They say the best things come in small packages, right? Stock up on these fabulous fillers and you'll be making the opening of Christmas stockings the event of the day.
1. A soap
These novelty ones by Go La La are new to Daisy Park this year and have been really popular because they are just so funny. They're just such a brilliant gift for someone with a cheeky and childish sense of humour. Alternatively, the English Soap Company's Christmas or Kew Gardens soaps are a lovely alternative with a gorgeous range of scents.
Would it be Christmas without receiving a pair of socks? Powder socks are great choice here, with both Men and Womens socks available in some bright and beautiful designs, or their popular alphabet socks for something a bit more personal.
3. A password book
Perhaps a little random, yes, but password books are one of those products you don't know you need until you see it in front of you. It's not so likely your loved ones have one of these or would have thought of them so this could be a great little gift that's super handy. We particularly love these mini ones by SMW Gifts.
4. An East of India trinket
Whether it be a trinket dish, a token matchbox, tealight holder or a simple hanging heart, East of India goodies are perfect for popping in a stocking. They'll add a touch of sentiment which always goes down well (particularly at Christmas), and provide a cute little keepsake for your loved ones to have forever.
5. Hand sanitiser or cream
Still very appropriate and an essential for everyone these days, we believe you can never have enough hand sanitiser or hand cream. With the lovely ones we have from English Soap Co or Heathcote & Ivory, your friends and family will not only have hands as soft and clean as possible, but will be smelling divine at the same time.
6. A keyring
A great go-to and somewhat of a timeless classic of a stocking filler, need we say more? These novelty ones are just brilliant, there's one to suit everyone.
7. Pocket tissues
Possibly another classic? With the adorable range of prints we have, a packet of pocket tissues is actually such a sweet stocking filler idea. Plus, they might come in handy for those winter sniffles or Christmas rom-com blubbers.
8. Bookaroo stationery bits
Pen holders, phone pockets or reading lights, Bookaroo by If has some great bits and bobs that were practically made to be stocking fillers. We love the idea of a pen holder and pen as a double duo, or the really handy phone pocket.
9. Jewellery, a brooch or a pin
The perfect example of 'the best things come in small packages', earrings will pop into a stocking nicely and will be sure to go down well. Or, for something a bit different, why not give a brooch by Erstwilder? Or a pin which is a bit smaller and subtler, such as the Erstwilder ones or Gisela Graham festive ones.
10. A Christmas decoration
Perhaps they've recently moved house and are re-doing their Christmas tree, or maybe you just want to give them something they can use over again year upon year, a Christmas decoration is actually a lovely gift, and we've got plenty of gorgeous ones to choose from.
So there we have it, our top 10 stocking fillers for this Christmas. We've got plenty of bits and bobs to choose from that are all perfect for stocking fillers, just have a little look for yourself on our website or by popping in to the shop.
Whether it's our dad, grandad, brother or husband, many of us have that man in our life that we simply can't shop for. Maybe he's really fussy? Has expensive taste? Or simply already has everything?
Whatever it might be, we're sure there will be something you can get him. Read on for some ideas big and small, and one of them might just spark that light bulb moment you're waiting for.
1. A Chilly's bottle
Chilly's bottles are a great gift for pretty much anyone and everyone, of all ages. Simple and stylish in design, they can look effortlessly cool whilst also being practical and useful. Or if they've already got a bottle, why not add to their collection and treat them to a thermal coffee cup which are just as nice?
2. An Asta Barrington tray
If the man in your life is someone who likes to host, why don't you give them a tray to serve the beers on? Or a tray that features their favourite tipple of choice.
3. A bottle opener
These Austin Sloan bottle openers are a must-have for man caves. It simply wouldn't be complete without one, don't you think?
Getting men socks for Christmas seems to have become somewhat of a tradition over the years, so carry it on in style with a pair of Powder socks for men. They come in some fabulously bright and busy designs and even have their own free gift bag to save you the hassle of wrapping it up.
5. An Emma Bridgewater mug
If in doubt, go for a mug. In our opinion, you can never have too many (mainly because there's too many nice mugs that come into the shop all the time). If the man in your life is someone who enjoys a cuppa, then a mug such as the Emma Bridgwater Shoreline Scattered Boats mug might be a lovely one if they also like the sea or sailing.
6. Bookaroo stationery
If he has an office job or is a student that's always in need of pens and rulers, then pretty much anything from Bookaroo by If is a great stocking filler gift. The notebook tidies are ideal for preventing them losing pens, or the notebooks are simple yet sleek in design for notes and planning.
7. A Hinza Bag
The idea of getting the man in your life a bag might seem an odd one to some at first, but a Hinza bag really is one everyone. They're incredibly practical for doing the weekly food shop or for carrying books in and come in a wide range of colours to suit everyone.
8. A String Tin
The Emma Bridgewater string tins are a great little present for anyone who loves gardening. The potting shed design mimics a man cave theme and is simply rather sweet. There's also a tin to match to keep bits in such as screws or gardening gloves.
9. An English Soap Company Soap
For a bit more luxury in the shower, why not treat them to an English Soap Company soap? With scents such as Bergamot & Ginger, or Sandalwood & Pink Pepper, we're sure the man in your life will be smelling divine in no time.
10. East of India trinkets
East of India always know how to say it best in their trinkets and treats. If you want to show your partner how much you love them, or remind your dad of how great he is, one of these are a great way to show that.
Today is the last day of what has been Thinking of You Week 2021. Started by the Greetings Card Association, the aim of the week is to encourage everyone to simply spread some love and positivity simply through writing a card.
Greetings cards are part of what makes us here at Daisy Park, so we love getting involved in this campaign every year. Sometimes they get overlooked, but a cute card with a handwritten, sentimental message inside is usually more than enough to make someone's day. So if you feel inspired, here's a few of our favourite cards and other bits that you can deliver to someone special, or pop in the post to a loved one across the miles.
If you feel like popping a little something else into the card, an East of India trinket is the perfect little keepsake gift to give an extra boost of sentiment and all round positivity. The hanging hearts are flat and not too big so can slot into cards quite neatly, plus there's a huge variety of phrases on them to suit everyone.
Sometimes it's nice to send someone some love without a real reason. No birthday or other event, just a reminder of how special they are to you. Take this, and Thinking of You Week in general, as your reminder to give it a go. Find a gorgeously designed card, maybe even a sweet trinket, and write a friend, family member or whoever it might be, a nice little note today. You're welcome!
In normal times, the summer season also brings with it the season of weddings. Even though these are starting to take place again now, most of them have been put off for a long time after the year we've all had. However, thanks to this tradition of a summer wedding, this does mean that there are many anniversaries also likely to be coming up.
So if you or a couple you know have got an anniversary coming up and you want to get them a little something, here's some gift ideas that spread the love without being too sickly. They'd also be ideal as a little present to take if you're lucky enough to be going to one of the smaller weddings that have been taking place again.
For any collectors or lovers of the brand, the Emma Bridgewater couple mugs are a wonderful gift that's both practical and a lovely keepsake. Available in Mr & Mr, Mrs & Mrs or Mr & Mrs.
An Austin Sloan sign is a great addition to any home, so gifting someone one of them to remind them of a special day is a lovely idea we think. Their rustic style is timeless and goes with many different interiors, inside or outside, so these are also a fairly safe bet to go for.
As weddings and anniversaries are possibly two of the most sentimental occasions we celebrate in life, we of course have to mention East of India. Their collection of trinkets with sweet sayings and lucky charms mean that you can say all you need to say in a simple yet heartfelt gift.
You can never go wrong with a good candle. Country Candles' 'Congrats' candle is a great option for an easy yet lovely gift. Or perhaps the 'Lots of Love' one to give to your partner as part of reminding them how much they mean to you on your anniversary.
Finally, if you're really stuck for a good gift or feel they already have everything, sometimes a gift voucher is the best gift you can give. That way, they can choose something themselves and you can feel reassured that they'll be getting something they love. Simply pop it in a card like one of these and you're sorted.
