Stocking fillers for Women

It's the festive season which means lots of Christmas shopping. I've finally started but I still have so many things to buy. If you're stuck for ideas for people then keep checking back to my blog as i'll be publishing lots of gift guides. 

First up are my stocking fillers for women:

1) Candle - Yankee Candle*
I always burn candles at home and my brand of choice are Yankee Candle. They have some fab festive scents out at the moment. I can't get enough of 'Christmas Magic'. It smells incredible. Others include crackling wood fire, holiday sage and the perfect tree to name a few.
I actually have a really big stocking (of course) so mine would hold a full sized candle. For those that have a smaller stocking you could think about getting the tea lights or smaller sized candles. 

2) Book
Books are a great thing to pop in a stocking (plus they take up quite a bit of room). There are two books I am hoping for this Christmas (or hopefully before so I can read them on our long haul flight) and they are Some Kind of Wonderful by Giovanna Fletcher and The Book of Dust by Philip Pullman.

3) A Diary - Busy B*
Everyone needs a diary and December is the perfect time of year to get one. The Busy B range is always lovely. They have fantastic prints. The Day a Page Diary has plenty of space to fill in meetings, appointments etc. It's soft and not too heavy which is ideal for a handbag.

4) A Phone Case
I adore phone cases. There are so many to choose from these days that you could have a different one every week. I am obsessed with the range at Skinny Dip. They have the cutest festive Starbucks ones and also some amazing bright vibrant cases.They are the ideal size for a Christmas stocking.

5) Satin Hair 7 - Braun*
The Braun Satin Hair 7 is the perfect sized stocking filler. The unique hairbrush has active ions which help to reduce frizz and leave hair shiny. This also comes with batteries so it's good to go from the minute it is opened. 

6) Make up Brushes - Spectrum
You can get individual brushes or a set of brushes. If you are around the same age as me (32) then you will remember an iconic film from your teen hood...Mean Girls. Well the awesome people over at Spectrum have created a Mean Girls brush collection. I have had my eye on them for ages so I am really hoping Santa leaves them in my stocking. They have a fetch collection and even a burn book!!

7) Instant Facelift - Skin Doctors
You'll have to be careful with this one as it may offend some people but at my age and my paranoia every time I watch my youtube or instagram stories, I would love to receive this gift. The instant facelift by Skin Doctors is designed to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It immediately tightens and smooths the skin within 5 minutes of application. It can also be used as a make up primer. It comes in 30ml so is a great size for stuffing into the bottom of a stocking.

8) Tea - T2
I drink tea far too much so I always love receiving speciality tea's. I was first introduced to T2 many years ago when visiting my family in Australia. It's a fantastic shop. To my amazement I then spotted a store in London years later. You can also shop online. They do so many different tea's and they have a gorgeous range of teapots. The boxes or tins are small enough for stocking gifts.

9) Perfume - Charlotte Tilbury*
Perfume is always a great gift and the perfect size for a stocking filler. There are so many to choose from these days but I was recently gifted with the Charlotte Tilbury - Scent of A Dream perfume which is incredibly unique. Perfume can attract others and is known to change the energy frequency of the people around you which is the key to attraction. This was put to place when they created the perfume adding various notes such as saffron, mandarin, orange flower, magnolia, amber etc to attract love, light, power, positivity, and sex to the wearer.  The scent is very strong and powerful but I find the scent changes after different time periods when on my skin, which is a good thing. I also love the shape of the bottle.

10) Make Up - Too Faced Hangover 3 in 1
Make up fits very neatly into a stocking and you're spoiled for choice with what is on offer. If you read my October Beauty Faves post then you'll know I am obsessed with Too Faced - Hangover 3 in 1. This is a great addition to anyone's make up collection. It is a primer and finishing spray which works really well. It's been one of my favourite buys this year.

11) Hairbrush - Tangle Angel*
If you know someone who suffers with tangles in their hair then this brush is perfect for them. My daughter's both have one of their own and I regularly use them especially after swimming or coming our of the shower. The Tangle Angel can be used on all hair types and is heat resistant, anti static, water resistant and antibacterial. 

12) Bottle Opener - Zap Cap*
This gift is suitable for both men and women. I always struggle to get the tops of bottles of beer and lager etc and this clever, little device by CellarDine does it for you in one push. That'll save time during the celebrations on Christmas day and New Years Eve.

Do you have any of these? What are your favourites from the list? 

*Items marked with an asterisk were gifted to me to include in this guide. All others are my own ideas


  1. I am a very hard lady to please, especially where presents are concerned, but I would be happy to find any one (or three) of these in my stocking! Would particularly love a new phone case like that gorgeous pink flamingo!

  2. I never expected to spot so many things I'd like in this and I pretty much want them all. Think I'll be signposting Santa this way!!

  3. Loving your choices. I do love Yankee candles too. Every year I tell myself that I'm going to get one stocking each for my husband and I. At the moment, it's only T who has one. And yes, I've forgotten all about it again.

  4. I always adore a yankee candle and books are my addiction - Philip Pullman is a particular favourite so I must look this book up

  5. Oo so many amazing ideas - I need the detangling brush in my (and my daughter's) life :)

  6. I've asked for a travel journal this year and hope I find one in my stocking. I love Yankee candles... always a good choice for a stocking filler.

  7. Such a great list with a lot of beautiful presents. I love Yankee Candles and that flamingo phone case is amazing :)

  8. I am hoping for a yankee candle and some perfume this year

  9. Oh my god I love that flamingo phone case! And Yankee candles are massive right now, aren't they?

  10. You've got so many goodies here - if I had to choose just one I'd chose a Yankee Candle! Love them!

  11. The Yankee candle and the books would suit me just fine!

  12. Great selection of stocking fillers. I love the sound of the skin Doctors facelift. My mum would probably love one too.
