Budget-friendly stocking fillers for her
It's time to start ticking off your list! Luckily, Muddy's done the hard work for you - here are the best stocking fillers for under £20, all available from The Indie Store.
GREEN WITH ENVY
Beauty bits always go down a storm in a stocking, and this Christmas-tree-green nail polish in festive Emerald is one of our faves for winter. Pick it up from Pure Source in Cambridgeshire.
Add a little sparkle to her Christmas Day outfit with these geometric star earrings from Hampshire retailer Stary Eyed. Added bonus: they come in both gold and silver, so they’ll suit everyone.
Give the gift of relaxation this Christmas with this elegant glass bottle of bath soak from Oxfordshire’s ilā spa. It’s made with vetivert, petitgrain and apricot for the ultimate soothing scent. Bliss.
If you’re from the school of thought that stocking fillers should be practical (did anyone else get toothbrushes as a child, or is that just me?), then these nifty tweezers from The Bean Hive, Northamptonshire, are a perfect budget buy.
It’s always nice to find a little festive tipple in your stocking, and we’ll be gifting this delicious Rhubarb and Raspberry Gin from Berkshire Botanicals to a lucky few this season.
IN THE BAG
Upgrade their toiletries bag with this quilted velvet number from Stuff & Co in Sussex. I’m partial to this apple green shade, but it also comes in dusty rose, black, blue and taupe.
INTO THE WOODS
Dreaming of spring already? St Eval Candles in Cornwall have a range of incredible scents, but this fabulously floral Bluebell Wood number will make the house feel like May all year round.
BESIDE THE SEA
This quirky shipping forecast tea towel from Tabitha Mary in Bedfordshire would look right at home in any kitchen, nautical or not. Pick one up for the home cooks (and Radio 4 fans) in your life.
If ever there’s a year to share this advice, it’s 2020 – and how can you look at that cute little face and not feel cheered up over a cuppa? Buy yours from Angela Reed, Essex.
If you know someone who’s become a houseplant addict in lockdown (or whose green thumb could use a little polishing), this book from Ginger Zebra in Devon is an ideal gift to help them brush up.
AND NOW TO SLEEP
2020 insomnia is a thing, so anything that calms the mind and encourages those ZZZs is likely to be a hit. All my friends are getting a tin of this organic Sleep Balm from Leicestershire’s The Home of Handmade this Christmas.
It’s not Christmas without chocolate, and these Spiced Rum Truffles from Newbold Spirit in Warwickshire are infused with a little extra festive spirit. Expect them to be snaffled by 10am.
