Are you looking for stocking-filler ideas this Christmas? You’ve come to the right place. Ciara Carroll has selected 10 items, all under €10, that might help


Christmas stockings are one of the many great things about Christmas. There is no wrong way to fill a stocking – you can put just about anything into them and whoever receives it will be thankful.

When filling a stocking, you need to know what the person likes and put in a few things based around that. You can throw in bits based on inside jokes, something that makes you think of them, or even something you think could come in handy someday. 

If you need some last-minute inspiration, here’s a list of stocking-filler items for under €10 each.

It is made with a blend of herbal extracts and rosewater, it refreshes the skin while boosting hydration and relieving tight complexions. Lightly spray it over your moisturiser for a hydration boost or use it to set your make-up. It can even be used on dry hair as a light moisturising mist.
