It's the most wonderful time of the year... I can't tell you guys how excited I am for Christmas. The smells, the food, I'm ready for it all! I really enjoyed creating last year's gift guides and you seemed to find them quite helpful so I'm bringing them back and today I'm showing you some amazing stocking fillers. These are all the little side gifts that maybe aren't quite 'big' enough to be main presents but are still super cute and thoughtful!

I love buying stocking fillers as they tend to be more personal and unexpected than the bigger presents. Food gifts are a popular choice for obvious reasons but these new Galaxy Wafer Curls are much more exciting than a standard bar of chocolate. I have the Chocolate Creme option but there's also Hazelnut Creme which sounds dreamy! The re-sealable pouch makes them great for sharing too! Following on from sweet gifts I personally think you can't go wrong with a flavoured lip balm - this Reese's Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup* offering smells incredible and is really moisturising! 

It can be slightly tricker when it comes to gifting beauty as everyone has different taste. If you have a friend or family member and you happen to know their favourite shade then a MAC Lipstick never fails to please! Or if you want to play things safe the Revlon Lash Glue and Happy Place Cosmetics Makeup Brush Cleanser are sure to go down a treat! I love receiving minis and gift sets and Clinique always have some amazing deals for xmas! The Moisture Surge range is my fave! The CND Vinylux Long Wear Top Coat* is another great option for any nail polish addict! 

My personal favourite stocking fillers are home/lifestyle goodies like this Matalan Marble Alphabet Coaster. It's so pretty and only costs £3 - bargain! Everyone loves to feel warm and cosy around this time of year and for me, The White Company Winter Candle just screams Christmas! I also think you can't go wrong with a cute set of pyjamas or some fluffy socks. Primark is amazing for little bits like that, their Pink Hearts Hot Water Bottle is one of the best purchases I've made this year! I've added some more ideas for inspiration below! 

Will you be doing stocking fillers this year?
