The Best Hair Accessories To Use As Stocking Stuffers

We may receive a commission on purchases made from links.

For many, the holiday season includes gifts from Santa, exchanging presents with loved ones, and receiving stocking stuffers. While items placed into stockings are small in size, they can be just as special as whatever is wrapped and placed under the tree.

For instance, jewelry, makeup, and hair accessories are all go-to goodies, and are perfectly sized for stuffing into a stocking. Hair accessories, in particular, are currently trending, as people add clips, bows, combs, and bands to enhance their looks. Yes, scroll through social media, flip through a fashion magazine, or watch a red carpet event, and you will surely see an array of these adorable accessories.

If you are still searching for some gift ideas, consider the hair accessory options below. They are all super cute, they are all under $20, and they are all sure to please any and all recipients! Best of all, they'll fit in a stocking.

A hair comb provides a glam way to accessorize

An elegant option, when it comes to holiday hairstyles, is to hold some of your hair back with a hair comb. This gives a nod to old Hollywood glam, and you get major bonus points if the comb is as sparkly as this one. The Celestial Comb from Kristin Ess — which is also a recommendation from Bustle — features gorgeous stars on it, and it can be snagged for just $8.

Several looks can be created with this hair clip set

The hair accessory that is chosen on any given day depends on one's outfit, destination, and mood. To cover all of the bases, give this Amazon hair clip set that comes with 28 different clips! There are pearls, marble designs, geometric shapes, and a variety of colors, allowing this gift to be mixed, matched, and worn over and over again. Plus, at $12.95, it is also on a recent roundup from Brit+Co.

A great gift idea is a pack of 60 different scrunchies

On a similar note, Amazon offers a scrunchie set made up of 60 different pieces, which is mentioned in USA Today as well. All of them come in various colors, and they feature velvet material. Hair ties are always disappearing or breaking, but with this set, a person will have some to put in their hair, to wear as a bracelet, and to share with friends ... all for only $11.99.

A popular option this year is the claw clip

The claw clip is back and bigger than ever, meaning everyone would love getting one in their stocking this holiday season. In particular, there are the Pearl Hair Claw Clips from Amazon, with four different sizes and a price point of $9.99. Women's Health also suggests these, as the high-quality resin and strong spring material help the clips look stylish and stay put, even in hair that is super thick.

A headband is the perfect hair accessory

Last but not least, there are headbands to consider. The versatility of this accessory allows cotton versions to be worn to be gym, velvet ones to go with everyday looks, and embellished options to enhance formalwear. One specific example is Anthropologie's Statement Crystal-Embellished Headband, as seen on Today. The good news is that it comes in several colors (black, cream, bronze, turquoise, light blue, raspberry, and light green) and is on sale (from $28 down to $19.60)!
