Christmas in the northern hemisphere involves peaceful snowfall, crackling fireplaces, and comfy sweaters. But it’s also pretty cold in many places. When it comes time to buy Christmas presents for your loved ones, it’s natural to want to buy something that will keep them cozy and warm on cold winter nights. We’ve scoured the internet for the cutest and coziest stocking stuffers to keep you warm and toasty. All are under $20, so they’re budget-friendly, too.
Super Cozy Stocking Stuffers
1. Touchscreen Gloves
Whoa! You didn’t expect this one, did you? Yes, touchscreen gloves are the perfect cozy stocking stuffer. Anyone who lives in a cold climate needs gloves and even if they already have a favorite pair, it’s nice to have some back-ups on hand (haha) for when a glove goes missing. We love these lightweight knit gloves because they’re lined in wool and compatible with smartphones and other touchscreen devices.
2. Zippo Rechargeable Hand Warmer
Cold hands are not cozy. Whether it’s from sitting in a cold office or waiting for the bus, sometimes gloves aren’t practical or aren’t warm enough. While disposable hand warmers are nice, they create a lot of waste. This rechargeable hand warmer from Zippo is perfect to keep in a coat pocket or purse to provide warmth whenever your hands are cold.
It recharges via USB and you can also use it to charge other USB devices like smartphones and cameras. Handy and warm!
3. Vouchers for Lovers
Sometimes the secret to staying warm is creating your own heat. This set of coupons is a romantic gift for partners that gives some excuses to get closer on chilly winter nights. Whether it’s for a romantic candlelit massage or a cozy cuddle session, these vouchers are the gift that keeps on giving.
This set of vouchers is more PG-13. If you’re looking for some more adult coupons, try these Sex Checks instead.
4. Slipper Socks
Nothing’s better after coming home from a long day of work that slipping on some soft jammies and some cozy slipper socks. This pair is particularly warm thanks to the sherpa fleece lining. The treaded bottoms mean you won’t slip around on hard floors. Comfy and perfect to slip in a stocking (hah!).
5. Shower Steamers
Nothing is better on a cold winter day than a warm bath…except maybe a hot shower. Especially when you’re feeling sick, a shower can open up your sinuses and relieve congestion while bringing up your body temperature. Shower steamers are like a bath bomb for your shower. You put them on the shower floor and they release essential oils to enhance your shower. A lovely gift for those bath adverse relatives.
6. Bamboo Knitting Needles
If your loved one is crafty, they probably enjoy the hobby of knitting. It’s one of the coziest hobbies, perfect for winter months when you’re stuck indoors and just want to stay warm. This set of bamboo knitting needles comes in 18 sizes, perfect for knitting scarfs, sweaters, and other toasty winter accessories.
7. Christmas Candle Set
There’s something about holiday scents that make a house seem cheerier and warmer. This collection of Christmas-inspired candles is the perfect gift to add a little extra holiday cheer to a cold and gloomy day. This set of 2 oz tin soy candles are scented as Christmas Splendor, Christmas Tree, Egg Nog, and Gingerbread. They’re perfectly sized to tuck into a loved one’s stocking.
8. Bath Bombs Gift Set
If your loved one likes to unwind in a warm bath at the end of a stressful day, this is the gift for them. This gift set of bath bombs is perfectly sized and priced as a stocking stuffer, coming with six different essential oil scented varieties to match a variety of moods and needs.
9. Slouchie Beanie Hat
Cozy, cute, and stylish, a warm knit hat is one of the most essential winter accessories. This women’s slouchy beanie looks great with any outfit or occasion, plus it comes in a ton of color options so you can get the perfect shade for your loved one.
10. Tea Drops
Tea is one of the coziest winter beverages. There’s something about holding a hot cup of tea with both hands that really warms your body and makes you feel content. Rather than giving regular old tea bags or loose tea, Tea Drops are the perfect cozy stocking stuffer. Tea drops are like loose leaf tea, but there’s no measuring, just drop one in a hot cup of water and enjoy delicious herbal teas. This cute gift is perfect for mom or your sister.
11. Collapsible Coffee Mug
Outdoor activities like hiking or camping aren’t very cozy in winter, but it can be a whole lot warmer with a nice hot drink. We love these collapsible coffee cups because you can easily carry them anywhere and use them to drink anything. They’re perfect for carrying coffee on the go and then when you’re done drinking, you can collapse the cup and stow it in a bag or pocket. It also prevents extra waste and trash. Plus, it’s compact to slip into a loved one’s stocking.
12. Knitted Infinity Scarf
Cold necks are the number one cause of anty-cozy feelings. A nice chunky infinity scarf is the number one solution for cold necks. Maybe not, but these toasty scarfs are colorful, comfy, and keep you warm during winter weather. They may be a little big to fit in a Christmas stocking, but they’re priced just right to make a cozy Christmas gift.
13. Mug Warmer
This is the invention I didn’t know I needed until I got one. This is the gift for those people (like me) who brew a hot beverage, get distracted by work, and then pick it up to take a drink and discover it’s cold. This mug warmer keeps your drink toasty warm so you can savor it instead of rushing to drink it before it gets cold. Yum.
14. Lip Balm
Chapped lips are not cozy. It’s my opinion that every Christmas stocking should have some nice lip balm in it. We really like this set from Beauty by Earth. It’s a pack of four organic lip balms in delicious fruit flavors. It’s a great way to try new scents while provided leaf to dry winter lips.
15. Hot Chocolate Gift Set
There’s nothing more indulgent than a delicious, steaming mug of hot chocolate. This hot cocoa gift set is perfect for peppermint fans and anyone with a sweet tooth. It comes with a pretty Starbucks mug and peppermint hot cocoa mix. Yum!
