Christmas Stocking Filler Idea

I love pop-up shops, Christmas markets, discovering independent little shops and supporting small businesses. They also make for unique and interesting Christmas ideas and stocking fillers because they offer creative ideas and things that will suit every type. Sam, my lovely other half, is a plumber and likes cars so I find it hard to get him presents. He's not bothered about skincare, has already too many clothes and isn't bothered about tech stuff. So, I sometimes find Christmas guides and present guides aren't that great for him (my dad is also the same).

When I was in Meadowhall the other day I saw a little pop-up stall called The Amazing Chocolate Workshop. TACW sell chocolate in the shape of various objects like tools, screws, taps and other things that are great for tradesmen or men who are like tools. It was also really cool that the nuts and screws actually screwed together and Sam was mesmerised about that before stuffing it in his mouth. Another great thing about this little stall is that the majority of the chocolate they sell is dairy free, meaning that it is suitable for vegans. It is dark, which was a bonus because Sam's favourite chocolate is dark and I think I remember the lady saying it was 70%. I'm not a huge fan of dark chocolate, but this was really nice and not too bitter. The things that they sell, like lightbulbs and salami, aren't dark chocolate and so contain dairy. It wasn't cheap, but I managed to get three fair size pieces for £20, including the gift box.

I gave it him for our anniversary (last week) and it's already all gone. He did let me have a bit and it was really nice. The lady who served me says it lasts around 6 months, which is great for those who only like chocolate occasionally or are one of those people that like to look at pretty food and don't like to eat it. Overall, I think this is a great little stocking filler idea and their website showcases the different things they do. So, if you have a tricky man or woman in your life that you want to buy for, I'd suggest this. They have things for tradesmen, artists, food enthusiasts, crafty people, the works. It's a really versatile and fun little gift & I think it's great to support small businesses. I'd seriously suggest checking out their website here and their Facebook to see if they are popping up anywhere near you soon.

Do you have anyone in your life that is tricky to buy for?

Til' next time! XOXO
