS in a stocking.
#4: Gua Sha Tool
SPLURGE: Gua Sha Sculpting Tool: Said to be a skincare GAME CHANGER. Massaging this tool over your face helps beauty products to absorb more effectively AND it tones the skin at the same time. Secretly hoping Santa slips this into my stocking this year!
SAVE: Rose Quartz Gua Sha Tool: Removes toxins, prevents wrinkles, boosts radiance in your complexion – at $9.99 and with over a THOUSAND five-star reviews, you seriously can't go wrong with this one!
SPLURGE: Block Letter Monogram Necklace: These block letter necklaces are ALL the rage right now, and I love that this stocking stuffer adds a subtle yet thoughtful personalized touch!
SAVE: Sideways Large Initial Necklace: Amazon does it again with a STRIKING resemblance of the splurge option – for only $8.89! And to make it even better…freeee shipping with Priiiime!!!
#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 in my last Sephora order 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: Kristin Ess Style Reviving Dry Shampoo: Kristin Ess products are the next big thing and I love that you can pick this up during your next Target run. Vitamin-enriched, odor-eliminating…this dry shampoo is LEGIT, and so pretty, too!
#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: TIJN Blue Light Blocking Glasses: Choose from SO many different styles on Amazon! I love that you can personalize this to the person you are gifting, AND it is an item that person will use every. single. day. Such a quality stocking stuffer!

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!
SPLURGE: Indigo Eau de Parfum Rollerball: The perfect size of perfume to take ANYWHERE, I absolutely love this warm and spicy scent that my girlfriends gifted me for my bday this year. I will NEVER be sad about getting perfume in my stocking – ever, ever!
SAVE: Tuscan Blood Orange Perfume: A comparable scent from Target, but less than $12! Still that perfect size, which also makes it a perfect stocking stuffer. And with 266 almost ALL perfect reviews, you know it doesn't stink!
#10: Hair Growth Vitamins
SPLURGE: Let It Grow – Hair Sweet Hair Vegan Gummies Duo Set: First of all, how cute is this holiday set?! Second, these vitamins WORK. Third, they taste DELICIOUS. And 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

#2: Card Case
SPLURGE: Leather Card Case: NO ONE wants a fat, uncomfortable wallet in their back pocket all day. Saffiano's card case is slim and fits in any pocket.
SAVE: Herschel Men's Card Case: If you are looking for a non-leather option, Herschel's version is just as slim and SO modern + sleek!
SPLURGE: Etip Gloves: These gloves are so useful it's a little bananas. Because there's nothing worse than your man having to choose between freezing fingers while texting you back, or keeping his hands from frostbite. HA, help him make the choice easier with these gloves! 😉

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.)
