Young At Heart: Holiday Stocking Stuffer Ideas For Grownups

by - Friday, October 18, 2013

Remember the excitement on Christmas Day of emptying out your stocking to find lots of small, thoughtful gifts and treats as well as all your main presents? For most of us this was another magical part of the celebrations, so why not carry this tradition on into adulthood? For most of us it’s simply too difficult to find the time to plan these little extras, but with some extra help below, we’re sure you’ll be inspired enough to fill a stocking this year for your nearest and dearest and spread an extra bit of Christmas cheer!

Stocking fillers for her:

  1. A tasty treat in the form of Pink Champagne Truffles [£10] from Hotel Chocolat will spoil your favourite girl from the moment she wakes up on Christmas Day.

  2. A mini bottle of Moët & Chandon gives a lavish and more grown-up feel to a stocking.

  3. Why not add stockings to a stocking? Go all out and get some fabulous House of Holland tights [£12] that your lady may otherwise overlook buying for herself!

  4. Winter warmers like earmuffs, gloves and hats are perfectly sized to fit into a stocking and will surely be welcome in the winter months!

  5. A festive Winter Spice Gel Candle from John Lewis [£20] will get the whole house smelling festive for Christmas Day.

  6. Small items of jewellery or accessories can bring a really personal touch to the stocking you’ve put together. Asos have a huge range of jewellery and watches to choose from including an array of brands and prices to suit any budget.

Stocking fillers for him:

A stocking is the place to put a wonderfully warm pair of socks rather than it being the main event! Head to to find a great selection of wooly slipper socks that will make cozy stocking fillers.

  1. Order a selection of the world’s hottest chilli powders from Not On The High Street [£4.99]. They come in tiny bottles that all fit into a matchbox. The perfect way for your man to test his palate.

  2. Some luxurious hand soap is a simple way to add something special to a stocking. Try Crabtree & Evelyn for a wonderful selection of men’s soaps [£6-£18].

  3. A stylish or even personalised iPhone cover is a small and thoughtful gift that fits perfectly into a Christmas stocking!

  4. Chocolate is often just bought for the ladies but there are plenty of men out there who love a good quality chocolate treat. Hotel Chocolat do a selection of gifts for men. We love their H-Box Nutty Selection [£12.50].

  5. Finally a miniature selection of your man’s favourite tipple is easy to track down either in a specialist shop or in a department store. Around Christmas, gift sets are easy to find!

One final tip… don’t forget to buy a stocking to put all these goodies in! Again, department stores are a good place to look or even your local supermarket.
