Let’s be honest: For those who celebrate Christmas, stocking stuffers are usually a last-minute get because you totally forgot about them. Which is funny, considering in some lores of Saint Nicholas and Father Christmas, the stocking (hung by the chimney with care) served as the original (and only) receptacle for gifts from ol’ Santy Claus.

But now with so many normal-sized gifts on your list, those smaller, stocking-sized goodies are often found on December 23rd at CVS. This predicament is especially unideal when you’re stuffing the stocking of a woman you love dearly and that last-minute stick of deodorant doesn’t exactly scream romance (however, completely necessary so still pick that up.)

It’s why I, a woman, have handpicked some totally non-boring items that make for super thoughtful stocking stuffers or, just in general, great gifts she’ll love.


Noelle Huggie Hoop Earring Set

These dainty, ornament-inspired earrings are perfect for festive season but are also cute, classic pieces she can wear all-year round.


Glossier Balm Dotcom

Glossier’s Balm Dotcom is a cult-favorite solution to dry, chapped lips, and it’s not hard to glean why. It looks good, is packed with antioxidants and natural moisturizers and comes in nine fun flavors. Next to my phone, keys, wallet and face mask, I never leave home without it.


If she hates doing laundry, BootayBag is a godsend. The subscription service will deliver comfortable, stylish under garments to her door every month. All you have to do is choose to gift a 3-month, 6-month or year subscription of 1-2 pairs of underwear a month and pick a style she’d like (but no worries, she can easily change her style preferences later if you’re not sure.)


Quip Smart Electric Toothbrush

A new toothbrush is a classic and useful but also inherently boring stocking stuffer. So give it a smart upgrade with Quip. Via Bluetooth technology, the electric toothbrush will monitor her brushing habits and even let her earn points when she cleans those pearly whites properly through the Quip app. Plus it’s super sleek, lightweight and sticks to her bathroom mirror for convenient storage.


Diptyque Set of Five Scented Candles

Give a girl a Diptyque candle and she’ll love you forever. This set includes five of the Parisian perfumer’s delightfully intoxicating scents.


Smile Makers The Surfer Vibrator

This little guy is made with soft silicone and features a rounded head with tiny fins to deliver toe-curling pulsations. It’s compact, no-noise design makes it a perfectly discreet, travel-friendly vibe.

Violet Grey

Chanel Le Rouge Duo Ultra Tenue Ultra Wear Lip Color

With Chanel’s chic, timeless packaging and an actual high-quality formula, this long-lasting, ultra-saturated liquid lipstick delivers gloss, hydration and fabulous looks — on her face and in her makeup bag.

Violet Grey

Necessaire The Body Lotion

Annoying dry skin szn is upon us and it’s why you should gift her lots of lotion this year. Starting with Necessaire’s “The Body Lotion,” a luxe, daily multi-vitamin moisturizer that smoothes, softens and restores skin over time.


MILK MAKEUP Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Hydrating Face Mask

This cannabis-based face mask helps to moisturize and cleanse skin while having one of the most convenient, mess-free applicators I’ve seen.


Sakara Life The Super Bar Collection

The best-selling Super Bar Collection from wellness company Sakara Life includes one box of each of the brand’s clean plant protein bars that are designed to improve skin, boost energy and help with digestion.

Outdoor Voices

Outdoor Voices Gift Card

Gift cards are great for alleviating some gifting pressures, and this physical gift card from cult-favorite activewear brand Outdoor Voices lets her pick her favorite endorphin-boosting gear.

Everyday Humans

Everyday Humans Germaphobe Hand & Surface Spray

When I leave the house I take my phone, keys, wallet, face mask, Glossier Balm Dotcom and this Everyday Humans sanitizing spray. It’s hella convenient and smells wonderful.

Sagely Naturals

Sagely Naturals CBD Relief & Recovery Roll-On

Thanks to the calming properties of lavender and chamomile blended with the fresh, uplifting essential oil Bergamot, she can easily apply this plant-based CBD roll-on to pressure points for quick headache and stress relief. 


Home Refresh Kit

With scents of “fortifying Basil, grassy Citronella, spicy Ginger, and invigorating Spearmint,” this essential oil kit from Vitruvi will keep her home smelling refreshed and rejuvenated just in time for the new year. That is of course if she owns a diffuser. If she doesn’t, add one to your gift list.

Usual Wines Mixed Pack

Keep her stocking stocked with some crisp rosé, dry brut and fruity red wine from Usual Wines, which hosts its delicious, all-natural wines in uniquely designed, single-serving bottles. Perfect for instant celebrating.
