Christmas Gift Guide 2017 – Stocking Fillers


Christmas isn’t Christmas without a stocking over the mantelpiece or at the end of the bed.  Usually they are stuffed with small thoughtful gifts to keep the kids occupied before you actually have to get out of bed.  

This year we have a wonderful array of presents for the stuffing of stockings…

Star Wars Stationary

SH_AC285-8MStar Wars is always huge at Christmas, the series of epic films has such a huge following that it would be unlikely for you to not know someone who loves the franchise.  This year Cross and Sheaffer have a collection of Star Wars themed stationary that any fan would be delighted to open on Christmas morning.

Notebook, Pen and Case

Featuring everyone’s favourite characters from the award winning films, there are three great choices when it comes to picking out of this world stationary for the Star Wars fan in your life.  Whether you prefer R2-D2, Yoda or Darth Vader, there is a notebook, pen and pencil case with your name on it.  

Each of the Shaeffer Star Wars Pop Pens features artwork that depicts each of the above characters, giving the recipient a unique and stylish pen.  Not only do they look good, but they write like a dream – comfortable, precise and with fantastic ink flow, they are a joy to write with.  Each of the three designs are available from Cross for just £16.00 each, the perfect stocking stuffer!

Of course to write you need something to actually write onto and Shaeffer wont let you down as they have a range of matching notebooks to accompany the Pop Pens.  The notebooks are again decorated with beautiful artwork, depicting R2-D2, Yoda and Darth Vader.  The high quality images are not the end of the quality included with these notebooks, they comes with 160 lined pages, each sheet is 100 gsm and are acid free and even have a little keepsake pocket at the back of the notebook.  These fantastic secret keepers are available from £18.00.

To keep all of your Star Wars goodies safe you can even pick up an equally fantastically designed pencil case! 

Rock & Ruddle

DSC_0788A perfect stocking filler for anyone is a hairbrush.  Now you may think that a hairbrush is a little bit of a boring gift to give someone at Christmas, but you would be wrong.   Rock & Ruddle are a fantastic range of hairbrushes with a variety of designs that not only are unique and beautiful, but with so many in the range that there is something to surely suit everyone.

The hairbrushes feature boar bristles which are strong and sturdy, enabling the them to easily brush through hair and detangle as they go, without pulling hair.  They also have natural scales on each individual bristle that release sebum, a natural oil that helps to keep hair looking healthy and full of shine.

The designs are so incredible, that you will find it hard to pick just one! 

Rock & Ruddle brushes are available form their website.
