2018 Stocking Fillers for Her | Christmas Gift Guide | Me Becoming Mum

In our home, Father Christmas brings stocking fillers rather than expensive gifts, to make it fair for everyone. That doesn't mean, however, that he doesn't need an idea or two for what to bring. Here are my top picks for stocking fillers for her this Christmas.

Me Becoming Mum's 2018 Christmas Stocking Fillers for Her

True love is like a pair of socks; you’ve got to have two, and they have to match.

Socks

I love me a comfy, soft pair of socks and they always make a great gift. It may be a bit cliche to assume that socks are a gift that works well for any occasion but despite popular opinion I do love a pair of socks or two in my stocking. There are so many different types available on the market, from fancy socks to character socks to fluffy slipper socks so you will always be able to find something well suited to the lady in your life.

I only drink twice a year: on my birthday, and when it’s not my birthday.

Bursting bubbles drinking treat

Everyone knows I am a big fan of a gin and tonic in the evening after a long, hard day… but to be fair I’m also happy with a glass of prosecco, fruity cider, wine or even sparkling water! I was sent some limited edition pineapple Popaball bursting bubbles* to try out and I would highly recommend them as a stocking filler for her this Christmas! They add a little something-something to your drink, and are certainly a fun, unique way to spice it up! They also do a variety of other flavours and even shimmers too!

Soak away your troubles in a bath full of bubbles.

Bath bubbles and fizzers

Is there anything better than a hot bath full of bubbles? With two little girls who love baths it isn’t very often I get to enjoy a solo soak anymore but that doesn’t mean I enjoy them any less. My favourite bath bubbles have to be the range by Radox (which is also a great, budget friendly stocking filler idea!) but bubble bath isn’t the only thing I enjoy on those rare occasions I get to enjoy a long relaxing bath. Joules not only do fabulous clothing but I also got some of their amazing Joules bath fizzers for Christmas last year which are fantastic! They are on sale on their website at the moment so grab a bargain for your leading lady’s stocking this year!

Be your own kind of beautiful.

Face Mask

They may not be the most glamorous of Christmas gifts but a lush face mask has always been a perfect stocking filler for her in my mind. John works at Primark and always sees when the new ones come in and makes sure to buy any that I haven’t tried yet for my Christmas stocking each year. They are easy to use, cheap to buy and always leave my skin feeling fresh and fab-u-lous.

Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.

Nail File

With so much of my life dedicated to being a wife, mum, blogger, homemaker and so much more, getting my nails done every few weeks is time just for me. However, I have on occasion broken and chipped nails and with an acrylic overlay on my natural nail (yes they really are that long!) it can be hard to fix. Thanks to the amazing Leighton Denny crystal nail file* I have a superior nail file for all my nail care needs. So whether you have a party girl in your life or someone who simply likes taking good care of themselves, this nail file is the perfect stocking filler for them this Christmas.

False lashes

Christmas is the ultimate party season, and what woman doesn’t want to look absolutely drop dead gorgeous on a night out on the town. One easy way to help this happen is to accessorise to the max. I have never worn false eyelashes before, but I love how they look and give your eyes a little extra va-va-voom. The KISS 5th Avenue Lash Couture faux-link lashes* I was sent are a perfect addition to any stocking fillers for her to make sure your leading lady looks her best time after time.

Make Up

Wearing make-up always makes me feel like I can take on the world. I don’t wear it all the time but I enjoy wearing it and feel good when I wear it. When it comes to stocking fillers for her, Sleek MakeUP have a variety of products that are a perfect fit. I have been testing out their highlighter palette*, lethal length mascara*, I Divine eyeshadow palette* and Matte Me metallic liquid lip*, and love each item. The Matte Me lip products are definitely my favourites though, coming in a variety of colours and looking lush.

Face moisturiser

Skin care is an important part of your daily self-care routine and having the best products available will help you take the best care of your skin. Nakin was nominated for Best New British Brand and after using their performance face serum for a few weeks I can see why. With a wonderful scent and natural ingredients such as green tea, pomegranate and rosemary leaf it leaves my skin feeling nourished and refreshed after every use. You can check out their performance face serum and their other products perfect for stocking fillers for her this Christmas on the Nakin Skincare website.

Hand cream

I found a favourite hand cream in the form of Sanctuary Spa’s hand creams and John bought me a stash of them for Christmas a couple of years ago which I am almost out of (take note John, I need some more this year!) There are so many reasons I love this product from the smell that reminds me of post bath relaxing when I was pregnant with Pickle to the way it makes my skin feel so soft. Without a shadow of a doubt I know this is a perfect stocking filler for her.

Always be yourself, unless you can be a unicorn. Then always be a unicorn.

Unicorn powerbank*

Squidgy isn’t the only unicorn lover in my home, and I have a variety of unicorn products from bowls to plates to mugs. As a blogger something I am sure to always need is somewhere or something to charge my phone which regularly runs out of battery with the regular use for tweeting, Instagram stories and more. With the unicorn powerbank* from Menkind I can be sure to always have a way to top up my phone battery in a fun, unique, cute way! Small enough to fit in a handbag and brightly coloured so I can spot it at the bottom of a changing bag, this powerbank makes such an awesome stocking filler idea for the lady in your life.

Happiness is a hot drink on a cold day.

Mugs

I love a steaming cup of hot chocolate, and while Costa is my favourite place to get one I'm also happy with a mug at home (as long as I can add some cream and marshmallows to the top!  In my opinion there is no better Christmas stocking filler than a nice, unique mug to fill with your favourite yummy hot drink.

I hope this post has given you (and Santa!) some perfect Christmas stocking filler ideas for her. With the countdown to Christmas really beginning now, be sure to get those stocking fillers bought and ready!

Wishing you a very Happy Christmas from my family and me this year!
