The 12 best stocking fillers this Christmas
This year, fill up your loved ones’ stockings with these cheap, cheerful and healthy gifts.
#1 Burt’s Bees Beeswax Hive Favourites
Hello, hydration! This limited-edition set contains two products. The Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm glides on the lips and doesn’t leave a sticky residue. The set also features the Naturally Nourishing Milk & Honey Body Lotion, a deliciously scented lotion that will make you want to moisturise all day long!
#2 Pur Gum mints or gum
Meet the cleanest gum on the market. I love Pur Gum’s range because it’s free from aspartame, a nasty ingredient that you’ll find in most commercial gum and mints (plus artificial sweeteners). They have something to tickle all tastebuds, from traditional flavours such as spearmint and peppermint to fun flavours like pomegranate, chocolate mint and tangerine tango!
#3 Abundant Natural Health’s natural soap bars
I don’t know about you, but I love making my shower or bath experience as luxurious as possible. It’s the best way to prepare for the day or unwind for the night! Enter: natural soap bars. I made the switch a few years ago and haven’t looked back. Abundant Natural Health is one of my fave brands thanks to its creamy formulas and clean ingredients list. This pack comes with 3 exfoliating body bars. They’re infused with goat’s milk, jojoba oil and olive oil for soft, smooth skin, and magnesium to soothe and relieve tension.
#4 Saba Organics Hand Sanitiser
You can never have too many sanitisers! Give your friends and family the gift of squeaky-clean hands with the Saba Organics Hand Sanitiser. It’s proven to kill 99.9% of germs — but it won’t strip and dry out your skin like a lot of alcohol-based hand sanitisers. Instead, it’s packed with essential oils and has a delicious Rose & Kakadu Plum scent! You’ll find a pack of 3 on the GMB shop, and I won’t tell anyone if you keep one of the chic bottles for yourself.
#5 Boody bamboo socks
Is there anything better than slipping your feet into beautifully soft socks? Boody’s socks are made with bamboo, so they’re naturally antimicrobial and breathable. They also have a good selection of everyday and sports socks, and I always pack an extra pair for the plane when I travel. Top tip: Thread Harvest also has a range of comfy socks. Every pair has the feel-good factor too — the site exclusively stocks ethical and sustainable brands.
#6 Morlife Dark Chocolate Berry Lovers
Sweeten up your loved one’s stocking with a packet — or two! — or Morlife dark chocolate-coated berries. The chocolate itself is delectable, plus it’s gluten-free and bursting with antioxidants. As for the berries, you can choose between strawberries, blueberries, goji berries or cherries, and save when you buy a bundle pack on the GMB shop.
Say bye-bye to toxic nail polishes and introduce your gal pals to Paint. Their all-natural nail polishes are vegan and free from the ‘big 5’ nasties: formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, DBP, toluene and camphor. They’re super glossy, too! This value pack comes in at just under $70, and includes four gorgeous shades: Galactic Rose, Velvet Berry, Tribal Blossom and Bronte Summer. The best bit? They’re Aussie-made!
#7 Paint Nail Lacquer
#8 Christmas ornaments
If you celebrate Christmas, you’ll know how exciting it is to decorate the tree with all your favourite ornaments. It’s also fun to add new ornaments to the mix each year, which is why they make for the perfect stocking stuffers! You can head to your local arts n’ crafts market to support a small business, or shop online at Biome.com.au. They have an awesome range, and every single product in the store meets Biome’s strict sustainability standards.
#9 Alter Eco truffles
Because you can never have enough chocolate! The Alter Eco truffles are absolutely heavenly, and I always keep a stash at home for when visitors come over (and whenever I’m craving something sweet). Made with smooth Ecuadorian chocolate, coconut oil, and cacao, they melt in your mouth and come in a variety of flavours. I always reach for the Superdark Truffles (80% cocoa), but I’m also partial to the Mint Creme and Salted Caramel!
#10 Skinfood face masks
The silly season is crazy-busy, and we all need a little me-time to rest and recover. A great gift for the beauty lover, Skinfood has a range of luxe face masks to suit various skin types and concerns. The Quench Coconut Mask is brilliant for deeply hydrating dry, dull skin, and the Detox Charcoal Mask draws out impurities and leaves your skin feeling fresh and clean.
#11 Noir Activated Charcoal Teeth Whitening
Encourage your favourite people to flash their pearly whites by popping Noir’s Activated Charcoal Teeth Whitening product in their stocking. Suitable for everyday use, the paste cleans teeth while naturally whitening them. For the best results, tell your loved ones to use it twice daily — it can even replace toothpaste!
#12 Eloments Organic Vitamin Tea
Who doesn’t love relaxing with a hot cuppa? I like Eloments because each bag is bursting with flavour, and packed with 9 essential vitamins and minerals: B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, C and zinc. The Summer Orange brew is zesty and refreshing, but there are plenty of other options to choose from. Think Egyptian Mint, Double Lemon, Ceylon Breakfast and even Bourbon Vanilla.
