Hi eclecticats, Vicki here….

Where oh where has December gone?! Feeling a little like I’ve been in a coma – especially since Snowmaggedon last week.

It has this morning, dawned on me I still have some shopping to do and very little time to do it…Then I came to the shop and RELAXED! We have great stuff here…I run a shop I thought, WHY am I panicking?! So, here are a few of those last minute stocking fillers that I need & we have RIGHT here ūüôā

I’ve done it by spend¬†so it’s super easy to decide on what to go for…& WON’T bust your budget!

£5 & under: Heyland & Whittle Mini Soaps, Patterned Pop Socks & Hand Knitted Trees

£5 & under:

  • What could be be more perfect than Gold, Frankincense & Myrrh for Xmas? Beautifully wrapped little handmade organic scented soaps from Sussex based Heyland & Whittle. Perfect stocking fillers & a lovely gift for guests over the holidays, and great value¬†(¬£4.50 each)
  • I just love these quirky patterned nylon ankle socks! They’re fun & eminently wearable! (¬£5)
  • These little Christmas trees have proved very popular at ‘two for a fiver.’¬†Hand knitted & decorated bottle stopper/cork cosies! They make everyone smile & are perfect for popping in a stocking! (¬£3 each or 2 for ¬£5)

£10 & under: Crystal Studs, Mt Romance Sandalwood Lip Balm & Soap, Hand-turned Tree

£10 & under:

  • We have these lovely silver stud earrings left in blue.¬†Neat & sweet, these little crystal studs will suit anyone & are an absolute steal! (¬£10)
  • Unique, bespoke gift buying for under ¬£10 isn’t that easy but we have a gorgeous hand-turned wooden Christmas tree, made locally by Murray from Against the Grain. A super little and special Christmas decoration that will come out year after year. (¬£9.50)
  • Sandalwood is a long-standing favourite here in eclectica. We have two Mt Romance sandalwood gifts for under a tenner! Hard soap bar, softly fragranced, gentle on the skin and wonderfully boxed with Aboriginal artwork (¬£6) and for those out and about in the cold weather, like those skiers amongst you,¬†the Mt Romance lip care pot with SPF15 is perfect.¬†(¬£8)¬†Two gifts you won’t get anywhere else in the UK!

£15 & under: Sterling Silver Earrings, Ombre Tights & Handprinted Shopping Bag

£15 & under:

  • We have a great range of silver & gemstone earrings that come in under ¬£15 –¬†who said bling had to break the bank! My two favourites are these silver heart ear-cuffs¬†(¬£15) You’re getting¬†two for one effectively!¬†and these delicate silver filigree studs (¬£12)¬†Both wonderful for the love of your life or a dear friend.
  • Ombre/dip-dyed tights are de¬†rigueur this year and we’ve managed to source some blue two tone and grey black ones (¬£15)¬†One sized, good quality and a nicely packaged gift.
  • Another specially made in Ludlow item is this fun lobster cotton shopper¬†by Salty’s Studios. Screen printed right here in town – lovely for those wanting to give a memento of Ludders as a gift this year.

£20 & under: Moon & Stars Studs, Two-Tone Gloves & Scarves

£20 & under:

  • Give the moon and the stars with these beautiful Ottoman Hands gold plated stud earrings. Each comes in their own little pouch too. (¬£19 each)
  • Gloves are selling fast (hardly surprising of late!) We have a great selection in stock still – leather gloves in pink, tan & black and warm, stretchy and fleecy lined fabric ones with stylish button detail on them. (¬£19)
  • Pashminas are a perennial favourite and are a no brainer for any lady. One can never have enough scarves and we have a great stock in lots of colours and styles still. (¬£20)

£25 & under: Beaded Waterfall Necklace, Two Ball Silver Ring & Clutch Purse

£25 & under:

  • Beautiful multi-strand beaded waterfall necklace is¬†super eye-catching and add a bit of glamour to any outfit. (¬£24)
  • For someone who likes something a bit different and this adjustable silver two ball ring made by the wonderful Jane from Body Bangle¬†is beautifully made & slightly bonkers! (¬£25)
  • Although they’ve virtually gone I couldn’t resist including this clutch-cum-purse.¬†Zip coin compartment, inner pocket and oodles of card slots, this is seriously good value for money! (¬£25)

So there are my favourite stocking fillers that won’t break the bank at the last minute! We also have the ‘small but beautiful’ range of jewellery which I could wax lyrical about for EVER… if you really want to treat someone.
