There’s nothing more exciting than waking up on Christmas morning to find a stocking filled with surprises just waiting to be discovered. From luxe beauty products and snugly accessories for her, to quirky gadgets and stylish knitwear for him, here’s our edit of stocking fillers – the little extras that make all the difference.

Often left to the very last moment, there is usually a tendency to panic and fill a loved one’s stocking with all sorts of random bits and bobs you threw in your basket on that last minute shopping dash. Instead of wasting your money on Christmas gifts that will lie dormant for years, make the stocking the most thrilling part of the day with carefully chosen gifts they’re sure to love.

For Her

Impress the lady in your life with well thought-out stocking fillers. If she’s a beauty queen, spoil her with pampering products, her signature scent or a luxe makeup palette or gift set that shows you’ve done your research. We recommend the best-selling Clarisonic cleansing system or Yves Saint Laurent touché éclat gift set – trust us on this one.  Accessories work perfectly for stockings and are sure to delight fashionistas – treat her to a sumptuously soft faux fur stole, a statement jewelled necklace or a luxurious pair of leather gloves. Choose gifts that appeal to her interests, for example, if she loves to cook and is a big fan of the Great British Bake Off, you can’t go wrong with one of Mary Berry’s popular cook books. And finally, for the lady who has everything, an exquisite lace lingerie set is sure to tick all the festive boxes.
