Christmas Gift Guides 2018: Adult Stocking Fillers

Day 7 of Blogmas today and it’s all about stocking fillers for Adults. I find it really difficult choosing gifts for adults anyway, but it’s extra difficult when it comes to stocking fillers. Personally I don’t buy into purchasing those little novelty items that cost a fortune and ultimately will end up at the bottom of a drawer or in the bin once Christmas is over.Therefore, I’ve tried to put together a guide avoiding these and instead offering more usable gifts and I hope they give you some alternative stocking filler ideas.
