Stocking Filler Ideas for Her
There’s no better feeling than giving yourself a mini-pampering session after a long day. You can get face masks for many different purposes i.e. hydrating, exfoliating, deep cleansing. The minimum recommended time to wear one is for 15 minutes to ensure all the nutrients are fully absorbed into your skin.
I love the Simple Rich Moisture Sheet Mask which fits all skin types and costs £1.49 each.

A retail shop that is available online with a great variety of options for decent prices is Boux Avenue.
No7 released its advent calendar for 2020 and at the time of writing, it had swiftly sold out online. To give the ladies in your life a taste of this wonderful make-up brand, I recommend the Nude Lip Collection. This must-buy bundle includes a Moisture Drench Lipstick honey bloom 3.8g, Precision Lip pencil nude 3g, and a High Shine Lipgloss nude 3g.
When purchased separately, it has a value of £26. However, Boots offers the items in a gift set for just £15!
You may be familiar with this title as it has been referenced a few times in pop culture. Gain some insightful life lessons through Sun Tzu, a high-ranking military general, strategist and tactician.

From this philosophical discussion, the recipient will learn several crucial life lessons for only £6.99.

The recipient will appreciate this gift as it consists of a body scrub, body butter and mini bath lily, which will ultimately make their skin feel smoother and more nourished.
It has received reviews for being convenient for travel as it is quite small and is priced at an affordable £12 from The Body Shop.
