The Fleur De Force Guide to Stocking Fillers!

Following on from my two YouTube gift guide videos 'What to buy HER for Christmas' and 'What to buy HIM for Christmas' I decided to do my third and final stocking filler gift guide here on my blog.


Whether you're buying for friends or family on a budget, or filling a stocking for your girlfriend, wife, mother etc these are my top gift picks (mostly!) under £10.


Firstly we have this cute-as-a-button Burt's Bees lip balm gift tin. Designed with a ribbon to hang on your tree and containing three of their most popular lip balms (Pomegranate, Honey and Beeswax) this is a risk-free gift in this cold weather, as everyone's lips are in need of a treat I'm sure! £8.50 from FeelUnique.


My all time favourite candles for the festive period, Yankee Candles, also make fabulous gifts. The small jars are especially good for stocking fillers or token gifts for your friends and family and will leave their houses smelling wonderfully festive. Currently 1/3 off RRP (£7.50) at YankeeDirect, enter the code 'fleurdeforce' at checkout for an extra 10% off and these can be yours for just £4.50. My personal favourite Christmas scents have got to be Christmas Eve and Christmas Cookie.


The next is one for the long haired amongst us. If you know someone who struggles with knotty tresses, treat them to a 'Tangle Teezer'. These ergonomically designed plastic brushes fit perfectly in your hand and will painlessly de-tangle even the knottiest mane in next to no time.(A personal life saver for me!) £7.95 delivered from Amazon.


Especially good for mums, Caudalie's fabled Beauty Elixir had been released in a limited edition bottle decorated with gold leaves. The perfect handbag size in 30ml, this fabulous product works in a similar way to MAC's Fix+ (only with better ingredients!). Use it as a refreshing face spritz throughout the day, as a toner or to set your makeup. The limited edition bottle is available now in stores for £11 or you can pick up the original for £9.35 delivered from FeelUnqiue.


My choice of Nail polish this Christmas has to be chrome. When it comes to metallic polishes, you don't get much better than MyFace Cosmetics' selection of lil' bling polishes. My personal favourites are Gilt-y and Diamonds and Pearls. They dry to an almost chrome finish and are priced at only £5.99. Boots are also offering a fabulous deal at the moment. If you spend £15 on MyFace Cosmetics, they'll give you a 'Box of Bling' containing three full size products including Diamonds and Pearls lil' bling polish, a silver lip gloss and black eye pencil for free! It also comes with a voucher for £3.50 off your next purchase of MyMix foundation. Available while stocks last.


For those who want to take the metallic look to another level, Rebel Nails' chrome nail wraps are a must this winter. Allowing you to get the 'Minx Manicure' look in your own home, these will only set you back £7.99 and are available from RebelNails.co.uk


The next products actually got a mention only a few days ago so I will not dwell on them, but the miniature products from MOR really do make the most beautiful gifts. Starting from £9, these divine smelling treats are available in House of Fraser.

Last but not least, I had to include this super cute laser cut heart necklace. Strung on a sterling silver chain, this dinky necklace would make the perfect gift for one of the loves in your life. £25, available from Go Jewellery.

I hope that has given you all some inspiration for the last of your Christmas shopping. It's fair to say I'd be one happy girl on Christmas day if santa left all these goodies in my stocking! Now all that's left to do is relax with a big mug of mulled wine and a warm mince pie. Enjoy!

  18. When I moved to the UK and heard of this TANGLE TEASER I just had to get one. It has been the best thing to ever happen to me. I have such fine hair so I get tangles very easily and this is just AMAZING! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
