Hello my festive friends,
Well its officially 9 sleeps until Christmas which means there's only about 7 serious days to squeeze in some last minute shopping. eeeek. I don't know about you but I start thinking about it quite early in the year. I generally start buying the odd thing around November but this gives me a false sense of security where I think I've done more that I actually have! So around this time ever year I whip out the wrapping paper and sit down to wrap the many, many....many? presents that I realise at this stage, I don't have!
In that vain I've popped together a quick list of stocking fillers, secret santa gifts and stuff that's just generally fun for under £20 (if you've not handled 'the main present' then I'm afraid you're on your own!)
Lets start with a corker! This epic tote bag by Ellie Ellie makes me chuckle every time I see it! There's more of these beauties too including 'Gym? I thought you said Gin'. All these laughs for £15. Just. So. Fun.
How about a cheeky Secret Santa present of some Curry and Chips Chocolate?! Might Fine Chocolate offer just that for £3.95.
One for the boys and girls who enjoy a nice tipple. Becky Broome has a fantastic selection of personalised glasses (and heaps of other lovely things!) these tumblers are £20 each.
Can you ever go wrong with a lavender bag?! Perfect thoughtful little gifts that not only look adorable but smell heavenly! Grace and Favour Home have a beautiful collection of lavender bags for £4.50 and other hand made goodies that are perfect for Christmas.
One of my favourite small businesses is The Cutlery Commission, the incredible selection of personalised cutlery is whimsical and memorable. Theres gifts for all the family (including the dog) but here i've opted for a Christmas bargain that would be used year after year. In the sale at just £11 is the 'Christmas Table Spoon'
Or a fun mug for the men? Bread & Jam's Man Glitter mug is a winner for me. It's the perfect stocking filler for any DIYer and costs £9.50
And finally, Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without some brussels sprouts! but how about some Chocolate brussels sprouts instead of the real deal? The Quirky Gift Library have boxes or little stocking filler bags (shown below) for £6.95
I hope that's helped fill some stockings! OH and if you need the actual stocking before you begin filling it you know where I am! ;) just whizz me an email and I'll write up an invoice and get you a stocking ASAP!
Tatar for now!
