Last up in my gift guide extravaganza are those pesky little last-minute gifts that we all seem to struggle to buy but love to give. I personally love getting a stocking full of fun little treats on Christmas morning – who wouldn’t? To me, a great stocking filler is either a luxurious little treat, something small but thoughtful, or something all-out silly that’s sure to get your recipient giggling!
Falling into that first category is Cowshed’s Cowslip Manicure Kit, which has that essential kit to get the hands looking glamorous and feeling fabulous. It’s priced under £15 which is great value considering you’re getting two lavish Cowshed products (a cuticle oil and a hand cream). Finish this manicure-themed set with a mini Mavala nail polish which doubles up as the cutest Christmas tree decoration I ever did see! I love the colour Angel Snow, which is a very festive silver glitter.
If the ladies love nail care, give the men the gift of great facial hair this festive season. My partner recommends the Mr Natty range, and this Beard Shampoo is a fun idea that’s practical too. Slightly less practical, the Glitter Beard Kit. Need I say more?!
Something I always like to see in my Christmas stocking is a fresh new notebook, ready to be filled with all the ideas and musings of the year to come – and this leaf-print Ohh Deer notebook fits the bill perfectly. If you’re more into your tech, then a new iPad case might have a similar effect – and this chic men’s one from ASOS is just a fiver!
Back to those little luxuries, and a candle is always a great gift for me. One I’d love to receive is this super fun gold pineapple candle – definitely not one to burn but perfect for giving the living room a bit of glam!
And finally, because they’re my favourites and no stocking is complete without them, a box of Charbonnel et Walker truffles are just perfect. My favourites are the Sea Salt Caramel truffles but there are literally dozens of options. Enjoy!
