As we’re right in the peak of the hectic Christmas rush, coming up with stocking fillers might be the last thing on your ‘to-do’ list. For this reason it can often prove to be the most difficult task. After you’ve endeavoured to come up with present ideas, you might be left feeling a little bit uninspired when it comes to filling stockings with little, thoughtful extras for everyone in the family! Here’s a great guide on choosing something for everyone in the family.
For the Kids
Remember the digital pets craze back in the 90’s? They’re currently trending, so pop one of these virtual companions into your children’s stocking filler — it’s bound to keep them busy from Christmas Day and beyond! Another brilliant classic revival is the slinky, a huge 300 million have been sold since the product launched over 60 years ago, share it with a new generation this Christmas!
Are you trying to encourage healthy habits in the new year? Pop one of these personalised water bottles into the stocking. Make sipping on water more appealing by adding your little one’s names and some of the delightful designs onto the bottle!
One great little extra for this year’s stockings are these smart mini Bluetooth speakers. Simply stick it in your bathroom and make shower time fun again!
Kids will also love these crafty jewellery making kits, letting their creative side out and designing their own quirky necklaces.
For your Dad
Whether dad is working, golfing, or ferrying the rest of the family around, your dad is probably on the go. So, getting a KeepCup for the man that never stops could be a brilliant idea! KeepCups are a great, eco-friendly solution for enjoying hot drinks on the go made using tempered glass. Order your savvy stocking filler online at KeepCup and choose a design or colour combination that best suits his style — classic black looks great, combined with a cork band. They limit the need to use single-use products, so all he’ll need to do is simply fill it with his coffee in the morning and take on the day!
A bamboo razor by Bulldog is worth buying – another great little addition to any dad’s stocking and is a great eco-friendly essential! Simply pick up a fluffy face cloth and you’ve got a brilliant little grooming kit sorted in his stocking.
Novelty gifts are the ones which provide the most entertainment, and if your dad is prone to loosing his keys then add a key finder into his stocking this year and add it to his keychain — man’s best friend will have a new definition, as if he’s lost his keys, all he needs to do is whistle and the device will beep. Or, how about some light up Christmas socks to truly get him in festive spirits? Never mind the turkey, these socks will be the true centrepiece!
For your Mum
A great way to tackle Mum’s stocking is to fill it with essentials. You could start by picking up a new bobble hat, ready for her to wear on your pre-lunch Christmas day walk. It’ll likely be cold out too, so a miniature hand cream will be a handbag essential. Pop one of these coconut-scented minis from The Body Shop into your mum’s stocking on Christmas Eve.
As your mum is probably the helm of organisation in the household, a pocket sized 2020 diary could be ideal for her pencilling in all of the important dates for the new year!
Your mum is probably always handing her handbag essentials out to the rest of the family. From hairbrushes to a windproof umbrella, they’re likely to be borrowed and never seen again. Add one of Fulton Umbrellas’ compact brollies to her stocking this year, in one of the stunning prints that you know she’ll love.
Try buying a Tangle Teezer – this is another great everyday essential that she’s bound to appreciate, plus they come in a wide range of colours and prints to suit her style.
