With three light settings, this selfie light ring from QIAYA can brighten up selfies taken at night or in a dark room. The light is rechargeable, clips to the top of a phone and is small enough to carry in a backpack, purse or pocket.

10. Kids Hum electric toothbrush
If you’re going to put a toothbrush in your kids’ stocking, at least make it a fun one. The Colgate Hum Kids Powered toothbrush comes in a cute design and two colors, but best of all, the smart battery toothbrush features a two-minute timer that powers off automatically.
11. For the on-trend tween
Described as a “magnetic skate park for your thumbs.” Kids can flip, flick, stack and finger-kick two dime-size magnetic “pucks” in their key-chain holder to perform stunts and finger tricks. All the while the two pucks make loads of ASMR-satisfying clicks and swooshing sounds. This toy is exciting, fun and soothing all at the same time.
You gotta try the PopSockets PopPuck to really understand it but—trust us—this is a slam-dunk gift for the hard-to-buy-for tween.
12. Mkeke phone case
Smartphones are awesome, but fragile. Help them keep their precious phone safe with one of Mkeke’s cases. They are slim but mighty with ultimate durability and a non-slip grip.
13. For the one who’s always asking for a charger
14. For the one who drops their phone: Popsocket
Popsockets are the perfect phone accessory that can be popped in or out to create a convenient handle or stand. This makes chatting, FaceTiming, taking photos, watching TikTok videos and anything else you might need your phone for much easier.
15. For the one who can never find their keys: Tile Mate
If they’re always late because they can’t find their keys, get them the Tile Mate. The Tile Mate is great because they can be used with commonly forgotten items like keys, wallets and purses. The next time they lose something, they can just use the app to ping the Tile and quickly find it.
15. For the one who goes on long drives: Anker Dual USB Car Charger
If your giftee loves road trips (and uses their phone’s navigation to do so), then they need a car charger. Anker’s car charger can charge two devices at the same time and comes with gold-plated circuitry to reduce heat. It’s compatible with iOS phones and tablets, as well as certain Android device models.
17. For the jetsetter: A Manual Luggage Scale
Any chronic over-packer would appreciate a luggage scale, and the Dr. Meter Manual Luggage Scale is the best ones we’ve tested. This analog scale is extremely accurate when it comes to weighing luggage and is compact and lightweight enough to take anywhere, and save you on hefty overage fees! What’s more, is it’s available in a range of colors, which makes it both cute and practical.
18. Function of Beauty
Give the gift of great hair with a Function of Beauty gift card tucked into their stocking. They’ll be able to order customized products based on a detailed hair quiz, to help them achieve healthier, more voluminous hair.
19. For the one who’s always applying lip balm: Burt’s Bees Merry Melon Gift Set
As the temps continue to drop, it’s important that we keep our hands and lips moisturized. If they love hand moisturizers or tend to struggle with dry, chapped lips, Burt’s Bees Merry Melon Holiday Gift Set just might be the perfect stocking stuffer for them. This set includes the Watermelon Moisturizing Lip Balm, Squeezy Tinted Lip Balm and Watermelon and Mint Hand Cream to saturate their hands and lips throughout the dry, winter season.
20. For the haircare lover: Ethique Live and Let Shine Gift Pack
If they’re always checking their hair out in the mirror or experimenting with various haircare products, then they’ll probably want a new shampoo and conditioner. The Ethique Live and Let Shine Gift Pack is perfect for those with balanced hair—not too dry and not too oily. It includes a shampoo bar, which is one of our favorites, and The Guardian Conditioner. Both have sweet scents and are gre for frizz and dryness, making them essential for the cold, winter months.
21. For the one who loves to nap: Nidra Deep Rest Eye Mask
If they value beauty sleep, they could use a sleep mask to block out light. After testing it, our editor said the Nidra Deep Rest Eye Mask is “like having personal blackout curtains for your eyes,” which is why we named it the best contoured sleep mask we’ve ever tested. Because it’s contoured, no light will sneak in, meaning they’ll have sweet dreams no matter the time of day.
22. For the one with dry lips: Laneige Sweet Dream Snooze Set
We love Laneige here at Reviewed. Their Lip Sleeping Mask is the perfect treatment to wake up each morning with deliciously soft and hydrated lips. Combine it with their hyaluronic cream and their overnight water mask and this makes a moisturizing trio that’s the stuff of dreams.
23. For the lipstick lover: Nars Lip Duo
If you’re a fan of the White Lotus you are probably dreaming of La Dolce Vita. If you can’t jet off to Taormina at least you can treat your lips to some luxury. We love the creamy, opaque formula of Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil and the limited-edition Mini Afterglow Lip Shine gives a bit of glow for a perfect finish.
24. For the one who needs to relax: Saje essential oils
If your giftee already owns or is getting an essential oil diffuser, it might be nice to toss some essential oils in their stocking. The Best of Saje Diffuser Blend Collection includes Deep Breath, Goddess, Elevate, Liquid Sunshine, Present Moment and Tranquility, which pretty much gives them a scent for every mood.
25. For the one who needs a spa day: Face and foot masks
For anyone who takes self-care seriously, sheet masks and foot masks are essential. (They’re also easy to slip into a stocking.) Que Bella sheet masks for the face and Holler and Glow Purrfect Pedi Foot Masks, are popular and highly rated choices, and both are available at Target for under $5.
26. For the one with a serious skincare routine: TruSkin Vitamin C Serum
For a balanced skincare routine, fans of TruSkin Vitamin C swear by this serum. The formula, which claims to help brighten skin and reduce the look of wrinkles and dark spots, blends vitamin C, vitamin E, botanical hyaluronic acid and witch hazel for a clean formula with no added colors or fragrances.
27. Manscaped Weed Whacker trimmer
Don’t let the name scare you. Gift them the Manscaped Weed Whacker to safely trim the sensitive areas around the nose and ears and maintain a groomed style. Their nose hairs will thank you.
28. For the one with sensitive skin: Elta MD
For the one with sensitive skin, Elta MD makes an unscented, simple and lightweight Skin Recovery Night Face Mask that’s enriched with antioxidants. It feels cool and soothing when applied, and is dispensed by pressing down the top of the jar, so you don’t have to stick your fingers into the whole container.

Give the gift of home-cooked meals without the hassle. A Hello Fresh gift card is a thoughtful gift for someone who doesn’t like to cook or doesn’t have a lot of time. They’ll appreciate the convenience not to mention Hello Fresh is one of our favorite meal kit delivery services for how they offer generous portions and straightforward recipes.
33. For the one with cold feet: Barefoot Dreams CozyChic socks
Socks make a classic and practical stocking stuffer, but we’re not talking about boring white ankle socks here, these Barefoot Dreams CozyChick socks are a soft, warm and fuzzy winter wardrobe essential.
34. For the one who loves jewelry: Fairy Name necklace
Jewelry is the perfect size for a stocking stuffer. Surprise them with something thoughtful and made just for them with this Fairy Name necklace. Choose from 18K gold, rose gold or silver plated finishes for a stylish yet understated piece of custom jewelry.
35. Uncommon Goods Magnetic Bookmark
Your favorite bookworm will love and get a good laugh out of these handy magnetic bookmarks. One design says “A book a day keeps reality away,” while another says “fell asleep here.” Made of faux leather, they are both durable and useful for those who love to read.
36. For the tea drinker: Manatea Silicone Tea Infuser
If your giftee likes to end their day cozied up with a cup of tea, then they need a good tea infuser. The Manatea is the best tea infuser we’ve ever tested, and it’s pretty cute, too. It fits tight on mugs and doesn’t let any leaves slip out, which they’ll enjoy while sipping their favorite loose-leaf tea.
37. For the earth lover: Baggu reusable bags
This set of three Baggu bags are reusable, eco-friendly and long-lasting. They are made from a strong yet lightweight nylon fabric and come in many different styles and vibrant patterns, making them the perfect tote for groceries or other belongings. They are machine washable and fold up easily into a stocking.
38. For the adventurous one: LifeStraw
Campers, hikers and outdoor adventurers are obsessed with the LifeStraw. This straw contains a filter that can remove waterborne bacteria and protozoan parasites for up to 1,000 gallons—so you can drink from a stream with it if necessary.
39. For the one obsessed with coffee: Stojo Coffee Cup
Travel mugs are a great way to keep drinks warm while on the go, but if your giftee hates lugging them around, they might appreciate the Stojo, a collapsable coffee cup. It folds up to easily fit in a bag while still maintaining some insulation for your drink when expanded. We tested it and loved how easy it was to use and how many color options there were.
40. For the one who wears the same jewelry: Diamond Dazzle Stik
If they wear the same earrings, necklaces and rings every day, then their jewelry could probably use a little refresher. With more than 46,000 reviews and a 4.6-star rating on Amazon, people swear by this Diamond Dazzle Stik to bring out the bling.
41. For the one who loves wine: Secura electric wine bottle opener
The Secura electric wine bottle opener is a great stocking stuffer for wine lovers.

The wine lover in your life will be thrilled to spend less time struggling with a corkscrew and more time sipping!
42. For the cocktail connoisseur: Beverage chilling stones
No one wants a warm or watered-down cocktail, and that’s where beverage chilling stones come in handy. Made of natural soapstone, they keep drinks icy cold without watering them down, which any cocktail connoisseur will appreciate.
43. For the eco-conscious one: FinalStraw
The FinalStraw may actually be the last straw they ever need. It conveniently folds up into a container that attaches to a keyring for ultimate portability, making it the best reusable straw we tested, and anyone who’s passionate about the environment will appreciate it.

Pinterest-loving people will love a few individually sized cast iron skillets.
