Christmas Gift Guide | Stocking Fillers for The Females

When it comes to Christmas, nothing gets me more excited than stockings. They bring nostalgia, fun, and little gifts that are easy to love. There are lots of great stocking fillers on offer this year, however my personal favourites are as follows...

Givenchy Holiday Collection Prisme Libre

For the makeup lovers who deserve a real treat in their stocking this year, I recommend the Givenchy Holiday Collection Prisme Libre (£44 John Lewis). The iconic Prisme Libre is a loose powder famous for delivering a gorgeous complexion. N°11 Sparkling Lilac, the new limited-edition colour, combines four shades of purple to create a fresh and glowing complexion. Boosted with mother-of-pearl, this universal shade evens out skin tone and provides a luminous, transparent finish designed to last six hours. Its soft, ultra-fine texture helps to achieve naturally enhanced skin, and its light-reflecting pigments ensure a radiant finish in any setting.

Poppy Cooks: The Food You Need Poppy O’Toole

For the Gen-Z foodies, I recommend Poppy Cooks: The Food You Need (£16.99 | Amazon).

Poppy Cooks provides direct access to the skills Poppy’s learnt from fancy Michelin-starred restaurants, helping show readers how to cook great food at home.
