The big presents are sorted, but what of the dreaded stocking? Striking a balance between ‘haha, that’s hilarious’, and ‘oh wow, that’s amazing’ is a harder to pull off than getting the Christmas dinner timings right (dry turkey and hard carrots, anyone?). Adding one or two genuinely useful gifts to a selection of sweet treats and funny gag gifts is the easiest way to ensure the stocking is a success. We’ve rounded up some of this year’s best stocking fillers for adults, so you can be sure you’re giving them a relaxing Christmas with a side of well-deserved pampering.
The Best Stocking Fillers – Christmas 2015
This little mini massager is designed to work on dreaded orange peel skin, but also works effectively for easing aches and muscle pain after a grueling workout. It’s small enough to take with you on the go, so you can pop it in your suitcase when traveling or in your gym bag. The Beurer Cellulite Massager provides a kneading massage that helps to flush out toxins, boost circulation and improve the appearance of cellulite – and it’s also great for easing the aches and pains of leg day.
There are so many Clarisonic brush heads available for so many different needs! And every Clarisonic owner will tell you they’re rubbish at replacing their brush heads on time. Although the brushes may look fine, over time the tips of the bristles become worn and flattened, resulting in a less effective clean – not to mention the hygiene aspect! Pop one of these brush heads in their stocking and we’re sure they’ll be delighted!
This Talika Heated Eyelash Curler is the perfect addition to any makeup bag. There’s only so much mascara can do – at some point, you have to accept that a decent eyelash curler is needed to get that all-important eye-opening curl. If you know someone who’s had more eyelash curlers than hot dinners, we’re sure they’ll find their match with the Talika Heated Eyelash Curler. It’s incredibly simple to use, and keeps the curl in place all day!
You may have heard the old wives tale that sleeping on a cotton pillowcase will give you wrinkles – turns out, this one is true! Cotton just isn’t great for the complexion and can dehydrate your skin throughout the night by leeching out all of the moisturising goodness you slathered on before bed. What’s the solution? This copper-infused eye mask from iluminage is the perfect way to combat ageing while getting some shut eye. The copper in this super-silky soft sleep mask is scientifically proven to fight the signs of ageing – more information on the science part here.
How about giving someone a lifetime of back rubs in their stocking? That’s precisely what you’ll be doing with the Beurer Massage Pillow. This handy little pillow uses four pressure points to deliver a shiatsu massage when you most need it. It can be used on the neck, back or legs, and it’s small enough to take with you anywhere. Did someone say cheeky office massage? Pop this little massage pillow in their stocking and they’ll be completely blissed out by Boxing Day.
