Stocking Fillers and Cute Little Gifts

cute christmas gifts

The part of the gift guide that many look forward to; it’s the cute small gifts and stocking fillers section! Hope you like it – I’ve included some non-beauty bits and pieces too! I especially love the Liberty Hello Kitty things at Boots and also the little Stila palette. That’s not really a Christmas gift – you can get it all year round – but it’s so well-priced and it would make any girl happy, I think! Enjoy – all product info and stockist links can be found below the video pane.

    Ah a lovely list of gifts! My OH graduates from her PhD tomorrow and I’ve bought her a whole new set of makeup to surprise her, and the Stila brushes above are part of it! (I had a 10% off voucher for Boots so got them for £18). I’d list it all off but imagine it would be incredibly dull, but I had such fun putting it together. I will say this – it is all packaged in a Cath Kidston dinosaur wash bag as her roller derby name is Theasaurus Wrecks. ;)

    Thank you Ruth.

    I like headbands but have fine hair and find they slip. Yours didn’t seem to budge, not even a little bit, in the video. Is there a secret to keeping them in place or is it just the style of the one you are wearing? Looks great.

    Thanks again for the lovely gift ideas.

    Wonderful suggestions, especially since I’m always a bit lost when it comes to stocking stuffers. I especially like the Aromatherapy Associates oil (so cute) and the Stila brushes (I’m a brush junkie!)

    Even though I can’t get many of these items in the States, you’ve given me a direction to go in. Thanks, Ruth. Appreciate it!
