Your Christmas stocking filler edit

Celebrity stylist and super chic mum Aimee Croysdill, spills the beans on her top 15 Christmas stocking fillers! Temporary tattoos to finger puppets to spy cameras, everything that makes the cut is under £30, sustainable and in support of small businesses – a complete festive treat!

"My rules were small business and sustainable first off, but also size and price" says dotte hero Aimee. "I tried to keep everything under £20 but a few bigger presents snuck in there as I know that Father Christmas isn't all about the trinkets. Also size wise, I made sure everything would fit inside a stocking. I hope this inspires some of you because if you feel the same way as me on your first proper Christmas with the little one, it all feels a bit overwhelming. Not only because of the financial climate but also the pressure of setting some kind of standard and tradition that is not too high and impossible to maintain if our family grows!" Enjoy.
