5 brilliant stocking filler ideas for the last minute shopper

The best stocking fillers this side of Santa

When it comes to Christmas shopping, there are two types of people: the ones who are organised, and the ones who make a mad dash around the shops on Christmas Eve. Personally, I veer more towards the latter, having usually had great ideas throughout November and December but not actually taking action until the last minute… you’d think I’d learn right?

The thing is, over the years I’ discovered, there are always little last minute bits and pieces to get – no matter how organised you are. So, if you’re getting ready to strap on the riot gear and head towards the shops, here are a few ideas that might help make the manouevers that bit easier!

NPW Hot Dog Lip Balm €6

As stocking fillers go, this blueberry lip balm (available in Boots) is pretty awesome, especially if you have a family member or friend who is a dog lover!

MiniMergency Kits by Pinch €25

I spied these in AVOCA the other day and had to give them a mention – these small by mighty zip up pouches not only look gorgeous but are also filled with 17 different different products a gal might need if she was caught in a pinch (hence the name!).


Inside the MiniMergency you’ll find: clear nail polish, nail polish remover, double sided tape, earring backs, mini sewing kit, a tampon, safety pin, pain killers, emery board, dental floss, lip balm, clear hair elastics, hair spray, deodorant towelette, breath freasher, a plaster, and a stain remover pad.


Soap & Glory Take Your Pink Collection €10.40

This looks more expensive than it is, which is never a bad thing! The decorative packaging houses 4 miniature products including a shower gel, hand cream, body scrub and body butter – and there’s a bonus body buffer puff in there as well.

Oh K Panda Cooling Eye Mask €7.80

Cute and functional too, this cooling panda eye mask from Accessorize was inspired by Korean Beauty trends – and might come in very handy after a New Year’s Eve party!

Molton Brown Beauty Bauble €12-€14


If you don't do stockings in your house then why not surprise someone with a gift hanging on the tree? These beauty baubles from Molton brown are filled with their signature shower & bath gels so not only look great, but smell great too.
