Last up on my Gift Guide extravaganza is those pesky little last-minute gifts that add that extra something to Christmas morning. For me, stocking fillers should be a mix of fun things and bits you really love – things that might be small but are no less special.
Fun and practical, this Emergency Beard Kit made me chuckle, and might well make an appearance in my boyfriend’s stocking this Christmas! The set includes miniature bottles of Beard Elixir and a moisturising butter, to keep that face fuzz looking fabulous. They’re made from all-natural ingredients, presented in a handy tube, perfect for on-the-go grooming.
Speaking of small but special, I am very excited by the prospect of the Charlotte Tilbury Mini Lipstick Charms – in fact, I sincerely hope these make their way into my stocking! This cute little box set contains 3 of Ms Tilbury’s infamous K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipsticks in a range of flattering shades, perfect for getting that glamorous look without breaking the bank.
It wouldn’t be Christmas without a little Lush treat popping up, and I particularly love the Magic Wand Bubble Bar for a sweet treat at bathtime. Cheap and very cheerful, and scented with the infamous Snow Fairy fragrance!
For something pretty and sparkly, this gorgeous rose gold ‘Wish’ keyring would make a lovely stocking filler. Or for gents, this paisley silk bowtie from Ted Baker would make a particularly dapper gift – I know my man would be pleased to see a Ted Baker gift box lurking in his stocking, and this is a seriously stylish accessory for the festive season.
You might have seen the reimagined Ladybird books doing the rounds already this year, so why not make someone laugh with the gift of a carefully-chosen book to suit? There’s a whole range of them, but I particularly liked the Book of the Hipster for a giggle.
For the coffee connoisseur, treat them to a bag of Starbucks’ Christmas Blend, so they can get their caffeine fix every day instead of just on the commute. Dark, rich and spicy, this festive brew is perfect for warming up on chilly days, and tastes delicious!
Speaking of warming up on chilly days, these shearling mittens would make a gorgeous gift this year – stylish and super cosy!
