Wednesday Wants….Stocking Fillers

To me, stocking fillers have always been things like satsumas and Ferrero Rocher. But I’m noticing lately that the shops are telling us that much bigger (and more expensive!) things will make the ideal thing to bulk out your over sized sock. But as much as I love tradition (and Ferrero Rocher), this post was never meant to be about the things I will possibly have….that would be so dull….it’s about the things I lust after, no matter how extravagant!

So with that in mind, here are a few ‘stocking fillers’ I’ve had my eye on…..

Diana Baby 110 Gold Edition

I adore my Diana camera, which Adam bought me a few birthdays ago. I love its plasticy-ness and the crazy photos it comes out with….not to mention the way people look at me when I use the brilliantly huge paparazzi-style flash. It’s not *the* most easy thing to carry around though, especially with the umpteen lenses and accessories I was lucky enough to receive alongside mine….but this baby-sized one is! I’m crazy about its shameless glitzy-ness and bling-factor….it’s so different from the super-retro black and blue of the original one. It’ll cost you almost as much as that though, as this special edition is £59 from the Lomo shop. Still, a bit of bling is worth it!

Lee Broom Crystal Light Bulb

I really can’t think of something much more extravant to fill your stocking with than this. Inspired by the delicate craftsmanship of crystal cutting, this decorative light bulb-shaped crystal light fitting from Liberty has been individually hand blown before being cut with a classic crystal pattern and etched with the Lee Broom logo. Apparently it refracts the light beautifully as a play on the common light bulb versus a glitzy chandelier. Clearly for the person who has everything! Especially at £109!

And as a rather blingy theme has emerged….I give you…..

18k Christmas Bow Necklace

I am totally in love with this. It’s sooooo shiny and wonderfully fun and festive. I would like to think it would go with everything too. But then I’ve never been shy about wearing something a little OTT with a T-shirt and jeans. It’s made by hand by ilithe, and is available on Etsy for £625. And I bally love it!

Happy stocking stuffing!
