Your last minute guide to stocking filler success

Posted In: Uncategorised

How is it Christmas ina few days, time has absolutely flown this year and I am not feeling as organised as I usually am. I have all the big presents sorted and we have ordered the Turkey, but I haven’t wrapped any gifts, bought any parsnips or even sorted out my Christmas Day attire. And I don’t know about you but I always feel like I spend lots of time getting super prepared on the big present buying front, but when it comes to the stockings, I always leave it to the very last minute.

I thought that a few of you might be feeling the same, so I have put together a last minute stocking filler guide – most of these you can pick up in store too so you don’t have to worry about delivery times. Happy shopping!

FOR HIM

Matching bow ties

These adorable bow ties from Men’s Finest come in two sizes which make them perfect for Daddy and Son – or even Dog Daddy and Pup (in Mr Spinkdot’s case). They also scream luxury as they come in an engraved wooden box, lovingly wrapped in tissue paper. £69.99

Star Wars tangle teezer

Let’s be honest, the men in our lives often steal some of our girl items every now and then, and even guys need to brush their hair. Boots’ Star Wars tangle teezer is the perfect answer. Compact, cool and super easy to slip into a stocking – he might even stop stealing yours. £13.50

Christmas socks

Is it really Christmas if you don’t put socks in a stocking? You can buy them anywhere but I quite like these snazzy ones from ASOS.  £10.00

Beard accessories

Every man and his dog is sporting a trendy beard this year, so why not make it the stylish stubble a bit more festive and treat your fella to some beard baubles from Next? £6.00

Film fest

The best thing about the free time between Christmas and New Year are the duvet days you can have. And no duvet day is complete without a good selection of classic movies! Warner Bros have re-released a whole bunch of classic films with new artwork and numbered sleeves. The new additions to the Warner Bros. Iconic Moments collection can be snapped up at HMV, Sainsbury’s, Asda and Tesco. Blu-ray’s are £8.99, DVD’s are £5.99.

FOR HER

Mini perfumes

I love the mini Ghost perfume sets that you can pick up in Superdrug. They are so cute and perfect for popping in your handbag or taking on a night out. And what girl doesn’t love to smell good? £8.00

Personalised Vaseline tin

Who doesn’t use Vaseline? I always get a few in my stocking each year and they are so handy. This year Vaseline has jumped on the personalisation trend and you can pick up a personalised Vaseline tin from their website. £2.99

Neal’s Yard roll on remedies

Anyone remember the little lavender pouches your Nan used to keep in her knicker drawer? How calming was that smell. These little roll ons from Neal’s Yard are such a nice addition to any stocking as you can choose the one that works for you. Sophie etc leant me hers last week when I was feeling a bit fearful of flying and it sorted me write out. Instant calm. They smell gorgeous too. £7.50

Personalised pom pom

I don’t know about you but I am still very much enjoying the fluffy pom pom craze and Matalan have taken it one step further. They have perfectly combined pom pom and personalisation with some super cute accessories. £2.00

Agate bottle opener

Because girls drink beer too. Anthropologie has done it again and made the most random item beautiful. Their agate bottle openers are just stunning and will also make for a nice addition to any kitchen interiors. Hint hint, they also do amazing monogram cheeseboard and agate cheese knives! £16.00
