Under $50: Unique Gifts & Stocking Stuffers for Women

It seems like holiday shopping starts earlier every year, but don’t freak out! My best advice is to take a couple hours and crank out all of your shopping in one sitting. Another smart move: make a budget and stick to it.

Finding the perfect gift for everyone on your list can be difficult—especially when most of your shopping is done online.

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.

From the famous Amazon cardigan that 400 (!) of my followers purchased, to the coziest pajama set, these fool-proof presents are sure to wow even the pickiest of ladies.

Beauty Gifts

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.

  • Another one of my favorite sets this year (which I actually own!) is the Pillow Talk Lipstick and Liner Set from Charlotte Tilbury. The infamous nude lip color is universally flattering (trust me), so it quite literally makes the perfect gift for any makeup-wearing person on your list.
  • This body brush sweeps off dead skin and leaves your body feeling refreshed and invigorated. It’s best used right before taking a shower!

  • I recently got one of these hair towels and now I wonder how I ever lived without it.
  • High-end hand soap isn’t something you’d normally buy for yourself but this one is so luxe.

  • I was sleeping on press-on nails for so long until I found these. They’re the absolute best nails that give you a fresh manicure look (for a fraction of the cost!)

  • I’ve been swearing by this lip mask for years and still think it’s the best.
  • Hair oil that smells amazing and hydrates dry strands. Just use a drop or two before blow drying or styling your hair for a smoother, shiny look.

  • A butter balm that seriously softens dry lips while adding the perfect amount of gloss.

Home Gifts

Given all the time we’ve been spending at home lately, a gift that elevates the WFH lifestyle is both thoughtful and on-brand. This Grecian bust pot is so cute for a desk or windowsill and this arched vase is super popular right now.

The other route you can go is gifting something that’s useful in the kitchen or for hosting. A personal favorite? The mini Le Creuset round cocette which is ideal for prepping meals for one or two people. I also love this teak cheese board—it’s the perfect tray for serving snacks at get togethers.

  • Store leftovers or pack a lunch to go in this sturdy and stylish BPA-free plastic bowl. A silicone strap wraps around the container to ensure all your food stays secure.
  • This glass cloche would look so cute on top of a stack of books. Plus, it comes with a set of matches.

  • We all know someone who loves to host (and they’re almost always the people who already have everything for their home). Cheese knife sets are the perfect gift for those people because you can never have too many and they’re all so unique. This gold set is adorable.
  • This might be the chicest frother I’ve ever seen. It will instantly enhance an ordinary cup of coffee.

  • Know someone who loves to cook? This mini Le Creuset Round Cocette is the ideal size for preparing everything from cobblers to chicken pot pies.

  • Arched vases are so trendy right now. This one looks fancy but is actually super affordable. Take the gift up a notch by adding some dried flowers to it.

Lifestyle Gifts

I know what you’re thinking: why would anyone want a jewelry organizer for the holidays? Stay with me, folks. As someone who travels regularly, it’s been a serious struggle to find a chic yet useful storage method. This jewelry case is essentially the answer to my prayers—small enough to throw in my carry on, sleek enough to leave out in plain sight.

As for other standouts, I’m loving this gold bracelet from Gorjana and classic black tote (which is perfect for travel or kick runs to the grocery store).

And, of course, I had to include a trendy braided headband—the perfect winter accessory.

  • Hear me out—this hat clip is a new fave of mine. It has a magnetic closure to secure your hat on the go and looks like a charm when it’s not in use!

  • A nice notebook isn’t something you’d usually buy for yourself so it’s fun to receive as a gift.

Cozy Gifts

Winter weather calls for soft and cozy finds—buttery pajamas, furry slippers, festive beanies, you can’t really go wrong with gifts that hit home on the comfort factor.

I’m obsessed with these Barefoot Dreams socks—wearing them is like walking around with the cult-favorite blanket on your feet. Find some more of my favorites below.

  • A follower recommended this Amazon sweater as a Jenni Kayne dupe, so I bought it with zero expectations and WOW is it GOOD. Not itchy, looks high-end, and under $35. Gift one to every lady in your life!
