Stocking fillers

Marks and Sparks is coming up trumps with the stocking fillers this year. As well as their tremendous tights (I like the Merino Wool Blend) and socks, I have found some other little wonders on the shelves.

M&S travel dental floss - 10 meters for 70p
M&S stain removing wipes - 5 for 70p
(and both on 3 for 2)

I've added in a five pence piece in the photo below to give you an idea of scale - have you ever seen a dental floss more tiny? And the stain removing wipes for me are a god send. I tend to get more food down my top than in my mouth, so I have stashed these in my handbag and am ploughing through them.

This year I've found M&S's Floral Collection, and the whole range is on buy one, get one half price. And it's so reasonably priced to begin with: the large bath cream is just £3 for 500ml, as are the boxed soaps, and the packaging is lovely - very vintage. My favourite fragrance is Iris, closely followed by Lily of the Valley, although if you're a Rose fan, this one also hits the spot. The range is massive, and also includes shower cream, hand wash, body lotion and hand cream, with prices starting from £2.00.

I've also purchased the Floral Collection mini candle gift set, for £7.50, which comes with four candles, each in a floral fragrance, in a fluted glass votive. 

London Bus Shortbread Tin £4 (half price at the moment)
Iris Florentina Foaming Bath Essence
Iris Florentina Soap
Floral Collection Candle Gift Set

And I couldn't resist the shortbread in a London Bus tin - once we've troughed all the biscuits, this will become my new cracker tin.

Just the ticket.
