Although I may find it hard to buy proper presents for my husband and the other men in my life, the one thing I have never struggled with it stocking fillers. There is endless amounts of stuff I could buy to pop into my hubby's stocking, making this gift guide one of the easiest I have written so far!
For the Movie Buff
Super Hero Socks
Star Wars Tsum Tsum
I think the Disney Tsum Tsum range is fabulous and when I came across the ones made to look like Star Wars characters I just had to pick one up. The best thing about this Jar Jar Binks one is that I picked him up in the sale at Clinton's for just 99p (they are £3.50 normally!). Stocking fillers don't need to be expensive and if you are savvy enough to shop all year around you will find some awesome gifts at bargain prices.
For the Coffee Lover
Instant Late Sachets and Biscuits
Talking about budget savvy stocking fillers, a trip to your local Poundland or Poundworld will do wonders for padding it out. My husband loves himself a latte and these Maxwell House sachets are perfect, eight lattes ready to go and some of his favourite biscuits to boot.
A Little Tipple
A Book (with a Difference)
The Whiskey Dictionary
When the man in your life has everything and is a fan of whiskey like mine is, the fun Whiskey Dictionary by Iain Hector Ross which Sandstone Press recently published would be the perfect addition to his Christmas stocking. With everything from funny folklore to every whiskey term you can think of; this is the ultimate guide to whiskey speak and a fun gift for him!
For Men with a Sweet Tooth
Sea Salt Caramels
Popping a couple of sweetie or chocolate tubes like these I picked up for just £1 a piece in Iceland is a perfect way to fill out that stocking with something cheap yet totally yummy. We all know they won't last long but at least you can be sure they will be enjoyed.
Chocolate and other Treats
I think you have probably seen the theme here. If all else fails you can be sure even nook and cranny of that stocking you are popping gifts into will be filled if you buy up a load of different sweet treats. John doesn't really have a sweet tooth like I do but he does have a selection of treats he really loves. The best thing of all is that they can all be picked up in pretty much any of the pound stores.
For Men who prefer Healthy Snacks
A "Free From" Christmas Snack
A "Free From" Nutty Spread
For the Hygiene Concious
Body Wash, Deodorant, and Spray
Lynx Africa is such a cliché gift, but it is also something that my husband uses a lot of from the body wash in the shower to the dry deodorant. These are another Poundland bargain, and if you're not a fan of Lynx there are plenty of other brands available to choose from.
Toothbrush and Toothpaste
They will certainly need something to stop their teeth rotting from snacking on all the sugar you stuffed in their stocking. Whether you buy a cheap pack of basics toothbrushes with five in the pack or choose to go a little more upmarket with a branded one, these are both useful and easy stocking fillers to buy.
For the Well Groomed Man
I like myself a clean, well groomed man; and even Squidgy is not a fan of her daddy ending up with stubble when he doesn't shave. Making sure that there is shaving foam and razor heads inside his stocking is both a hint and also another useful gift to pop inside.
Beard Care Products
Not everyone is clean shaven, however, and for those who choose to grow a beard some care products are the perfect addition to their stocking. Obviously I don't have a beard, so I can't review this myself but I can tell you that Thatchface's Wild Zest Beard Oil comes highly recommended by my uncle who does! He said to me, "Thatchface's Wild Zest Beard Oil has a pleasant fresh fragrance and moisturizes your whiskers effectively. It has now become part of my daily grooming routine!"
For Fighting against Man Flu
At this time of year it is inevitable that "man flu" will be doing the rounds once again... so popping a few gifts into the man in your life's stocking to combat it will hopefully help you out a little bit.
Heat Holder Socks
These SockShop Heat Holders socks not only come with grips on the bottom making them awesome slipper socks, but they are made out of thermal materials (with an amazing 2.34 TOG rating!) perfect for keeping your feet cosy and warm.
The best part though, is that they come in different designs including the Superman ones I have for John, Hulk, Spiderman and so many more!
