The trick to an excellent stocking stuffer is to give the recipient something so ridiculously extra that they would never get it for themselves. A stocking stuffer should not just be the mindless tat you chuck in your shopping trolley on 24 December – it could be something really special, without busting your wallet. Think travel sizes of luxurious items and single bits and bobs of makeup – and here’s a secret insider’s tip: if you choose the cheapest item from a luxury brand, all people will see is the fancy name – extra brownie points for you!
