Christmas is a magical time of year, with friends and family coming together to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. It's also a stressful time of year when you're trying to find gifts for everyone on your list. But don't worry! Here are some ideas for stocking fillers and small presents that won't break the bank but will still put a smile on someone's face this Christmas.
For your mum
For mum, what better way to show her how much you care than by taking her out for lunch? Treat her to a meal at one of your favourite restaurants and get ready for some quality bonding time.
If you’re feeling particularly generous, why not buy mum an early Christmas present in the form of a spa day? Treat her to a massage or facial and then spend some time together afterwards chatting over coffee.
If that sounds like too much effort, why not just buy mum some flowers? It doesn’t have to be anything fancy—she'll appreciate any kind of blooms from the garden centre around the corner as much as anything else!
For your sister
For your sister:
A book. If you're looking for something a little more personal than just a gift card or perfume, consider a book. Your sister may want to pick out a new read at the bookstore or order it online and have it shipped directly to her house. There are plenty of options in every genre, so pick one that fits her personality!
A candle. If your sister loves relaxing with candles (or even just smells good), then this option is perfect! Candles come in all shapes and sizes, so find one that suits her personality best—maybe she likes spicy scents or flowery ones? You could even go for an animal-themed candle if she's into those things; there are lots of options out there!
Pamper box subscription service: If your sister loves pampering herself with beauty products and other spa treatments, consider getting her something like Birchbox or Ipsy . These services will send monthly care packages filled with samples from different brands based on what they think would be good matches based on the information provided during registration—and they're often quite affordable too!
For your friend
For the girl who is always cracking up:
We all know someone who’s always got a laugh on their lips and a joke in their back pocket. For them, we recommend getting them something funny—a mug with a cheesy pun, or maybe even an old-school stand-up comedy DVD. If they don’t have one already, you could also consider gifting them tickets to see their favorite comedian live at a local venue (if it's possible to get tickets). Your gift will surely bring some smiles!
For everyone else:
For those who don't like silly gifts but still want some entertainment options, we suggest going with books! There are so many great ones out there right now that can be used as stocking stuffers or even under the tree if you're feeling extra generous. Plus if they're into reading then it means more time spent together when you both pick up your new reads!
For those who need help keeping track of things:
If your friend needs organization in her life then this is where we come in! We've put together our own list of items that will make organizing easier for her (and us). There are plenty of planners out there but we've chosen these three because each one has its own unique spin on organization methods which means there's something for every type of person!
For your secret Santa
A nice bottle of wine.
Some sweets or chocolates to enjoy while sipping it.
A box of chocolates, just in case the first one doesn't go down too well.
Bath products—for example, a foaming bath bomb or some lovely scented candles for the evening tubs. If you're really feeling generous (or want to make it extra special) get her an expensive loofah!
Candles are always a good idea because they smell great and come in so many different styles and scents. They'll also look pretty on any side table or windowsill where she can see them whenever she walks through the room...which will be often when she's enjoying her new favourite scent!
Scarves are very popular right now; they go with everything and look great when matched up with different outfits! This can make your gift feel more personal as well: maybe there’s one particular colour combination that goes particularly well with her wardrobe? If not, don't worry—there’ll definitely be something gorgeous among our collection here at Topman!
For the beauty lover
For the beauty lover, here are some of our favorite gift ideas:
Hand cream. Nothing is better than a hand massage after washing your hands (unless it's a foot massage). Help your loved one feel pampered with a luxurious hand cream. We love this rose-scented version from L'Occitane.
A beauty product. If you're looking for something more specific than just "beauty," we've got you covered! Check out these suggestions:
Makeup brushes: Brush On Block makes gorgeous makeup brushes that look like they could be works of art themselves. They are made from bamboo handles and goat hair bristles and come in various shapes and sizes depending on what kind of makeup application she likes best (whether it's blending or contouring). The set includes five separate brushes in all different sizes so that she can create any look she wants!
Bronzer brush: It might sound silly to put a bronzer brush on this list because it's technically not strictly for Christmas—but if you're buying this as part of her stocking stuffer haul, then give her something nice like this Le Metier De Beaute brush so she can use it whenever she needs to get some color on her face! This particular model has synthetic bristles which means they'll last longer than natural fibers do compared with other products at similar price points."
For the fashionista
For the fashionista, it's important to find something that she will truly love. Fashion is about expressing yourself and your personality through your clothing, so finding a gift that matches her taste is key.
You can find a gift for any budget! If you don't know much about fashion, ask her friends for advice or check out magazines that focus on what's trending this season.
For your niece
If you have a niece, the best gift is something she can use. Whether it's a book, toy, dress or pair of shoes—the more practical the better. If your niece is old enough to go shopping herself (and if she likes the same things that you do), then consider giving her a gift card to shop with at her favorite store.
What is a stocking filler?
A stocking filler is a small gift that you can add to your partner’s Christmas stocking. These gifts are typically inexpensive, but they need not be without thought or effort.
Why should you get your girlfriend/wife/partner/best friend something for her stocking?
The Christmas season is about giving, so why not make your lady feel special by adding an extra little present to her Christmas morning? A great way of showing how much you care about her, it will make her smile when she opens up her stocking with your thoughtful gift.
What can I put in my partner’s stockings?
Stocking fillers come in all shapes and sizes; they don't have to cost much money either! Here are some ideas:
Here's a few ideas to get you started - and remember that it's the thought that counts rather than a hefty price tag.
If you are struggling to think of something for your loved one, let me help. Here are some guidelines:
Don't spend too much money. Be sensible! If you don't have enough cash, then buy a thoughtful card or beautiful rose (women love those) instead.
Don't spend more than you can afford on each gift - this is important because sometimes it's not the thought that counts but the price tag!
Don't buy something that was just released in the shops and is "in fashion", unless she specifically asked for it. You wouldn’t want an old pair of trainers from last summer as a Christmas present, would you?
Try to avoid buying things like clothes or jewellery unless they are really special items which she will truly treasure (and maybe even wear!) - otherwise they'll end up in the back of her closet and forgotten until next year... when they'll be past their best before date anyway!
We hope that this guide has given you some inspiration for the perfect Christmas gift. Remember, it’s the thought that counts rather than a hefty price tag. Just because something is expensive doesn’t mean it will be appreciated by her - think about what she likes and get something that suits her personality!
