I've just made a list of what I think to be my top 10 stocking fillers for CHRISTMAS 2011.
One Day by David Nicholls
You can buy it at any bookshop or online.
The best price is on Amazon at £3.69 for a new copy (save £4.30) http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/0340896981/ref=pd_lpo_k2_dp_sr_1?pf_rd_p=103612307&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=0340896965&pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_r=07GVRXDRKDE07BECEBBJ
Everyone loves a good book, especially in winter, and this book is a really good read! I've read it twice and each time I've loved it! If you don't know what 'One Day' is about: it's a love story about 2 young adults that meet on their graduation night and the book revisits that day of their lives for the next few years. This book has just been made into a brilliant film starring Anne Hathaway as one of the main characters 'Emma'.
Hollister Laguna Beach Body Spray
It is £10 or you can buy 2 items from the same range for £14.
This is quite a girly smell if I'm honest, but it is my favorite of the Hollister body sprays. It's got quite good 'staying power' and I use it a lot after P.E.
Vintage Stamps from Anthropologie.
The stamp set costs £5.
In the set you get 50 stamps which are all 10cm square.
Perfect for a stamp collector or just for an amazing gift! I'm not a stamp collector but I would buy these any day! Show your worldliness with souvenirs from around the globe without leaving the comfort of your home.
As I've said in a previous post, Anthropologie only has 3 shops in the UK so If you live in the UK it's likely that you will have to order online. However when you do order online the item comes beautifully packaged.
Cath Kidston Bird Charm Bracelet
Can be bought for £30 from Cath Kidston.
This is probably the most expensive item on the list and I was debating whether or not to class it as a 'stocking filler' as it was quite expensive but I put it in the list because it was small :) This bracelet would make any wrist or hand look elegant with the dainty chain and elegant birds.
Paperchase Butterfly Journal
£8.75 at Paperchase.
This journal has blank pages so can be used for anything: writing a diary, drawing, painting, important dates, etc.
Everyone needs a notebook and this is one of my favorites!
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
The book can be bought from any book shop or online, again, the cheapest is on Amazon for £4.55 (£3.44 cheaper).
This is an amazing read and is soon to be coming out as a movie starring Emma Watson as 'Sam'.
In my opinion, its a book for readers 12+ because of some 'sexual' content. However my 10 year old sister has read it and she found it ok. The book is about a boy in America who has to tackle all the different elements of growing up.
Jack Wills Bootham socks
£14.50 at Jack Wills.
EVERYONE NEEDS a pair of socks for Christmas, it just wouldn't be Christmas without them! So instead of some boring sold socks from Tesco why not buy these exciting, comfy socks from Jack Wills? These are on my personal Christmas list at the moment and I am looking forward to getting them on Christmas morning.
Cath Kidston 2012 Diary
£10 at Cath Kidston or many other bookshops.
Like socks, everyone also needs a diary for the New Year. These diaries have beautiful patterns and also patterned printed pages.
OPI 'Rainbow Connection' nail polish from the Muppets Collection.
£10.50 at most retailers.
I ADORE this colour and I think I might have to buy it before Christmas as it is so colourful and perfect for the party season!
Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2.
Preorder £8.47 from Amazon.
The movie will arrive just in time for Christmas on the 2nd December in the UK and 11th November in The USA. I don't think I'll be able to wait fr Christmas for this, so it's not going to be in my stocking! After all, it is the movie of the year!!! Everyone, who is anyone has to have this on DVD!!!!
So thanks for reading, please comment with ideas for more posts and what you want for Christmas!
