20 Stocking Fillers for 20 Years of Spirit of Christmas Fair

I can’t quite believe that Spirit of Christmas Fair is just around the corner - and what’s more - it is the very special 20th-anniversary edition.


As we look forward to discovering treasures, treats, gifts and more from our curated list of brands and boutiques, I have been putting together some edits based on my top picks from the Fair.


Following on from my ‘House & Garden Magazine’s Top Picks’ editorial, I’d love to share my favourite stocking fillers for under £30 with you. As it’s the 20th anniversary, 20 gifts seemed an appropriate choice!


Rebecca Udall’s linen napkins: luxurious, reusable napkins that will make your table look the part.


Tom Rooth’s hand-illustrated lobster plates: minimalist enough to compliment your crockery, yet unique enough to draw the eye at the Christmas table (piled high with tasty treats no doubt).


Uberstar’s reusable coffee cups: available in a pleasing selection of neutrals and muted tones, sustainability meets trendy with these planet-conscious cups.

Sarah K’s baby cotton blankets: ultra-soft blankets to wrap up little ones in the colder weather.


Lime Tree Design’s printed handkerchiefs: beautifully printed handkerchiefs make the perfect stocking filler or office secret-santa present.


Vespucci Adventures’s self-guided tours: explore beautiful areas of outstanding natural beauty across the UK at your own pace - a thoughtful present for the outdoor-loving, adventure-seeker in your life.

Pop band’s hair accessories: a lovely top-up gift that holds ponies and buns tight whilst being gentle and soft. There are a range of shades depending on whether you want the bands to blend in or stand out.

Thunder Drinks’ Toffee Vodka: a velvety toffee flavour blended with five-times distilled vodka to create something quite magical. There is a Christmas cocktail or two I’d like to make with this…

Skimono’s facemasks: ready yourself for the cold winter’s drying impact on skin with hydration-filled sheet masks catering to a range of skin types.

Charlotte Gerard’s cow prints: fun, photographic, quintessentially British mounted prints.

Branche D’Olive’s cloud-scented soy candles: A lovely treat for those who like to indulge and relax...

Oxton Liqueur’s Rhubard Gin Liquor: another cocktail-o’clock delight for an equally delightful £30.

Honest’s range of papier mache baubles: eco-friendly, hand-crafted homeware to elevate Christmas décor. 

Nue Hoop’s Coco Gold Charm hoop: Stack your ears with some unique hoops.

Abstract Bee’s gingerbread scented diffuser: a warming, festive scent evoking childhood-Christmas nostalgia. 

The Gift of Oil’s orange and mandarin infused olive oil: add layers of taste to your roast duck or crisp up your potatoes with a decadent difference.

Vintage Playing Cards gold alphabet mugs: when in doubt - a mug with a hint of personalisation is always a well-received stocking filler. 

Serendipity’s family favourite games: games at Christmas time bring every generation together for light-hearted fun - often fuelled by some serious competition!

Grass & Co’s calming bath salts: as our pace of life starts to speed up once more, gifting a moment of calm of indulgence shows thought and care.

Dalton’s personalised keychains: look no further for a winner of a stocking filler for the men in your life.
