Christmas Gift Guide 2018: Secret Santa & Stocking Fillers

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14

1.) Tile

This is SO clever – you can attach it to your key ring, or your child’s very favourite toy and neither will ever be lost in the house again – once you’re within a 100-foot bluetooth signal, the tile will start to sing at you and as you get closer the signal will get stronger. Nifty little gadget!

2.) A Notebook

BECAUSE EVERYONE LOVES STATIONARY! (even if they only use it for 1.2 months before it gets forgotten – which is why I recommend a lined notebook, rather than a 2019 calendar, or one like this where it’s short and sweet daily accounts)

3.) Hair Accessory

Hair ties, hair bobbles, clips, grips, sectioning clips – the choices are endless!! Make it personal and get the ones that will actually match their hair colour. The days of us blondes using the brown ones are long gone and you wouldn’t gift the blonde ones to a brunette either would you? (for a red head, think tones, if they’re more Strawberry Blonde, go with the blonde bobby pins and if they’re more Auburn, grab a packet of the light brown ones and you’ll be golden!)

4.) Hair Product

What’s their fave hair product? Why not get them it – I always say – it’s best to gift 1 thing you know they’ll actually love and use, rather than a bunch of little fiddly nothings that will end up at the back of a drawer.

5.) Old and Wise Duck

For the person in your life who is the same age as you, but act like their 90 years old already, this is a good joke gift for them. P.S. Yes I am this person in my friend group, you know me so well!

6.) Sweeties

Sure lookit, it wouldn’t be a stocking if there weren’t a few sweeties in there now would it? – my faves are Jelly tots and Fruit Pastilles (because my taste buds didn’t evolve past the age of 8 apparently!)

7.) Face Mask

This highly publicised, hugely sought after mask has rave reviews, I haven’t used it myself so can’t give a personal recommendation, but if your friend or loved one is a beauty fanatic there’s no doubt in my mind that they’ll be wanting to try this out, so it’s worth your consideration – and ALL those reviews can’t be wrong right?!?

8.) Jewellery

I know a certain lady who would go bananas for this ring, if your friend is a bee lover – maybe they’re from Manchester where the bee is their symbol – then this needs to be in their stocking this year

9.) Office Ornament (DIY)

I don’t know who wouldn’t love making this and then having it in their office – it’s fun, it’s quirky and it’s a chic reminder that we all get to be kids and have fun – even when we’re grown up!

10.) Funky Socks

Himself LOVES this brand – he’s getting quite a name for himself in work I hear – a dapper suit, with flashy socks, that’s my Husband!

11.) Kitchen Kitsch

If I was one of those people who hung plates on the wall of their kitchen, I’d be asking for this plate, I just love the whole aesthetic!

12.) Kitchenware

Himself and I aren’t really ones for egg cups – we’re a poached egg kind of house! But for those of you who know “Egg and Soldier” devotees, this could be a great option!

13.) Bath & Shower Oil

These are such a great treat for the bath and shower – each and every one smell gorgeous! My favourite is “Relax Mind”

14.) Favourite Make Up In Miniature

So you’re on a strict budget, perhaps you’ve got someone in your friend circle’s Secret Santa, think about what make up they love and see if the brand do miniatures, I am loving all of these this year, especially with their Christmas tree ornament packaging – so festive! Also check out Boots for other brands travel size options, they have lots of good stuff!

      Me neither Dorie – I did one last year which was super fun though and I’m sure another will come up in the future!
