7. A gift to bring out the competitive spirit
Christmas is prime time to dust off those board games and get a bit of competition going between family and friends. But what’s even better? Adding a brand-new game to the mix, making it the ultimate stocking stuffer. With a plethora of choices at your fingertips, you can opt for a speedy card-based Monopoly, compact mini board games, or throwback classics like Connect Four – guaranteed fun for all!
6. A bit of self care
We all know that looking after yourself is important. From your mental wellbeing to your physical health, prioritising self-care is important for you and those around you. So, why not make it easier for your family and friends to have a bit of ‘me time’ and give them stocking fillers to help them relax? Think candles, soothing diffuser sets, luxurious bath salts, and pampering face masks – the ultimate self-care stocking fillers!
5. Something personalised
Gifts that are personal are always a winner. Something personalised definitely lets them know you put a bit of thought into their gift and is something a bit more special than the usual gift. From loveable wall plaques to personalised illustrated art, the more inventive you can be with your personalised stocking filler gifts, the better.
4. A sustainable gift
It doesn’t get much more sustainable than the gift of a tree from Trees That Count. They will plant native trees throughout New Zealand on your behalf. You can even choose which tree planting project you would like your gift to be a part of from around the country. This is truly a gift that is making such a positive impact and helping improve our environment.
3. Food or sweet treats
Who can resist a good nibble, especially during the festive season? Christmas is the ultimate excuse to dive into scrumptious treats! If your gift recipient has a sweet tooth, chocolates are an awesome stocking choice. And for those who savour the savoury, there’s a treasure trove of salty delights to explore. If you really want to go the extra mile, assemble a fantastic gift box bursting with all their favourites.
2. Something to get outside
We’re lucky enough in New Zealand to be able to enjoy Christmas in the warmer months which means outdoor games make great stocking fillers. You can get smaller outdoor games like frisbee, a ball of some sort (think beach ball, tennis ball or soccer ball), or a collapsible swing ball set. Then there’s also ones which may not actually fit in a stocking but make great extra gifts, like kubb and giant Jenga, or even cricket or volleyball set. Games are an awesome way to get everyone involved and have a lot of fun. Anything which puts a smile on your gift recipients face is a win in our books.
1. Exciting experiences
There’s nothing better than an amazing experience gift which creates unforgettable memories. We think experiences make the best gift of all and are way better than receiving more stuff.
A Chuffed gift is the best way to gift an experience and perfect for filling a stocking – it comes in an exciting Chuffed Box. With Chuffed your gift can’t fail as they get to choose from up to 120 different experiences from across NZ.
