Best Stocking Stuffer Gifts Under $25

While they are sometimes considered an afterthought, we find that stockings can actually be the home to the most coveted holiday gifts. Though small in stature, the perfect Glossier lip balm or clean-scented candle might be one of the most treasured gifts you give this season. We’re pretty excited about this round up of small but mighty gifts. We’ll take one of each, please!

Sugarfina Green Juice Gummy Bears

"With this sweet treat, you've got the best of both worlds. It's not OVERLY sweet, but also doesn't taste like juiced greens either. It's like the perfect apple-kale-lemon-ginger juice combination, but in gummy form. It might be candy, but at least you can FEEL healthy while eating them, right? But seriously, they're actually totally delicious." —Avery Matera, fashion writer/editor and photographer

Brooklyn Candle Studio Santal Minimalist Candle

"This is the perfect fall scent," says writer Erica Euse, but we beg to think that this Santal scent, with musty notes of cedar and pine, sets the mood well through the wintertime.

Essie Wicked Nail Polish

"Every time I paint my nails or get them done I'm always like 'Okay, what am I gonna do? Gonna take some RISKS, try something DIFFERENT,' then I end up getting this color literally every single time. Its flattering, chic, and slightly bitchy. Love it." —Emily Snider, media, culture, communications student

Glossier Balm Dotcom

"Never leave home without one of these. Love a little color and a lot of nourishment in a treatment that wears like a lip color." —Claire McClung, marketing

Flannel Blanket Scarf for Women | Old Navy

"Super soft and comfy, but cheap enough that you can buy a billion. It gets cold in NY, but I get bored. So I have a million scarves of many colors, pepping up my winter look." —Zoe Chapin, producer

Fresh Sugar Rose Tinted Lip Treatment

"I’m truly a Fresh fan girl. I always keep one Fresh Beauty Sugar Lip Treatment in my handbag, one in my diaper bag, and one in my styling set bag because I’m usually too busy to apply lipstick. It’s the only lip color that’s basically fool-proof in my life. It keeps my lips hydrated and the color never looks bad as it fades. The colors actually last a while too. It’s a bonus that they’re made with natural ingredients, SPF 15 and you can even use them as a cheek tint. All you need is either this balm with just a hint of color or if I feel like I need a bit more color, I’m obsessed with the color Punch, Poppy (which is a great color for fall), and the new color, Spice, which is quite possibly the most perfect nude lip color I’ve ever worn. If you have a friend that’s a beauty junkie, chances are one of these cult favorite treatments are in her arsenal like mine." —Liz Teich, blogger and fashion stylist

Invisibobble Hair Tie

"As a new mom, I'm always tossing my hair into a ponytail or bun. These are perfect because they don't break your hair and don't leave that awful hair tie crease - so you can easily throw your hair up and then back down without having to re-style." —Jamie Han, marketing and public relations

Weleda Skin Food with Free Travel-Size Mini

"I've tried every hand cream around and this one right here is the absolute best one on the market. I wear it at night with cotton gloves in the winter to find that my hands look years younger in the morning. I put it on my feet at night and sleep with socks on and it makes a huge difference. It is also a 'green' product which means there are no harmful chemicals. When I was on a shoot in Antarctica, I even put this on my face for an extra thick moisturizer. I keep tubes of this at home, in the office and in my bag at all times." —DJ Cunningham, journalist

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo: A Novel

"This is such a fun, delightful, interesting speed read. A little old Hollywood glamour, a little scandal, a lot fun." —Zoe Chapin

Ontel Veggetti Spiral Vegetable Slicer

"Dollar for dollar, pound for pound, the best little spiralizer around. I love that this is compact and handheld, so it's quick and easy to spiral up some zoodles and then toss it in the dishwasher." —Kate Foster Lengyel, Founder and CEO at SwearBy
