In partnership with our friends at Dame Products

One of the perks of being a wellness editor at goop is we get to try a lot of new products—from chic kettlebells to saffron lattes to thoughtfully designed vibrators—and make note of the best of the best.

That translates to some truly inspired gifting. We curated some recent wellness favorites that meet stocking stuffer criteria: Everything here is physically small, less than $100, and sure to please. Our advice? Grab multiples.

  1. “Okay, so, this is my favorite palm-style vibrator. It’s very soft and the most bendy one I’ve tried. It’s an excellent option if you’re looking for a vibrator that fits in the palm of your hand but you don’t like the feeling of super intense vibration on your hand. And yet it’s strong enough. It has five different intensities and five different patterns. It’s waterproof and rechargeable. If I could fly around on a sleigh and drop one into all my friends’ stockings, you know I would.”

  1. “The only thing I’ve written about more than vibrators on is my deep obsession with oral care and Cocofloss. I’ve given people Cocofloss the past several years. But now, an additional option for the oral-care aficionado: UMA makes some of the best beauty and wellness products, and we have its oil pulling treatment in the shop this season. Oil pulling is an Ayurvedic oral-care practice akin to using mouthwash, except better, obviously. After you brush your teeth, you take a spoonful of oil and swish it around your mouth while you get dressed and go through your skin care. This is a minty blend of sesame and coconut oil, plus neem, clove, and turmeric.”

  1. “There are too many people in my life who don’t know what ashwagandha is. And I’m thinking the Focus chocolates from FX might be just the right introduction. They’re formulated with 300 milligrams of ashwagandha extract, which supports mental focus and the body’s response to stress. Everyone’s getting a box, but I’m especially excited to give one to my roommate. I’ve swallowed up an entire kitchen shelf with all my herbs, teas, and tinctures, and this is my (delicious) bid to bring her on board.”*

  1. “I used to give everyone candles around the holidays. But a couple years ago, after a white elephant party where everybody brought a candle—it was hilarious—I was like, I have to mix this up. These days, I stock up on incense instead. It holds on to that warm and cozy factor everyone loves, and it smells great, too. Depending on whom I’m shopping for, I pair it with a pretty incense holder or a tarot deck.”

  1. “Nerd Alert is one of my favorite goop products. It does triple duty: It’s my after-lunch help for focusing calmly on work, a café au lait–flavored indulgence, and my go-to gift. It’s formulated with caffeine and L-theanine—an amino acid found in tea—and the combination is better than caffeine alone.”*

  1. “Ear seeds blur the line between wellness and fashion, and they’re a lot of fun. These gold and pearl ear seeds are self-adhesive, which makes them easy to place on acupressure points on the ears. The kit comes with a guide to ten common acupressure points from traditional Chinese medicine, so you can choose your own adventure. And the pearl seeds lend themselves to some serious style. Jackie Kennedy said it best: ‘Pearls are always appropriate.’”

  1. “I talk about this vitamin D spray almost as much as Kiki talks about Cocofloss. It provides nearly four times the recommended daily value of vitamin D. It comes in a chic bottle. It tastes good and faintly of citrus. And vitamin D promotes healthy immune function, supports calcium and phosphorus absorption, and helps maintain healthy bones and teeth. What’s a better gift than that?”*

  1. “I’m a big advocate for these sleep chews, which definitely earn their name. True story: When our science and research team was first developing them, I offered to try half of one at the office. (Why? No idea.) I had to take a Lyft home an hour later because I was falling asleep at my desk. They’re that good. My recipe for a good chews experience is to take only one, do it before 10 p.m., and don’t mix with alcohol. The last friend I gifted these chews to called them a ‘warm embrace,’ which is exactly correct.”*

  1. “Rooibos chai is my favorite herbal tea. When I’m taking my time to savor it, I wrap my hands around the mug, let the steam drift onto my face, and sip it while it’s just below burn-my-tongue hot. I love to add frothed oat milk with honey, too. Equitea’s Herbal Chai is a comforting blend of red rooibos, cinnamon, clove, allspice, cardamom, and nutmeg.”

  1. “It’s been years since I’ve worked in a lab, but I’m still an experimenter at heart. Lately I’ve been testing essential oils to see which ones I like best. Luckily, I don’t have to write methodology for these experiments. Instead, I play around to find out which ones vibe best with my energy. Daughter Alchemy’s Heart Salve smells amazing and comes in a cute bottle with a roll-on applicator. It’s convenient anytime I need to boost self-compassion, which is basically all the time.”
