Christmas: Gift Guide (Male|Stocking Fillers)

Standard

 For today’s gift guide I want to show you some potential stocking fillers for under £10. This one is going to lean more towards male appropriate gifts but that isn’t to say that you can’t buy a female some of these2 things. To be honest, I pretty much love everything in this blog post for myself and I’m a girl. If you want to see my l1ast three gift guides, from Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, just scroll down on the home page. To find the items I’m recommending, click the orange links that will be displayed on certain words.

Wilko’s have a really great Christmas range this year and so I’m going to be recommending quite a few products from them. Let’s start with the Urban Boom Box Speaker for £10. It works with any smartphone and is shaped like an 80’s boom box, hence the name. In the same ‘Urban’ range is this USB Light for £5 which comes in the shape of a stage light.

For the DIY king, you may 3want to get your male relative or friend the Mr Multi-4 Tool (‘compiled of 1x pliers, wire cutter, serrated blade, handy knife, flat head & cross head screwdriver with LED torch’) for only £3. From the same ‘Classic Gentlemen’ range you could also buy a Mini Pool Table for £5.

For the aspiring writers you may feel like a journal is the best 6stocking filler, I’ve found one, A6 in size, from Debenham’s for £8. Alternatively,  for when they fee5l stuck with writer’s block or just want a good rage you could give them Wreck this Jou7rnal (‘to create is to destroy’) for £6.29 from Waterstones.

For the more fashionable of men, you may want to buy them this edgy Urban Male Black Leather Necklace with Feather Skull Pendants for £6.74 from Tesco Direct.

Next, this item from IWOOT is quite simple but will provide hours of fun. It is Tetris Magnets – perfect for those of us who are easily entertained or for those who want to leave interesting images on their fridge door8s for their house mates. 9

Finally, my last stocking filler is the Lynx Attract Duo Pack since every gift guide needs an example of this years bath/fragrance stuff. The one I found is from Wilko’s for £3.65.

Hopefully, this has helped you if you want something fun and affordable to put into your friends and relatives’ stockings.

Christmas: Gift Guide (Female|Stocking Fillers)

Standard

For today’s gift guide I want to show you some potential stocking fillers for under (or just around) £10. This one is going to lean more towards female appropriate gifts but that isn’t to say that you can’t buy a male some of these things. If you want to see my last two gift guides, from Monday and Tuesday, just scroll down on the home page. To find the items I’m recommending, click the orange links that 1will be displayed on certain words. 2

 I’m going to start with jewellery. I’ve found some really great jewellery on the Tesco Direct website and this Pink Resin ‘Apple’ Pendant is adorable. It is such a perfect stocking gift for only £4.10.

For girls and women, make-up is usually a staple for the stockings. I have quite a few 3examples to show you: The Barbara Daly Eyeshadow Bon Bons for £3.75 which contains some really nice neutral eyeshadows. Next, Bd Trade Secrets Eyeliner Pencil, an ‘ultra blendable’ eyeliner pencil for only £2.99. If you haven’t got an angled eyeliner brush, you are really missing out and the So Eco Angled Eyeliner Brush seems perfect to fill that gap in your brush collection. My final make-up stocking filler is the Maybelline Colossal Mascara Cat Eyes, a great voluminous mascara for £4.99.4

If giving bath sets and fragrances as a main gift isn’t your thing, perhaps buying your loved ones these stocking fillers will do instead. First I have found two lovely looking sets from The Body Shop: One is the Frosted Cranberry Treat Box (Shower Gel, Body Butter and a Bath Lily) for £7 and the other is the Japanese Cherry Blosom Mini Gift Set (Eau De
Toilette and a Body Lotion) for £8. Moving onto perfume, I’m recommending the Revlon Charlie White Eau de Toilette Spray since I really love the Charlie body sprays. This perfume costs only £5. Another perfume I found is the Accessorize Passion Eau De Toilette for £5.33.

For those of a more accessory-liking attitude,6 there is the Pink Funky 7Floral Headband (£4.95) and Black Knitted Pom Pom Hat (£4.99). Both of these are from Debenhams.

Many women like their candles, perhaps a massive generalisation, but hey, how can you not love this super stylish candle set of Fragranced Votive Candles? They look like great decorations, I bet they smell 8delicious too and they only cost £10.

 The last couple of things are a bit more exciting, for me anyway, and I think they’ll be great as unusual stocking fillers. The first is a set of Nail Varnish Shaped Highlighters from IWOOT. Stylish and fun. The last thing I’m going to recommend are these Glass Photo Coasters which come over the £10 price slightly at £11.49.9 ‘These fantastic Glass Photo Coasters will make enjoying a cuppa that little bit more personal. The Glass Photo Coasters are a novel way of displaying your favourite snaps.’

Christmas: Gift Guide (Male|More Expensive)

Standard

Today’s gift guide is going to consist of some more expensive gifts with a male orientation. This doesn’t mean, of c1ourse, that some of the gifts can’t be given to women. To see the gift guide for Males but with less expensive gifts visit my blog again on Thursday. To find the items I’m recommending, click the orange links that will be displayed on certain words. Enjoy!

Males are often notoriously hard to buy for because it’s not as simple as buying an eye shadow palette or a necklace. Typically men also buy2 what they want when they want it. But I’m here to offer you a starting point. You can take my ideas for your brother, father, son, nephew, best friend – any male you need to buy a holiday present for but have no idea what. When it comes to males think gaming, gadgets, watches, tablets, grooming and experiences.3

 Let’s start with gaming, since all of my male friends right now are raving about all the new consoles and games that have come out recently. I have found three console bundles that may help you if you need inspiration for presents for your male friend 4or relative: First, the Mario Kart Wii U Console Bundle for £235. The second bundle is a PlayStation 4 Grand Theft Auto 5 Bundle for £339. My last bundle is the most exciting in my opinion, and it is the Xbox One Special Edition Sunset Overdrive Bundle for £349. All of these can be found for these prices on the Tesco Direct website.

For a similar price, you could buy your male friend or relative a 16gb, iPad Mini 3 for between £319 and £399. 5

 All men need to shave so you could buy this super stylish set, The Modern Gent’s Shaving Kit, from The Body Shop for £25. It contains Macaroot Shaving Cream, Razor Relief and a Shaving Brush. In addition to buying a present, you’ll be 6providing a child with the money to go to class: ‘The Body Shop is teaming up with War Child, the global charity for children affected by war, to grant children the wish of education. Every specially selected gift you buy, no matter how big or small, will enable a child in a country affected by war to attend a class.’ Alternatively, you could buy a fragrance such as the 7MontBlanc Emblem Eau De Toilette, £24.65 for 40ml from Feel Unique.

For fashion, you could buy this Herschel Heritage Backpack in Dusty Blush Colourblock for £55 from ASOS or this super trendy Red Doubled Sided Check Woven Scarf for £14 from TOPMAN.  You could 8even buy your friend or relative a Pebble Steel Smartwatch for £179.95 from Argos, if you wanted to spend that much.

For another gadget idea10, you could buy a 3 in 1 Powerbank, Torch and Handwarmer for £17.99 from IWOOT which is ‘designed to work universally on any phone’.

From Urban Outfitters, I have found the Globe Bantam ST 23 Inch Skateboard for £75 – this is a personal favourite of mine from this gift guide.

Lastly, if you are struggling to find the perfect gift, why not try finding the perfect experience? Tesco Direct offers several, from driving (from £38) to paint balling (£15).

Hopefully, this has helped you if you are still struggling finding something for your male friends and relatives.
