Christmas Gift Guide – Stocking Fillers/Secret Santa

I don’t know about you, but even at 34 I still love getting a stocking. It usually has a tube of smarties or something and some other bits and pieces, but I love it. I don’t know why. I even found my first ever Christmas stocking the other day.

It’s a bit bobbled and there’s a small hole under where my name is but it’s still in tact and reminds me so much of childhood Christmas past.

This isn’t the stocking I use now (I think it’s at my parents house… I hope it is) but it’s a nice decoration to remember times gone by.

Anyways, on to the Stocking Fillers… These are some of my top picks for either Stocking Fillers/Secret Santa Gifts, especially if you’re on a budget… some of them are funny, some are tasty and some are just a bit random but that’s what these kind of gifts are usually about.
