Blogmas Day 17: Stocking Fillers

Now possibly my favourite part of Christmas morning is the stocking. I grew up with dentists for parents so my stocking was the one day of the year when I could eat sweets to my heart’s content because my mum filled my stocking chock-a-block with sweets.


Even now I love them; I’m really hoping that despite being nearly 23 and having a full-time job my mum’ll still do me one this year. One year my dad wrapped up a bit of coal and put it in my presents so I think my parents owe me a stocking.

So here are some things you can pop in a stocking if you feel like playing Santa Claus this year! Just a quick PSA though, if I hear of anyone putting a satsuma in a stocking I will hunt you down and pelt you with the fruit that has no place in a Christmas stocking.

Parma Violets


The best sweets in the entire world. And you can get a pack of five on Amazon for £2.58.

Zymurgorium Sweet Violet Gin


Parma Violets for grownups, for £26.50 on Amazon.

And everyone needs some festive Nails


So you can admire your nails while opening all of your pressies, these are £9.99 at Boots.

And of course some Christmas Socks to keep your toesies warm while you scoff down your Christmas dinner.


These are £3.50 in Asda and double as slippers so you’ll be snug as a bug in a Christmassy rug.

And some Christmas pants.


So you can pose in your undies until you realise it’s the middle of December and, if you’re like me, you’re in a house filled with relatives who don’t want to see your knickers, Beyonce pun or not. £3.00 in Asda, I love me a bargain.

And last but not least a Chocolate Orange!


It looks like fruit and smells like fruit but it’s not fruit! As we’ve already established there will be no fruit in these stockings!

That’s all from me folks, tune in tomorrow for more Blogmas fun!

Happy National Maple Syrup Day!

  1. When I lived overseas, the chocolate orange is one thing I could not understand. And I want to live where you live so I can say things like chock-a-block, pressies and eat parma sweets. Us Americans are so blah with our stupid unfun words.


    1. Haha that’s so cute! And we do have a pretty impressive amount of weird slang words but these are words I inherited from my scouse parents so if you like these words Liverpool is the place for you not bonnie Scotland! Thanks so much for commenting!
