Top 10 Stocking Fillers for Women

by Fluffleberry on November 24, 2012

All men need a little help in the gift department, so here are my top treats for 2012. I guarantee she’ll be impressed.

1. No woman can do without her beauty essentials and number one on my list (and many other women’s to boot) is the YSL Touche Eclat. Highlighter, illuminater, subtle concealer and a sure fire stocking favourite.

2. Liz Earle is a recent discovery for me but I am already addicted to her products. They are chemical free and best of all they feel and smell amazing. Her Cleanse and Polish-Hot Cloth Cleansers are award winning and I’m hopelessly addicted to her bodywashes too. Any of her products would go down a treat on Christmas day and don’t forget a voucher for one of her famous facials could be squeezed into a stocking too!

3. I think Christmas presents (and life in general) should always be served with a large dollop of silliness. Katie Hillier is my favourite jewellery designer and her new Snowball Hair collection is delightful.

 

 

4. The next item on the list is Grace, A Memoir by Grace Coddington. Long time creative director at American Vogue. Artist, visionary and lover of cats. Grace is one of my all time idols but this book will go down well with anyone with even a passing interest in fashion.

 

5. Get the Wah look from my previous post Wah Nails with DIY nail wraps and nail art pens. Hours of fun, funky manicures and a wonderful addition to her stocking.

 

 

6. Adding a small box of her favourite choccies will always put a smile on her face. If you’re unsure try the Christmas Gift ideas at the Artisan du Chocolat. Festive, beautiful and delicious.

7. If she loves expensive shoes but you can’t afford a pair buy her a digital polaroid camera so she can take pictures of her shoes and stick them on the boxes. A great way to stay on top of your footwear collection. Or just take silly pictures of each other on Christmas day.

8. Girls who love clothes love to keep their cupboards fresh and moth free. I love these handmade Sarah Moore lavender bags. They are perfect for a Christmas stocking, but how do you decide between the bunny and the kitty???

 

                                      

 

9. Here’s a stocking filler that will prove you have your finger firmly on the pulse but that won’t break the bank. Kate Moss’ new lipsticks for Rimmel have just come out and they retail for under £6. Result!

 

 

10. It wouldn’t be my blog if I didn’t indulge in a little fantasy. So here it is. If I found a Solange Azagury-Partridge writing ring in the bottom of my stocking along with my tangerine, walnut and pound, I would be ecstatic. What girl wouldn’t? One in particular that I would love to discover at the bottom of my stocking is a seriously beautiful gold and diamond ring that says “love”

Or if you are nervous about buying an engagement ring without your beloved by your side the “marry me” gold ring might be the perfect way to start Christmas morning!? Better yet make her laugh and honour her inner rebel with the ring that says “fuck off”! Sorry everyone, it’s just so bloody cool! I know, I know. I’m a mummy now and in reality my life is much more about the love ring but hey, it’s my imaginary stocking!

Loved your Fluffleberry blog! And I could talk to you about many of your topics ie I worked for Lancaster (prestige Coty brands) for 5 years and Rimmel products came to us in large bags as give-aways and I wish we had the Kate Moss lipsticks then! I was there when Coty decided to continue their support of her as the ‘face of Coty’ after the Pete Doherty disasters! And….. Touche eclat – we have been raving about it for 30 years! I remember the mid 80’s when we bought it for each of our girl friends – the ‘in’ thing then!
And the famous Jane Birkin – immortalized by Hermes in the large hand bag! and a surreal character – enchanting to say the least.
Now -Liz Earle – I was at a World Duty Free Beauty Awards Presentation evening in Covent Garden in 2005(ish)and she won the cosmetic newcomer of the year award – something like that anyway, and we were all given a range of her products – how great they were! A new and fresh concept then…..
That’s it for now – hope Inigo and Nick are asleep and behaving themselves! xxxxx

Hi Carolyn, thank you so much for your message and so glad you like my blog. What an interesting and glamorous career you’ve had! Inigo is a good boy but I fear it is too late to train Nick xxx
