Possibly one of my favourite gift guides to write up – the stocking fillers! I love finding all sorts of little treats to put together for stockings… brands always seem to come out with the cutest miniatures of cult products, so I always find myself stocking up on those for travelling! Here are some of my stocking recommendations this year:
Beauty minis always seem to make amazing ‘filler’ gifts, and I like to include top ups of my favourite items on my wishlist so that I have plenty for the new year! Lip balms are great to stuff a stocking with and the EOS Lip Balm Trio Festive Tin* comes with three limited edition scents that come in a reusable gold tin. The Bourjois Java Powder would fit perfectly into a smaller stocking, as would a Glossier Cloud Paint (two of my favourite mini beauty products right now!). Essentials also make for more practical stocking stuffer gifts, and I like to splurge a little on those – the Charlotte Tilbury Take It All Off is my favourite eye makeup remover, but it’s definitely more of a ‘treat’ item that would be a lovely ‘essential’ to receive in a stocking.
For some more luxe beauty gift ideas, I love the IT Cosmetics Confidence In Your Glow Blush* – it’s one of the largest blushes I own and the colours are absolutely gorgeous! It comes in beaut magnetic packaging with a gorgeous large mirror as well. The Pixi MatteLast Liquid Lipsticks* are possibly my favourite (and most used) liquid lipsticks this year, and the brand has recently launched a few new brighter shades which I know I’ll be wearing a lot this season. If you’re buying for someone who loves a good liquid lip, this is definitely the line to choose from! I’ve also recently discovered Axiology – a natural, organic, vegan beauty brand that offer a wide range of lipsticks in all different shades. My favourite shade is Joy, a ‘your lips but better’ universally flattering nude that I’ve been reaching a lot.
I’ve spoken about how gorgeous the Jurlique Christmas sets are this year, and the Jurlique Signature Rose Duo* is one of my favourites as a stocking filler. It comes with a travel size hand cream and rose hydrating mist which are two cult products from the brand. The box that the products come in is absolutely stunning -all rose printed with gold foil embossing on the front.
Stationery also makes for great stocking fillers, and I’ve been loving Rifle Paper Co. and Ban.do for some cute and colourful pieces – these compliment pencils are very fun, as is this desk pad. I love keeping a diffuser in my office and this one from The White Company sounds perfect for the new year. I always have a few bars of cute chocolate on hand as extra gifts and I love the ones that Oliver Bonas have available – they offer some really unique flavours in pretty pastel packaging making them a little more special than the regular Christmas chocolate!
