Last Minute Stocking Filler Ideas!

Today's post is my last Christmas Gift Guide (sob!) I really enjoy writing these and planning what to include and also working with some fab brands and featuring their lovely Christmas gifts too. I hope you've liked my gift guides this year. This one is for all you last-minute gift buyers!
I Heart Makeup Chocolate Eyeshadow Palettes From £7.99
First up is the Chocolate Eyeshadow Palettes from I Heart Makeup. I think these are such great quality for the price and the packaging is so nice. There are some really great dupes including the Chocolate Elixir palette being very close to the ABH Modern Renaissance and also the Chocolate and Peaches palette is a total dupe for the Too Faced Sweet Peach palette and yes, they do smell a little like chocolate. I *think* the new Chocolate Orange palette looks quite similar to the Naked Heat Palette too!

LUSH Bath Bomb
You can't go wrong with a bath bomb at Christmas or well, any time of the year. As long as the recipient has a bath, obvs. My favourite is the Shoot For The Stars bath bomb because it puts on such a show as soon as you pop it in your bath and it smells like honey and I'm just obsessed with it.

Stationery - Coral Fowley*
Stationery is a great stocking filler. I may be 23 now but I get so excited at Christmas when I receive notebooks and planners and so on. I love this notebook and also weekly planner from Coral Fowley who designs all of her products. The weekly planner is so handy and I'm trying not to use it until we're in the new year! I feel like over the past month or so, my usual organised self has gotten a little bit frazzled and I'm just not as organised and I really want to start being better at organising and planning things out. As well as notebooks and weekly planners there are also art prints, a notepad and badges available too.

Keeping it short and very sweet. You can't go wrong with chocolate!

I think diaries and calendars are fab little gift even though to some people they may be a little boring, they are just essentials (like socks and underwear!). My diary for next year was only £1 from Poundland and it's so cute.

The Body Shop Frosted Berries Body Butter*
I think gifts from The Body Shop are always a good way to go if you're unsure of what to buy for someone. I love the limited edition ranges they release for the Christmas season. This year they have Frosted Berries, Vanilla Chai and Frosted Plum on offer  - all of them smell lovely in my opinion. I think body butter is a great idea for a stocking filler because we all get dry skin in winter so a lovely, Christmassy scented body butter is always welcome.

Lipstick is always a good last minute present. As I mentioned in my previous gift guide, the Joan Collins Timeless Beauty Lipsticks* are really great and they look so pretty because of their gold classic-looking packaging too.

Body Mists
I have a few favourites which I've been loving this year which are super affordable and look cute too. The So...? Body Mists* are really nice and there are lots of different scents available and the Body Fantasies body mists from Superdrug are lovely too. I've also noticed a lot of people talking about the new Impulse body mists as well but I haven't actually got around to trying them out yet.

Trinket Dish
I basically hoard trinket dishes because you can never have too many. I tend to wear quite dainty necklaces and small stud earrings so having trinket dishes around the house is handy and they make cute little gifts. I tend to pick them up on ASOS, Boohoo or at B&M for less than £10.

 I had to include candles didn't I? I bloody love getting candles. I actually got that many last year, I'm still using them up! You can get some lovely festive scented candles from Asda, Home Bargains, B&M and H&M right now.
