Top 10 Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Women


Many, if not, most women will love receiving a book for Christmas! Of course, the options are endless, so I’m sharing my personal favorite book of 2023, Tom Lake by Ann Patchett, a #1 New York Times bestseller and Reese Witherspoon Book Club pick.


Ornaments make for another no-fail gift, and there’s no better time to gift them than Christmas. Again, there is no shortage of options, but I have this specific book ornament, and I absolutely adore it.

A mug is a fairly common gift, so let’s spice things up a bit. This RTIC travel mug is my favorite travel mug because it’s tall and skinny enough to fit comfortably in my car’s cup holder, and the handle makes it easy to grab at the same time.

Cozy Socks

As Harry Potter’s Dumbledore once said, “One can never have enough socks.” The same can be said about Barefoot Dreams socks. They are worth the price and live up to the hype. I have at least five pairs at this point, and they are the most cozy and high quality of all the cozy socks I’ve tried.


When it comes to bookmarks, I absolutely love my bookmark light. It’s rechargeable, adjustable, and has several settings. It’s perfect for reading by the fireplace or in bed. (In fact, it’s so good that my husband stole mine and I had to buy another.)

Lip Mask

The insanely popular Laneige lip mask has been on my nightstand for years, and each and every holiday season, readers scoop it up like crazy! It’s beloved for good reason — it works really well, and just about every woman gets chapped lips in Wintertime.


Notecards are one of those things everyone needs, yet you never seem to have nice ones when you need them most. Some of the prettiest and most popular are Rifle Paper Co.’s notecards.

Custom Embosser

Whether or not she’s a “tea drinker,” she will probably still love the popular Harney & Sons hot cinnamon spice tea with cinnamon, orange, and cloves. (I saw this as someone who is kind of picky about tea and loves it.) The flavor profile is perfect for the holiday season. I linked the decaf, which is the one I drink, but it also comes in a caffeinated version.

Gel Pens

These are my favorite gel pens for underlining, taking notes, writing out cards, just being a little “extra” on any given day, you name it!

Post-It Set

I know I’m not the only woman who gets excited about Post-Its. This Post-It set is cute and functional! With a weekly planner and habit tracker, it’s also perfect for the New Year.

More Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Women

Below are more of my absolute favorite things, including captions about what makes each one so great for the woman in your life.

I made an effort to make these things popular, practical, useful and/or consumable items she will actually use and love, and to keep nearly everything as small and cheap as possible (nearly everything is inexpensive under $25, and most significantly cheaper than that).

And, as mentioned earlier, many of these recommendations link to Amazon to make your shopping as quick and easy as possible.

  1. An ornament is such a good stocking stuffer! I’m desperately trying to find some last minute gifts for my mom, but my budget is pretty slim because we just had our floors resurfaced. But I think I can still pack a punch with some of these, thanks for the inspo!
