Christmas Stocking Filler Gift Guide 2019
Over the last few months I’ve been sharing many Christmas gift suggestions to suit all budgets and today I’m going to be sharing my Christmas stocking filler gift guide with lots of amazing gift ideas all priced at £10 and under. You can never be too early when preparing for Christmas, so hopefully these stocking filler ideas will help you with this Christmas, or even next Christmas.
Christmas can be such an expensive time, but you don’t have to spend a fortune to get amazing gifts, and I’ve got some lovely gifts to share with you today so keep on reading…
Recipe for Men Raw Naturals Collection
If you have a man to buy for, I have a new brand to introduce to you which will be perfect for any stocking fillers you may need to buy this Christmas. Recipe for Men Raw Naturals are a new, unique Swedish grooming line with a distinct natural profile that runs through the entire product range, from manufacturing processes and key ingredients to conceptualisation and packaging design.The whole identity to the brand is based on local product, environmental awareness, and an experience of genuine small scale products, and is supposed to remind of a microbrewery for skincare – like the name suggests.
The brand has been optimised to be as natural as possible, yet at the same time meet the requirements on quality, safety and efficacy as Recipe for men stands for. The Recipe for Men Raw Naturals range is available to buy from Superdrug, and are priced between £7.99 and £14.99. I have three products from their range which would all make great stocking fillers this Christmas;
The Grease Free Face Cream – light formula provides advanced hydrating action without adding extra fat to your face, and gives gloomy, tired skin a nice energy kick.
Million Dollar Bronze Cream – this tinted moisturizer provides an instant fesh bronze glow to your face. It evens out skin tone while imparting a natural light
Money Styling Paste – a unique styling cream for both gutsy and polished medium to long hairstyles. The soft, elastic wax provides a flawless matte finish and a firm hold without stiffness.
Danilo Diaries and Calendars: BBC Earth Blue Planet 2020 Diary & Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker 2020 Diary
Diaries and calendars are always great gifts for Christmas as the new year approaches, and Danilo have an incredibly extensive range of 2020 diaries and calendars. They have every type of calendar you could think of such as family planners, desk calendars, wall calendars, framed calendars and activity calendars. If you know someone that is film obsessed, Danilo have lots of great calendars such as this Star Wars 2020 The Rise of Skywalker Calendar which I imagine will be on the Christmas lists of all Star Wars super fans with the new film launching. This calendar is £9.99 which I think is a pretty great price for a large, double page calendar that features characters from the new film.
I am slightly obsessed with diaries and love nothing more than starting a new fresh diary for the brand new year. I used to have big planners with stickers and customisation, but I am much more into slimline, lightweight diaries that don’t weigh like a brick in my handbag. I loved the look of the BBC Earth Blue Planet 2020 Diary £9.99 as it has such beautiful imagery on the cover, but also at the start of each month inside the calendar too. It’s an A5 diary but it gives you a generous amount of space for each day as well as month to view pages too which I swear by for planning my content for the month ahead. I’d really recommend checking out the Danilo website to see their huge range of diaries and calendars.
Bee Good Hand & Lip Treats Gift Set £10
If you read a lot of beauty blogs, there’s a big chance that you may have heard of the Bee Good brand. So who are Bee Good? Bee Good are an independent British skincare company based in rural Hampshire. They harness the potent properties of honey bee ingredients and expertly blend them with naturally active botanicals to create a range of gentle yet effective skincare for women and men of all ages and all skin types. The Bee Good Hand & Lip Treats Gift Set is just one of their festive offerings this year, and at just £10 it’s a brilliant buy for both existing Bee Good fans, or those that are completely new to the brand.
All of the Bee Good products have lovely packaging, but this set is so cute with a white hexagonal tube and purple sleeve, as well as a silver foil honeycomb design on the tube. The Bee Good Hand & Lip Treats set contains two full sized products which would normally cost you £13.75 to buy them both individually. So you are actually making a £3.75 saving when purchasing them as a duo within this set. Inside the set there’s the deliciously sounding Bee Good Lime Blossom & Honey Lip Balm 10ml and the Bee Good Honey & Crambe Daily Hand Cream 50ml. It’s such a cute set, and Bee Good products really are fantastic so this would make for a truly lovely gift.
Holy Lama Naturals Body Boon Gift Set £10
Do you have someone to buy for that likes more natural beauty products? If you do, I cannot recommend Holy Lama Naturals enough. Holy Lama Naturals have a number of gift sets available, and they’re all so reasonably priced too. The Holy Lama Naturals Body Boon caught my eye at just £10, and comes packaged inside a a handmade eco-friendly & sustainable travel case made with fallen and dried up coconut palm leaves. I love that the bag doesn’t come with plastic wrapping, the coconut palm leaf travel case is so sweet and the products inside are lovely too.
For £10 you get four miniature sizes of Holy Lama Naturals products which give you a goof introduction to the brand. Inside there are; the Lip Balm with Strawberry Extract 10g, Cleansing Shower Gel 30ml, Refreshing Body Lotion 30ml and Ayurvedic Yogi Soap 20g. These four products are four of their bestselling products, and I love that the little soap comes with a rustic little soap dish.
Christmas Dachshund Candle & Diffuser Set £9.99
Did you know that Cancer Research have their own online shop with a whole host of really well priced gifts? I had no idea, and they have some really lovely gifts. I was given the chance to choose a gift and I had to choose their Christmas Dachshund Candle & Diffuser Set as I absolutely love dachshunds, and I thought for £9.99 it was such a cute gift set. If you’re not into cute little sausages, they also have a pug version too.
My mum died in August after a fourteen year, long battle with cancer but we are so lucky she fought for as long as she did, as the life expectancy for her form of cancer was seven years. It was down to her incredible strength and developments in cancer research, so I’ll always support Cancer Research as a charity. By purchasing gifts from their gift shop, you’re helping to support their work too.
This gorgeous little gift set comes with a mini reed diffuser and two mini candles within a gift box. I had no idea what the scent would be as there’s no mention anywhere on their website, but oh my gosh it smells incredibly festive with a delicious gingerbread scent. I can’t believe how strongly scented the reed diffuser is in particular, it’s filled my bedroom and the candles have a decent throw too. Plus how adorable are the Christmas jumper wearing Dachshunds on the candles and diffuser?
Fiona Cairns Christmas Cakes and Sweet Treats
You seriously cannot go wrong with sweet treats for gifts all year round, and I was recently introduced to Fiona Cairns and their cakes are incredible. You may recognise the name as Fiona Cairns made the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding cake, and their cakes are available to purchase on their website and also in Waitrose. Fiona Cairns is a 35 year old bakery business that now employs about 100 bakers and cake decorators, and everything is made by hand using traditional fine quality ingredients.
Their Christmas range includes biscuits and cakes, and I would happily have one of everything. I was kindly given the chance to try the Fiona Cairns Poinsetta Fairy Cakes and the Christmas Cake in a Tin. The Fairy Cakes are £6.50 with six generously sized cupcakes in red foil cake cases, and delicate festive foliage icing decorations. They look so pretty, but taste even better with the lightest of sponges. I think £6.50 is so reasonable for such high quality cup cakes, and they have multiple different designs too.
The Christmas Cake in a Tin is £12 and comes presented in a pastel pink tin, and is five inches in size. No Christmas is complete without a traditional Christmas cake, and this fruit cake has the perfect texture in that it’s light and fruity, but not too sweet like many Christmas cakes can be. The top of the cake has a pretty shimmery snowflake design with a light layer of marzipan. The cake is a festive adaptation of their original Classic Fruit Cake that made Fiona Cairns such a successful name in the world of luxurious cakes. It also contains premium French culinary brandy for a real treat.
Bioré Witch Hazel Collection – Pore Clarifying Cooling Cleanser & Ultra Deep Cleansing Pore Strips
I don’t know about you, but I love to receive beauty treats inside my Christmas stocking, and I have the Bioré Witch Hazel to share with you today. Bioré are well known for their iconic pore strips, and the new Witch Hazel collection is exclusive to Boots. Witch hazel has been harnessed in skincare for thousands of years, thanks to its anti-inflammatory and skin healing properties. As a gentle astringent, it is believed to help purify and refresh skin, as well as minimise the appearance of pores.
The collection includes the Pore Clarifying Cooling Cleanser £5.99 and the Ultra Deep Cleansing Pore Strips £5.99. The cleanser has a refreshingly cool formula that works to deep clean the skin, by removing over 99% of blemish causing dirt and oil for a clarified complexion. It provides a gentle cooling sensation upon use, and contains both witch hazel and salicylic acid which work together to treat oily and congested pores, to reveal ultra clean skin that’s visibly revitalised.
The Ultra Cleansing Pore Strips contains four nose pore strips with proprietary Japanese technology so they work like a super-magnet to remove 2x more deep pore clogs to give you the deepest clean. The Ultra strips are designed to lock onto and remove deep-down dirt, oil and blackheads for the deepest clean in just 10-15 minutes. The festive period can be taxing on the skin with potential overindulging so this duo would be perfect for a post-Christmas skin detox, and they’re both under £6 which is even better.
Brisk Grooming Collection
Every Christmas, I like to choose a selection of grooming products to put in my other half’s Christmas stocking. I particularly like to gift products I know he’s never tried before, and Brisk is a brand available from Boots. I have three products to show you today from the Brisk grooming collection, and they’re all priced under £10 making them great affordable stocking filler gifts. Their products are divided into two categories; Skincare and Beard Care, and there are seven products in total.
First up we have the Brisk Beard Balm £5.45, which can be applied on its own or after you’ve applied their Beard Oil. It’s made from 100% natural ingredients including Hemp, Argan Oil, Jojoba Oil and superfood Cacao seed butter, BRISK Beard Balm is perfect for keeping your beard feeling soft and shaping its style. To go alongside the balm, I also suggest the Brisk Beard Oil in Citrus £6.99 and is made with 100% natural oils and vitamin E. It combines nourishing almond, avocado, argan and jojoba oils in a quick absorbing formula. Brisk have also added fresh and uplifting combination of grapefruit and lemon essential oils for a zesty fresh fragrance.
The third and final product I have to show you is the Brisk Beard & Face Wash in Citrus £6.99 and is specially formulated beard and face wash combines natural ingredients including grapefruit and lemon oils to cleanse and nourish your beard leaving it feeling fresh, soft and manageable with a zesty citrus scent. The branding is so bright and bold, and their Brisk Intense Beard Oil is even an award winner, after scooping a Pure Beauty Awards 2019 bronze award.
The Bluebeards Revenge Shaving Solution £9.99
The Bluebeards Revenge is a brand that specialises in barber grade grooming products, and I shared the The Bluebeards Reveng Deluxe Kit here on my blog last Christmas. Finding decent quality grooming products for the guys used to be such a mission, but now brands like The Bluebeards Revenge make it a lot easier for guys to find products for every step of their grooming routine. They launched in 2009 with a heavy-duty shaving cream to challenge the world’s toughest stubble, and the brand has gone from strength to strength ever since.
The brand’s grooming range is reasonably priced starting at just £3, and I chose The Bluebeards Revenge Shaving Solution to include within my gift guide as it sounds genius and it’s the kind of product that has been designed for men, but there’s no reason why women can’t use it too. It has a white gel-like consistency which as you massage it into the skin, it begins to lather up with foam without the need for a shaving brush.
The foaming action helps enhance razor glide for a close and slick shave. You only need one pump’s worth of product and is championed by barbers for its ability to improve edging and shaping on necklines, hairlines and beards. I used it for shaving my legs and it worked amazingly well, infact it works better than any women’s shaving gel or cream I’ve tried so it’d be a great stocking filler gift.
Chambord Raspberry Liqueur 20cl £8
I’ve always seen Chambord in stores but I’ve never tried it before, and to be honest I didn’t even know it was until very recently. It’s an infusion of the world’s finest raspberries and blackberries. These are blended with the exotic ﬂavors of black raspberry, black currant, Madagascan vanilla and Cognac. Chambord was inspired by a luxurious raspberry liqueur that, according to legend, was produced for French royalty to commemorate their visits to the Loire Valley in the 17th century.
The bottle is so ornate and fancy considering it’s under £10, and it’s the perfect accompaniment to your drinks cabinet this Christmas as you create so many amazing cocktails. Chambord have lots of fantastic recipes on their website, and I can’t wait to give them a try over the next couple of weeks. I particularly love the look of the Bramble and Punch Royal, but I can’t imagine how lovely it would be poured over ice with some lemonade or fruit flavoured sparkling water. Charmbord also offer this 20cl size in a gift box, which makes it an even prettier gift.
Satin Sleep Masks and Scrunchies eBay £1.89 & £3.29
I had to include two eBay bargains I bought which I feel would make great stocking fillers this Christmas, and they’re both under £5 and from UK eBay sellers which is even better. The satin sleep masks are only £1.89 and available in multiple pretty shades, with a nice wide elastic strap which feels super comfortable during sleep.
They feel amazing on the skin as they’re so soft, and for the price they’re really affordable too. I’ve totally seen the light when it comes to silk scrunchies so I’v been trying to find a budget satin alternative, and this set of six is only £3.29 and they stay put in my hair all day long.
Baileys Chocolate Collection
I was lucky enough to win an amazing Baileys Chocolate hamper in the very lovely Heather’s giveaway, so I knew I wanted to include a few of the treats as they would be such perfect stocking filler gifts. Lir Chocolate have collaborated with Baileys to create the most delicious range of chocolatey treats, and they’ve worked together for over 12 years to perfect the range. You can find them in most large supermarkets and stores, but they are incredibly giftable and it wouldn’t be Christmas without Baileys.
So they are my amazing Christmas stocking filler ideas. I really hope you enjoyed seeing this roundup, and it’s given you some inspiration.
