Christmas Gift Guide: Stocking Fillers

It's my favourite time of year, and my absolute favourite type of content to create. I think gift guides might just be my favourite? 

This year I've got three - this one is on Stocking Fillers for women and expect two more to come, including one on the bigger gifts and one for the men in your life. Now, let's get onto stocking fillers... 

IGK Hair Care

Okay, so it's not exactly a specific product. This entire brand, IGK Hair is something I have been lusting after since it launched in the UK. I recently got my hands on the IGK Multi-tasking Dry Shampoo, from £10 which has literally blown my mind. I have a few dry shampoo favourites, but this has surpassed them all. It leaves no white marks and gives my hair that little bit of oomph helping it have life and a bit of body. Currently craving the rest of their dry shampoo range... I also got my hands on the IGK Hair Foamo Holographic Hair Foam, £19 which I am yet to try but is the perfect Christmas gift - I will definitely be cracking this out at Festival Season! Super intrigued. 

Also on my to try list from the brand is the IGK Trust Issues Instant Scalp Rebalancing Treatment, £25, the IGK Low Key Cleansing Walnut Scalp Scrub, £31, the IGK Prenup Instant Spray Mask, £27 and their festive Pre-Party Glitter Sprays (they have them in different colours and they just look incredible. 

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Tree Ornament

I adore this mascara, and the adorable Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara Tree Ornament, £10 is the perfect stocking filler. Not only is it a blooming great product, but it is in the perfect travel size (and the cutest packaging!). 

Nailflix and Chill Nail Polish Remover Cream 

Can we just take a moment to appreciate the epic packaging of the Nailflix and Chill Nail Polish Remover Cream, £14.50. This is possibly the coolest way to remove your nail polish that I have ever seen. It's acetone free meaning it won't spill (who else does this all the time - I manage to get nail polish remover EVERYWHERE) and it hydrates and nourishes your nails. Bonus! 

Dr. Lipp Natural Moisturising Colour Lip Tint

The Dr. Lipp Natural Moisturising Colour Lip Tint's, £6.99 is one of my favourite every day lips at the moment. They come in a range of shades and add a subtle tint of colour but actually hydrate your lips at the same time. Perfect for the colder months to come! 

Impulse Influencer Body Mists

The Impulse Body Mists (I adore the Impulse Sophie Hannah Body Mist, £6 and the Impulse Helen Anderson Body Mist, £6) are perfect if you've got a regular festival go-er in your life. These are a go-to in my festival packing every year as they are perfect for an all-over body refresh. They smell great and generally you can get them on offer (they are currently just £3 at Boots!). 

Maybelline Be The Big Shot Gift Set

I adore Maybelline makeup. When it comes to budget brands, this is most definitely one of my favourites and this super cute set is a perfect stocking filler. The Maybelline Be The Big Shot Gift, £19.99 includes a gorgeous Burgundy eye palette (these are great and the shades are perfect for the Winter season), a mascara and eyeliner. Seriously great set! 

Lipstick Queen Drops of Jupiter Mini Lip Duo

I adore the Lipstick Queen gifts at Christmas time and this Lipstick Queen Drops of Jupiter Mini Lip Duo, £14 is seriously beautiful. In this super cute set, you get two adorable mini metallic lipglosses. They look super cute on their own, but my favourite is to pop them over a bold lip for a little something extra. 

Sisley Makeup 

I adore Sisley Makeup and their super luxe products an fun packaging makes them perfect for this time of year. I recommend the Sisley Le Phyto Rouge Lipsticks, £32.50. I've got the shades Orange Acapulco, Rouge Paris and Rouge Rio (all seriously gorgeous). They are super silky and I just adore the finish. The Sisley Phyto Eye Twist, £32.50  is a gorgeous all over eye shadow. I adore pencils like this for easy application and this blends seamlessly. Finally, I'd recommend the Sisley Phyto-Blush Sticks, £38.67. I have the shade Passion and it is a gorgeous rose gold. It gives your skin life and is beautifully glowy. Love this! 

OPV Highlighter

Highlighters are PERFECT for Christmas time and they are really having a moment. One I'm loving for party season (and beyond!) is the OPV Highlighter, £18. This is the perfect 'wow' highlighter and is ideal if you love a gold tone. 

Illamasqua Eyeshadows

I am loving Illamasqua's eye products at the moment and I'd really recommend the Illamasqua Iconic Chromes, £22 and the Illamasqua Jewel Vinyl Shadows, £15. If you're into a high pigment metallic shadow, the chromes are perfect but if glitter is more your thing then the Jewel Vinyl shadows are perfect. 

Jillian Dempsey Cheek Tints

If you know someone that loves quite a natural makeup look, or applies their makeup on-the-go then the Jillian Dempsey Cheek Tints, £24.50 are seriously perfect. It is a cream blush with a gorgeous velvety texture, the product is gorgeous but one of my favourite things about this product is the super cute and compact, compact. It is perfect to slip in your makeup bag as most blushers seem to take up so much space! They also work beautifully on your lips. 

Art Deco Liquid Glitter Shadows

I am seriously obsessed with Glitter eyes at the moment and the Art Deco Liquid Glitter in Moonstone, £17.95 is super cute. The perfect addition to any eye look! 

Doll Lashes

If you know someone that's into their lashes, the Doll Lashes, £10 are really great quality and are the perfect gift for a stocking filler! 

KIKO Sparkling Holiday Collection 

I have fallen hook, line and sinker over the KIKO Sparkling Holiday Collection. From the gorgeous packaging to the incredible quality - this collection is one to gift (or self gift) this Christmas. I have loved everything I've tried from the collection but the stand outs are the eyeshadows and highlighters. So beautiful! 

Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Eyeshadow Palette of Pops in Supersonic Girl

Okay, well any Charlotte Tilbury Eyeshadow Palette would be an INCREDIBLE gift, but this is one of my favourites. If you love an autumnal glitter, then you need the Charlotte Tilbury Supersonic Girl palette, £39 in your life. 

Stila Shine Bright Heavens Dew Highlighting Palette

If you are into sparkly highlighters, then you MUST try the Stila Shine Bright Heavens Dew Highlighting Palette, £45 (okay, maybe this is a little spenny for a Stocking Filler but could you IMAGINE how happy you'd be if you received one of these?!). There are three gorgeous shades for that perfect insta-highlight. I love using them on their own or blending a few together and the putty texture is amazing. 

Too Faced Sugar Cookie Palette 

I adore Too Faced's shadows, their Chocolate Bar Palette has been a favourite of mine for a long time and I fell for the beautiful Too Faced Sugar Cookie Palette, £22 as soon as I saw it. It's a gorgeous every day palette if you want to add a bit of sparkle into your day but can also be smoked up for an evening eye. A seriously great all-rounder and it smells incredible! 

Inika Lipstick Crayon Trio 

The Inika Lipstick Crayon Trio, £34 is a seriously great gift. Not only are these crayon lipsticks beautiful on application, they are super easy to apply and leave a beautiful finish. There are three shades in this set in Nude, Garnet and Red Brick. 

MOR Mesmerising Marshmallow Cracker 

I mean, first up - does the MOR Mesmerising Marshmallow Cracker, £8 not just sound incredible?! I hadn't actually heard of the brand before until this arrived on my doorstep but the packaging is super cute and anything with Marshmallows in is perfect for this time of year. Seriously. This affordable cracker is filled with a delicious scented hand cream. 

Le Couvent des Minimes Aqua Paradisi Botanical Shower Gel  

I adore receiving luxurious versions of every day items at Christmas and this shower gel is just perfect for that. The Le Couvent des Minimes Aqua Paradisi Botanical Shower Gel, £15 smells gorgeous and is a nice way to be introduced to this brand. 

Aromatherapy Associates Pearl of Wisdom Light Relax Bauble

Aromatherapy Associates are in my gift guides every single year because they are just so incredible.  The Aromatherapy Associates Pearl of Wisdom Light Relax Bauble, £12 is the perfect stocking filler. Not only is it a super cute decoration but the bath and shower oil is the perfect for a Christmas pamper! 

Murad Prep In A Flash Set

Murad is a gorgeous skincare brand and I love the Murad Prep In A Flash set, £20. This is perfect for any makeup lover as it's filled with mini's to create the perfect base for your makeup. 

Moroccan Oil Treatment Ornament

I have loved the Moroccan Oil Hair Oil Treatment for so long! This Moroccan Oil Treatment Ornament, £13.45 is the perfect stocking filler for everyone as it is suitable for all hair types. It's hydrating but light weight and is the perfect addition to any pamper! 

Roger & Gallet Hand Cream Gift Set

Roger and Gallet features in my Christmas gift buying (and guide!) most years because it's so truly beautiful. In my Stocking Filler guide this year I am including the Roger and Gallet Hand Cream Gift Set, £17. This pretty set includes 3 of their gorgeous hand creams and it does not disappoint. 

Antipodes Delight Hand and Body Cream 

I adore this body cream from Antipodes, the Delight Hand and Body Cream, £28.99, it combines macadamia oil with marigold flower oil and grape and is super hydrating and smells seriously incredible! 

Sanctuary Hand Cream Fancy

Isn't Sanctuary Spa just the epitome of Christmas? This super cute gift, the Sanctuary Spa Hand Cream Fancy, £4 featuring one of their lovely hand creams is just gorgeous. It can be hung on the tree or wrapped in a stocking - and I don't know who wouldn't love this!

L'Occitane Lavender Cracker 

 I am seriously obsessed with L'Occitane at the moment and this gorgeous L'Occitane Lavender Cracker, £10 doesn't disappoint. It's filled with a mini hand cream and a mini pillow mist - gorgeous! 

Fat Face Hand Cream and Lip Balm Set

If you know anyone that loves anything floral, the little Fat Face Hand Cream and Lip Balm Set, £12 is super cute. Super handy as they are both in sizes that you can just pop in your handbag to use on the go! 

Skimono Hand & Feet Masks 

I feel like stockings should be all about pampering and often your hands and feet can get left out! Sheet Masks are one of my fave things at the moment and the idea of a hand or feet sheet mask is so cool. The Skimono Hand Mask, £9.99 and Skimono Feet Mask, £9.99 are the perfect addition to your stocking this year! 

Anew Pamper Gift Set

I have to admit, I had forgotten Avon existed but when I was shown this super cute gift set I was reminded about how seriously great some of the products can be. The Anew Pamper Gift Set, £6 is so affordable and seriously great value. Inside you get a cleansing balm and a sheet mask and it's the perfect little pamper. 

Gatineau White Jade Facial Roller

Introducing my new favourite skincare tool. I didn't really ever think that jade rollers are something I'd ever get behind but OMG they are a game changer. My skin has been getting super puffy and sensitive lately and this Gatineau White Jade Facial Roller, £18 has been helping more than you can even know to combat that. It helps to stimulate lymphatic drainage and massages skin and muscles to eliminate of toxins, help firm the skin, relax wrinkles and ease tension. The super cool touch of White Jade soothes, de-puffs and tones. It is seriously incredible and for £18 you seriously can't go wrong. 

Emma Hardie Merrily Moringa Ornament

I adore the Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm, and this Emma Hardie Merrily Moringa Ornament, £10 is a mini one! Its perfect for anyone that ever travels with hand luggage a lot as you can squeeze it into your little travel bag - and the cleanser is just gorgeous. 

Jane Skrivner Skin Elixir

A gorgeous moisturiser or oil is the perfect addition to any stocking, and I am loving the Jane Skrivner Skin Elixir, £29 at the moment. It's the first product I have tried from the brand but I am loving it. 

Murad Dew A Little Gift 

Another gorgeous mini, the Murad Dew A Little, £10 is a mini of one of my favourites from the brand, their Hydro-Dynamic Ultra Moisturiser. Its in a gorgeous mini size and is perfect for travel! 

Antipodes Halo Skin Brightening Mud Mask 

I adore the Antipodes Masks and the Antipodes Halo Skin Brightening Mud Mask, £27 is my newest favourite. It's a gorgeous mud mask that leaves your skin looking luminous. I like using it if I have any blemishes as it helps to clear them up too! 

Alpha H Liquid Gold Firming Eye Cream 

Probably one of the most luxe products on my stocking filler guide, and definitely one of the most expensive but if you are looking to fill with a selection of luxe presents, then the Alpha H Liquid Gold Firming Eye Cream, £52 is a great option. Alpha H Liquid Gold is a cult favourite, and this eye cream is a a gorgeous gift for any skincare junkie. 

Neals Yard Remedies One Pot Wonder Gift

Another adorable mini, the gorgeous Neals Yard Remedies One Pot Wonder Gift, £15 do-it-all mini gift contains their Wild Rose Wonder Balm. It can be used for a number of things like a moisturiser or cleanser and it's perfect for travelling and smells incredible! 

Time Bomb Complexion Cocktails To Go 

I adore the Time Bomb Complexion Cocktails and the gorgeous Time Bomb Complexion Cocktails To Go Gift, £30 features 3 minis of the different toners. They are toners that target different things - whether you need moisture, energy or de-stressing these are perfect for fit in your stocking. 

Space Masks 

These Space Masks, £15 might just be my new favourite thing. I have really sore and sensitive eyes and it has been terrible lately, but these are my saviour. They are heated eye masks and are perfect for relaxing with. If you know someone who gets sore eyes too, or is just in need of a bit of a relax, these are seriously perfect and the star packaging is super cute. 

Skin Republic Detox Dream Set

Face Masks are perfect to stuff your stocking with and the Skin Republic Detox Dream Set, £16.99 is  the all-rounder. This set includes 4 masks for the ultimate pamper! 

Living Sea Body Care

This is a brand I actually hadn't heard of before but since trying the Living Sea Body Wash, £18 and Living Sea Bath Salts, £18 I just had to include them. The packaging isn't that exciting but I have been loving the actual products. They smell gorgeous and so relaxing and I have been loving using these after working out - so if you know someone who loves to exercise then these are perfect! 

Personalised Toblerone from Prezzy Box

I think I probably buy a Toblerone for someone every single year, but after seeing that you can personalise them, this is one better! You can pick up your Personalised Toblerone, £12.99 at Prezzybox and I promise you it will go down well. I have been known to pick up a personalised gift every now and again and this is a great idea.

Walkers Shortbread

Again like with the Toblerone, I think I pick up some Walkers Shortbread for Christmas every single year. Last year (and this year too!) I got my hands on the super cute Walkers Gingerbread Shortbread, £2.65 for the cute packaging and festive taste  - how cute?! I also am loving the gorgeous tins including the Festive Shortbread Wreath, £12.99 and the Red and White Tree Tin, £12.99.

Jacked Wine

Booze, duh?! Who doesn't love finding a little tipple in their stocking. I like finding something a bit different and my latest find is the new Jacked Wine (available at Tesco) as they come in super cool sounding flavours. I haven't tried them yet, they are currently en route to me, but I wanted to make sure I included them as they look and sound so fun. They are available in two flavours - Rosé with Lychee and Sauvignon Blanc with Ginger. Delicious! 

Alpha H Balancing Cleanser 

Another every day product, but the Alpha H Balancing Cleanser, £25 is the perfect thing to treat someone too. It's a great cleanser for normal, dry or sensitive skin (so perfect for me!) and it's seriously beautiful. 

Patterned Socks

Who doesn't want socks at Christmas?! These adorable ones from Mistral, £4.99 are super cute! 

Pantone Hip Flask

I adore this little hip flask. Pantone is perfect for Christmas gifting and actually have a whole range of products that would be perfect including mugs, notebooks and the super cute Pantone Hip Flask, £22 in their gorgeous pink shade is truly stunning. 

What Stocking Fillers are you lusting after this year?
