Christmas Gift Guide – Stocking Fillers

Whenever it hits December, I justify spending heaps of money in the name of Christmas. Somehow shopping for others gives me even a bigger thrill than finding something I love. Stocking fillers is something we never really did back home, but that never stopped me from getting them for others. I’ve selected a few products that are just great when you want to add a little extra to your main gift, to keep for yourself or hang in your tree. Yay for stocking filler baubles!

Aromatherapy Associates must be the pioneers in terms of mixing beauty with Christmas tree decorations. I’m loving their Instant Inner Strength Rollerball which is just divine. It contains Clary Sage, Frankincense and Cardamom oils, which is a very relaxing blend and is a great extra to have in your handbag for stressful moments. The real showstopper is their Little Star, which houses their Bath & Shower Oil in Inner Strength. (note: yes, it’s a different oil than pictured). It’s become one of my fave scents, as it’s perfect to rewind from a long day and oh so nourishing for the body.

If you’re into stars, but want something different, the Eve Lom Kiss Mix Star may be something up your alley. Not only does it look very fancy (it’s the gold), the balm is amazing. It’s got a subtle minty scent and leaves a slight tingle on the lips, which I personally love. I’ve found this great as a lip primer as it nourishes my lips and makes any lip product stay on for the entire day/night.

Besides stocking fillers you can literally hang in your tree, HEMA has lovely nail polishes (go for classic red or their metallics range if you feel like a rebel), L’Occitane Hand Creams can do no wrong, Q&A a Day diaries are the cutest gifts, mini Yankee Candles would be appreciated in every stocking (my picks are Christmas Memories and Christmas Cookie) and BECCA Shimmer Skin Perfector Pressed if you really want to treat the other. I’ll be posting my Christmas gift guides for budget and ultimate luxury gifts over the week so hopefully there’ll be something for everyone!
