Gift Ideas for Women for $15 or Less | Stocking Stuffer Presents for Her

Updated on February 5, 2015

Fun & Affordable Small Gifts for Moms and Wives

There are a few main types of product that are traditionally gifted to women - such as jewelry, flowers, chocolates and bath stuff - but I've tried to choose a more unusual selection on this page, and they are all cheap in price but not cheap in quality.

Presents with a budget of $15 are often used as Secret Santa gifts, as gifts for friends or coworkers, or as stocking stuffers. There are all sorts of occasions when small gifts are required, and I've showcased a wide variety of options below.

I hope you find what you are looking for!

Hamilton Beach Food Warmer

I was surprised that this fun little kitchen tool was actually priced under $15 - I'd say that's a bargain! It would make an ideal gift for anyone who likes to host parties or who enjoys a fondue.

Looking at the reviews it seems there are some varied uses for this product including heating up a single serving of oatmeal, putting homemade air freshener inside, and keeping pickle solution warm for jewelry making, in addition to the usual warm dips. Lots of possibilities.

This neat little crock-pot has a ceramic dish inside which holds the food you want to heat, and then on top is a lid. There are minimal parts and nothing to adjust - just put the food in and switch it on - so easy! Both the ceramic dish and the lid can be removed and put in the dishwasher for super simple clean-up after use. Capable of holding up to 16 oz, this handy kitchen gadget is particularly great for warm dips and cheese or chocolate fondues, which is always a hit at parties.

Aqua Notes - Waterproof Notepad

I don't know about you but I always get my best ideas in the shower, so this waterproof memo pad would be an extremely useful solution! Notepads and memo boards are a classic gift idea, but this waterproof version really adds the novelty factor and makes it much more versatile as a product.

Raspberry Beret Shower Cap

There are quite a few awesome shower cap designs available to buy, including frogs, sharks and unicorns, but I've chosen this raspberry style one because it's so darn cute!

This berry beret has a funny green stem on top which is bound to get some giggles when worn :) It's a cheap and cheerful gift that would be fun to give a friend, and it also lets you have a shower without getting your hair wet so it's practical too. One size fits most.

Fred and Friends Salt-M Shakers

I love the design of these salt and pepper shakers; the top-half of the large doll contains the salt, whilst the smaller doll nests inside holding the pepper. It's a fun twist on the classic Russian Matryoshka dolls and would be a cute addition to any kitchen table.

These sweet nesting shakers have a hard plastic outer shell with the doll design shaped within the plastic rather than being printed on - which I think makes them look higher quality and also gives a minimalist look. The white color of the product means that it will easily fit in with any kitchen color scheme and would therefore be a good choice for a gift.

BUILT Neoprene Polka Dot Lunch Tote

This popular lunch tote bag is perfect for taking your packed lunch to work in style, and I love the array of cool designs you can choose from - although this floral one is my favorite! Just choose which style you think would suit the recipient best :)

Claybox Sunflower Travel Umbrella

This cheerful sunflower umbrella would add sunshine to any gloomy day, and is ideal for carrying around in your bag on a day out too since it folds down to a compact 8.7" long.

Non-Skid Red Ruby Slipper Socks by Foot Traffic

Traditionally, novelty socks are more often gifted to men, however I think it's time to change that with these 5* rated women's socks!

They feature a red ruby slipper design and are a cute gift for anyone who likes Wizard of Oz, musicals like 'Wicked' or just has a girly sense of fun.

Most of the sock is blue, but the shoe section is a fabulous sparkly red, and they have slip-resistant soles so you could use them as slippers as well as socks. Warm and comfy, they have red and silver metallic threads running through them and would fit women's size 4-10. Act like a kid again by clicking your heels together and saying 'There's no place like home'!

Cocktail Recipe Chart Poster

If you know someone who has a home bar or enjoys a cocktail or two on a night out, then this is great gift choice. This poster is very inexpensive yet is a good size (24" x 36") and quality, and if you wanted to make it into a bigger present you could include a cocktail shaker or a set of cocktail glasses (and maybe some alcohol!) with it too.

The fun poster teaches the art of mixology with 48 recipes for popular drinks like the Margarita and Cosmopolitan, as well as lesser-known drinks you can try including the Zombie and the Fluffy Duck! Each recipe has a picture and also suggestions of the type of glass the drink should be served in. Some cool drinks to try out.

Res-Q Me Car Escape Keychain Tool

Perhaps not the most glamorous gift, but how many presents could save a life one day?? This useful keyring gadget is designed to easily break the window glass in a car in emergencies or accidents, and it also has an in-built cutter to cut through a seatbelt if the need should arise.

This small and handy tool is the kind of item you keep on your keychain 'just-in-case' and could one day help either yourself escape a car, or enable you to help someone else out. The product is used by firefighters for emergencies and the way it works is by shooting a spring-loaded hardened steel pin into the glass window with 12 lbs/5 kg of force to shatter it in one hit. A concealed stainless steel blade on the product is designed to cut through jammed seatbelts, and it's all very easy to use. A very practical stocking stuffer gift for a bit more piece of mind when driving. Made in the USA.

FORLIFE Brew-in-Mug Tea Infuser

A tea infuser is designed to allow you to soak loose tea leaves in hot water (aka steeping) to extract the flavors of the tea whilst separating the leaves from the drink - usually with a fine metal mesh - so that tea particles won't be floating around in your cup of tea.

An infuser basically has the same function as a tea bag but can be used to experiment with different loose teas, plus is commonly thought to produce tea with a fuller and better quality flavor compared to using tea bags.

FORLIFE Brew-in-Mug Extra-Fine Tea Infuser with Lid

To use this infuser, simply put the tea leaves inside, put the lid on and lower it into a mug or pot of just-boiled water. You can then leave the leaves to steep for as long as you want, depending on how strong you like your tea. And that's it - easy! The product itself is stainless steel and dishwasher safe, and the holes around the outside are extra fine so that even the finest teas won't escape into your drink. The lid insulates the tea to keep it hot whilst the tea is steeping, and the infuser is designed to fit inside a wide range of mugs and pots. A perfect brew every time - great for tea connoisseurs!

Innovera Gel Keyboard Wrist Rest

This gel-filled cushion is designed to be placed in front of your computer keyboard to support your wrists whilst you type, and it would be an excellent gift for anyone who spends a lot of time on the computer at home or at the office.

Tabletop Zen Garden Kit

A calming gift which would make a lovely d├ęcor item on a coffee table, desk or shelf. The layout is designed using the principles of Zen in order to help reduce stress levels and create a soothing environment.

'Fred and Friends' Measuring Wine Glass

I love the name of this product; 'Sauced'! It's basically a wine glass, however on the sides are accurate measurements showing 1/4 cup measurements and 'sips' measurements so you can judge what amount you need to put into your cooking - and how much you treat yourself along the way!

Lobers Women's Striped Headphone Earmuffs

I love the colorful stripes on these knitted headphones, and they are a fantastic idea for listening to music or talking on your phone in the cold weather - whether you're walking the dog or chilling out in a ski lodge!
