One of our favourite things to do during the festive season is hang up our Christmas stockings. Whether you have kept the same stocking that you’ve owned since you were a child, or whether you have splashed out as an adult and purchased an adorable new one, stockings are lovely to fill at Christmastime, and can be so much fun for all the family!
However, as much as we enjoy filling our loved one’s stockings on Christmas Eve, sometimes, it can be tricky to know what to actually put in them. The main purpose of stocking filler gifts is that they should be relatively small in size, fairly inexpensive, and, of course, things that the recipient will love!
If you are struggling to come up with the perfect gifts to fill your family’s stockings this year, then you have come to the right place! Below, we have compiled a list of some of our favourite small gifts under €30 that we’re certain anyone in your family will be delighted to receive. Have a browse through our top picks:
