Best stocking stuffers for women

Design by Tiana Crispino

While it may always be the big-ticket items that steal the show, we strongly believe that stocking stuffers deserve their place at the holiday gifting table, too. Who doesn’t love a few fun extra add-ons that they probably wouldn’t otherwise buy for themselves? When it comes time to find the perfect stocking stuffer (or stuffers) for all of the women on your shopping list, there are so many different ways you can go. Beauty goodies—the perfect lip gloss, a sophisticated polish—are always ideal. Maybe consider a smaller piece of personalized jewelry or set of stationery, which are always appreciated. In short, there are plenty of stocking stuffers for women to choose from (many of which are great for everyone). That’s why we sorted through the goods to find the cream of the crop.

The Byrdie team has been hard at work finding the best Christmas gifts for everyone on your list, so find the best stocking stuffers for women below.

Chillhouse Chill Tips

chillhouse chill tips heart strings

Chillhouse

Nail art aficionados will love how these press-ons, the quickest, easiest way to score a ‘Gram-worthy mani that we’ve ever seen. The kit comes with everything you need to pop them on in three easy steps; the salon-worthy tips stayed on perfectly for several days, in our experience, and they can also be reused. With nearly 30 designs to choose from, there’s something for everyone.

What Our Testers Say

“Chillhouse hit it out of the park with these press-ons. As soon as I finished applying the nails, I was thrilled with how my hands looked. The nail art was elevated and artistic—similar to the designs I was bookmarking from all over Instagram.” —Khera Alexander, Product Tester

Tower 28 ShineOn Lip Jelly Gloss

Tower 28 ShineOn Lip Jelly Gloss

Sephora

There’s nothing, and we mean nothing, that we don’t like about this lippie. You could call it a gloss, based on how much of a gorgeous, long-lasting sheen it delivers. It’s not in the least bit sticky and feels completely comfortable and lightweight on lips, more akin to a balm. To that point, it also imparts plenty of moisture, as well as the perfect amount of sheer color.

Price at time of publish: $15

What Our Testers Say

“My lips were left shining with a hint of color. It lasted for hours and withstood the high and low temperatures I was experiencing in my area. For hours, my lips felt moisturized, which is just what a person with dry lips like me needs. After a few weeks of using this lip gloss, I observed that my lips were softer, which was a fantastic bonus.” —Kara Ayala, Product Tester

Grande Cosmetics GrandeLASH MD Lash Enhancing Serum

Grande Cosmetics GrandeLASH-MD Lash Enhancing Serum

Grande Cosmetics

With this tiny bottle, you can give anyone the gift of longer lashes. The amino acid-infused serum does take some time to work, but with consistent use, we were amazed at how much longer, thicker, and fuller it made our lashes.

Price at time of publish: $68

What Our Testers Say

“If you want your lashes to grow long (be prepared—they will be longer than you expect), thick, and full, the Grande Cosmetics GrandeLASH-MD Lash Enhancing Serum is an absolute must-have to incorporate into your daily skincare routine. My eyelashes grew so long while using this serum that people ask me often if they are real. Use it consistently, and you’ll see longer eyelashes in no time.” —Ashley Rebecca, Product Tester

Briogeo Don't Depair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask

For tresses that are in need of a little extra TLC, there’s no better option than this reparative treatment. Packed with natural ingredients (it’s Byrdie clean, by the way) such as natural oils, wheat protein, and algae extract, it leaves hair softer, shinier, and smoother. It comes in several sizes, but this mini guy is perfect for stocking stuffing.

Price at time of publish: $39

What Our Testers Say

In a word, this stuff is gold. Right from the first application, my hair felt super-soft, resilient, and shiny—but not like it was limp or coated in product. I definitely noticed the treatment had smoothed some of my frizz, and my fried ends from months of neglect and tight buns were much sleeker, probably in part due to the argan oil.” —Emily Algar, Product Tester

Cosabella Never Say Never Cutie Thong 5 Pack

Cosabella Never Say Never Cutie Thong 5 Pack

Cosabella

There’s a good reason why these thongs have somewhat of a cult-like following. Super-soft and stretchy, they lay flat and never dig into skin, while still offering a sexy lace design. Give this five-pack as a set, or split it up for five individual stocking stuffers.

(Re)setting 100% Mineral Powder Sunscreen SPF 35 PA+++

Amazon

In case you missed the memo, you’re technically supposed to reapply sunscreen every two hours. It’s an admittedly lofty goal, which is where sunscreen powders come up huge. This one in particular is one of our faves, an SPF/setting powder hybrid that imparts oh-so important sun protection while also helping to set your makeup. The convenient twist-up tube comes with a built-in brush and is the perfect size to pop in a stocking.

Price at time of publish: $30

Stocking stuffers also double as great options when you need a generic gift for a group situation. Think the office’s secret Santa exchange.

British M Flex Gentle Brush

British M Flex Gentle Brush

Amazon

This unique wet brush touts a patented, bendable design that works to quickly and gently detangle all hair types and textures. It’s also ventilated, allowing for more airflow as you blow dry to help speed up dry time, which is always a win in our book.

Price at time of brush: $21

Ideal for anyone who loves their vino—but not the accompanying headaches and skin blotchiness that can often come with it—this truly is a magic little wand. Simply dip it in your glass of wine for three minutes; the filtration system helps pull out all kinds of additives, including histamines and sulfites, that are often responsible for wine sensitives. And, no, it doesn’t change the taste of the wine at all.

Even if you aren’t actually going to put it in a stocking, a stocking stuffer typically should be on the smaller side.

Equilibria Rapid Calming Melts

Equilibria Rapid Calming Melts

Equilibria

CBD brands are everywhere these days, but this female-owned company that uses single-sourced, hand-harvested hemp remains one of our favorites. We’re big fans of all of their products, topical and oral, though these fast-acting tablets take the cake. Pop one under your tongue, and it really will help you chill out and relax in minutes—who couldn’t use that?

Diamond’s may be a girl’s best friend, but this brush, which is the perfect way to keep said diamonds clean and insanely sparkly, is a close second. Almost like an electric toothbrush for your bling, it gently vibrates to thoroughly clean away all kinds of residue. (The bristles are all specially shaped to get into even the tiniest of crevices around all kinds of stones.) The included cleanser removes shine-dulling deposits, and there’s even a built-in safety ring, so you never have to worry about—horrors!—dropping your jewelry down the drain.

Moodeaux Worthy Supercharged SkinScent

This citrusy-floral-woodsy fragrance is great in and of itself, but what’s especially unique is that it interacts with your own pheromones, resulting in a final scent that’s a little bit different on everyone. The oil-based formula adds moisture to skin as well, and the travel-friendly, pen-size couldn’t be better for a stocking.
