The Khardashian's Stocking Fillers

I have loved reading everyone's Christmas Gift Guides although I'm slightly shocked at what some people refer to as a stocking filler. My stocking used to be filled with small gifts and sweets so I decided to have some fun and do an indulgent stocking filler guide that is only likely to appeal to those with the Khardashian sized Christmas budget. 

1. Laura Mercier Les Petits Bonbons Eye Palette link
When I worked out the individual cost (£4.50) of each of the thirty baked eye shadows in Laura Mercier's Les Petitis Bonbons palette I actually found myself thinking this was quite a bargain but at £135 for the palette itself I don't think Santa will be dropping this down my chimney Christmas Eve.

2. Show Beauty Limited Edition Pure Treatment Oil link
Skilled artisans hand applied over 800 Swarovski crystals to the lid of Show Beauty's Limited Edition Pure Treatment Oil which at six hours per piece goes some way to explaining the £155 price tag, as does its being referred to as 'liquid gold' by those in the know. This may be a multi use treatment oil but I'd want it to wash and blow dry my hair for the price.
3. Yves Saint Laurent La Laque Couture Colour Collection link
Despite a £395 price tag this stunning entire collection of La Laque Couture YSL nail polishes has sold out on the Selfridges website. 24 shades all stashed neatly in a beautiful black acrylic box - no Muji here - it works out approx £16 per polish. Again reasonable price individually but that is some expense at Christmas. If you're looking for a cheaper alternative Barry M have put together their own collection across their ranges at a still pricely sum but more 'budget friendly ' at £89.99 which you can find here.
4. Bobbi Brown Basic Brush Collection link
I daren't add up the cost of my make up brushes in my handbag today let alone those sitting on my dressing table but it always seems less scary when purchased individually. Bobbi Brown has put together their basic collection for a snip at £144.
5. Creme De La Mer Asprey Ultimate Collection Gift Set link
Creme De La Mer is pricey. Asprey is pricey. Put the two together and you have a Christmas gift that costs more than 3 months rent. Only 111 cases created with a plaque etched with it's number you'll have to be quick to grab yours. Containing moisturising creams, eye concentrate, serums and much more for £2750 I think I'd rather have a Chanel bag if that's the price limit for my gifts.

6. La Prairie Lifting Luxuries Gift Set link
Compared to Creme De La Mer this La Prairie gift set is cheap at a quarter of the price. £632 transforms your skins appearance with their range of caviar products. I don't know about transforming my skins appearance, I'd want to look at least 5 years younger if I were to spend £632 on skincare.
I hope you enjoyed my fun Christmas gift guide and leave me a comment about some of the gifts you've seen for sale lately with extortionate price tags.

  3. Phil gave me a thumbs down .....Probably slippers again, smile!

  4. love that makeup brush set!

  5. Stocking fillers for us are still little cute presents, sweets and things that we need (pens, pants, gift vouchers) and things that will entertain the kids while we have a lie in (or at least until 7am!)
    I love the bobbi brown brushes, I have had my eye on them as the website has some free gifts at the moment that would make it so worth it!
