The women in our lives wear many hats. They're often breadwinners, cheerleaders, teachers, impromptu life coaches, therapists, personal chefs, chauffeurs, and so much more all rolled into one person. And for that, they deserve recognition and some serious R&R for all that they do for us.

So this year, we say go above and beyond with stocking stuffers that will make her life a little easier. Here are 46 ideas under $50 for every woman on your list that will leave her feeling so adored and appreciated.

Give her the perfect excuse to sit back and soak the holiday stress away with this luxurious drink caddy. The wine glass holder is crafted from ash wood and beach stones (hello, spa vibes at home), and suctions right on the shower wall. Meanwhile, the glass itself is made from BPA-free plastic so she can settle into the tub with zero accidents.

$9.99 (Set of 4)

Every woman could benefit from one of these scrunchies. Although they look like ordinary hair ties, the accessories have hidden pockets for keys, cash, a tube of chapstick, etc. In turn, she can finally go for a run, hit the gym or head out with her friends while keeping her valuables safe on her person.

Whether she's a homebody or a sucker for snowflakes, she'll love this premium scented candle inspired by snow days. The hand-poured soy wax blend features notes of crisp air, spruce needles, vanilla, juniper and frosted mint in a minimalistic container. Need more ideas? Try an electric lighter, a match striker or a taper candle holder themed after a woodland creature.

$24

The LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask has a cult following for a reason: It's incredibly hydrating, smells amazing and it makes lips look smoother and plumper overnight. You can choose from seven different scents like the sweet and citrusy Gummy Bear and drop it in her stocking for a dose of self-care.

If she's a baker, then she could definitely use an oven rack pull. This handy utensil is carved from bamboo, laser engraved with her name and will allow her to check on her latest creation without burning her fingers or straining her back. And if she already has one? Swap in a brown sugar bear, a box of gingerbread cookie mix or a set of holiday-themed cookie cutters.

ICYMI: Butter boards are sweeping social media, and someone on your list probably wants to try the trend out for herself. Start her off with this specialty seasoning kit, which features Sun-Dried Tomato, Lemon Garlic, Umami and Apple Cinnamon flavors. If you're lucky, she might whip one up on Christmas Eve.

Pretty and practical, this whimsical "plant lady" mug says it all. It's conveniently microwave- and dishwasher-safe, too, so she can use it as a vessel for her favorite beverage or as a house for her beloved pothos, ZZ or snake plant. Need more ideas? Try a soil moisture meter, a "rain cloud" mister or a disco ball hanging planter.

For the coffee lover on your list, we strongly suggest an electric milk frother. This handheld device works better than any manual whisk and will allow her to get that perfect foamy layer for lattes without leaving her house in the morning. And did we mention that the milk frother comes in 48 colors?

Avid readers could always use more bookmarks. These stunning gold leaves and flowers will definitely stand out from the rest of her collection and hold her place in the latest ACOTAR or Fourth Wing sequel. (And we dare you to find a more perfect motif for those fantasy novels!)

$18 (Set of 2)

Add some color and sparkle to her holiday ensemble with this "Merry Majesty" nail polish gift set. The square bottles will fit neatly in the palm of her hand, so she can get a tight grip before painting, and allow her to go for either a classic or bold look. You could also treat her to a press-on set, a nail polish bottle holder or a UV dryer if she prefers gel.

$15.99

Nothing says, "I care about you," quite like a beanie that will keep her head warm this winter. This cute and cozy accessory is made from AZO-free acrylic and is lined with fleece so she'll feel nice and toasty. You can choose from 17 different colors, too.

$12 (Set of 3)

If you ask us, the best stocking stuffers are pretty and practical — and these wine glass markers definitely check the boxes. Each set includes three metallic hues and will help her identify guests' drinks at her next gathering. You could also pair the markers with a new aerator, a book from a world-class sommelier or a set of chocolate bars.

$29.95

Whether she's running through the neighborhood or running errands, she'll feel better having this personal safety alarm on hand. The device is easy to use, with a pull-pin that activates a 130-decibel siren and flashing strobe light. Best of all? Five percent of every Birdie alarm purchased will be donated to organizations that support women's health and safety.

Cozy socks are always a good idea. Make her homebody dreams come true with a pair from Barefoot Dreams, the brand that also sells snuggly throw blankets. Need more ideas? Try a luxurious sleep mask, a scented candle or a soothing ice roller.

Claw hair clips are back and more popular than ever. (Thanks, TikTok.) Help your teen accessorize for school or trips to the mall with this six-piece set from Amazon. The soft neutral hues of the set will pair perfectly with any outfit they put together.

$25.99

A portable charger is a girl's best friend. (Especially if that girl's phone battery is always hovering around 10 percent.) Give her the quick boost she needs throughout the day with this iWalk Mini Portable Charger. The device is about the same size as a tube of lipstick, so she can easily toss it in her pocket or purse.

$14.99

Show the new mom on your list some love and slip this thoughtful baby bottle holder into her stocking. The cone-shaped device not only enables Mom to prep bottles one-handed, but it also prevents spilled milk during those late-night feedings. You could also treat her to thick stroller gloves for winter walks, a new stroller caddy or a coffee warmer.

For the stylish lady on your list, we highly recommend this ceramic catchall tray from Mark & Graham. The scalloped design will easily elevate her bedside table and give her a gorgeous place for jewelry.

Now, this is a failproof stocking stuffer. Help her decorate her home by putting a little money towards a new hardcover photo album or picture frame. You can purchase gift cards from Artifact Uprising starting at just $20.

$27.50

If the way to her heart is through her four-legged best friend, then snag this personalized pet necklace for her stocking. Each piece is made from stainless steel — so it'll last for years to come and engraved with both her pet's face and name.

$25

If she craves meaningful conversations and connection, then surprise her with the We're Not Really Strangers card game. Inside the iconic red box, she'll find 150 question cards, plus two pencils and two notepads to keep track of answers. As the game goes on, she'll learn more about her loved ones and have the chance to be heard as well.

Spoil the stationery lover on your list with a monogrammed journal. This stylish notebook features gently rounded edges, a faux-leather cover and a prominent initial surrounded by dainty florals. It's such a good deal, you could snag a few and slip them into multiple stockings.

$21.99

If she's into all things mystical and magical, then she'd probably love to discover a tarot card deck in her stocking. The Modern Witch is great for beginners as it follows the traditional Rider-Waite archetypes (which are easy to pick up) but features diverse and empowering imagery.

$12.50 $10

When in doubt, turn one of her favorite memories into a special keepsake ornament. We love this timeless enamel photo frame because it comes in two colors, two shapes and it's stamped with the date.

Make her evenings a little more merry and bright with a set of gourmet hot chocolate sticks. Each wooden dowel features a block of couverture chocolate topped with delectable candy cane chunks or cinnamon sticks. When she's ready to enjoy, all she has to do is swirl her chosen treat into a mug of steaming milk.
