Stocking Fillers Gift Guide 2017

Sunday, October 08, 2017
It's almost that time of the year again where gift guides are starting, or at least I'm starting my gift guide series! I love writing gift ideas and gift guide posts so I love this time of the year and I get to share lots of gorgeous, cute and unique gifts with you. Hopefully you'll get some great gift ideas from these posts!

*Helen Russell Penguin Mug (£12.50)
Let's start with one of the cutest gifts in this post and it's an adorable penguin mug from Helen Russell Creations. My mum is one of those people who love penguins and by that I mean she has lots of penguin themed products all over the house but the only item she doesn't have is a penguin mug. I adore the design of this mug as it's incredibly cute although it's very minimal. It came in a cute gift box and I think it would make a lovely gift for any penguin lovers out there! There are many other items to choose from within this penguin range and everything is so cute - I'd highly recommend!
*Wild Olive Cocoa Butter Bath Melts via Prezzybox (£5.99)
I have tried a couple of products from Wild Olive previously and loved them so I knew this set would be lovely! I adore the packaging as it looks like a little cupcake and the bath melts smell incredible. I have the lavender and geranium bath melts, they have the most gorgeous scent and they look really cute. All of their products are handmade in the Peak District which is great as I love supporting smaller UK businesses. There are lots of sets and products to choose from, I cannot recommend their handmade soaps, bath melts and candles enough.
*Cheerz Copacabana Box Of Magnets (from £10)
I think personalised gifts are some of the best that you can give as they are more meaningful and usually more surprising! I think photograph gifts are wonderful and they always go down really well with my friends and family. Cheerz create photograph magnets which I think is a great idea as not only are they practical but they are thoughtful too and they come well presented.

I created a few photograph magnets from our recent trip to Norway as not only are they great memories but Norway was definitely one of the most break taking, wonderful and picturesque places I've ever visited. The magnets are fantastic, the photos came out really clear and they're a great size too. Using the following code you can get 10% off your order with Cheerz: CRTW86. 
*Bakerdays Christmas Chalkboard Cake (£15.99) - Chocolate Chip
Now onto a delicious stocking filler gift idea and it's a yummy chocolate chip cake from the lovely people over at Bakerdays. I've featured one of their cakes on my blog previously so I was excited to receive another as they are lovely gifts, well presented and really uniquely designed. Additionally they can be personalised with names and also photographs.

I chose the chocolate chip cake but there are other options available such as lemon drizzle (which I've tried and I loved it), rich chocolate chip, gluten free and dairy free sponges, traditional sponge and a half and half cake too. The chocolate chip option is my favourite, why wouldn't it be! The cake tin is great too and it can be re-used. I cannot recommend Bakerdays letterbox cakes enough!
*Beauty Feet Socks (£4.99)
As well as personalised gifts, I think that self care gifts are really important too. Pampering gifts might be viewed as easy or safe gifts but I think they are some of the best gifts to give as it allows the recipient an excuse to look after themselves! One item that would be perfect within a self care hamper to give to someone special this Christmas are moisturising socks.

These socks are a little unusual as within the fabric of the heel, there is a pad which contains moisturising ingredients, Chinese herbs and nano-silver. I've been using them for a few days and while they don't look very all, they do work so well without any effort. They seem very unassuming but they are well worth a try!
*Melody Maison White Voltive Candles (£5.99 - SALE)
Candles are a perfect gift for autumn and winter as they make any home look and feel very cosy, warm and inviting as well as smelling lovely. This set of candles comes gift boxed so it would aesthetically make a great Christmas or even wedding gift. They are orange blossom scented and to me the scent is very subtle, floral and clean scent but bear in mind that it is very minimal so they would be ideal for someone who doesn't like strongly scented candles. Melody Maison have a wide range of gorgeous homeware and gifts to choose from.
*Pocket Microscope via Prezzybox (£7.99)
The final gift idea is more unusual but very interesting stocking filler gift idea as it's a pocket microscope. I think this would be great stocking filler for children over six or seven or even for teens and adults! It can magnify items up to 30x so you'll be able to see items and objects within fine detail. It seems very easy to use, it is inexpensive and it's a more interactive Christmas gift. The only thing I'd say against it is that it isn't pocket sized, it's huge but I think it would still make a great, interactive stocking filler for various ages.

Have you bought any Christmas presents yet? What do you think of these stocking filler gift ideas? 


  1. What a great roundup of products! The penguin mugs are adorable! Xx

  2. Is it bad I want to buy these for myself rather than other people!? The penguin mug is soo adorable!! That cake sounds really cool aswell but I think I'd just have to go for the rich chocolate chip as I'm a proper sucker for really chocolatey things! And I'd deffo love those cocoa butter bath melts, especially love that they're hand made!
