Stocking fillers he is guaranteed to love

If you’re like me and you just love buying other people gifts (and receiving them) you will know how much fun this festive time of year is.

However, buying for that special man in your life whether it be your boyfriend or dad can sometimes prove the biggest challenge of them all.

So, to change that… here are my top ten stocking filler picks from around Canterbury which he is assured to adore!

1- This Fat Face ‘Man in a Can’ gift says it all, with body wash and body spray this is such a typical manly gift.

2- Does your boyfriend/ husband always steal your nail clippers? Here is a grooming set from Debenhams, a great gift and something useful… what more could you want?

3- My third pick, also from Boots is probably one of the most diverse! Whether its for your boyfriend or your grandad it is such an easy present that any man will make good use of!

4- If designer pants is what he is into, this bargain is certainly one to take advantage of! Debenhams are selling lots of Calivn Klein boxers for just £10.50! Calvin Klein’s which don’t break the bank? yes please!

5- Despite that £10 being a bargain… the best £10 you can spend this Christmas for him is certainly on chocolate! Debenhams are one of the many places selling all of this dairy milk just for one ten pound note!

A present that EVERYBODY loves any time of the year, especially this festive season.

6- Bargains in December following Black Friday are rare, so this wallet for under £10 in newlook is a great find! You can even go and do some shopping yourself when purchasing for him (bonus).


7- I was unsure what I would find in M&S, however for a light hearted gift I couldn’t help but notice the selection of Christmas socks. These Elf socks are my favourite and certainly my top pick for his stocking this year!


8- Is he a coffee lover?

The Costa Coffee gift range in Debenhams is a genius present and one the I am certain a coffee addict will love!

My choice (despite there being so many) is the Costa Cup with stencil! The receiver of this gift will feel exactly like they are sat in the coffee shop from home!


9- In need of a small stocking filler to finish off your present? The Superdrug Secret Santa Pub Quiz Card Game is ideal no matter who you are buying for.

For the bargain price of £2.50 you really can’t go wrong!


10- My last pick is probably the most pricey of them all, however if you prefer to stay away from the generic shops in Canterbury definitely head down to ‘Wrapped’ on 22 Burgate!

This bluetooth speaker is perfect for anyone, male or female!
