Christmas Stocking Fillers
Christmas just wouldn’t be Christmas without hanging out a stocking at the end of the bed. What will Father Christmas bring this year, a satsuma, some chocolate coins? Or, maybe a smartphone!
A smartphone in a Christmas stocking? Well, apparently one in four adults are thinking about putting some type of tech in a Christmas stocking this year.
In years gone by, a Christmas stocking would include small, less expensive gifts but today the average cost of a child’s Christmas stocking is £71. The price of gifts in a Christmas stocking peaks when a child reaches 15 at £119.
Christmas Stocking Filler Ideas
Mini Hottie Snowflake Fox Hand Warmer
Keep your hands warm and toasty with the Mini Hottie Snowflake Fox Hand Warmer. Featuring a fun snowflake fox design, the knitted case mimics a mini hot water bottle. To activate the heat, simply bend the disc inside with your fingers until you hear a click. The heat will then last for 30-60 minutes. If placed in a glove or pocket it will keep heated for several hours.
Reviva Emergency Powerbank
This is an essential piece of kit that every member of the family should have. Small enough to fit on a keyring with dimensions of 40mm x 40mm, it gives your iPhone or Android smartphone an emergency charge. When conventional charging from the mains is unavailable, simply plug this device into your phone to boost your battery life. Choose from the Reviva Emergency Powerbank Micro USB or Reviva Emergency Powerbank Micro Lightning and never be caught out by a flat phone battery again.
Tallon Face Paints
If you are looking for some fun stocking fillers for a kid’s Christmas party this pack of 12 Tallon Face Paints in five colours is a great choice. Easy to apply thanks to the two double ended applicator sticks included in each pack, these face paints are naturally sourced and will produce brilliant, vibrant designs. After the party is over, they are easy to wash off and are kind to the skin.
Stanley Gibbons How to Identify Stamps Booklet
A great little stocking filler for someone in the family who has just started a stamp collection. The Stanley Gibbons How to Identify Stamps Booklet shows you how to study stamp inscriptions in order to identify the issuing country. It is the first edition since 1994 and the first to be available in full colour.
London Underground Pin Badge
Over the years there have been many iconic London Underground posters. For any fan of design or London Underground memorabilia, this London Underground 77p Stamp Pin Badge would make a great little present. This pin badge features reproductions of three classic London Underground Posters: Golders Green (1908) by an unknown artist 1908; By Underground to fresh air (1915) by Maxwell Armfield; Summer Sales (1925) by Mary Koop.
Christmas Stocking Fun Fact
