Sass & Belle
As I’ve mentioned before, Sass & Belle do some of the most amazing little gifts! Their whole online shop is full of gorgeous ideas so I thought I’d share a few of my favourites with you. The little gold pineapple frame is the ideal gift for the super stylish friend with the amazing holiday photos. And I love the simple ‘Follow Your Heart’ design mug which has metallic golden edging.. everyone needs a new mug for Christmas!
Sass & Belle do lots of cute little homewares like this ceramic trinket dish which is only £5. It would make a lovely little stocking filler and there are quite a few different designs to chose from. I am also in love with this adorable jam biscuit cushion keyring, which is handmade from patchwork cotton.. cute!
I always think personalised gifts are great for Christmas presents as they show that thought has gone into the idea. Photo gifts especially are perfect and these days you can get a photo printed onto pretty much anything! Photobox do a range of personalised gifts such as calendars, canvas’s, mugs, and keyrings.
I recently ordered one of their bone china photo mugs for my friend who recently got married. I had one of their wedding photos printed onto the mug on one side, and the other has a beautiful love heart design. What I love most about this mug though is that even the handle is heart shaped.. how cute is that! And to make it that little bit extra special, I have filled it up with festive sweeties! Photobox also have a great video on how to wrap a mug for Christmas using tissue paper, cellophane and ribbon.
For my Mum I ordered her her annual family photo calendar which she always loves. She has it hanging in the kitchen and I order her one every year. Each year I try to fill each month with at least 4 photos of the whole family using different photos from throughout the year. Once the year is over, she keeps the calendar as a little photobook, or cuts the photos out to put into frames. You can pick from a range of seasonal background designs and even add captions to special dates. It’s such a lovely thoughtful gift!
Sleek Make Up
Cosmetics and accessories always make a great stocking filler for those who love make up. This highlighting palette ‘Cleopatra’s Kiss‘ from Sleek MakeUP is beautifully packaged and would make a wonderful little stocking filler. It includes two highly-pigmented and long-lasting baked powders and two luxurious creams in four golden shades. Add some make up brushes to the stocking too and you’re good to go!
I think a Tangle Teezer is pretty much an essential for anyone with long hair. They really are amazing, I have had one of my own for years now and I love it! This special edition design by iconic British designer Lulu Guiness comes with a black case and retro-inspired red lip print. The handbag-friendly compact design is great for use on the go. It detangles and delivers the perfect finish to leve you with smooth hair every time. The ideal stocking filler for any long haired lady!
Make up palettes are always going to be a well received gift, especially those from Urban Decay. They are hugely popular at the moment and UD do a great range of lipstick and eyeshadow palettes, and these make lovely little stocking fillers.
This is the brand new Vice Lipstick Palette in ‘Blackmail’ which includes a dozen creamy lipstick shades from neutral to bright and dark to light. It also comes with two limited edition shades; Junkie and Blackmail. The palette is beautifully designed in a luxurious gunmetal case with gold accents, a full size inner mirror, and even comes with a retractable lip brush. The colours are great for the party season and best of all, they can be mixed together to create a new colour, although there is plenty of variety there already!
