Stocking Filler Gift Guide For Her Part 1 || Blogmas Day 6

Buying presents for people for Christmas has got to be one of the hardest things ever because it's so difficult to know you're not buying something the person already has or something they don't like. Therefore I have tried to compile a wide variety of things for different ages, that are of different prices and for different types of people. Hopefully whether you're hunting for that perfect Secret Santa present or some stocking fillers or even just a little extra present to buy a special girl in your life then you'll find something here that will suit.

The first ideal stocking filler for most girls is a book, I chose Gone Girl because this film has been so popular and I know a lot of people have been left wanting to read the book. However, try to personalise it as much as you can, if your sister, mum, girlfriend, friend likes baking then buy a book about that or if they like animals then buy a book based on that. It's always nice to know that someone has thought about the gift they are giving you by giving you something that they know you're interested in. Obviously this is only ideal if the girl you're buying a present for reads books but if she doens't you could adapt this and buy a coffee table book instead.

Another ideal stocking filler that I know I would be over the moon to receive in my stocking this year is any of the MakeUp Revolution products. They have amazing makeup that is both good quality and super affordable, you can get lipsticks from a pound and 32 eyeshadow palettes for £8. For any makeup junkie or even just a girl who likes to wear a bit of simple makeup now and again you need to get them this for under the tree.


 Another one for the girls into their beauty or pampering is the Crabtree & Evelyn seasonal polishes. I think these have been released especially for Christmas which means it's unlikely that the person you're buying these for is going to have seen them and bought them yet. They do a pretty red shade too but these ones are my favourite, a metallic gold and a metallic silver. I actually have the silver shade on just now and I'm feeling very Christmassy with my pretty nails!

Another beauty must have for girls this Christmas is the Tanya Burr lipglosses. I've heard mixed opinions on these but I stand by the fact that the shades 'Afternoon Tea', 'Picnic In The Park' and 'Aurora' are good'uns. They're also pretty natural shades too so most girls will like them and suit them regardless of whether they're massively into beauty or Tanya Burr. Tanya has also released some pretty gift sets and new lipgloss shades especially for Christmas but because I haven't tried them I didn't want to recommend those ones.

Crabtree also do the best most moisturising hand cream around so if you know someone who likes a good pamper or even an older person I think they would really appreciate this gift. They do have some gorgeous Christmas scents released for Christmas too and I know I'll definitely be picking up a few of these for my mum and gran!


For the younger girls my reccomendation is a So gift set like this So Kiss me set. They are so affordable to buy and also look much more expensive because of how much you get for your money. This one contains a perfume and a body lotion but there are ones that contain a lipstick in them too which would be great for someone starting out in beauty. This would be good if there was a secret Santa at school too or at brownies/girl guides etc.

 When I saw these in Primark I just had to pick them up because they're so Christmassy and cute. Apologies about the dog hairs on them, as I was photographing these Luca decided he would have a nap on them... Anyway's I love gingerbread men and I have the gingerbread jumper from Topshop and I also have gingerbread socks so you know what I'll be wearing this Christmas! I also think these would make a fab stocking filler so that the person can wear them on Christmas day or boxing day. In our family we usually dress up for Christmas and then wear a Christmas jumper/leggings for boxing day. These only cost £8 too so are a great cost effective gift!

This could also count as a main present but because you can get affordable ones too I included it in the stocking filler. Statement necklaces are a must all year round, they totally complete an outfit and add some glitz to it. I think a clear jeweled statement necklace that isn't too big would make an ideal stocking filler for any girl because it could easily be incorporated into any outfit. I got this one from Marks & Spencers earlier on in the year but there are loads of fab sites for statement necklaces!

Something my parents always include in my stocking is a pair of cosy pj's and I think they're a great present for every girl because lets face it all girls wear pj's either to bed or for lounging around in. Primark do the best cosy jammies and because it's Primark they're reasonably priced too so definitely worth looking into.

Cosy slipper socks or fluffy socks are another one of Primark's finest Christmas items. They keep your feet so warm that in the Winter months these are essential. I actually wear these all year round in my house to keep my feet warm though. They only cost £2/£3 too so they're great as an add on present or if you just want to give someone a Christmas surprise.

I actually got this for my birthday from my parents but I think it would make the most beautiful Christmas present. It's a heart shaped frame with frames inside to put multiple photo's in. I really need to get round to filling this up which is what I plan to do once university finishes for Christmas. I'm not sure where they got it from but both Tkmaxx/HomeSense and The Range both do really nice photo frames which would make the perfect Christmas present. If you wanted to add an extra special touch you could always fill it in with photos of you and the person or photos you know the person would like. It's the personal gifts like this that are the best because time and thoughts are more precious than money.

The last thing I have included in my stocking filler for her gift guide is a Lush product or gift set depending on how your budget is set. This one is Drummers Drumming which is one of Lushes specific Christmas releases but there are so many different ones on offer ranging in both scent and price. There really is something for everyone and if the girl you're buying for doesn't have a bath then there's always soaps, shower jellies and shower gel!

There is actually a part two to this gift guide because after I had photographed it all I found a few more things that would make great stocking fillers and also felt it was a bit much for one post so stay tuned for that!

Lots of Love,
