Christmas Shopping: Stocking Fillers

Now that we are in November, I feel like I can start talking about Christmas. It is my favourite time of the year and I always want to start talking about it in September, but it does drive my friends absolutely mad!

Stocking filler ideas by Patricia Bech
I love make up in my stocking and I am a big fan of Rimmel — Patricia Bech

I have been thinking about stocking fillers recently and thought I would share some ideas for girly stocking fillers (but for grown up girls!). Afterall, you never grow out of having a stocking!!

Make up

Make up is always a hit for girls. Whether it is a new lipgloss or some sparkly eyeshadow, this is one thing that won’t be a disappointment. Foundation is also a nice present and Rimmel help you match the skin tone.


Who doesn’t like waking up on Christmas Day with some extra chocolate to enjoy?! I actually start my day with chocolate on the 25th of December — it is the only time of the year when I feel it is ok to eat chocolate for breakfast!

Nail polish

I know everyone likes a manicure, but there is also something nice about doing your nails at home. A bright nail polish is also the perfect size for a stocking filler. Red is obviously the top colour for December!!


A winter candle is perfect at this time of year. Perhaps a travel sized one that will be small enough to squeeze into that stocking! I like the spicey scents at this time of year.

Earrings and a necklace

Gifts sets are a lovely present and lots of the shops on the high street sell nice necklaces and earrings. It is also great to have something new to wear for New Year’s Eve.
