Stocking filler ideas

Because you're never too old for a good Christmas stocking

It doesn’t matter how big or sensible you grow up to be, a stocking stuffed with surprises always sparkles with magic. Whether you’re suited and booted for the 9 to 5 or just trying to figure out this whole “adult” thing – throw a stocking our way and we become big kids. They don’t have to be flashy or cost a fortune. In fact, they’re better when they’re not. Revive old traditions and invent new ones, like that time mom wrapped them in recycled newspaper (brilliant idea). It’s the little things that count, so rekindle the real magic of Christmas with small surprises, handpicked with care. If you’re stuck for stocking filler ideas, we’ve rounded up some cracking treats for the whole family – whether you want to save, splash out or splurge – from vegan beauty gifts to grooming kits. Get ready to knock their socks off.

Little gifts for everyone

Whoever you’re buying for and however big your budget, these smaller surprises are sure to put a big smile on their face. Beautifully boxed mini bath treats and hand cream selections are packed with TLC the whole family can enjoy, or introduce them to a new favorite with our Limited Edition body care duos. So, show a whole lot of love to your Secret Santa or send a thoughtful thank you to someone who’s been a star with our purse-friendly presents and luxurious little pampering bits. Here’s our pick of the bunch from this year’s line-up…

Skincare stocking fillers

We all love a good skin day, but in winter, we might need a teeny helping hand to get there. Skincare is the superhero of stocking fillers – even a small pressie can pack a huge pick-me-up. Not only is it something many of us love to use every single day, but finding small moments to give yourself a boost is an important part of self-care, whether it’s kicking back with a face mask or making time for a proper cleanse and tone. Our fantastically festive skincare sets are here to help their skin sing.
