5 Stocking Fillers that are more than 'Fillers'

Sleepy Head Personalised Pillow Case

Fabric based Christmas gifts are nothing new - socks, nice jumpers, been there, done that. WHERE are all the bed linen gifts? There is no better feeling than laying your weary head down on a fresh, crisp but soft pillow case. No better feeling.

Except for maybe laying your weary head down on a fresh, crisp but soft pillow case covered in lots of little versions of someone you love’s face that they generously gifted you.

Wacky Waving Inflatable Tube Guy

Hi, I’m Al Harrington, President and CEO of Al Harrington’s Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man emporium and warehouse. Thanks to a shipping error, I am now currently overstocked on Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Men, and I am passing the savings on to you.

Attract customers to your business. Make a splash at your next presentation. Keep grandma company. Protect your crops. Confuse your neighbors. Or just raise the roof. Whatever your Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man needs are!

So come on down to Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tube Man emporium and warehouse. Route 2 in Weekapaug.

Family Guy references aside, this is a fun present for the person who has everything. Makes it a bit awkward to explain when someone asks them what they got for Christmas, though.

Turkey Mug

Mugs always do well. Everyone loves a fresh mug. It’s a bit like socks, there’s nobody alive who doesn’t enjoy a refresh of the essentials. Besides, who wants to buy their own mugs? What a joyless purchase to make for yourself. A witty mug (like this one) bought by a friend or family member

Of course, we’d recommend it for any die hard Friends fans in your life (Important: not suitable for friendly Die Hard fans. Get them something else, like this), but it’s funny enough get away with gifting to someone who won’t get the reference. “A turkey with a fez and sunglasses?” Mum will say, “Oh you crazy kids, what are you like.”

Cable Bites

Stockings are often, unfortunately, home to tat. You know, silly novelty gifts. The sort of crap you used to get in a party bag when you were a wee bairn - except not as fun because you’re not high on shop-bought victoria sponge and blue Panda Pop, or eight years old.

It’s nice to get something useful. But not TOO useful, like a fountain pen, or an ordnance survey map. Something with the cute factor AND purpose. Nobody doesn’t need a little animal to keep their cables from slipping down the back of their desk or bedside table. Adorable. If only real chameleons were that helpful.

Fcking Strong Coffee

There’s no getting around it, January is looming with its threat of early mornings and broken resolutions. Either way, you’re going to have to get your shit together. Don’t get used to drinking Baileys for breakfast and playing Scrabble with your family in pyjamas all day.

What better way to kickstart their fresh start at being a Real Human Being than with our Fcking Strong Coffee? It packs enough of a punch to rouse even the sleepiest hibernator. It’s much easier to stick to that new exercise plan or execute your Never Being Late Again pledge when you’re in a caffeinated, euphoric stupor thanks to this complex blend of Brazilian and Honduran Arabica coffee.

Fresh Face - Christmas scented

We started with a personalised one, so we’ve gotta end with a personalised one. Them’s the rules, apparently.

There are so many ways to make somebody’s day with these. Picking someone up from the airport or train station? Surprise them with a little version of you hanging up in your car. Hide them in somebody’s wardrobe so their clothes smell like their favourite scent and they get a delightful fright when they see your face poking out from behind all of their shirts. Use them as Christmas tree ornaments.

The possibilities are endless!
