It's getting to that time of year again, isn't it? Where the songs start singing about white winter wonderlands, and the adverts begin to paint a picture of joy and celebrations. I love this time of year. I love talking about the Christmas Holidays, I love buying things for the people I love. And more than anything, I love spending time with my family.
In the words of Zoe Sugg, today I thought I would "dip my toes in the Christmas gift guide waters". Over the years, I've really loved reading other bloggers gift guide posts- they're my primary source of inspiration when I'm unsure of what to get for certain people, so I really hope that this list of gorgeous, unique stocking fillers will help you with your Christmas shopping!
For the Beauty Obsessed
Their instagram feed is probably full of makeup tutorials From Anastasia Beverly Hills, to MAC Cosmetics, this person always spends a good portion of their paycheck on beauty products. Think they've got it all? Think again. This luscious velvet makeup bag from Topshop is the perfect gift for that one friend or family member who spends way too much time shopping on feel unique.
For the Stay-At-Home Gal
I'm pretty sure we all know at least one person who loves their lazy days. You know, the kind of person who'd invite you over to their house for hot chocolate and movies in a DIY blanket fort. And we all love these people dearly. These people deserve the best things in life, don't you think? And what would be better than the best pair of slippers for your favourite stay-at-home gal, which you can get from New Look right here.
For the next Mary Berry
You always want to go over to their house, because there is always an aroma of freshly baked goods wafting from the kitchen, ushering you to taste their newest baked creation. And it's always delicious. So what better than to get the next Mary Berry something from Mary Berry's very own range? John Lewis are selling these lush cake tins which would be just perfect for any aspiring bakers out there.
For the Dreamers of the Dreams
Maybe they always talk about that crazy dream they had last night. Maybe they love to analyse their dreams and try to figure out what they mean. Maybe they're even studying psychology and are learning about the theories of sleep and dreams. Or maybe they're just interested in dreams. Whatever it is, maybe this Dreamopedia from Topshop would be the unique gift they've always wanted but never knew.
For the Tech-Obsessed
They're the likely innovators of our generation. They're always ahead of mainstream technology, and probably had access to smartphones years before the rest of us. Or maybe they just like interesting tech. Either way, this Mobile Lens Kit from Urban Outfitters is a gorgeous little stocking filler for them. Plus, it comes in white/rose gold- who wouldn't want that in their lives?
For the Wanderess
The wonderful thing about loving to travel is that you can never see it all; so there's always a journey to save up for... a new place to explore. When I spotted this Saving To Go Places money box from ASOS, I instantly fell in love. Although it's not something I would use personally, I have a few people in mind who I think would love it even more than I do this Christmas.
For the Music Lover
They can probably turn any sentence into a song... they have a great passion for the value of the meaning of music, and the quality of sound. They're probably always bugging you to 'check out this new song' they found, too. Well, I found the perfect solution for getting them off your back. This Crossley Harper Wireless Speaker from Urban Outfitters is such a gorgeous, sophisticated present idea. It's not technically a "Stocking filler" as such, and it's a bit on the pricey side, but if a few friends chip in together to buy this for a good friend, their Christmas will surely be made.
What would your ideal stocking filler be?
