christmas gift guide - stocking fillers

This beauty ball (which you can actually hang on the tree as a bauble) and dream team duo are the perfect stocking fillers as they are both inexpensive and innovative. I personally really struggle with getting a peaceful sleep at night and find that the deep sleep pillow spray really helps to chill me out and feel relaxed.

Another nice idea if you are on a budget is this complete home spa set by Radox, including a shower scrub, bubble bath and candle duo. This set features my favourite scent from the whole Radox range, I'm guessing it's the Neroli oil that I enjoy and find fresh smelling yet feminine. 

Mavala Angel Nail Colour - Sparkling Violet - Sparkling Bronze - £4.30 each

These cute little polishes by Mavala come in lots of beautiful glittery shades and can even be hung on the Christmas tree by the silver loop attached on the packaging. These have to be my favourite stocking filler idea out of the bunch as they are just so Christmassy looking and I adore the quirky angel wings design.

Next up, you guessed it, another candle. Having a high quality and luxurious candle for cosy nights in is now seen as a complete essential in any girl's book. They are great gifts as I know many people that would usually splurge on an expensive candle yet would really love to own one. This particular candle smells beautifully fresh, exactly like fresh linen sheets in my opinion, making it great to light on crisp Winter mornings. Though this would only be a stocking filler for people with big budgets.

This tub of Egyptian Magic all purpose cream is probably the most interesting product that is featured on my gift guides. The cream is enriched with Olive Oil, Beeswax, Honey, Bee Pollen and Royal Jelly making it a truly luxurious formulation. You can use the product on split ends of your hair, as a cuticle treatment, for cuts and burns, as an eyelash conditioner, on dry patches of skin and the list goes on. The price point is fairly high but a tub will literally last ages as it's a balm consistency and you only need to use a small amount.

Another great set if you are watching the price tag is this one by Sanctuary, including a body wash, foaming bath soak, body scrub, body lotion and bath float. If there was an award for best set in terms of value for money then this would definitely get it, five great sized products for a tenner is an absolute bargain in my book.

Next up will be a Christmas Gift Guide post on Benefit sets!
