Few things compare to seeing your loved ones’ ear-to-ear smiles when they unwrap presents. However, it feels like stocking stuffers never quite get the attention they deserve. Often considered an afterthought, Christmas stockings never really had their moment in the gifting spotlight. IMO, a good stocking stuffer is an ideal opportunity to gift something that’s fun or practical, be it a beauty basic, a wellness essential or a kitchen gadget.

Whether you’re looking for a last-minute gift or an affordable crowd-pleaser for everyone on your list, here are 25 stocking stuffers to gift to every BFF, coworker and family member, to let them know you care.
