Christmas: Gift Guide For Stocking Fillers

We all love a little stocking present don't we? When I was younger I used to hang my stocking on the end of my bed and I literally couldn't WAIT with excitement to wake up in the morning to see what Santa had left me. I can still remember that feeling of being so ecstatic and excited about Christmas day that I could barely sleep on Christmas Eve! So in celebration of the stocking, I've put together a few ideas all below £40!



As you can see I had a little bit of an accidental creme and gold theme going on here but you can't go wrong with neutrals! I don't know where to start as all of these gifts are just lovely. I will start with the Harry Potter colouring book because HELLO AMAZING?! I hastily snapped one of these up for myself as I'm a bit of a not-so-secret HP nerd. I'd be lying if I said I didn't buy Harry Potter trivial pursuit for Christmas.

The bath oil from The White Company is a subtle hint to anyone out there that might be wondering what to buy me....ha! I just adore the 'Noir' scent is my absolute favourite out of their range of divine flavours. I always tend to opt for masculine, woody smells so it suits me perfectly plus I do love a good bath. If you're friend or family isn't up for a bottle of bath oil then perhaps a bottle of vodka would be better?! I love these cute little bottles* from Just Miniatures, aren't they adorable? What is it about mini versions of stuff that instantly make it cute, even if it's a bottle of alcohol! You can also get your bottle personalised which is a nice idea.

How cute is the Estella Bartlett penguin necklace? I also included one of their bracelets too as they're so affordable and have so many adorable styles.

Cashmere bed socks and the waffle hot water bottle because who doesn't love days spent on the sofa lounging about in December? Or any other month of the year now I mention it. I actually had a look at these socks when I nipped in The White Company the other day and my they are soft.

The Diptyque candle is probably a little bit of stocking wishful thinking BUT it is the travel size version which is £20! If you're not up for splashing out 40 pounds on a candle then these smaller sized versions are a good option and the perfect size for a stocking if I do say so myself...
