Blogmas Day 1: Stocking Fillers for Her

For my first day of blogmas, I've decided to put together a post on ideas for stocking fillers for that female in your life! We always got chocolate, stationery and make up in ours! What did you get in yours?

1. Phone Case - A phone case is a great idea for a stocking and can be catered for all budgets. I buy all of mine, like this one from eBay as they're so cheap. Just be careful if it's being shipped from Asia as they'll take a few weeks and may not arrive before Christmas. If you're looking to splurge on a phone case then an Otterbox is the way to go.

2. Sweets / Chocolate - These chocolate coins from Aunty Nellie's Sweet Shop are a very cheap stocking filler. I always remember getting these in my stocking when I was younger so I think they're the perfect addition to anyone's stocking.

3. Bath Bombs - Dealz have very cute cheap bath bomb sets at the moment but in my opinion, you can't beat Lush! They usually only cost about €5 and the quality and scent are great.

4. Make Up Brushes - This is another thing where you can save or splurge (without reducing the quality). I have a few of the Make Up Revolution brushes which I love, especially the eye brushes. They're super cheap and have lovely gift sets too. Another brand I love which are more expensive than the Make Up Revolution ones but still very affordable are Real Techniques. These are my every day make up brushes and I wouldn't be without them.

5. Lipsticks - You can't go wrong with throwing a lipstick into a stocking. Again it's a great product and can be adjusted to your budget. If you're after a high end brand, I love Mac's Viva Glam II. For a budget brand, my go to lipstick is NYX Thalia.

6. Hat - I love bobble hats and they can be a great gift idea. I love the ones from Custom Vintage Dublin but Penneys do gorgeous cheaper alternatives.

That's just a few of my ideas! Stay tuned for stocking fillers for him which will be up tomorrow.

We're also doing Vlogmas (vlogging every day until Christmas). You can see our first video below.
