Cheap & Trendy Stocking Fillers

The 10 Best Stocking Fillers For Under £45

Is it just me, or was finding a stocking at the end of one’s bed on Christmas morning by far the most exciting part of Christmas as a kid? I looked forward to opening presents from under the tree, but a stocking stuffed with thoughtful tidbits was the most eagerly anticipated. 

And stocking fillers don’t have to exit one’s life at the moment one stops believing in Santa – they are a great idea for everyone of all ages. There can be a temptation to buy a load of crap, but a little homework reveals fun stocking fillers that will last a lot longer than the 12 days of Christmas.

The key is sticking to the mantra “cheap but practical”. Here are my filler ideas – all under £45.
