If you are looking for inspiration for unusual Christmas stocking fillers then this is the first instalment of just some of the great ideas you can use.

When it comes to delivering impressive stocking fillers, it pays to think outside the box to deliver a real Christmas Day treat.

Christmas stocking fillers for children

While we’ve listed this under the Christmas stocking fillers for children heading, it’s really a present for children of all ages.

What’s not to like about the Catchabubble from Prezzybox at £3.99?

All children love blowing bubbles and this is a major upgrade which enables them to blow a bubble and then catch it and stick them together.

This is a seriously cool gift and bigger kids will also appreciate it too. As will mum and dad.

Also recommended: the Melting Unicorn from Paperchase at £6.50 and the Dobble 123 card game from John Lewis at £12.99.

Christmas stocking fillers for teens

Ideas for Christmas stocking fillers means struggling for inspiration but here Christmas.co.uk will help deliver some great offerings.

As you would expect, there’s a wide range of great ideas available but we particularly like the smartphone projector available from Not on the High Street at £17.95.

It’s a simple idea, with the smartphone sliding into the projector so a teenager can project photos and videos onto their bedroom wall. So, rather than have your teenager staring at their phone all day long, there’s a good chance they’ll spend the time staring at their bedroom wall instead.

Also recommended: unisex trainer cleaning wipes from Amazon costing £5.99 and the Qushini robot Bluetooth speaker from Urban Outfitters costing £30.

Christmas stocking fillers for women

Finding Christmas stocking fillers for women can be something of a minefield for men at the best of times, so in the run-up to the festivities, the Christmas.co.uk team will be highlighting some great gift ideas.

For this edition, we quite like the Annie Haak ‘Arizona’ Bracelet Stack , which costs £115 from Annie Haak.

It is stylish, well made and gives an idea as to what you can buy for birthdays and next Christmas, too.

Also recommended: Rosie for Autographed Divine Sugar Body Scrub from Marks & Spencer’s at £10 and the Kate Spade New York flamingo flock keyring from John Lewis at £60.

Christmas stocking filler ideas for men

While men tend to be easier to buy for, we quite like this gentleman’s utility credit card tool from Amazon costing £9.50.

It’s the kind of nifty gadget that may prove useful at some point in a gentleman’s life. Plus it’s a gadget.

Also recommended: Christmas beard lights and tinsel set from Fizz Creations costing £7.99 from Asos and the Pocket Tin Speaker from Oliver Bonas costing £21.95.
