Quirky Stocking Stuffers & More

From stocking stuffers to Secret Santa presents, we’ve got your festive gift list all wrapped up at Henderson’s.

Looking for a Secret Santa gift, a little something for a teacher, a hostess gift, or a stocking filler? We have rounded up a few original gift ideas that tick all the boxes. With gifts for him and gifts for her, we hope this gives you plenty of inspiration for a thoughtful present that is just that little bit different. From ornaments and candles, to the colourful and quirky, we’ve got stylish and practical stocking stuffers guaranteed to make everyone smile.

Stocking fillers for less than £10

It is possible to find a unique gift that is also stylish for less than £10. Our Mini Ribbed Tealight Holders are available in red, turquoise, green and gold, and at just £3.50 each make a beautiful little stocking filler or thank you gift. Pop in a tealight, wrap prettily and you’re good to go. 

Unique gift ideas

Available in three sophisticated colours, our Anta Glass Votive, £4.50, is another great little option to fill with a tealight. This pretty, smoked-glass candleholder throws out a lovely cosy glow through its etched finish. The Floret Candle Votive, £4.50, has a wonderful textured finish and works well singly or grouped in threes, while the Alia Star Votive, £4.95, with its antiqued gold finish and star shape, makes a perfect seasonal gift.

For something that simply says ‘thank you’ in a pretty and practical way, our Coloured Dining Candles look lovely tied with a piece of velvet ribbon and wrapped in festive tissue paper. Simple and elegant - who doesn’t appreciate a few extra colourful candles at this time of year?

Our Etoile Tea Glass, £4.95 each, makes a particularly unique gift. Perfect for everything from water and wine to cocktails, the glass also makes a very pretty holder for a tea light or filled with snowdrops in the Spring. Wrap well in tissue paper and pop a little address or luggage label on the parcel just to say ‘Fragile’.

Element of surprise

For anyone who likes house plants, our gorgeous Glazed Indoor Plant Pot, £5.95, is ideal. Great for houseplants and faux botanicals, if you don’t want to supply with a plant, fill the plant pot with sweets, chocolates or our Large Tealights for an added element of surprise.

Our faux plants make great gifts and can be wrapped into interesting shapes. The beautiful blue Faux Muscari Plant, £6.95, creates a wonderful vignette styled on our Leon Fluted Tray with a pair of Granite Tealight Holders. A perfect little extra for the interior stylist in your life. 

Unique gifts for less than £15

Our gorgeous Fluted Glass Tealight Shade, £10.50, fits into any empty long-necked bottle or decanter, creating a unique candleholder. Team with our Coloured Tealights for a customised look. This is a lovely way to keep and use a special occasion bottle, so particularly useful for anyone who may have recently celebrated - or be about to celebrate - a life event. These look equally effective on a dining table, adding a personal touch to tablescapes, as they do on mantels and side tables. 

With three styles to choose from - petal, flower, and filigree - we can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t love to be gifted one of our Jali Lanterns, £11.95. These Moroccan-style lanterns have beautiful cut-out designs, so candlelight flickers through to create dancing patterns.   Soap is a perfectly acceptable stocking filler or thank you gift if it has a beautiful fragrance, wonderful texture and is beautifully presented: luckily our Gift Box of Soap, £13, does all of the above and more. Made to a traditional Marseilles recipe, we have five luxurious combinations to choose from.  

Stocking fillers for less than £20

At 20cm high, our Sitting Gaia Sculpture, £15, is crafted from wood and looks fantastic on a bookshelf or mantlepiece, while our Trio of Birds, £15.95, stands 10cm high, and is perfect for nature lovers. Wrap each one individually for added fun! For dog lovers who own a terrier, our Metal Profile of a Scottish Terrier, £18, would surely be the ultimate stocking filler. 

Nature’s pick

Gardeners and wildlife fans will love our unusual Window Bird Feeder, £18.50. Designed to be mounted directly on to a smooth windowpane with an innovative double-sided suction cup, this award-winning feeder gives a bird’s eye view of our feathered friends. And the best thing is, you don’t need a garden, just a window.

Delightfully different, our Bird Candle Holder will inject a playful charm and complement traditional and modern schemes alike, adding its own quirky character into any interior.

For a bold beautiful vibe, pair this metal candle holder with one of our bright Coloured Dining Candles alongside some faux foliage and decorative ornaments to create your own unique style spot.

A little extra

Our small Cast Iron Piglet is a quirky addition to any garden large or small. Sitting in a flower pot or beside the back door, it will add a touch of humor and eccentricity! 

A statement piece with its antique gold colour, our Beetle Ornament will inject unique character to any room and be admired by any interior style lover.

Finally, don’t overlook the power of scent and fragrance at this time of year. We tend not to buy beautifully scented candles for ourselves, but they make gorgeous gifts. Our Walled Garden Tinned Candles, £22, feature mouth-watering scents such as Orchard, English Lavender, Lemon Tree, Stem Ginger, Vine Tomato and Wild Mint. 

Our True Grace Boxed Candle, £24, sits in a clear glass holder and comes in a range of wonderful scents, including English Garden, Cedarwood, Jasmine Tea, Orchard, Amber, and Blackcurrant Leaves. These candles have a burn time of 30 hours, simply pop a little handwritten note in to saying, the first time the candle is used, allow it to burn for at least two hours and no more than four, until the top is liquid with wax, which will help it to continue to burn evenly. 

We hope this gives you a few ideas you may not have considered before. Enjoy browsing and shopping and have a wonderful Christmas when it comes from all of us at Henderson’s.
