The Element of Surprise
Growing up as a child my favourite part of Christmas was my stocking. After circling everything in the toy catalogue and writing my letter to Santa the stocking was full of things I wasn’t expecting. To start off our Christmas stocking fillers we are recommending 3 gifts that can be used around the festive period.
What better way to start off stocking fillers than a cute and non-traditional stocking. This stocking is perfect for the Disney lovers out there with the white and gold outline and the Mickey Mouse caricature. This comes in at only €10.
We all remember those days of leaving out the treats for Santa and his reindeer to make sure they didn’t get hungry while delivering all the presents. This Reindeer feeder kit has everything an imaginative young child needs to keep Santa’s belly full. It includes an official reindeer feeder license, a storybook of Rudolph and his reindeer sleigh, and a snack holder for the carrots.
What Guinness drinker wouldn’t love a personalised pint glass? This Guinness Pint Glass comes with a special gift box and the engraving of someone’s name.
