Christmas is almost upon us! But if you’re anything like us, this time of year can be filled with just as much stress as it does merriment. So to save you a mad dash around the High Street on Christmas Eve, we’ve put together a set of Christmas Gift Guides which should have all bases covered when buying for an average Joe. In this guide, we’re talking Stocking Fillers!
Versace Eros 200ml Eau de Toilette
Website: Garment Quarter
While you could buy a load of tat for a stocking, we’d always recommend going quality over quantity. Which is why a fragrance is a great stocking filler at Christmas. We like this Eros Eau de Toilette from Versace. Named after the Greek god of sexual attraction – so you know it’s good – the fragrance is infused with lemon zest, mint leaves and green leaves with undertones of vanilla, oak and cedarwood to create a fresh, woody aroma.
Hershey’s and Reese’s Chocolate
Price: From £4
What stocking would be complete without some chocolate? Well, just in time for Christmas, Reese’s have just released a new range of chocolate and peanut butter treats, with the stand out being their Half Pound Peanut Butter Cups. You read that correctly; giant Peanut Butter Cups. Hershey’s also have plenty on offer this Christmas, including some Cookies n Crème Family Sharing Bags and Selection Boxes.
Helly Hansen LIFA Merino Alpine Socks
Website: Helly Hansen
Socks are a brilliant Xmas gift. We promise. But there are socks, and then there are socks. These LIFA Merino Alpine Socks from Helly Hansen are the latter. Built for the slopes, they combine Merino wool and synthetic fibres for optimal fit. There’s also some strategic merino wool padding under foot, shin, and calf for impact absorption, while nylon reinforcements in the heel and toe give you some extra protection. There’s also some added ankle support.
Thames Hudson Table Books
Price: Prices vary
Website: Thames Hudson
Depending on the size of your stocking, a table book is great idea for fillers. And this Christmas Thames Hudson have a wide range of books available, including Retro Cameras – an accessible, design-led guide to the coolest, most collectible vintage film cameras – and The World According to Karl – a compact collection paying homage to the legendary fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld. No matter your Joe’s tastes and interest, Thames Hudson have something for everyone.
Avengers Mitre Series Matchball Football
OK, so they might not fit into an actual stocking but Mitre’s Avengers: Infinity War footballs are still a great little addition to your present line-up, regardless of size. Inspired by the Marvel Super Heroes, the new range unites Infinity War’s characters, including Black Panther, Spider-Man and Iron Man, with Mitre’s high performance footballs. Available in Scriball and Match Ball.
BullDog Oil Control Gift Set
Very few Joes enjoy buying themselves grooming products, so getting them a gift set for Christmas will always be welcomed. This Christmas, we like the Bulldog Oil Control Duo Set which comes with two grooming essentials to refresh and replenish, without leaving skin greasy or shiny. The Oil Control Moisturiser is a lightweight, fast-absorbing formula that delivers long-lasting hydration without leaving skin feeling greasy, while the Oil Control Face Wash is a daily cleanser that cleanses daily dirt and excess oil from the face.
