But the price constraint can actually sometimes make these smaller presents harder to find when you’re trying to find a gift under a certain amount for each person on your list—questions like “would they actually use this?” and “do they have it or something like this already?” swirl around your head as you examine your options.
Don’t worry—sometimes you just need a little inspo to find the perfect, budget-friendly stocking stuffer ideas that you know the people in your life will genuinely enjoy and use often.
To make your life a little easier, check out these 10 stocking stuffer ideas, all of which are under $20 and you can pick up at your local CVS (where, if all else fails, you can always grab a gift card).

Shop Stocking Stuffers
We all know that one person who loves trying out new beauty products—and this set of 12 full and travel-sized makeup products will be a welcome addition to their stocking (or a pre-holiday countdown gift) this year.
Claw clips are all the rage right now, and whether the giftee already has a huge collection or hasn’t gotten in on the trend yet, this collection of six in different styles and colors is sure to be a hit. Who doesn’t love a stylish way to keep their hair out of their face?
What’s a stocking with no candy? Anyone with a sweet tooth will immediately tear into these iconically delicious Ghirardelli squares, which layer peppermint white chocolate on top of milk chocolate.
The skin-care aficionado in your life will be thrilled to receive these collagen-infused hydrogel patches that will soothe, smooth, and de-puff their under-eyes, especially during the hectic holiday season when their skin might need more of a pick-me-up than usual.
This is one of those gifts that the receiver is going to wonder how they lived without. Made with ultra-soft fabric, this wearable blanket is the definition of cozy. Soon they’ll be wondering whether people will notice if they wear it outside of the house, too.
Even the chilliest person you know might need an extra boost of calm during this busy time of year—and these patches are infused with premium hemp extract, ashwagandha, and passionflower to offer just that. All the user has to do is peel off the patch, stick it on their inner wrist, and soak up eight to 12 hours of good vibes.
In our humble opinion, no one can ever have too many sheet masks lying around—which is why they make such great stocking stuffers. You never know when the sudden need for a self-care moment will arise, and sheet masks are a great way to carve out a moment of calm for nourishing the mind and skin.
