I think stocking fillers and small pressies are my favourite to buy as they aren’t SO expensive perhaps as a ‘main’ present and I just find them so much more fun! I love the fact that brands are bringing out really cute stocking filler/small present packaging and we’ve also seen a lot of products as tree ornaments this year which I think is such a great idea!
I often prefer to get friends a few smaller presents rather than just one big one, is that just me?! I also feel like if you go wrong with one it’s not such a big deal or too much of an expensive mistake. I always used to be the most excited about the small stocking presents when I was little too so maybe it stems from that too but I just love a stocking filler!!
Here I have hand-picked a selection of some of the best beauty of this year (in my opinion!) ; a lot of them aren’t specific ‘Christmas’ sets or collections with, just smaller things that I think work really well as a gift. Prices ranging from £8 to £40 so hopefully you should be able to find something that works within your budget.
Tropic Little Cracker of Joy (£24) This oversized cracker contains 3 pots of indulgent lip butterbalms. Limited edition seasonal flavours including Almond Matcha Latte, Coffee Hazlenut Latte and White Chocolate Coconut Latte
Space Masks (£15 for 5) A perfect pressie for that person who has trouble unwinding and sleeping. These are single-use, self-heating eye masks that help to really relax and soothe you. Infused with soft Jasmin, it is the perfect aid to use in the evenings, in the bath or pre-bed.
By Terry Baume de Rose (£40) I think I have included this in every stocking filler gift guide I’ve EVER done! It’s such a cute present for anyone who is into their beauty. It’s a cult lip-balm, it’s always all over the beauty mags and it’s just a really lovely luxurious pot of indulgent rose lip balm/
PIXI Multi-Toning Gift Set (£20) We all know and love the PIXI glow tonic and this cute AF set comes with a 40ml size of that along with the Milky Tonic (hydrating and soothing) and the Retinol tonic (smoothing and protective). A perfect set for anyone and everyone!
BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Mini Celebration Ornament (£16) A small 2.4g of BECCA;s best-selling highlighter in shade C-pop. Super cute and I think this is one of my favourite pick out of my stocking fillers that I would love to receive.
FOREO Luna Play (£29) These are super handy as a try-before-you-buy the larger, more expensive FOREO cleansing devices which are all over £100. This will give you a month of once-a-day useage to see how it gets on with yours skin.
Soap and Glory Ultra Smoothing Lip Oil (£8) A handy little gloss/ lip ol hybrid that come in a little squeezey tube for easy on-the-go application. I love the pink tinted one, but they also do clear if you prefer.
Too Faced Mini Gingerbread Palette (£22) A demi-size of their bests-selling Gingerbread palette. This contains 8 beautiful shades including hot pink, orange, taupey new, gold shimmer and burgundy. Seasonal colours and a great price.
Alpha H Liquid Gold Ornament (£13.50) A 30ml size of the cult-beauty-product Liquid Gold that comes in a tree decoration style box – cute AF.
Shay and Blue Amber Rose 10ml (£25) I absolutely love this scent and the small 10ml size makes it perfect for a scent-sational (sorry) stocking filler.
Axiology Lip-to-Lid Balmies (£29) A brand that I have discovered just this year and I love everything about them! They make completely natural lipsticks and these balmies are completely waste-free, housed in paper and recycled and recyclable boxes. Ethical and fabulous. The texture of these balms make them perfect for multi-use and they can all be used on the eyes, lips and cheeks.
Urban Decay Lash Freak Mascara (£21) One of the biggest mascara launches of the year with one of the most unusual wands we have EVER seen! It legit looks like a dragon’s head (check my full review here). However, I think it’s a really good mascara and could make a great stocking filler for a makeup junkie.
L’Occitane Festive Hand Cream Trio (£21) Always a very easy thing to gift : the humble hand cream AND L’Occitane are pretty known for their incredible hand creams. Here you get 3 x 30ml handbag sizes in a cute tin and it’s a really great price too. Also : you get a tin! This is always something I keep for storage and nik naks so a kind of extra bonus?!
PIXI Let’s Glow Gift Set (£20) Another gorgeous set from skincare favourites PIXI. This is for anyone who loves the glow, brightening and radiance. Contains a 40ml Glow Tonic, a 15ml Glow Mud Cleanser, a 15ml Glow Mud mask and a travel pack of the Glow Tonic cleansing cloths for removing makeup.
Becca Light up the Party Kit (£35) This is SUCH an incredible set and an AMAZING saving. This is worth over £82 (!) and contains a full-size Backlight Priming Filter, a full-size Shimmering Skin Perfector Highlighter in C-Pop, a full sized Light Gleam Primer & Topper Liquid Eyeshadow in ‘Lunar’ and a mini Becca Ignite liquid highlighter. A really lovely selection of products and perfect if you love the glow and shimmer like myself.
L’Occitane Verbena Verveine Manderine Hand Cream (£16.50) A zesty mandarin woody scented hand cream from our favourites, L’Occitane. A great size for the handbag and this is such a pretty scent and very seasonal.
