Is it just me or is finding a stocking at the end of your bed the most exciting part of Christmas? You get presents on your birthday, but a stocking stuffed with thoughtful tidbits? That's a once-in-a-year event that deserves due celebration. And that means, stocking fillers. There can be a temptation to - forgive the turn of phrase - buy a load of crap, but try to resist, instead choosing fun stocking fillers that will last for a lot longer than the 12 days of Christmas.
Christmas gifts that can be stuffed into stocking don't get more reliable than a Toblerone, except when its a personalised Toblerone. I also think a reusable coffee cup - our favourite is this sleek design from Chilly's, which comes in 12 dreamy shades and two sizes for those who like their drinks on the grande side - will be the gift that keeps on giving in 2022.
