One of my favourite Christmas memories growing up, is when me and my sister would run into our parents room, on Christmas morning and open our stockings on the bed. We would sit very excited opening our presents, and I would always be the most excited about the sugar mouse at the bottom (tell me who else had these in their stocking!) So to me, Christmas stockings will always have a special place in my heart. It’s not Christmas without a stocking!
Today we’re kicking off my gift guide posts with a Beauty Stocking Fillers one, so this is little beauty bits that are perfect for stockings or for just general presents. A lot of the presents in our stockings are beauty products and I love opening little bits like this on Christmas morning.
I’ll also mention some other classic stocking fillers down below too!
Little things like lip balm are always a winner when it comes to stocking fillers, this year I have a whole array as I’m currently on a course of Roacctuane which means dry lip central. We have this cute SkinnyDip and Carmex Sugar Plum lip balm, a Tanya Burr Cosmetics one and Dr Lipp Nipple Balm (yes really) as just a few of my faves this year.
Beauty sets such as this Sweet Lip Creams lip set from Tanya Burr Cosmetics are also a good idea, I also love these Gatineau crackers which contain lip balms (see told you I was obsessed) and the Zoella Beauty Perfume and Body Lotion set too.
Little make up bits such as eyeliner, mascara (the Tanya Burr Cosmetics Selfie line are perfect for Christmas stocking fillers thanks to their gold packaging) nail polish is also always a good shout ( I love essie, Nailberry and Barry M!) As well as other affordable make up items like the new make up range from Next.
Mum usually includes quite practical and useful beauty products in our stockings which I always find handy, things like dry shampoo, shower gel, bubble bath, a new razor, may seem a bit boring, but can you beat a new shower gel or a new fresh razor? I think not.
Bath bombs, face masks, and hair products are perfect for pamper evenings, and also make cute little gifts. These are the kind of things I love to see in my stocking!
