Don’t sleep on stocking stuffers — digging into a velvet stocking full of goodies is half of the holiday fun. Whether it’s your tradition to go through stockings before or after the rest of what Santa brought, stockings are the perfect way to gift small-but-mighty presents (and they don’t have to be wrapped). So hang your stockings by the chimney with care and fill them up with these mini beauty and wellness gifts perfect for the holiday season and beyond.
Beauty Travel Kit
It’s the perfect way to fill a single skincare-obsessive’s stocking, or you can open up the set and divide the minis if you have a few stockings to fill. Either way, this will definitely be their favorite stocking they’ve ever opened.
If you know someone who loves skincare, they’ve definitely seen these little face massagers on TikTok and have been wanting to take them for a spin. You stash these in the refrigerator for a few minutes, and afterward, you have the perfect tools to de-puff the eye area for brighter, more-awake-looking skin. Pro tip: pair with your favorite Sunday Riley serum for a little extra slip.
These individually-packaged hand warmers are perfect for on-the-go, and self-activate once they’re opened. They’re the perfect filler to take up empty stocking space, and they’re actually practical, too. Once opened, they’ll bring your loved one 4-6 hours of warmth.
These aren’t your mother’s scrunchies — the ‘80s hair accessory has gotten a major makeover in the last few years, with this iteration from Slip Silk being one of the most popular styles. These are made of 100 percent pure mulberry silk and feature a sleek design perfect for casual and formal holiday styles. They’re easy on hair and even easier on the eyes.
Welcome to your skin’s Circle of Trust. This moisturizer trio contains a quality, hydrating formulation for whatever skin concern you mind discovering this winter: C.E.O. for brightening, Tidal for lightweight hydration, and ICE for deep moisturization and barrier repair.
Bobby Pin Set
Elevate basic ponytails and perfectly undone top knots with these gorgeous diamond-inspired chain hair accessories from hairstylist Justine Marjan’s collection with Kitsch. These are festive, comfortable, and actually stay put, even when styled on fine hair types. Simply put, you can’t go wrong with sparkle.
Gel Manicure Set
For the person in your life who can’t go a month without getting their nails done, stuff their stocking with this mini gel manicure set. The UV lamp is about the size of a French macaron (hence the brand name) and cures gel nail polish one nail at a time. It’s the perfect pocket-sized tool for your manicure arsenal.
Fuzzy socks are always a good idea. And while we love holiday prints, we recommend going for something a little more neutral so your loved one can enjoy their cozy socks well into the new year. Get the whole family a matching pair to pull from their stockings.
Sustainability is always in style, and this holiday season is no exception to the rule. Everyone could always use a few extra reusable straws to store at their desk, in their purse, and at home to make sure single-use plastic is just a ghost of Christmases past.
Know someone who obsesses over their horoscope and knows their rising sign? They’ll flip when they find a deck of tarot cards in their stocking come Christmas morning. Just be prepared to delay the morning’s proceedings so they can give everyone in the family a reading.
When you love someone, you make sure they protect themselves and others by wearing a mask in public. There’s no shame in adding some personal style — in fact, it makes it all the more enjoyable. A.L.C.’s masks feature a comfortable cotton texture and endless patterns, so it’s easy to express yourself safely.
Electronic Foot File
There’s no feeling quite like a fresh pedicure. Give the gift of the salon feeling at home with Amope’s electriconic pedi file, which softens heels and files away stubborn calluses. Make it a pedicure-themed stocking by also including polish, a nail file, and some luxurious, softening foot cream.
