6. Le Labo Thé Noir 29 Eau De Parfum 100ml, £165
I wish there was a scratch and sniff option so you could breathe in this amazing scent. The mixture of tea from Ceylon, bergamot and vetiver gives a great heady aroma that lasts all day. I guarantee this will garner you many compliments. Furthermore, you are also able to personalise the bottle for that added special touch.
7. Benefit Cosmetics Brow Zings Eyebrow Shaping Kit, £24.50
Brows are bigger than ever and they are showing no sign of disappearing. Benefit are fully aware of this and have created this utterly adorable kit that offers up everything you need to compete with Cara Delevingne’s caterpillars.

8. Cremè De La Mer’s Classic Cream, 2oz, £250
There is simply no denying Cremè De La Mer’s status within the world of beauty. Even the mere mention of the cream sparks conversation and I won’t lie and say that I don’t pride myself having a pot on my vanity table. Treat yourself or the women in your life and they’ll be thanking you well into the new year.
9. Nano B’s Gold and Charcoal Toothbrush, £9.99
Stocking fillers should ideally have a purpose and well, brushing with a regular toothbrush is so old news. The latest way to keep those teeth pearly white is to use a charcoal and gold brush. The combination of the two work to improve tooth strength and whiten your smile naturally. In addition to that, you feel like an absolute queen brushing with gold.
10. Essie’s Holiday Nail Polish Gift Set 2016, £20
Essie has such wonderful shades in its back catalogue and we’re delighted with the festive set. Plus, the four complimenting colours create wonderful manicures, which would make one of the best perfect stocking fillers for budding nail artists.
