Christmas Gift Guide #3: Stocking Fillers
With only a day left before December arrives, we are turning our attention to stocking fillers!
As if sorting out our main presents wasn’t hard enough, there’s also a pressure to present our loved ones with a stocking bursting full of crimbo goodies. Well, luckily for you we’ve done the hard work in digging out some pretty awesome funky gifts and gadgets which are guaranteed to put a smile on mum and dad’s faces!
Our selection includes quirky gifts which fit perfectly in stockings, and come in well under budget too! They would also make brilliant Secret Santa gifts!
Check out our entire stocking fillers collection here, and also keep an eye on our blog over the next couple of weeks for a new gift guide per day, including guides for foodies, bookworms and keen gardeners!
Suck UK Robot Nutcrackers, from £14.95 each
Nuts are a traditional Christmas snack so why not combine this festive treat with your son / dad / hubby’s love of robots?! These fun designer nutcrackers are great gifts for boys who still love their toys!
Sagaform Whiskey Stones, £12.50
Coming with a rather swish black velvet pouch, this set of nine nifty whiskey stones will ensure that your fella’s favourite tipple remains perfectly chilled and completely undiluted (and will also keep Santa happy when he arrives down the chimney!). A perfect stocking filler!
An adorable stocking filler for those aspiring Mary Berrys out there! Colourful and compact, this eight-piece measuring cup set is an essential gadget in the armoury of any serious cook or baker.
This runaway alarm clock would make a hilarious (and mean) stocking filler for those friends who are always late! This genius/evil creation gives you one chance to get up, but if you press snooze then be ready to face the terrible consequences! Clocky will not only start beeping, but will also hop off your nightstand and wheel around your room looking for a place to hide, meaning that you’ll have to get out of bed to silence him. The horror.
Buy your male friends and family a bottle opener like no other with this funky pirate corkscrew from Suck UK! Complete with an easy-open lever, foil cutter and beer bottle opener, this peg-legged pirate will open your dad’s drink faster than he can say “Ahoy, me Hearties”.
Disclaimer: We cannot be held responsible for your Dad’s inevitable pirate impressions!
Make someone’s day with these uplifting mugs from Happy Jackson. If you know someone who is Mister Wonderful or the Queen of Awesomeness, then what better way is there to tell them than with a novelty mug?! These vibrant designs also come in coaster form – see the full Happy Jackson range here!
Flamingo Candles, £12 each
Flamingo Candles are a collection of fun-filled organic candles, handmade right here in Blighty. Each tantalising candle comes in a stylish square jar featuring the striking acrylic Florrie Flamingo motif, and is filled to the brim with scrumptious flavour! Our favourites are Pink Lemonade and the seasonal Cranberry, Orange and Cinnamon Explosion!
Pit Stop Pizza Cutters, £14.50 each
These novelty pizza slicers are a stocking must-have for F1 fans, pizza addicts and lovers of funky design! Designed to look like retro racing cars, these delightfully detailed designs feature air vents, racing numbers and drivers, who come complete with a retro-style helmet and goggles. They will put you in pole position for the perfect slicing action – with two slicing wheels, these car-shaped cutters are twice as effective as a standard (boring) pizza cutter.
Umbrella Tea Infuser, £9.50
You might not think that tea can get any more British, but think again with this novelty tea infuser. The umbrella is a British icon, and fear not, this particular brolly will not be turning inside out when times get tough! Check out our other tea infusers here, and also look out for our Coffee and Tea Lovers gift guide next week!
