Stocking fillers for fashionistas

13 Nov

Once you’ve got those big-ticket items sorted, it’s time to think about the stocking. But no fashionista’s going to be happy with a satsuma and a bag of chocolate coins (though we’d be sad if they didn’t feature somewhere!), so here’s a few ideas for budget-friendly stocking fillers for the high-street fans in your life…

  1. Sparkly socks


£4, River Island. I’ve already got these amazing sparkly green socks, and every time I wear them people comment on how much they like them. Great for jazzing up trainers and jeans (just roll your jeans up a bit to show them off) or for taking your summer shoes into winter (they looks cute with an open toe). Here I am wearing mine…


Even better, when you buy three pairs of socks from River Island, you save money. So why not get these cute styles, too…


On a similar theme, every fashion lover needs a drawer stuffed full of…

2. Terrific tights

£8, Marks & Spencer. We all buy ourselves black tights, but a real Christmas treat would be a pretty patterned pair like these. You just can’t go wrong with M&S tights!

3. Pants!

In my family, a stocking isn’t a stocking without a few new pairs of pants, and at Topshop they’re 3 for £10. Take your pick from these…

4. A pair of Louboutins… well, Louboutin nail polishes

£36 each, Harvey Nichols. Pricey, yes, but much cheaper than an actual pair of Loubs, and a very covetable present for any girl.

5. Cute hair accessories

£8, Asos. Perfectly pretty. Or for something a little more bling, how about this?

£10, Asos.

6. Jewels!

You can’t beat Z for Accessorize for budget sparkly things. I’d like any of these, from £10…

7. Winter woollies

£20 for the gloves, £16 for the hat, from Fat Face. Cute and snuggly, but also chic thanks to the grey and cream colour palette. Imagine them with a sheepskin coat and a navy cashmere sweater. Perfection!

And finally…

8. A beautiful leather coin purse


£165, Smythson. Ridiculously extravagant for a stocking filler, but too dreamy not to include.

Still to come in my Christmas series… Secret Santa, and what to get for those awkward boys!
