10 Best Healthy Christmas Stocking Fillers for a Wonderful Holiday

No matter what your age, stocking fillers are always a hit. The only problem is stockings are tricky to, well, fill. After all, a walnut and squished satsuma can only ignite so much excitement. So, you end up stuffing it with a Coca-Cola-flavoured lip balm, sweets and bags of chocolate coins. Only to remember that your kids aren’t twelve anymore, and your other half would prefer a treat without unholy amounts of sugar.

Whether you need inspiration for your grown-up children or your other half, we’ve got you covered. Read on for Arella Beauty’s best stocking filler ideas for wellness enthusiasts and beauty lovers alike.

Rather than grabbing a giant tube of fruit pastilles for a filler, why not switch them for a selection of dried fruit and nuts? They’re abundant in fibre, essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids - the building blocks of collagen.

If you still want to give your special someone a little sweetness, try chocolate or yoghurt-dipped nuts and raisins. Dried mango and raspberries also make wonderful, luxury Christmas stocking fillers.

Magnesium flakes are a thoughtful and relaxing Christmas stocking filler. Magnesium is a critical mineral for balancing the nervous system. It also triggers the release of melatonin for a peaceful night’s sleep.

Adding magnesium to a warm, sumptuous bath soothes winter blues, making them the perfect present for looking after mental health. And for beauty lovers, the natural salt sleuth away dead skin cells, revealing a silky complexion from head to toe.

Harsh winter winds can leave your loved ones fretting with dry, brittle ends that split and cause breakage. Gift them with organic hair oil, like argan, meadowfoam seed or olive oil, to seal in hydration for soft locks. Arella Beauty’s collagen supplement also contributes to growing strong, healthy hair, reducing winter damage.

Reusable Water Bottle for Hydration

At Arella Beauty, we are all about the environment. That’s why gifting someone with a reusable water bottle as a Christmas stocking filler is ideal. It stops unwanted plastic from going into the landfill or sea, all while quenching thirst.

Look for a metal bottle with a secure lid and a double-layer wall to keep drinks cold or hot. Metal bottles also last longer and don’t release toxins from the plastic into the person’s drink. You can get a variety of patterns and colours, so choose one you think the person receiving it will appreciate.

Herbal tea makes a charming gift for any health and wellness individual. They relax the mind, body and soul and are a great way to warm up over winter without the caffeine.

Healthy herbal teas

  • Peppermint - Aids digestion, bloating and cramps. Have a cup of peppermint tea and an evening walk after Christmas dinner for a soothed stomach.

  • Chamomile - The chamomile flower has an anti-anxiety effect by harmonising the nervous system and a mild sedative effect for a restful evening.

  • Rose - Dried rose petals are potent anti-oxidants to protect the body against stress and free radicals. They’re also excellent for essential organs like the liver and kidneys.

  • Lavender - An aromatic lavender tea calms the busiest of minds. One cup in a warm bubble bath with magnesium salts is pure heaven.

  • Ginger and lemon balm - There’s nothing better in winter than the heart-warming spice of ginger with uplifting lemon balm.
