The Cutest Stocking Fillers Under £10

Who knew I'd be the one saying Christmas is here?! And we all know gifts are not the most pocket-friendly... but cue these adorable items that are worth the penny and won't starve you for the entire month of January. If I celebrated Christmas, these are some of the things I'd love to see in my Christmas Stocking :-)

(PSA: despite my Christmas eve birthday I'm the least Christmassy person ever/I never grew up celebrating it)

I casually sauntered into the Fresh store in Covent Garden one evening and left with a set of 7 lip tints! After some intense calculations (cue my thinking face), one of these will set you back for less than £6 for 7 of your bestest friends. I've loved using these for the past two weeks, especially with winter – balm and tint in one is my one true love.

They smell gorgeous, and come in the prettiest colours. My favourites so far are Poppy, Fig and Petal!

P/S the staff in the Fresh CG store are also equally lovely, and I spent a great deal of time in there just testing out some cool products :-)

The holiday season can go both ways: glamorous or the laidback kind where you veg out after a full and satisfying meal... either way doing my lashes have never been easier with this magical potion. I've raved about this before so many times and my love for #kbeauty continues it reign.  

They lengthen and really make my ~very very~ small eyes look ~less~ small so it's definitely a big deal for me. I was dubious at first, but man, this is the one, guys. 

For sure a life-saver for my non-existent lashes, so think about what it can do with you lash-lucky peeps? 

I realise this is a bit of a cheat one since I said it was free but it's because it's a counter sample! Perfect for those who don't want to commit to a £48 price tag, it's a great complimentary product which you can get at any Omorovicza store as a trial. It's a mini version of the full size product, but has all the same luxury packaging: glass body, screw cap, and it smells delightful~ 

Your friends will think you've splashed the cash with this, over that £3 hand cream you were going to get instead from Boots. 

I recently had a facial done at Liberty by Omorovicza (and would highly recommend, and also redeemable against their products after it #wishIwaspaidforthis) and they used this during the session. The supercombo of Hungarian Moor mud purifies the skin, while Sweet Almond Oil replenishes and moisturises the skin. 

Speaking of which, I need to pick up some for myself soon... 

I obviously saved the best for last - are these not the cutest things ever?! Firstly, if you know what LINE Friends is (if you don't you should Google it now - actually lmgtfy) you'll love this. Brown, Cony and Sally on a sheet mask?! I died with cuteness. These sheet masks have been making its way round the AB community and so what better way to pop these goodies into a stocking? 

Secondly, and more seriously, the usual suspects are all lined up: hyaluronic acid, ceramides and witch hazel... all the golden ingredients for that post-Turkey feast eh? I got mine from TK Maxx (of all places) but you can get them from Amazon in the link above too :-)

A flower crown for all season - because I don't advocate for all black during winter. It's a great complementary accessory for the full black velvet co-ord you're planning on donning, or just brightens up your day when flowers are scarce in the winter / too expensive to buy weekly *cough bloggers cough*. 

Also I'll have you know that I truly believe my flower crown was the reason we got served a free glass of beer too, it's a total showstopper. In a subtle, cool b0$$ way. 

Let me know what you're planning on filling up in your Christmas stockings!
