Under $50: Unique Gifts & Stocking Stuffers for Women

best gifts for women under $50

While holidays are looking a little different this year, that doesn’t mean we’re throwing all our favorite traditions out the window. In fact, it’s more important than ever to stick to those traditions and make our new normal a little less strange.

Given the ongoing global pandemic, it looks like most holiday shopping will be done almost exclusively online. Oof.

I feel you, finding the perfect gift for everyone on your list can be difficult—especially through the computer. Add in a (perhaps tighter than usual) budget, and you’ve got a serious challenge.

That’s where I come in. I scoured the internet and found the best under-$50 gifts for all the lovely ladies in your life—so you don’t have to.

(And if you’re stumped about the men in your life, check out these round-ups: 40 Gifts for Dads Who Want Nothing and 25 Gift Ideas for Guys Who Have Everything.)

From an electric corkscrew to the chicest at-home workout gear around, these fool-proof presents are sure to wow even the pickiest of ladies.


For me, holiday season means one thing and one thing only: beauty gift sets. It’s the perfect time to try something new at a fraction of the original cost or stock up on old faithfuls.

I’ve been seriously eyeing the Kjaer Weis Signature Glow Kit. The brand’s absolutely epic packaging is the cherry on top of an already great deal.

One of my favorite sets this year (which I actually own!) is the Pillow Talk Lip Secrets from Charlotte Tilbury. The infamous nude shade is universally flattering (trust me), so it quite literally makes the perfect gift for any makeup-wearing person on your list.

Given all the time we’ve been spending at home this year, a gift that elevates the WFH lifestyle is both thoughtful and on-brand for 2020.

A personal favorite? This electric corkscrew, given I’ve split one too many corks this year. I also love the Le Labo x The Laundress detergent—it puts a chic spin on otherwise boring laundry.


I know what you’re thinking: why would anyone want a pill organizer for the holidays? Stay with me, folks. As someone who takes daily medication, it’s been a serious struggle to find a chic, convenient storage method. This pill box is essentially the answer to my prayers—sleek enough to throw in my purse if I’m out for the night, chic enough to leave out in plain sight.

As for other standouts, I’m already a longtime fan of Baggu’s reuseable nylon bags, so I am all over their (ridiculously cute) new wine bags.

And, of course, I had to include the cult-favorite Bala Bangles—perfect for getting a jumpstart on that New Years fitness goal.
