I’m sure most of us are starting to get fed up with having to buy Christmas presents, it’s a gruelling task. You’ve done your parents and family, hell you may have even done your Secret Santa for that guy at work who you only associate with when you have coinciding lunch breaks! However, there’s that one person left who is a nightmare to buy for, they don’t give you any indication to what they would like and probably respond with don’t be silly, you don’t need to get me anything.
Collectively we secretly hate these people, but nonetheless here is a gift guide of 12 Stocking Fillers which are all under £20 to help you get through the festive season.
1. Phone Cases
Your phone case is an extension of you. Gifting a quirky case is a surprisingly personal present, they’ll see it everyday, probably more than they see you and it’s a reminder that you know their personality and style.
These cartoonish cases are part of a collaboration between Goo.ey and Sophia Webster, they’re super fun and the case is made of a material that sticks onto shiny surfaces which is pretty cool!

2. Suede Gloves
Everybody needs a good pair of gloves this time of the year, they’re a practical present. This year’s biggest trend was the revival of the seventies where suede took to the forefront of every magazine, store and catwalk. The faux suede material on these gloves appears expensive and stylish but also holds a lining for extra warmth. They are the perfect for the fashionista who loves to keep on trend.

3. Makeup Bag
Girls can never have enough makeup bags, it’s just a reason to buy more makeup to fill it! To give a makeup or wash bag a little personality you can always fill it up with little beauty products that the recipient would like!
ASOS have a nice collection in at the minute starting at just £10
4. Statement Belt
This season the seventies are still holding on and one of the most sought out accessories are belts that are being wore around the waist to accentuate the smallest part of the body to give the impression of the enviable hourglass figure. Statement belts brighten any outfit, a quirky fashion-forward friend would love the stylish snakeskin pattern.
ASOS again have this beautiful belt in for just £10
5. Gift Sets
We can all put our hands up and say we’ve bought a gift set as a present because it’s easier but sometimes they are just a great value for money. Loads of new gift sets come out at Christmas, maybe you were going to buy one product but getting a set with a few other bits and pieces might spark a love for something the other person has never tried before. Also it is so much easier!
A safe bet for presents is giving candles, basically everyone loves candles especially in the winter months, burning a candle at night instantly warms up the room and leaves a gorgeous aroma. These cute little candles are so pretty and the packaging is gorgeous, at such an affordable price you might as well buy everyone you know one too!

8. Lip Plumper
A big beauty trend this year has been a plumped lips made famous by the youngest of the Kardashian Klan, Kylie Jenner. Instead of having to over line lips or have lip fillers there is a safe way to have the perfect pout. Soap and Glory’s Pillow Plump is the affordable high street answer to having huge lips, so if you know someone who is a fan over lining their lips this is the perfect present for them!

9. iPad Case
Another idea is a stylish iPad or table case, the envelope appearance screams high fashion or chic office accessories. It’s also possible to use the case as a clutch too as it’s completely versatile, if you know someone who mixes their days working then heading straight out for an evening on the town this could be a great gift.
