Stocking fillers are always my favourite gifts to buy at Christmas. They take a little extra planning, more shop browsing but can be the most charming and thoughtful gifts to unwrap on Christmas morning. It’s a great way to show how well you know someone, with an assortment of little gifts that you’ve been gathering over the last few months.
There was always a huge amount of joy peeking from underneath my duvet as a child, studying the sparkling tiaras and glittering wands sticking out of the sack at the end of my bed. It was always a monumental effort dragging it into my parents room, but inside was pure Christmas magic!
Even today I still get a stocking, albeit a rather more concise and less glittery one. It’s filled with little luxuries, top-ups of my favourite products and always a bag of gold coins and a chocolate Santa that barely survive the morning.
I always love creating hampers for loved ones at Christmas, and stockings can be another way to bundle some themed, but thoughtful gifts together. Imagine a gin themed stocking filled with pretty glasses, mini gins, the obligatory Fever Tree and a selection of garnishes! Or perhaps everything a budding baker needs to make some festive treats; hand written recipes, mason jars of pre-weighed ingredients and adorable cookie cutters. No matter what the budget, or the person in mind, stockings are incredibly enjoyable to receive and of course to give.
Here are some of my favourite luxury stocking fillers of 2017 to get you inspired!
