The Christmas List of Stocking Fillers

One week to go and in a hurry to find nice gifts or little tokens right for each receiver? Check this post where small gifts for all the budgets are put together. It could be a Secret Santa or something for your colleague or maybe for your child's teacher or baby sitter.
A passport holder is always a nice present because  it keeps your documents  protected. This glittery one is by Cath Kidston and you can match luggage tags as well  for a coordinated look  while travelling.
This card holder  in a great blue electric colour is by David Hampton, made of leather. I like  small leather goods in bright colours because it is easy to find it in a bag or briefcase. If blue is not a favourite colour, this model is available in red, grey, olive green and brown.
With many coffee chains trying to cut down on paper cups because difficult to recycle, this lovely ceramic cup with silicon drinking lid and band  by Fat Face will be a nice touch. The mug is dishwasher and microwave oven safe in a nice flower pattern. Check other patterns for men as well at
Everyone has got portable technology from smartphones to tablets so everyone knows the moment when  the battery is at its last breath  while you need to be connected at all time. At Halfords you can find this nice power bank in a nice choice of colours. It can charge to devices at the same moment and it comes with a pouch so it can be stored while on the go.
Jigsaw has teamed up with Rococo Chocolate with the Rococo x Jigsaw to match some accessories like coin purses or make up bags with some bar of chocolates absolutely delicious. The patterns have been hand-drawn exclusively for Jigsaw and this lovely piece is beetroot burgundy. Pair it with a couple of chocolate bars.
I find adorable these ear studs by Matthew Calvin that you can buy at John Lewis. They come in these lovely glass test tubes and cork lid and they are made of silver gold plated or just silver. All the pieces are hand made. Hurry because they are  very popular and among the best seller items in the department store.
Keyrings are among those symbolical gifts and generally very treasured. It could be the key ring for a new home, a new car or a new chapter in life like a wedding or moving  with somebody and why not even the key of a new office. Longchamp has got these lovely star shaped Le Pliage Cuir  keyrings that can be used as a bag charm as well.
An umbrella is vital in any bag and if it is small it is a godsend because it can fit in our bags. The National Gallery has got a nice range of mini umbrellas with patterns taken by famous paintings  on display in the museum. After all it is nice to have a colourful umbrella while it's raining and every purchase helps the Gallery to  keep the entry free.
The National Trust is another charity that preserves historical houses and gardens and parks as well as castles, pubs, in a few words all those buildings and places special in the United Kingdom. They fund themselves through legacies, donations, memberships and other commercial ventures. A nice stocking filler could be this lovely mug with the exclusive Winter Twilight Leaves and Berries design that can be bought online on in shops at any National Trust site. Think of a membership  card for a nice gift as well.

A watch is always well received and a Swatch is a great gift especially if you know somebody who collects them. when you go to the shop or visit the website you are overwhelmed by the choice which is huge so it is easy to find the right one. I love this one called Color Calendar with a white strap and colourful dial.
In Italy it is tradition to gift a pair of knickers at Christmas so that you can wear them  on New Year Day for good luck. Generally they are red and even men receive them. These lovely briefs are by Tutti Rouge and you can find them in this cute bauble packaging.
These two crystal beads necklaces are gorgeous, one in black and one in neutral colour by The White Company. They've got a tassel and a metal charm as well and they are hand made. They come in a branded pouch and they are a delicate touch on shirts or jumpers.
