Stocking fillers are simple little gifts that you give at Christmas time.  Traditionally they are small enough to pop in a Christmas stocking and are seen as a little added extra on the day.

How did the stocking filler come about?

The idea of the Christmas stocking comes from a legend concerning St. Nicholas. In the story, a father of three daughters is too poor to afford dowries for his children. In the spirit of giving, St. Nicholas throws three sacks of gold down the chimney of the man’s house. These sacks of gold fall into the girls’ stockings, which had been hung by the fire to dry. Fast forward to today and stocking fillers are those little extra bits and pieces to make your loved ones feel even more special.

What is the best stocking filler?

If you ask us, the best stocking fillers are ones that involve gin. Of course this is only the case for those over 18, but let’s face it, who doesn’t love a cheeky G&T at Christmas time?  We know we do!  So here is our list of the best stocking stuffers for the gin lover in your life.
