Christmas Gift Guide: Stocking Fillers

Hello Everybody,

So now the 'C' word is officially in use I thought I would do a Christmas themed post - (because why not?!) I don't know about you, but I love buying gifts more than receiving them, because it means I get to trawl through endless websites brimming with seasonal offers I can't refuse. My favourite kind of presents are Stocking Fillers, ever so cute and a tad silly, stocking fillers can even be 'luxurified' (yes that is now a word) for the more discerning recipient.

1. Socks
You can't go wrong with socks. Mum, Dad, best friend, mortal enemy, distant-relative-that-you've-never-even-met-before - they're bound to wear socks at some point in the near future. Now, I know what your thinking. Socks are boring right? Who wants socks for Christmas? Think again.

My favourite being these adorable christmas pudding socks with ickle smiling faces adorning the rim.

You can find cute, fun, and super comfy socks anywhere and everywhere. Just avoid the scratchy ones, nothing says 'I don't like you' like cheap and nasty socks.

2. A novelty item
A bit of fun is always appreciated and novelty items are just the ticket. Pretty much every high street store has their own novelty section, I think personalising your choice of stocking fillers really adds a special touch. Instead of buying mass market, think of something they're really fond of and go down that route.

If you're a fellow animal lover you'll love Topshop's adorable selection of hotties. (there's a unicorn one! squee!)


3. Make Up
Make up just has that knack of being so easy to wrap and fits perfectly into any stocking. This is completely down to personal taste but I love the Soap and Glory gift sets. They look so beautiful and are great products.

This Santa Gloss comes in it's own candy cane packaging. I REPEAT - CANDY CANE. It's too adorablely christmassy (wow fab grammar) for words. Plus their glosses always get amazing reviews.


4. Book
I'm a complete bookworm and a sucker for a gritty detective novel. Although it's worth saying, if books aren't your thing then there are plenty of things that fall under this category, cook books, annuals, fashion diaries - whatever floats your boat.

The book I've chosen is cute, coffee table comedy. And it's about pugs. Obviously.


5. Mug
There's nothing better than a warm cup of something on a cold winter's evening. There are lots of different mug sets with all sorts of goodies tucked inside as well as one's on their lonesome.

I am a huge fan of the Mr Men books so I couldn't resist this when I saw it.


6. A bit of a treat
I love all things Body Shop, especially at Christmas. Their gift sets are divine and such good value for money. This is the Shea butter Polar bear Christmas gift set.


7. A Christmas Jumper
It's a classic. Christmas jumpers have been around since the dawn of time and are a necessitiy in this jolly season. I love this Topshop one because it's not too boring and not too in your face. Perfect for dressing up or down or just wearing over your PJs.

I really hope you have enjoyed this post. Let me know your favourite of my picks!
