Its everyones favourite time of year, well unless your big, green and a little fuzzy anyway…
In the build up to Christmas I’ve put together a cheeky little gift guide to help you get some inspiration on some stocking filler ideas of what to get the people in your life that you actually quite like the company of.
I’ll be keeping this post short and snappy as there’s a few recommendations to get through.
I really wanted to try and include a variety of price points so in theory there should be something for everyone. Having said that, I’ve tried to keep it all relatively affordable since its stocking fillers after all!

Everyone loves a bit of beauty, whether it’s the perfect product for full glam makeup or a balm to keep your pout looking soft and smooth.
Here are my top picks for beauty stocking fillers…
Too Faced Hot Buttered Rum Palette – £22
Too Faced make some amazing palettes, so this little mini palette is sure to please anyone who loves a warm toned eye! Its scented, just like their other palettes, and the formula is on point!
Stila Suede Shade Liquid Shadows – £24
Stila is well know for their Magnificent Metal liquid shadows, but why not treat someone to one of their suede formulas? These are liquid shadows with a difference and perfect for a quick all over lid shade, or just to smoke a little under the lower lash line.
Eylure Enchanted After Dark Look Book – £13.95
You can’t go wrong with lashes, and this look book from Eylure has 3 stunning pairs to choose from as a very affordable price. These are perfect for a little Christmas Day magic!
Too Faced Damn Girl Tree Ornament – £12
The mascara everyone’s been talking about… but in mini size! This is a super cute gift and a great way to let someone sample the mascara without committing to the full size.
Artistry Studio Cream Eyeshadow – £21.50
I spoke about these in a recent blog post and I am sure these would go down a storm in any Christmas stocking. The colours are perfect for the festive season, so regardless of which one you pick its sure to bring a smile to their face!
Brush Works Tweezer Set – £7.99
Brush Works make the best tweezers in the world! (in my opinion…) So why not grace your friends or family with a cheeky set of 4 perfectly shaped tweezers for them to perfect their brow game?
Benefit Tickle Highlighter – £26
With a pink to gold shift, this highlight is perfect for all skin tones (even those of you who are ghostly pale like me) so would make the perfect little stocking filler for literally anyone. The highlighter is stunning, and who doesn’t love a little sparkle at Christmas?
Fushi Lip Balm – £8
While we all hope for a white Christmas, what we don’t hope for is chapped lips, which tends to come hand in hand with the colder weather. No need to worry about that though with the Fushi repair lip balms! These are perfect little extras to throw into a stocking, but one of the things that will probably be most appreciated.
Beauty Blender Sponge & Cleanser – £19
Beauty Blender always come out with the best stocking fillers and this year is no different. Every girl (or guy) needs a beauty sponge in their life, so why not give them one of these cute little mystery sets which not only surprises you with what colour is inside, but also comes with a jewel shaped soap to keep it sparkling like brand new!
Leighton Denny Lip Duals – £12.50
Another great little product to throw into a stocking. The lip duals from Leighton Denny are really two gifts in one. With a tint on one side and a lippy on the other, these are perfect to pop on after you’ve eaten your first coat of lipstick with Christmas dinner!
In Vogue Lashes – £3.99
Back to lashes… like I said, you can’t go wrong with lashes. Especially with the In Vogue lashes as they are great quality at a great price point. You could even treat your stocking recipients to a couple of different pairs for this price!
Roller Lash Mascara – £11 & Precisely My Brow Pencil – £11
Benefit make tons of great products, and their Christmas gift sets and stocking fillers never disappoint! They have loads of mini’s to choose from to pop in a stocking, but two of my faves are the brow pencil and the roller lash mascara. Any girl (or guy) would be very happy to find of these in their stocking!
Pixie Beauty Lipglosses – £16 each
Parfait – Bonbon – Sorbet
Pixie make the most beautiful products, and they just came out with the Pixie pretties collection, which includes these lip glosses! All three shades are stunning, so whether you want to grab one or three, these will make a great stocking filler.
CROWN Brushes Purple HD Brush Set – £31.99
This little brush set is perfect for popping in a stocking. Its just small enough that it will fit in nice and snug, but the brushes included are full size and ready to beautify you! The set looks just as stunning as the brushes feel, so this is definitely a great ‘high ticket’ item for a stocking.
Pixie Beauty Lit Kit – £16
Another set from the Pixie Pretties collection, there are two different Lit Kits available, both of which are beautiful! The Kit includes a liquid lip in Pixies wonderful formula, with a fairy lights liquid eye shadow to compliment it. This is great for a little Christmas glam!
Flawless Liquid Foundation – £13 & Soft Blur Foundation – £8.50
Why not grab some minis? As I mentioned above, benefit brings out some great Christmas sets, but their travel size minis are also great for popping in a stocking. Not only are the products bomb, but the packaging it super cute making it perfect to give as a gift.
Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lip Bundle – £25
How about this iconic lip duo? Pillow talk is literally the perfect nude. Its a ‘your lips but better’ kind of shade, so grabbing one of these lip bundles is a great stocking filler!
Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb – £16
FENTY Beauty made some amazing products, one of which being possibly the best gloss ever! They have a few different shades to choose from but my recommendation is to give FU$$Y a go. This is sure to add a little sparkle to anyones Christmas!
BATH & BODY BLISS
Whether its for him or for her, you can’t deny we all love to feel clean and soft. So why not treat someone to some bits to do just that?
From bubble bath to body yogurt, I’ve hunted down the best bath and body stocking fillers for you…
The Body Shop Almond Milk & Honey Treats – £6
The Body Shop always knock it out of the park with their Christmas sets, and their stocking fillers never disappoint. One of my favourites from them is the Almond Milk and Honey range, so this little body butter and shower cream combo is great!
The Body Shop Juicy Pear Body Yogurt – £8.50
The Yogurts are one of my favourite product in general, and they are the perfect size to pop in a stocking. There are plenty of scents to choose from, but id recommend checking out the new Juicy Pear fragrance for Christmas this year.
MOR Christmas Cracker – £9
And its not Christmas without a cracker… So instead of bad jokes and poorly fitted hats, why not get a cracker with something a bit more nourishing inside? These ones from MOR are filled with various hand lotions, my personal fave is the Marshmallow scent.
The Little Soap Company Cleansing Bars – £4 each
Another little idea is these cute little soap bars from the little soap company. At only £4 each you can’t go wrong, and there’s a soap for everyone. Perfect to pop in a stocking for everyone with a shaving bard for the boyfriend to a hand and body bar for mum!
GIVE THE GIFT OF PERFECT SKIN!
Whether its your face or your body, skin is very important. So why not show them you love them with the gift of glowy, beautiful, perfect skin?
Or at least a few bits and pieces to help them get it anyway…
Milani Rose Facial Oil – £20
Milani make some great makeup, so of course their skin care is amazing too! The Rose facial oil is a relatively inexpensive way to give them a little bit of luxury in their stocking this year.
Peter Thomas Roth
Moisturiser – £45 & Serum – £56
One of my favourite skin care brands, and these products are perfect for popping in a stocking if you’re looking to give them an extra special treat. These bits are great for those with dryer skin, so if you’re shopping for someone who is a distant relative of the dessert, this is definitely for you.
St Tropez Face Mist – £17.60
Just because its winter doesn’t mean you can’t still have a healthy glow, especially if you get one of these babies in your stocking. The St Tropez face mist is great for those sun addicts to help get them through the colder months. This one is bound to bring a smile to their face!
Stardust with Glitter Masks – £4.99
Everyone loves a bit of glitter at Christmas time, so why not grab a glitter mask and get your pamper session started? These are great for adding a little sparkle to someones Christmas without having to pay an absolute fortune for the privilege!
REN Mini Body Gift Set – £19
REN make some great products in general, and even better gift sets. This little set is just the right size to finish off the perfect stocking. Filled with 2 mini body washes and 2 mini lotions, these are sure to make them feel nourished and cared for this Christmas.
HOW ABOUT SOME BLING?
You can’t go wrong with a little bling…
But when it comes to stocking fillers, you don’t always want to go too overboard.
Keeping it fun but classy, I’ve picked out a couple of bits which I think will go down a treat!
Trend Tonic ‘Big Sassy Balls’ Earrings – £12
Now if the name doesn’t do it for you, the earrings themselves definitely will! Inexpensive, but they are sure to make a statement. Trend Tonic make a ton of different styles like these ones, but the Big Sassy Balls are my faves. 100% worth looking into as a last little touch to finish off the perfect stocking.
Ted Baker Heart Stud Earrings – £22
Or if you want to add a little luxury to your stocking, how about some Ted Baker bling? These little heart studs aren’t too pricey as far as good old Ted goes, but they still give you that little bit of a wow factor when thrown in.
Nails always get overlooked when it comes to gift ideas, so here are a few bits and pieces that I Personaly would be thrilled to get in a stocking!
Sanctuary Spa Mini Mani – £5
Sanctuary Spa make some great lotions, so this little set made up of a file and some hand cream is sure to please anyone! We all have hands after all…
Packaged up in a cute little ornament box, you don’t even need to wrap this one before popping in with the rest of the goodies in your stocking.
Elegant Touch Xmas Nails – £8.99
Assuming you’re not shopping for someone who spends their life in a nail salon, a cheeky pair of xmas stick ons is sure to bring a smile to their face. Great to pop in a stocking, or even as a Christmas Eve gift to get ready for the big day. Elegant touch make a few different festive designs so its definitely worth checking them out.
Nail File – £ 12.50 & Slick Tips Pen – £12
And we are back to the luxe end of the scale with these bits. With a crystal nail file and the slick tips pen, these bits will be sure to keep their mani fresh and perfect throughout the festive season.
STOCKING FILLERS FOR HIM
You didn’t think Id forget about him did you?
As well as plenty of options for her and for them, I wanted to pop in a small section with some ideas for that lucky fella in your life.
Or your dad, brother, uncle, cousin…
Gillette Fusion5 Christmas Cracker – £9.99
What guy doesn’t need a razor? You literally can’t go wrong with this little cracker of a gift. Ands what’s even better, is that the razor comes with a little travel case which will come in handy for the festive season if they are away from home.
American Crew Fiber Duo Tin Gift Set – £22
If you have a larger stocking to fill, popping in one of these tins from American Crew would be perfect! Including a fibre putty and a 2 in 1 body and hair wash, this is great for any guy who like to look and smell fresh!
And lastly, a little round up of pretty much everything else that just doesn’t really fit anywhere…
Although pretty random, these bits are great ideas for stocking fillers if I don’t say so myself. Especially If you’re shopping for someone who isn’t massively into beauty.
Scent Republic Scent Pens – £2.99
These aren’t only cute but they smell pretty damn good too! They are super unique, and if you didn’t know they were perfumes, you’d probably question why you’re being given pens with no ink?
I love these for popping in your bag to top up on the go, as as they are small and very affordable, these are great to pop in a stocking as well.
Stitch Sainte Luce Handmade Charity Gift – from £10
Why not grab something from the under £10 range and give back while shopping for your loved ones? The Stitch project has been training women in embroidery production techniques since 2014 and provides a rare opportunity for women to learn a new set of skills. This women’s sustainable livelihoods project has enabled many women to earn an independent living. In return for supporting the project, you get a truly unique, handmade product made in Madagascar, and the knowledge that you’ve made a real difference to the lives of the embroiderers and their families.
Chelsea Peers Socks – £10.99
Its not Christmas if you don’t get a new pair of socks is it? So why not pop some in a stocking. These ones from Chelsea Peers come in a set of three, so you can either pop the whole set into a stocking, or if you’re buying for multiple people you can split the set up between them and make your dollar stretch a little further.
Yeti & The Fox Hangover Cure – £6
This is the perfect thing to include for anyone who likes to party hard on Christmas and new year (and any time in between). These little magic supplements help your body prepare for the booze and recover from it faster! £6 is a small price to pay for a clear head the morning after!
Sanctuary Spa Candle – £6
Another cute little item from Sanctuary Spa, and perfect to add a little warmth to their Christmas stocking. The candle is shaped like a heart and comes in a cute little tin which of course can be reused after the wax has been melted down. At only £6 you’d be silly not to grab one of these for your stocking!
Village Leather Pouches – £15
Another little unique item here, and these little pouches come in a ton of different colours and designs. These are great for anyone who always has a bunch of coins on them, or even to pop a few essentials in like a nail file or some tweezers to take with you on the go. The quality is up there, which considering the price point is amazing. These are a great idea for anyone who loves a coin purse.
CROWN Brushes Beauty Organisor – £12.49
A little bulky, but would still be great for a larger stocking. Such a simple item, but this acrylic organiser/brush holder is what every makeup enthusiast needs! I love that this comes with adjustable sections and even has a lid incase you want to store cotton balls or something instead of brushes in it. Acrylic organisers can be pretty expensive, so this is an absolute bargain and perfect if you are shopping for a makeup addict like me!
The Flatlay Co. Mini Open Flat Makeup Bag – £17.99
These little makeup bags are super unique, and the mini ones are perfect to pop in a stocking. If you’re feeling extra generous you could even stock it up with a few of my suggestions from earlier in the post. These are great little bags and truly one of a kind. Great for literally anyone, especially those on the go a lot!
