One year ends and another is about to begin. It's that time again to make new year resolutions and take some lovely gifts with you into the future. With the coming frost and chilly wind, there’s something exciting and magical in the air. It’s one of the oldest traditions that originated long ago. On Christmas morning what’s more exciting than waking up to see a full stocking? To help you become the best Santa this year, we’ve gathered a range of products to fill those stockings and sacks that are waiting and hanging from the fireplace. Surprise your friends and family – see the glee and smiley faces with thoughtful gifts made to last, created by our designers.
Below are some ideas to help you get started. Each product featured for its thought, function, colorful illustration and/or creativity. Something for everyone you know and the different characters in your life! From coasters to mugs and screwdriver sets to pencil cases for the writer and artist. There’s plenty more in the Stocking Fillers Collection.
Everyone needs a bottle opener, whether it’s to pop a drink on a Friday evening, a day off or hold a party over the weekend. This bottle opener fridge magnet features two of London's most recognisable icons: the Black Cab or the London Taxi. Drop one of these in the stockings! Small but functional and perfect addition to the refrigerator. Adds a touch of personality!
No more using spoons to pop bottles or biting with the teeth.

Serve your cocktails, coffee and favourite drinks on these dreamy 'Evening Light' coasters. The design is a print from Freyelli's original textile artwork.

For the handy and creative person in your life. Small yet convenient. The No.1, No.2 and No.3 screwdriver sets from Elementary Design collection are handmade reproductions of two originals designed by Justin Holmes for himself when he was unable to find a set of screwdrivers which met his requirements for comfort, quality and simplicity.
The high quality bits are of a standard size and can be substituted for other varieties and easily replaced when eventually worn out. The Bits are phillips, pozi and flat.
