Christmas Gift Guides: Stocking Fillers


I still have some more gift guides coming up for you but today we’re talking about stocking fillers! Whether you’ve got a family member to buy for or a work colleague, here’s my lowdown of all of those little extra bits you can pick up for not a lot of dollah.


Lip products are always a good option, right? I adore the bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in shades Life of the Party (hot pink) and Party starter (coral), as not only are the shades absolutely beaut but they’re really lovely products. They have that minty thing goin’ on and sit really comfortably on the lips when worn, the shades are also so pretty on! Next is the innovative Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil in 01 and 02, which have become firm favourites of mine. The oil-balm feeling of them is perfect for giving your lips some err comfort (apt title, huh?) as the temperature drops. They’re nourishing and offer a hint colour, so it’s ideal for those who don’t want a strong lip.


I am partial to those little Christmas tree style decorations as presents – they’re so cute! The Lanolips 101 Ointment Fruities in Cranberry fits the bill perfectly as a stocking filler. Housed in lovely festive packing, the cult lip balm has a limited edition cranberry scent which is fresh and fruit! Next are two little products from Balance Me (one of my favourite skincare brands). The Balance Me Luscious Lips gift has their amazing Lip Salve and the Balance Me Beautiful Body gift contains the heavenly scented Rose Otto Body Cream.


I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: you can’t do Christmas without Soap and Glory! These two little sets are such great options as they not only look pretty, but you know the products inside are gonna be good. Soap and Glory Kissmas Cracker has their famous Sexy Motherpucker Lipgloss housed inside the cutest packaging  – plus the rose shade is suitable for so many too. I also love the Soap and Glory Three Times Butter, as it contains my favourite Smoothie Star plus Sugar Crush and The Righteous Butter to keep your skin soft right through til Spring.


Finally, who doesn’t love getting a new face mask to test for Christmas? With 3 in the set, the Masque Bar Anti-Blemish Mud Mask would be fantastic for those who are gonna definitely over-indulge this Christmas. I know I will so I may have to keep this one to myself…

What stocking fillers are you getting for people this Christmas?
