To me a stocking filler is anything that is a little bit of fun, quirky and really budget friendly. I’ve included inexpensive gifts within the Gift Guide for Him and the Gift Guide for Her which are more serious, nice and inexpensive these are just all jokey fun and all under £10.00. For further details, check out my MrLista list here. Although I have attempted to be gender neutral with the stocking stuffers, I’m not as good at this stuff for men so check out my ‘Gift Guide for Him’ if you would prefer a mainly male focus for gifts.
First up is for the coffee lover with Strong F**King Coffee, I just thought this was a bit fun and I have some friends that cannot live without strong coffee. So if you know a coffee lover and want a fun inexpensive list I think this would totally work, plus it’s a generous sizing although a jar of coffee would be cheaper this is a little bit more quirky. The person you may know may not be a tea or coffee person so there are plenty of Tea and Hot Chocolate gift sets, including ******, a hot drink in the winter months always warms you up and are perfect, plus you can give them something a little bit fancier than they would normally buy but you know they will use.
A bonus gift with these if you wish to spend a little bit more (or as a gift on their own) is buy a cute mug to go with them you can never have enough in my opinion and it’s something useful. Similarly you can pick up Twinning’s, Starbucks and Costa Gift Sets most are not on the list as they cost more than £10.00 but it is an all in one set.
Worse comes to worst buy a cute mug, or not so cute mug in this case.
In my ‘Gift Guide for Her’ (LINK) I mentioned buying cute stationary items, so I have added some into this post as well as they just build up a stocking in a cute way and I also think they would be great for kids gifts or stocking stuffers too. The Animal Highlighters from Paperchase are irresistible to me, I have had to resist them so many times as I have no need for highlighters in my day to day life. Things like small pretty notebooks (great for a handbag), stationary sets, and business card holders depending on what their job role involves.
CHOCOLATE! Chocolate is always a fool proof gift as everyone loves chocolate, it’s a little impersonal in some cases but it will always be well received. So I’ve collected a wide mix of chocolate gifts from fancy Truffles to Dairy Milk boxes and more Novelty Chocolate gifts. Chocolate comes in all shapes and sizes, so there is a chocolate filled gift for pretty much everyone.
Or if you really don’t know and cannot be bothered to think of a gift sites like Firebox do secret santa boxes wrapped in ‘crap wrap’. You pick box 1, 2 or 3 but god knows if there really are 3 different boxes or not as you nor the person receiving the gift will know what’s in which is all part of the fun really.
So be it Christmas on a budget or you are building a stocking hopefully you’ve liked this slightly different ideas that you can get your hands on. So thank you for looking at my gift guides, what are buying and hoping to receive this Christmas?
