1. Crabtree and Evelyn Handcare Trio (Festive Gift Box)
Crabtree & Evelyn’s Christmas range is very impressive. It has lots of wonderful products that encapsulate the spirit of Christmas. I will be featuring one of their beautiful gift sets in the Christmas gift guide for 'her' but in the meantime here is a lovely little treat that makes an excellent stocking filler. The Festive Hand Therapy Trio (£15.00) contains three Shea butter enriched skin nourishing treats. There are three variants in the box - Rose Pineapple, Festive Fig and Spiced Earl Grey - all of them beautiful festive fragrances. This would make a much appreciated gift for anyone who loves luxury treats. More here: www.crabtree-evelyn.co.uk
2. Beatles Limited Edition Notebook
Know a lover of stationery? Then the Beatles Limited Edition Notebook Collection commemorating The Beatles’ iconic hit, Yellow Submarine, would make a good gift choice. Celebrating the artistic contribution of the Beatles, the artists as well as the animators involved in the Yellow Submarine movie, the notebooks feature psychedelic graphics on the cover and include a special Beatlesmania sticker set which have each been carefully designed as a tribute to the pop culture of the 60’s. Prices start from £14.95 for a pocket size notebook and the five piece limited edition notebook collection is available in store and online at Moleskine.com/thebeatles.
3. Nelsons Arnicare Bath and Massage Balm And Cooling Gel
Nelsons products are holistic, arnica based products that target a number of conditions. I have used many of their products over the years and like the fact that they make use of natural ingredients and essential oils. The bath and massage balm is a dual-purpose product - - you can massage it into aching, stiff muscles to soothe tension or simply add it to running water for a luxurious bath. With Evening Primrose and rich Sweet Almond oil to naturally hydrate the skin and Lavender and Grapefruit essential oils to help calm senses and relax the mind.
The Cooling Gel combines the benefits of Arnica with the refreshing sensation of natural Grapefruit oil and Menthol to soothe and cool the skin. It is perfect for rubbing into aching muscles or to revive tired legs after being on your feet all day.
Both these products would be a perfect presents for use after a busy Christmas. You can buy them online from Nelsons Homeopathic Pharmacy and retailers like Boots, Amazon, Superdrug etc.
4. Cadbury Chocolates
Nothing says Christmas like chocolates and Cadbury chocolates are kind of synonymous with Christmas. Cadbury have a number of chocolate gift boxes and hampers on offer. And they also have interesting stocking selection boxes, Milk Chocolate tree decorations, Dairy Milk Santa, Dairy Milk Oreo Gift Ball, Dairy Milk Buttons Tube and Dairy Milk Freddo Faces Tube. These would make lovely additions as stocking fillers. Check out the entire range here: www.cadburygiftsdirect.co.uk
5. Beauty Pro Collagen Masks
For the beauty/skincare lover, Collagen sheet masks from Beauty Pro would make a wonderful stocking filler idea. The collagen sheet masks are cut to the shape of the face and are ready to use. Infused with marine collagen, combined with key vitamins, herbs and botanicals the masks help to improve skin tone and complexion. I have used two of their collagen masks - Brightening and Rejuvenating masks - and loved both. The former is great at improving skin tone and adding a healthy glow while the latter is helpful in combating oily t-zones and at the same time moisturising dry areas of the face.
Beauty Pro also have other masks like nourishing sheet mask, detoxifying foaming mask, under eye patches etc. Check them out here: www.beautypro.com
6. Irals Pearl Multi Flower Jewellery Piece
Irals, who sell unique jewellery pieces made in Brazil, would be a lovely addition to any stocking. Irals attach to flip flops, beach wear, dress straps, sandals, bags etc. and instantly up the style quotient. They have three collections - petite, classic and luxury - all of them beautifully designed and adding the glam factor to your overall look. I have the pearl multiflower Iral which is from the luxury collection and it is a perfect accessory for evening dresses. You can check out the entire collection here: irals.co.uk

Dove needs no introduction. I am sure most, if not all, of you would have used one or the other luxurious skincare products from Dove.

The DermaSpa Goodness range includes body oil (£9.99), body crème (£7.99), hand crème (£4.99) and body lotion (£5.99) - all of which promise to give luminous and velvety soft, spa quality skin.
