Christmas Gift Guide: Stocking Fillers + Giveaway

Stocking fillers are definitely my favourite gifts to write about. I included a selection of products for every budget. From very affordable crackers to more luxurious pieces, including body care, makeup, fragrance and more. I am also giving away a little NEOM gift set :)


Are you ready? :) Let's get started!

I am starting with a Nuxe Reve De Miel Lip Balm, because it is a product I repurchased many times and I think that everyone needs it in their life. The yellow one is limited edition and you can also get it in green and pink, or classic white packaging. If you order from nuxe.co.uk you will be able to pick a free deluxe sample and I always go for one of their mini Huile Prodigieuse oils. They make the cutest stocking fillers!

I am also a big fan of EOS lip balms and the sweet mint one tastes and smells lovely! You can buy it from Naturisimo for £5.99 with free delivery. They currently offer 10% off with a code: TREAT as well.

Korres offer some lovely lip balms too, including Guava, Mango, Wild Rose, Jasmine, Pomegranate and Quince. Asos have them on sale for £6.00 at the moment (HERE).

And for those who need a bit of relaxation and struggle to fall asleep, This Works Sleep Balm will be a real godsend! It's normally £12.00, but you can get it in a little set for only £10.00 at the moment with a mini Deep Sleep Pillow Spray (HERE).

If I want to treat a makeup lover to something nice, without breaking the bank, I can always count on Bourjois. Their Rouge Edition Velvets* (only £4.49 at the moment) and 12H Lipsticks* are simply AMAZING and the 1 Seconde nail polishes feature the best brush ever and a gorgeous formula.  The new Eyeshadow Quads* are stunning as well and come in very wearable colour combinations.
Oh, and if you want to get more for your money, make sure to order Bourjois goodies from Boots, because they currently offer a FREE Bourjois Timeless Elegance Gift Set (with 4 full size products) when you spend £15.00 on Bourjois. This offer is simply too good to miss! Find out more details HERE.

If the person you are buying for prefers a more luxe feel, the Joan Collins Beauty range will definitely impress them. The Crystal Mirror*(£30.00) is absolutely beautiful and the Brow & Eye Definition Kit*(£23.00) and Frame Line Eye Liner*(£20.00) will be an amazing addition to any makeup bag. How stunning is the packaging? I am in love!


More budget friendly options for makeup addicts :) Yves Rocher products aren't extremely popular in UK, but they are worth mentioning. The Moisturising Cream Lipstick* is currently half price and the Lash Plumping Mascara* is on a buy one, get one free offer.


Not everyone likes fake lashes, but if you know someone who adores them (I do), the Eyelure Sparkled Party Lashes*(£6.95) will be the ultimate stocking filler! They are sooo pretty! 

For those who suffer from dry skin, the Lanolips Rose Balm Intense* and Lanolips Golden Ointment* will be real life savers! My husband has super dry hands and dry patches everywhere (due to eczema) and these two work absolute wonders! I use these as well, as my skin gets quite dry in Winter, especially my elbows, knees and ankles.

I mentioned the Aromatherapy Associates Instant Inner Strength Roller Ball* (£15.00) and Inner Strength Bath & Shower Oil Star* (£10.00) HERE already, but I had to include them in my stocking fillers guide as well :) They would make beautiful gifts for Aromatherapy Associates fans.

The Christmas Pud Soap*(£8.00) by Soapsmith would be ideal for those who like their gifts VERY festive :) Pudding Lane Christmas Pud smells like a real Christmas pudding with notes of spices and fruits. I don't think I can bring myself to using it though, because it is just gorgeous :)

For fake tan enthusiasts, you might want to buy the NKD SKN Tinted Tan Mousse by Vita Liberata*. Superdrug have it on offer at the moment at only £9.96! I am seriously impressed with the formula, as it dries instantly and gives a gorgeous, sunkissed look.

Roger & Gallet bring out lovely gifts each year and their little crackers are adorable! You get a 30ml hand cream in each one and they cost only £6.00 each (currently available from £4.80 via feelunique). I have Rose* and FLeur d'Osmanthus* and they smell divine! The Citron Energising Sorbet Body Lotion* (£15.00) is heavenly too, featuring an ultra light texture and an uplifting citrusy scent.

The Latest In Beauty Christmas Crackers* are a real bargain (£12.95) and you can either buy them to transform your Christmas table into a beauty addicts dream, or as a treat for your loved ones. Each cracker comes with 3 products (minis and full size) including brands like Mavala, Caudalie, Sisley, L'Oreal and more. The packaging is to die for as well and I can't recommend these enough. You can see the contents of my crackers below. Amazing!

 Sweaty Betty Hair Toggles are a must have for me and I simply cannot live without them. Invisibobbles*  are also fantastic. They are available from feelunique and you can get them in a pack of 3 for only £3.75. I got the festive edition in a beauty box, but there are plenty of standard colours to choose from.  Life changing accessories! You HAVE to buy a pack for everyone in your life who has long hair.

A handwash might not be your first choice for a gift, but the Merumaya Confidensual Handwash* is divine! It is creamy, luxurious and super hydrating and it smells beautiful. If you are a Merumaya fan, you will be familiar with this unique scent. I love it!

If Marc Jacobs Daisy scents are out of your price range, but you want to treat someone to a cute bottle of perfume with a gorgeous floral scent, the FlowerParty By Night EDP*(£19.00) is the one. It's a fruity floral with added bitter almond essential oil, star anise and bourbon vanilla absolute extracts and the flower shaped cap is just adorable!


The last item I decided to include is for the ultimate pamper queens :) Neom's Three Nights Of Peace Mini Bath & Shower Oil Collection* (£10.00) includes three little oils (Real Luxury, Time To Unwind and Tranquility) and it is a great introduction kit for Neom virgins or a nice stocking filler for Neom addict.


In today's Christmas giveaway, I have the Neom Three Nights Of Peace Mini Bath & Shower Oil Collection. Enter below for your chance to win:
