So, it's finally the last instalment of my Winter Wonderland series and i thought i'd finish off with Stocking Fillers as i always find that's the hardest thing to buy for - if you do the stocking route, with your family or with your friends.

The thing i love about stocking stuffers is you can go a little out there with your purchases. It's traditional to choose things that are a bit different and, of course, are in diddy sizes. My favourite ideas for stockings is the great travel range from Soap & Glory. They do some of their best sellers in little sizes. Their Hand Maid is used by many and is great to keep in your handbag, or if you'd like something a little nicer why not pick up a little body spray. They have a selection of scents and they're all delicious! Sticking with the toiletries branch, the Body Shop sell some amazing hand creams. There's a selection of them for different skin types and the almond one is perfect for a range of different people.

Something that i love for putting into stockings, or even secret santa ideas for your friends, are novelty gifts. Hawkin's Bazaar is great for these little bits and bobs: something that i used to love was their growing Christmas trees. All you do is add a little water, and wait. The previously naked stick that sits in the container begins to grow green fluff all over it. It's pretty cool and lasts a little while, so is great to decorate with too! Something else a little crafty and Christmassy is this Christmas Origami set. It contains the paper and instructions to make some great decorations for the festive period. You could string them into garlands and make great wall hangings for your room.

Foody gifts always go down well and who doesn't love Jelly Belly! This great set comes with samples from five of it's best collections, giving your giftee to try lots of things at once. Charbonnel et Walker chocolates are always a great gift, especially as they're packaged so beautifully. They comes in plenty of sizes, shapes and flavours so you're sure to find something for everyone.

These are just a few suggestions of gifts, what do you like to find in your stocking?
