Stuck for stocking filler ideas? There are two categories of people when it comes to Christmas shopping: those who have their stockings filled by the 1st of December and those who are rushing to fill their stockings on Christmas Eve. I'm usually in the second camp, but I'm planning ahead this year and have found all the best stocking filler ideas for him and her and the little ones, too.

Stocking filler ideas for all the family
Stocking fillers ideas for her
Press on nails are set to be one of the biggest beauty trends in 2024, and it's one of the best stocking filler ideas. This Dear Santa design is perfect for an easy Christmas Day mani look. Add a few more designs to see them into the new year to really fill that stocking up.
Slip makes the crème de la crème of scrunchies; they prevent breakage and are the perfect stocking filler idea because you can never have too many scrunchies.
The Lanolips ointment is a must-have for any beauty lover. It restores moisture to the skin for your smoothest, softest lips yet. With Vitamin E and lanolin, there will be no dry lips with this handy keyring this festive season.
A cute festive gift that will actually be used is the perfect stocking filler, and you can always do it with a dry shampoo (or two). This is hands down one of the best dry shampoos. Unlike others, the Advance Clean Dry Shampoo makes strands feel clean rather than leaving a powdery residue and adds softness and shine.
A scarf is a winter essential, but a personalised scarf is one of the best stocking filler ideas I've seen this year. You can't go wrong with a scarf as a gift, but a personalised one makes it all the more thoughtful. This rose shade is gorgeous and has various options, including a cute tartan print. To personalise, you can choose from up to twelve characters and five embroidery shades.
Our Junior Shopping Editor's lashes always look sensational, and this is the mascara she swears by. Who doesn't want a new mascara on Christmas day?
This is another one our Junior Shopping Editor recommends for a simple but seriously effective stocking filler idea. All skin types can do with some hyaluronic acid, and for under £20, too? It's a winner.
If it feels like everyone has a bow in their hair right now, that's because it's the hottest hair trend of the year (and 2024, too). This Needle & Thread bow is a classic and a must-have addition to any Christmas day outfit. It's seriously stunning.
Another piece the fashion set can't get enough of is a knit balaclava, a trend we can certainly get behind. Snuggly and chic? It's going straight into the stocking.
A stocking is only really complete with a skincare set. The Let It Glow set has the Kate Somerville cult favourites that any beauty lover would love to see poking out of their stocking. With an exfoliating cleanser, the infamous exfoliKate and a mini moisturiser for your glowest skin yet. It's worth £75 but half the price in this set, so what are you waiting for?
A super sweet stocking filler idea under £20? Yes, please. The super soft padded eye mask is made from 100% organic cotton and comes with a matching bag to keep it in.
Stocking filler ideas for him
A fail-safe stocking filler idea for men is always boxers and almost always Calvin Klein; you just can't go wrong.
This caramel cashew protein bar will go down a treat for a fitness-focused twist on the traditional walnut and tangerine stocking fillers.
Our Junior Shopping Editor, Valeza, is adding this to her boyfriend's stocking filler this year, which is perfect for food lovers.
Another one going at the top of our Junior Shopping Editor's stocking filler list is this super handy Bluetooth finder. Attach it to bags or keys, and quickly find them on the app.
