With Christmas just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about finding the perfect gifts for your loved ones. Whether it’s a last-minute extra, or something more extravagant, here are our favourite stocking fillers for the festive season.
1. Tangle Angel Pro Compact
I always use a tangle teaser to brush my hair, but find it can be too bulky to fit it into my clutch bag! The Tangle Angel Pro Compact is the answer to this problem! It’s perfect for freshening up your party do while you’re out and about, and the design is fabulous – I really love the stylish metallic finish. The compact mirror adds something extra to the product, making it both versatile and classy.
2. Rose Gold Elephant Ring Holder
This is the perfect dressing table accessory and great if, like me, you’re always misplacing your jewellery! Rose Gold is the ‘on trend’ colour right now and this cute piece certainly hits the mark. An elegant gift that is stylish and practical, what’s not to love?
3. Bomb Cosmetics Mistletoe Kisses Gift Set
Bath bombs are a great stocking filler for the festive season, and these are by far the best I’ve tried. I could smell the fragrances before I even opened the box, which is always a good sign! The Mistletoe Kisses Gift Set is a quirky gift, the mistletoe gift wrap being the perfect finishing touch. This set is a great alternative to the usual bath sets that end up under the tree and the quality of the product is amazing! Unlike most bath bombs, the scent didn’t disperse in the water and left my skin feeling soft and moisturised.
4. Lisa Angel Personalised Bar Necklace
This unique piece of jewellery is perfect if you’re wanting to gift something sentimental this Christmas. The personalised bar necklace is completely different to the statement pieces of jewellery we see a lot of during the festive period, which is refreshing! There are a variety of options to choose from when customising this piece, from the colour of the jewellery to the choice of font for the personalised text. The writing on the necklace is slightly hard to read due to the size of the lettering but it all adds to the personal touch – a message just for you and the recipient.
5. Ted Baker - Ella Fragrance
This fragrance is stunningly presented with a beautiful Rose Gold stopper, making a fabulous addition to anyone’s dressing table! With top notes of bergamot and cassis, with orange blossom, jasmine and rose, the Ella Fragrance is quite a sweet scent, but the perfect all-year-round fragrance.
6. Connocks - Hawaiian Sea Salt Scrub
Containing sea salt from the Pacific Ocean, this scrub smells divine! The mousse-like texture alongside the fine grains means it’s not too abrasive on your skin but still feels like it’s doing something, leaving my skin feeling soft and smooth. With so many exfoliators available, the Hawaiian Sea Salt Scrub is a great alternative to some of the usual high street brands.

7. Sandvgist - Cleo Men’s Wash Bag
Whether it’s a weekend away, a business trip or simply somewhere to store his daily products, this stylish yet simple wash bag is a great gift. With a leather handle, zip, and washable lining, the handy internal compartments will allow him to separate different products and keep everything organised.
9. Pretty Green – Fairisle Men's Socks
Socks at Christmas may have become a bit of a joke, but this pair from Pretty Green are the exception to the rule! The pattern is festive without being garish, a Christmas gift that he can wear the entire year. The material feels ever so soft and is the perfect ‘extra’ for any gent!
10. Men’s Finest – Bow Tie
The presentation of this beautiful bow tie was exquisite. Arriving in its own individual wooden box with metal clasp, this 100% woollen bow tie is a beautiful gift for someone close to your heart. With so many parties to attend over the festive season, this is a great stocking filler for someone wanting to make a statement.
