HOLY CRAP IT’S DECEMBER!!
Get yourself a festive drink, a Christmassy snack and cosy up.
There are so many gifts and gift guides available during the festive period, and I wanted to put my spin on things. This post is a collection of stocking fillers I love and am either hopeful to find in my stocking or gifts that I think are perfect for some of my family and friends. Whether you’re putting a stocking together for someone very special or need some inspiration for some smaller gifts for friends or colleagues I hope I give you some ideas! Starting with…
~ The Beauty Fanatic ~
This is my strong point; I’m a bit of a beauty fanatic *as I’m sure you all know* so my friends and family are guaranteed to receive some beauty bits. There are so many beauty stocking fillers to choose from. I’ve chosen to include these miniature Real Techniques brushes – firstly, who doesn’t love Real Techniques brushes AND secondly, who doesn’t love anything in miniature??
I had to include the Pixi Glow Tonic. I cannot live without it and will force it onto anyone I meet. Pixi have made a special Christmas edition, perfectly stocking sized.
Next I’ve chosen some skincare from Beauty Pie, I’m a member so was able to buy these luxurious products for a fraction of the price – for more information on Beauty Pie read my previous blog post HERE. But I would also recommend No.7 or La Roche-Posay skincare would always gratefully received in my stocking and I have a few people in mind who I’ll be gifting these little beauties to.
~ The Stationary Connoisseur ~
I’m one of those people that obsesses over pens and fancy post-it-notes… I know I’m not the only one! What better than to receive a brand spanking new notebook or diary for Christmas ready for the New Year. The fresh crisp pages inspiring a brand new you. I’ve chosen this planner from OHHDear x Urban Outfitters for one of my best girls and this sleek black notebook which is a tad more masculine.
~ The Chocolate Obsessed ~
Just look at these chocolates. Hotel Chocolate has SO MANY festive gifts/flavoured chocolates on offer it’s tricky to pick just a few. So for my stocking gift guide I’ve opted for the medium sized festive box which contains eight Christmassy chocolates… perfect for Christmas morning whilst you’re opening presents!
~ The All-Rounder ~
Now for the miscellaneous gifts… starting with these gorgeous gold plated earrings are from ASOS, I loved the dainty gold studs and I thought they were something a little different to include in a stocking.
I’m a massive fan of cardholders, they’re such great space savers! So I had to include one I’m loving at the moment; both this purse and card holder are from MANGO and *SECRET* I actually brought two, one for myself and one for a friend.
Another fail proof gift for the ladies in your life is candles. Whether you’re buying an extra special Jo Malone gift for someone special to you or looking for a stocking filler, candles are your gal. I was given this Yankee Candle set last Christmas and I’m so excited to finally be able to burn them. Yankee Candle also have similar gift sets this season.
Lastly, I’ve included this gift in the ‘All Rounder’ section purely for the fact it’s suited to all genders and I feel guys might skip past the beauty section, but I know my boyfriend would be thrilled to find this vanilla pumpkin hand cream in his stocking – The Body Shop have some amazing gifts this season, again perfect for stockings as well as more of a main present. I’ve been eyeing up the vanilla chai sets…
Thank you for reading through some of my gift ideas, I hope you enjoyed today’s post. I cannot contain my excitement for Christmas now we’ve made it to December. Bring on all the festivities…
