Stocking fillers are usually the best bit about Christmas shopping, everything is either miniature, fun-sized and fairly cheap. By the time I come home I have more stocking gifts than main presents.
There is no better feeling than sitting cross legged on the rug wrapping presents infront of a Christmas film before dividing the stocking gifts into sacks. Harrow and Green are designing personalised sacks for your friends and loved ones. Leave a personal touch and make someone feel special this Christmas.
Entertaining and games
Christmas is all about entertaining, although it’s easy to create a lot of mess and isn’t always the most environmentally friendly time of year. Give someone an impressive conversation starter with these cool glass straws from VASO. Equally, games break up the day on Christmas or Boxing Day- try Strictly Come Dancing card games, Logo’s or Taskmaster to mix up the TV specials (NOT monopoly). For lighting head to Red Candy to pick up some Pom Pom String Lights, what’s not to love?
Also available from Red Candy are niche small, affordable products which are all full of character and ideal for someone looking to make their house a home.
Skincare fit for a Queen, or King
Receiving luxury beauty products inside your stocking makes you not only feel special but ready to take on Christmas as glamorously as possible, besides what better occasion?
Having skincare products in your stocking allows you to stock up and get ready for 2020. We tried Magitone facial cleanser to properly get skin prepped for the festive period, especially with their cleansing brush which works by both cleaning and massaging the face. If you’re looking for a secret santa, Dr.Pawpaw Christmas Gift Set works perfectly as both a stocking gift or a cheaper gift when retailing at only £10 in a bauble design. Frances Prescott TRI SPRITZ is our final stocking filler suggestion for skincare lovers as the 3 in 1 product protects your face from environmental pollutants, cellular repairs the skin with coconut water and sets makeup ready for the day ahead.
If you’re all set with skincare, try our suggestions for Christmas cosmetics. CODE Beautiful are all geared up for the festive period, their Lip intense Plumper and SSL Soft Smooth Liner are formulated to give you more defined lips for the parties. Not only CODE Beautiful but Too Faced have launched a mini Better Than Sex Mascara in the shape of a ginger bread lady bauble to hang from the tree- we’re absolutely in love. Real Techniques are doing another dazzling gift set this year with Limited Edition Glitz & Glam. To clean up your makeup brushes after, may I introduce the most exciting stocking filler a girl could ask for… Style Pro Original makeup brush cleaner.
So enjoy stocking shopping, let us know what you receive this year.
