1. Lip Balms, Glosses & Oils
Everyone loves soft, healthy lips, so why not add a lip balm, gloss or lip oil to her stocking? For lip glosses, I recommend the Fenty Beauty gloss in “Fenty Glow.” It looks and feels amazing on the lips and this shade is universal, meaning it will work on every skin type.
For lip balms, Burt’s Bees beeswax lip balms are the way to go, while the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask is will give her soft lips day or night. For lip oils, the e.l.f. Cosmetics lip oils are amazingly glossy, non-sticky and super affordable.
2. Device Charging Cables
Everyone has been in need of a charge cable at one time or another. Give her a set of cables to keep in her purse, at the office or in the car for a quick charge on the go.

3. Sheet Masks & Under Eye Patches
Sheet masks and under eye patches are a great way to hydrate dry skin and allow enjoy 15-20 minutes of TLC that will leave her looking radiant. The PIXI Detoxif-eye patches are amazing for depuffing, hydrating and brightening the under eye area and I personally love Medi-Heal Sheet masks for their quality ingredients and overall fit/ingredient formula.
4. Hand Sanitizer
Keep her hands germ free while she’s on the go with scented or unscented hand sanitizers that will fit in her purse.
5. Press On Nails Or Nail Polish
For the ever-manicured woman, grab a couple of complexion-complementing Essie nail polishes or some press-on nails to keep her nails looking fabulous. I have a colleague that swears by Kiss Press-On nails and I can vouch they look great and totally natural.
6. Pain Relief Patches
I tried these Salon-Pas pain relief patches and they are a dream for sore, achy muscles by providing targeted pain relief where you need it for up to 8 hours. Add a box of these to her stocking and she’ll be thanking you later.
7. Safety Alarm
Any woman who has walked alone at night will value this Birdie safety alarm. When activated, it sounds a loud siren and strobing light to get people’s attention. Even better, 5% of She’s Birdie profits are donated to partner organizations that passionately support women’s safety, shelter and health.
8. Slipper Socks
These slipper socks not only fit into a stocking but will fit into her purse so she can bring them anywhere she needs some impromptu comfy slippers. They have non-slip soles to keep you safely on your feet too.
9. Hand & Cuticle Cream
For the constant skin picker or dry-handed friend, add some tubes of hand cream to her stocking to keep her digits moisturized. My favourite hand creams are from The Body Shop – not only are they protective and nourishing, their fragrances are amazing and the tubes easily fit into a handbag.
10. Skin Care Serums
There are a number of fabulous high and low end skin care serums that come in the cutest bottles or tubes – perfect for adding into a skin care lovers stocking this year! I tried this fabulous Power of Four Skin Care Serum set from CurrentBody Skin that you can open and add into one or more stockings.
Some other fabulous serums to consider are Neutrogena’s Rapid Wrinkle Repair Serum (anti-aging benefits), L’Oreal’s Revitalift (for hydration), Paula’s Choice C15 Super Booster (for brightening and reversing sun damage – reviewed here) or The Ordinary’s Niacinamide + Zinc Serum (pore minimizing and oil control – reviewed here).
11. Tide Stain Removers
Anyone who is a bit of a messy eater like myself will absolutely love these Tide To Go Instant Stain Removers. They’re a must have in your handbag and they work on the spot (literally!).
12. Hair Clips & Cords
For the lady who always has her hair pulled back, some stylish hair accessories like claw clips, scrunchies or hair cords are the perfect gift and will prevent her locks from getting damaged.
13. Hair & Body Mist
Body mists or hair fragrances come in a ton of different scents and are a perfect stocking stuffer for the girl who wants to smell like vanilla or roses wherever she goes.
14. Wool Scarf
Keep her warm and looking stylish with a wool scarf to complement her winter coat. If you’re looking for a high end option, a classic Burberry plaid scarf is always a winner, while this pink and gray wool scarf is a stylish lower end option.
15. Essential Oils & Pocket Diffuser
Essential oils can have great health benefits and calming effects. Grab her an essential oil set and a pocket diffuser to keep her relaxed wherever she may be.
16. Cuticle Oil
For that girl who’s always struggling to keep her cuticles soft and smooth (like me) add a nourishing and strengthening cuticle oil to her stocking like this organic option from Pura d’Or.
17. Compression Socks
If the girl in your life spends a lot of time on her feet, some compression socks are in order to boost circulation and reduce pain from standing all day long.
18. Beautiful Coasters
For the décor lover in your life, some gorgeous marble, resin, agate or wood coasters are the best mini-gift for this decorator’s stocking. You can find some personalized coaster options on Etsy if you’re looking to add a more customized touch (click a picture below to shop that item).
19. Exfoliating Foot Mask
Most of us tend to overlook our feet, leaving them dry and cracked. I tried an exfoliating foot mask a while back (reviewed here) and it gave me baby soft feet after one treatment! Add a couple foot peel masks to her stocking (as long as she’s not pregnant or suffering from diabetes) and be prepared for some happy feet.
20. Compact Mirror

For younger, plumper lips, this CurrentBody Skin LED Lip Perfector will make someone’s Christmas Day extra special. It uses red light therapy to stimulate collagen production for smoother, fuller lips.
22. Samsung Galaxy Smart Tag Tag
For the girl who loses everything, the Samsung Galaxy Smart Tag will track her luggage, her dog, her keys or her bag location using GPS. If you’re not on Android, the GEGO GPS Tracker operates on iOS as well as Android.
23. Loose Leaf Tea
Tea lovers can never have too much tea! Treat her to some new loose leaf tea flavours and include some loose leaf infusers in case she’s new to loose tea.

To keep those dry patches at bay, consider adding some dry body oil into your friend’s stocking this year. It will protect and nourish skin while adding a non-greasy glow.
