The Beauty Stocking Filler Gift Guide

(Features press samples & affiliate links - see disclaimer)

It's day two of my beauty-focused gift guides to take you from Secret Santa to stocking fillers as well as big beauty gifts galore for your nearest and dearest. There's something for every budget, you'll notice a lot of my go-to beauty brands feature which you would've seen on my blog over the last few years and there are some new faves - I'm excited and I hope you are too.

Next up... The Beauty Stocking Filler Gift Guide!

Award-winning British stationery, gifting and lifestyle brand Alice Scott has launched a trio of Christmas gift sets as well as some smaller stocking fillers for this Christmas. Starting with the Alice Scott Vegan Nail Brush (£3.00) which is a must-have for beauty lovers to keep those nails super clean. It's pure cactus bristle with a wooden handle so it's great for in the bathroom. 

The Alice Scott Body Polisher (£2.00) and Alice Scott Double-Sided Washcloth (£3.00) are also available and make great fillers for any gender. 

It's not Christmas without Sanctuary Spa and the wellness and beauty brand has such a huge selection of gifts available this year. The Sanctuary Spa Night-Time Rescue (£10.00) contains two of their best-selling natural sleep aids - the multi-purpose Wellness Sleep Mist and the De-Stress Warming Body Balm. Perfectly sized for relaxation on the go so giving the gift of good quality sleep is a doddle!

If you're looking for something a little smaller then The Sanctuary Spa Hand & Nail Duo (£4.00) is perfect for pampering hands and nails. It contains their bestselling rich hand cream and a handy nail file to keep those nails in check. Just massage this non-greasy, nourishing cream into hands throughout the day for velvety soft skin. 

How cute is the cracker design?

My mum has been putting hand sanitiser in our stockings (yes we still get one!) for as long I can remember but there's never quite been a selection like the ones available from Let's Sanitise before! With a choice of scents to please everyone plus moisturising glycerol and soothing aloe vera, the perfectly scented antibacterial gel makes the ideal addition to any stocking. 

The Let's Sanitise Luxe Trio Mini Gel Set (£21.99) features three 60ml bottles in Oud Noir Gel, Oud Blanc Gel and Sandalwood & Lemongrass which is my personal fave. They're 75% Ethanol, kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses, vegan friendly; made in the UK and World Health Organisation Approved. You can also buy them individually in scents such as Lavender, Watermelon, Peach and Mixed Berry. 

Perfect if you know someone that finds most hand sanitisers too strong. 

I find compact mirrors are so great to have to hand and if you're looking for something a little more special then this Paul & Joe Beauty Mirror (£20.00) is perfect! It's medium-sized, flat so great for someone's handbag and it comes with a beautifully soft pouch to store it in.

You'll want to whip this out to use all the time! I'm obsessed with how beautiful the inside is. 

Temple Spa have such a huge gifting range this year that you'd be hard-pressed not to find something to gift to a loved one. Available from their Lovely Little Treats range is a handful of gifts perfect for stockings or for hanging on your tree. 

The Lip Thirst-Aid Tree Decoration (£15.00) contains their much loved Nourishing Lip Oil full of skin goodness, lip nourishment and a rosy glow shine. The rich formula gives lips a cocoon of nourishment perfect for the winter months making it such a great idea for mum or any beauty lover aunts. 

If you're looking for a beautiful, vegan skincare brand then let me introduce you to Nourish Skincare! I shared a blog post called Five Products from Nourish London you should try recently and they have some fab Christmas gift sets available right now. 

The Nourish London Antioxidant Duo (£15.00) features The Antioxidant Multi-Tasking Super Balm and the Antioxidant Peptide Mist - two of my favourite products. The balm works as a cleanser, mask and intensive moisturiser while the mist is great as a make-up primer, hydrating skin protector and night-time soothing skin repair boost. 

Instantly giftable in a handy reusable fair trade organic cotton bag, handmade by Freeset, the micro-skincare regime makes a perfect stocking filler, Secret Santa or caring gift for a friend or colleague.

Dr PAWPAW has been firmly within my beauty routine for a number of years and they're one of the best lip products to use during the winter months! They have some great sets this year but two in particular caught my eye. The Dr PAWPAW Sleeping Beauty (£16.00) kit contains one of their newer products, the Overnight Lip Mask which I adore and use all the time as well as the Scrub & Nourish 2-in-1 Lip Scrub designed to exfoliate and nourish and a sleep mask. 

Perfect stocking filler right?

The other is the Dr PAWPAW Classic Beauty Gift Collection (£10.00) which includes three of their best-selling lip balms. If you want to see more head to this post - Dr PAWPAW Balms & Why you need to try them.

Yardley has specialised in cosmetics, fragrances and toiletry products since 1770 so they're kinda a classic brand to see at Christmas - I know I've opened many luxury soap gifts over the years. There are a plethora of gift sets from Yardley available from Boots UK this year including the Yardley Traditional Body Fragrance Collection (£6.00), Yardley Luxury Soap Collection (£6.00) and the Yardley English Lavender Mini Hand Collection.

Perfect for stockings or Secret Santa!

Finally, we have my favourite makeup brush brand, Spectrum Collections. Ideal for stockings, I'll share two of my top picks for the beauty lover in your life. First up is my favourite brush (probably, ever - I have five!) for applying my foundation - Spectrum Collections B01 Flat Top Buffer Brush (£8.99). The buffing brush is perfect for lightly buffing liquid foundation onto the skin leaving a beautifully even finish. 

It's great for stippling powder onto shiny and oil-prone areas of the face too. 

Keeping with base tools, the Spectrum Collections Oceana 2 Piece Sponge Set (£9.99) is great for stippling products over the forehead, cheeks and chin, while the pointed tip allows for precise application to the eyes and other hard-to-reach areas. I'd be very pleased to find these in my stocking this year. 

If anything has caught your eye, you can shop for all the products via the links throughout the post. Let me know what you pick up.
