The best beauty stocking fillers for those last-minute gifts

What's better than beauty gifts? Tiny beauty gifts

When it comes to important women in your life, finding the perfect stocking fillers for her can be tricky. Too often we resort to panic buying knick-knacks that are just destined for the drawer.

But there’s something really lovely about having a miniature version of all your favourite beauty products; even though they do the same job, nothing beats a pint-sized liner or hand cream.

From the world-famous brands you’ve always loved to the niche ones you need on your radar, consider this the definitive guide to beauty stocking fillers for every budget.

Keep reading for all the gifting inspo and be sure to check out the best beauty advent calendars, Christmas beauty gift sets and beauty Christmas crackers when you’re done here. Because nobody wants to unwrap an orange.

Spacemasks

beauty stocking fillers for her Space Masks

Spacemasks are such a genius idea that I’m almost annoyed that I didn’t think of them myself. Get comfortable, open one of the individually-wrapped masks and pop it over your eyes; it’ll gradually heat up as it oxidises. It sounds a bit unusual, but trust me when I say it really adds to the overall relaxation and helps you switch off. Plus, they smell slightly of jasmine. Divine. Pop just one in your loved one’s stocking or, for more of a treat, boxes of five are £15. On their website they write: ‘The pouches have a best before date. We doubt it’ll come to that’, and I couldn’t agree more.
