The Final instalment – Stocking Fillers & Secret Santas
So here’s my last post on some great stocking fillers I’ve found this year. There are tonnes around, so I’ve tried to steer clear of the novelty stuff that looks good but has no actual use.
L-r : cats cradle kit and instructions, House of Marbles £2; Oh K face mask, £4 John Lewis; Batman egg and soldiers set, Lakeland £6; Cheesy Star Wars joke book; £3.99 Amazon; Toadstool nightlight, dot com gift shop online, £3.50; Hotel Chocolat Rudolf chocolate drops, £2; Emoji bus pass holder, £6 Paperchase; Monster hand tattoos, £4 Tate Modern (www.shop.tate.org.uk); Star Wars kids washbag and shower gel, £8 (reduced M&S) and strictly speaking not a stocking filler at £15, this Pusheen washbag and toiletries kit would put a smile on any tweenies face, and is in the 3 for 2 cosmetics offer at M&S, which is why I’m including it here.
You don’t have to stray down the total cheese route with these fab bits all under a tenner.
l – r : Wool hat, £3.99 H&M;Sprouts chocolate roulette, Lakeland.co.uk £4.99; Burts Bees bauble, £7 M&S (and as above it’s in the 3 for 2 offer on cosmetics at the moment); Korean cosmetics are having a moment and this Oh K face mask will tick boxes £4, John Lewis; Neom travel size bath and shower in a range of different de-stressing natural oils, £8; Cowshed cracker with handcream and lip balm, would be welcomed by any commuter, £10; Lulu Guiness edition vaseline lip balm, £2 Boots.com; Little Miss Wine O’clock will give a chuckle, £3.99 most book stores; Powder Love shower gel from Treacle Moon is a lovely fresh powdery scent at a bargain of £2 Tescos; Top Shop nail varnish in a huge range of colours £5 each; Star key ring from & Other Stories, £12; Rudolf chocolate drop, £2 from Hotel Chocolat; Salted caramel vodka, also Hotel Chocolat £4; these pleasing laptop usb fairylights would make students and office workers happy, £5.99 Amazon; Whittard salted caramel hot chocolate, £6.50.
Finally, a special mention to the Famous Five parodies, which include Five Go Gluten Free and Five on Brexit Island. Totally daft, and most definitely of 2016, but very clever and a good go-to for a last minute gift.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my canter through last minute Christmas gift ideas. All of these stockists are still promising delivery in time for the big day, but I’d get a wriggle on.
Wishing everyone a stress-free week. X
