Our Beauty Editor picks 10 genuinely lovely beauty stocking fillers for £10 or less

Get started on your Christmas shopping today...

In the hierarchy of Christmas presents, stocking fillers historically sat a notch or two above throwaway cracker tat, but things are changing.

Every family has got its stocking-stuffing traditions (in my house that’s M&S underwear, a Terry’s Chocolate Orange plus a non-chocolate satsuma as a token nod to health) But if you’re never quite sure how to fill the rest of that oversized sock, I’m here to help.

Put down the panic-bought tillside novelty items and treat your nearest and dearest to these genuinely lovely beauty buys instead.

This year my favourite brands have outdone themselves with some brilliant sub-tenner gift ideas, from classy candles to do-it-all hair stylers, chic mini lippies and, well, something all of us could use in our bathrooms during times of festive excess and multigenerational house sharing. You’ll see what I mean.
