Christmas Gift Guide: Stocking Fillers under £10.00

With it being a month today until Christmas day I thought I'd better make a start on my Christmas shopping. I try to avoid going when it's really busy (though I'll never be one of these "I finished my shopping in July" organised types!) I love to go and look round the shops to get some inspiration about what to buy people on my list. There's so many great gifts you can find for under £10.00 which are ideal if you're on a budget or maybe taking part in a Secret Santa. Here's a selection of some of the best I've found to hopefully help you out if you're stuck for ideas on what to buy..

Christmas Gift Guide 2015: Stocking Fillers under £10.00

1. Light Brown Cardholder - River Island - £8.00
2. Beaded Necklace - Primark - £4.00
3. Lip Bullet Duo - Topshop - £10.00
4. Build Your Own Gingerbread House - Tiger - £3.00
5. Wake Up And Smell The Coffee Mug - Sass & Belle - £6.50

I can't visit Topshop at Oxford Circus without making a beeline for the beauty department. I especially love their lip colours, they're such great quality for the price. This set of 2 lip bullets would make a lovely gift. 'Get Me Bodied' is a rich matte plum which is perfect for the season and 'Cherry Tree' is a classic red shade. I've always wanted to make my own Gingerbread House but I've been put off by how difficult it looks! This set from Tiger comes ready to assemble and includes a bag of sweets to decorate. It'd be a fun activity for all ages to do over the Christmas holidays.

6. Penguin Eye Mask - Paperchase - £6.00
7. Starbucks Dusting Set - Boots - £10.00
8. Soap & Glory Irresistibubble Gift Set - Boots - £5.00
9. Recipe Tin - Dot Com Gift Shop - £9.95
10. Pocket Guide to Wine Book - John Lewis - £7.99

I try to resist looking at all the gifts whilst waiting in the Starbucks queue for fear of leaving the store not only with my latte but 4 gift mugs and a travel cup too! This dusting set looks like it would make a great gift for coffee lovers. It contains coco sprinkles in cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and chocolate so you can add flavours to your coffee all year round. My favourite Soap & Glory scent has to be sugar crush. It has a sweet lime fragrance that smells amazing. The Irresistibubble gift set is great value at just £5.00 for a mini sugar crush body wash and body buttercream.

11. Foldaway Tote Bag - Paperchase - £4.50
12. Frosted Plum Hand Cream - The Body Shop - £4.00
13. Stationery Set - Primark - £5.00
14. Kiehl's Facial Fuel No-Shine Lip Balm - Selfridges - £8.00
15. Liberty Chocolate Coin - Liberty - £3.95

Since the plastic bag charge came into effect in England and Wales recently I always try to make sure I pop a foldaway bag into my handbag before I leave the house to save ending up buying yet more carrier bags. I've bought a couple of the foldaway tote's from Paperchase. There's so many designs to choose from and they easily fold away back into the pouch. I like to include similar things in a stocking for a man (there's so many beauty bits for women) and try to find a find a few beauty and grooming gifts to pop in. I know a few guys who are fans of the Kiehl's Facial Fuel skincare range and I'm sure their no-shine lip balm would make a welcomed gift during these colder months to prevent chapped lips. It's the law to have a bit of chocolate in your stocking, right?! I went for a look around the Christmas shop in Liberty a couple of weeks ago and their chocolate coins are truly giant! They feature a picture of their iconic London store. They'd make a lovely gift for any Liberty fans, and chocolate fans too!

Have you started your Christmas shopping yet? 



  1. Some lovely ideas here- I don't have any ladies to buy for except my mum, who normally asks for something insanely specific, but I definitely would like some of these bits myself!
