With less than a week to go until Christmas, I thought I would give a couple of stocking filler ideas for you lovely lot in case you needed some last minute inspiration. Over the past few weeks I have been shopping around like a headless chicken trying to find that ‘perfect’ gift. Here is my list:
Tipple of Alcohol
For the gin lover in your life you can’t go wrong with a bottle of gin, however their stocking is only so big so I would go for a miniature. Recently I have been gifted with two miniatures from Tiger Gin and Foxhole Gin. Both sending a 5cl bottle, I have yet to sample either as I am waiting for that special occasion to crack them open but their mass followings and great reviews should be enough proof to get behind them and try them out for yourself. If the miniatures are too small they have the full-size bottles too!
Recently collaborating with Murdock London I got the chance to write about their festive hangover special, as part of the collaboration I received one of their signature hair products. The matt mud smells great and performs even better, since getting the product I’ve used it daily and it has held up to the worst winter weather keeping my hairs shape and style all-day. Perfect size for a stocking filler for the guy who loves to keep his hair in top shape all year long
Fragrance for the home
If you haven’t heard of The White Company, you need to get to know them. They specialise in all things white, heavenly and scented. Comparable to the household version of Lush the place smells divine and that’s were the stocking filler comes in. Their home sprays are amazing, receiving one as a gift last Christmas I have used it throughout the year and still have and use it all the time. The one I have is the Fir and Berry spray, however they have a new Christmas range out now so give one of those a try this year!
Wireless Gym Sessions
Maybe not the most budget friendly stocking filler but if you can afford to I would go with a pair of wireless headphones / earphones if you or your significant other is a gym go-er. I used to used wired earphones and since switching to wireless headphones I wouldn’t go back. I’d love a pair of Beats by Dre but they are a bit out of my price range so I went for a cheaper option in the Sony wireless headphones, which are perfect for the purpose of a couple of gym sessions per week.
Anything from the Gruum Range
Since collaborating with Gruum a month or two ago I have used their products daily, the face scrub in the shower, the moisturiser in the mornings and their razor and shave gel when I need to get rid of the hair on my face. I love the fragrances used in their products and would definitely recommend picking up a couple of their products for any male stocking!
A Cool Looking Journal
Ideas need to be jotted down, the same goes for shopping lists, gym workouts and just about everything else that needs one step further than a mental note. I would recommend getting yourself / the fella in question a simple and clean journal. I got mine from Søstrene Grene (a scandi version of Tiger) for dirt cheap, other places like Paperchase, Waterstones or John Lewis are also good shouts.
So there you have it, my stocking filler ideas for guys, hopefully some ideas spark some ideas of your own or you could just outright copy the items I have mentioned – I won’t mind…much. A bit last minute but I know there’s plenty of people out there that get a sick kick out of shopping last minute so here you go!
