Christmas Gift Guide: Stocking Fillers

They are called Stocking Fillers but sometimes we can use them for those Secret Santa parties or to gift a work colleague or a special neighbour. A list of nice little things that can be bought and kept for those emergency gifts  for a last minute invitation or unexpected present.
Hair clips are always a nice gift and even with short hair it is possible to adorn your head with hair clips. Now there are very popular and these tortoiseshell ones can be found at Anthropologie as well as other styles in different colours.

Give the gift of no single use cups with this nice set by Next. It comprises a travel mug and four flavoured coffees. A lovely gift if the receiver is a coffee lover and it comes in a giftable packaging.  The travel mug will be always in the bag ready to have it filled up with hot drinks at  coffee shops as well as keeping  it at the work desk.
A trinket tray is such a lovely and useful item to give because  for example I have one on my bedside table where I put my watch or other small jewellery like earrings or rings when I am off to bed. This cloud shaped one is by White Stuff and it is made of porcelain.
It is one of the most popular gift this year after all the campaigns to reduce the use of single use plastic bottles. These are by Kirkton House and can be found at Aldi and  they keep the hot and cold drinks for longer so great at the gym, or commuting or just out and about. Great designs like the marbled one, the pink pearlescent or the monochrome print.
Eye masks are always nice gifts because great for travelling or for home use because sometimes you need to sleep when it is bright daylight. Luckily I had an eye mask when I have caught a very nasty flu and I could sleep during the day. This festive  eye mask is by Cyberjammies with a bauble print and it is made of cotton and modal. A matching pyjama is available too.
In this picture there are two ideas for a very nice stocking filler. The zebra scarf by Hobbs is a perfect present with the animal trend still going very strong and the belts on top are in three different patterns from the plain black to snake print and leopard print. All in leather for a very sophisticated gift.
Adults love dinosaurs as well as kids, so just head to the Natural History Museum or buy online one of more of these egg cups in porcelain. Buying from a museum help to support them and keeping the entrance free of charge too. My favourite is the orange T.Rex.
A diary is always a lovely gift to give and I must say that I prefer paper diary to those tech apps on mobiles. Paperchase has got an impressive selection of 2020 diaries for all the tastes so it will be easier to find something for everyone.
This one is for the kids. In case some friend comes around with a toddler, keep one or more of this lovely Apollo Twinkles Bike Bell depicting a bright Unicorn and you will conquer a young heart. You can find it at Halfords as well as other Unicorn themed bike accessories.
Another two in one ideas with the mini umbrella and the foldable bag by Hunter. Two very useful items that should always be in anyone bag. I haves topped to use plastic bags so a foldable bag is perfect for my shopping and I won't even start about the umbrella. We live in UK and showers always catch us when we less expecting them. So a mini umbrella can be whipped out and used to save our hair and outfits.
I wouldn't relegate this box of Glow in the Dark Unicorns, that you can find at Tesco, just for kids. I know more than one adult who would be very happy to receive this little gift  and decorate a corner of a room, but also teenagers. There are 24 Unicorns and adhesive dots for easy fixing ad you can buy them online while doing your food shopping.
A mug is a gift I love, never mind how many I have. One more is just a great gift. These from Fortnum & Mason  have the initial and they are made of fine bone China. If you like you can pair it with a box of tea or a tea strainer and you have Christmas covered.
