Blogmas Day 3: Stocking Filler Gift Guide

Hi Guys and Welcome to Blogmas Day 3!

Todays post is all about stocking fillers and gifts that are under £15! So whether you are on a budget for your friends, or planning a stocking for someone close, or maybe need ideas of your own to put on your own christmas list; then this gift could come in handy!

To see more stocking fillers see my pinterest

1. Mugs
Even if you don't drink hot drinks, mugs are a great stocking filling, as you could use them for decorative purposes or even use them as a make up brush holder or a pen holder on your desk. My two picks are the Cath Kidtson mugs and the Anthropologie mugs. They are both great prices as well. So even if you are buying for a secret santa or a friend, you could fill them with marshmallows and hot chocolate power for a cute little gift.

2. Mini Beauty Sets
I personally love mine beauty gift sets, especially if you want to try out a product or want to give someone a beauty item that you really love without breaking the bank. Even if you don't have a stocking, you can even get some that hang on the christmas tree, like this one from Emma Hardie. Also, Topshop do some great little beauty sets as well.

3. Body 
Tubs of body butter from Soap & Glory, or body souffle from & Other Stories are great little gifts, that you could even buy a few of and make a gift set of your own. Or if you are doing stockings for someone, place one of these products in their stocking. If the person you are buying for are not into body butters, then why not but a mini gift set in from Lush or The Body Shop.

4. To keep warm in the winter
One of the best things I feel about winter and christmas is the amount of winter accessories that are just to die for. For example, scarves and glove sets Or hot water bottles with fluffy socks. I know this are rather girly gifts, but if you are buying for the man in your live Burtons and Topman do some really nice scarves and novelty hats.

5. Notebooks and cute stationary 
Now this is the category that I could simply fill up a whole stocking with. There are so many cute notebooks out there this year, like this one from Ted Baker, or if you are on a bit of a budget there is this one from James & Friends. In terms of stationary, Paperchase do some really lovely highlighters and gel pens sets.

6. Books, CDS and DVDS
Personally, I feel a stocking is incomplete with out at least one DVD or CD. There are so many good CDS out there at the moment, and if you know there music taste then this should be pretty easy. In terms of books maybe add a cook book, or a colouring in book. If they are into their beauty then why not get this one from Benefit. 

7. Sweets and Chocolate 
It is christmas after all, so there really should be some sort of 'candy' in there as the Americans might call it. TK Max have some really nice and cheap sweets in little glasses. Or you can try debenhams or John Lewis, who are more expensive but look amazing with the old fashion glass jars filled with old fashion sweets. 

8. What they 'really' need' 
If you are buying for someone who is at University or who isn't a teenager or a child, then maybe add something into their stocking that you know they will actually use and maybe want without even knowing. For example, if you are buying for someone who loves tea, then buy some packets of their favourite tea (this year there are also loads of tea sets out). 

9. Homemade
The last category is all about homemade stocking fillers. Whether that be homemade biscuits wrapped in ribbon, or chocolate, or a hot chocolate starter set. Homemade gifts are such a lovely idea, and in the next week or so there will be a whole post on homemade gifts!
