Sometimes the best gifts come in the smallest packages. Or in our case, a stocking. You don't have to wrap anything (#TimeSaver) and they're usually those presents you know someone wants or needs, but they won't spend money on purchasing for themselves.
Keep in mind that you don't have to fill stockings with gifts that will make them cry (although if you want to go that route, we've included some ideas!). Instead, think of items that are functional and will make everyday life just a little easier. Or something that allows your loved one to spoil themselves a bit during this season.
We've curated the best stocking stuffers parents will obsess over:
For the person who always seems to lose their keys or phone, Tile will guide you to its exact location as long as you're within 200 feet. Goodbye, mom brain.
Spruce up your desk or counter space with this gorgeous brass easel and calendar. You can upload photos straight from your phone or social accounts without diminishing the quality of the images.
You know those products you never knew you needed until you tried it? Yeah, this one is it. It hydrates and brightens the under eye and has a cooling sensation that really wakes you up and reduces puffiness. The formula allows it to be used over or under makeup, too.
For that person who has *everything*, this kit is a fun product to have on hand. After all, you never know when you need a safety pin or penknife until... well, you need it.
How many times are you out and your phone or headphones die? Probably too many to count. This external battery is as thick as three credit cards (making it easy to keep in a wallet or purse) but packs a punch for charging lightning-compatible devices.
Perfect for adults and kids alike, this silicone straw set easily clips onto any bag so you never have an excuse to use plastic. They work great with both cold and hot beverages and are super easy to clean.
If you're ready to cut the cable cords, YouTube TV offers live streaming for more than 70 channels, including sporting events and on-demand shows and movies. We love that its DVR has unlimited storage and that you can add up to five people on your subscription.
This is a splurge, but a sentimental gift any mama would love. It's minimal, beautiful and the quality is incredible. You have 25 characters available to customize this. Hint: Put 'mama' or a child's name or initials with a heart.
For those nights when you just need a little extra beauty sleep, a silk mask will make going to bed feel even more luxurious. After all, mama needs nap time, too.
For those gym sessions or just a little quiet time, these wireless headphones are ideal for anyone on your list. Plus, they're sweat and weather resistant and have up to 6 hours battery time (for those moments you inevitably forget to charge them).
If you can never seem to enjoy a warm cup of coffee, say hello to your new best friend. Using the app, customize your brew's temperature so it's still warm hours later.
While we can't stuff your stocking with extra zzz's, we can give you the next best thing. These gold eye masks are divine for tired under-eyes, full of hyaluronic acid and amino acids that de-puff and awaken that delicate area. Pro tip: Keep them in the fridge for a cooling sensation.
If you can't swing a fancy new TV, this will turn your existing one into a smart device. We're obsessed with having our favorite streaming platforms at the click of a button and the picture quality is incredible. Pro tip: Take this along on vacations so your littles always have their favorite shows at the ready.
If you have time for anything in the morning, it should be to put sunscreen on—but you have to be careful since that skin is so delicate. Its texture makes it feel like it's barely there, it's SPF 35 and the lotion has a built-in shine control in it. Our managing editor has been using this for a year and it's still a staple in her routine.
Is there anything better than pampering yourself? Yes—going to an appointment without having to pay for it yourself. The best part is the recipient can choose from a variety of places from spas for massages to salons for hair or nail. Prices vary.
For a practical gift, grab this set of eight and toss one of these in everyone's stocking to get through cold and flu season. With a natural formula, they'll kill germs without the alcohol, making them safe (and sting-free) for kiddos, too. Plus, we love that they don't dry out hands in the winter months.
Perfect for bringing your morning smoothie to go or when you want a water bottle without the plastic. This earth-friendly bamboo mug is insulated and comes with a built-in infuser for brewing tea or making flavored water from your favorite fruit. It comes in five colors but we love how simply classic this black + white combo is.
We independently select and share the products we love—and may receive a commission if you choose to buy. You've got this.
