The best stocking fillers for Christmas 2017
When we talk about stocking fillers, do we actually mean candy canes, toy cars, a crap selection box, oranges and bits of coal in a naff red and white giant sock hanging over a raging fireplace?
No. We don’t. We’re not 9 years old.
When WE say stocking fillers, we mean cool smaller extra presents to build around the main Christmas gift. The type of cool oddity, gadget or lifestyle accessory that ends up stealing the entire day.
Obviously you can still stuff them in your stocking should you be so traditionally minded. No one is judging you here. Just don’t relegate them to the periphery on Christmas Day. Our selection demands respect.
Stocking fillers for him? Check. Stocking fillers for her? Check.
Let’s take a look at a small selection of our best gifts for your ‘stocking’ for Christmas 2016.
What a deliciously ombre-toned and topically millennial little package to pull out of a Christmas stocking! How current, and crucially, how essential! With fish-eye, wide angle, macro, telescopic and CPL lenses – you can expect a lot of rather imaginative ‘tinsel on my head’ and ‘tinsel on my dog’s head’ pics to flow into Instagram come Boxing Day.
After the second terse Monopoly related argument and Uncle Tim making a really big deal about standing on a hotel – who isn’t shouting ‘F**K The Game‘?! This rather more exciting and lewd game combines colours and swear words with good old-fashioned psychological mind-f*ckery, meaning that a typical round sounds something like “Yellow. Orange. P*ssy. Purple. Sh*t. Green…no wait…F**K!!”
Not sure what kind of stocking experience you’re into, but for us, coercing awkward shapes out of the lining of an ancient stocking is the ultimate in festive satisfaction. Meet Uni The Unicorn Night Light, whose ambient glow will throw a lovely calming light upon proceedings, and provide a nice change from all those traditional reindeers etc.
Sure, Christmas is a lovely, joyous time (marred only by gravy disasters and extended family), but it’s also f*cking knackering. People have been p*ssed since October and that trip to Oxford Street is enough to give anyone gout. So, the best and most profound gift to pop in a stocking this Christmas is some F*cking Strong Coffee, to give that f*cking strong caffeine hit Christmas would be unbearable without.
This non-toxic (hurrah) bit of invention/magic allows you to make actual bubbles with your favourite beverage and lick the sh*t out of them! This wonder starts as a pack of 6 bottles, each containing 25ml of bubble solution with space remaining in the bottle to add ANY beverage you fancy – lemonade, cola, cold-press coffee, gin, tequila – anything (well, not thick liquids like milk). How lovely.
Your stockings will end up laddered by this heaving mass of festive goodies. Congratulations. You’ve now taken a bit part of the Christmas experience and aced it. This is just the tip of the wintry iceberg. Check out the rest of our offering here
