5 Ideas for stocking fillers & Secret Santa gifts

posted in: Christmas, Jewellery 0

It’s that time of year when it’s gearing up to Christmas and a lot of people are looking for ideas for stocking fillers & Secret Santa gifts, which means they are looking for affordable gifts which don’t break the bank.

I have therefore created a new category on my website called Stocking Fillers & Secret Santa gifts which you can find here.

In this post I am sharing a few gift ideas with you.

  1. Bookmarks

I know these days most people are glued to their I-pads or Kindles, but if you are like me and you still value and love reading physical books then you are very likely to use bookmarks.

A bookmark makes the perfect stocking filler or secret Santa gift for the bookworm in your life as they are small and useful. My bookmarks all have animal charms – here are a few bookmarks from my collection. You can find them all here.

  1. Earrings

A pair of earrings is always a nice and affordable gift. They are also great if you have an advent calendar you can fill with gifts. I offer a wide range of earrings, from earrings with semi-precious stones to animal themed earrings. Of course it’s good to know what your recipient likes to wear and if she has ear holes and what type of earrings she likes, for example long dangly ones, studs, earrings with pearls or animal charms. There’s a lot to choose from.

  1. Polymer clay pendants

  1. Adjustable rings

Adjustable rings make great gifts when you are not sure which size would fit the recipient. Some of my rings are made with memory wire which keep their shape and fit most fingers, while my polymer clay rings are glued onto adjustable ring shanks.
