Stocking Fillers- Amara Living

* Items marked with the asterisk were sent complimentary for the purpose of this review.

Today I am excited to introduce you to a new brand, and a few of their lovely stocking fillers (just in time for last minute Christmas shopping!)

Amara is a luxury home and lifestyle brand where you can buy anything from homeware, chic furnishings and home fragrance, to jewellery, watches and stationery- and lots of lovely things in between. You can find brands like Kate Spade, Ugg, Ted Baker, Orla Kiely and Urban Apothecary.

Here's a selection I chose to showcase the kind of stocking fillers you can find.

Flamingos Cosmetic Bag* // Marinette Saint Tropez // £21.00

I fit the contents of an entire Powder Beauty Drawer in here, and I probably could have done it twice more!
If you read my blog, it's probably partly because you love subscription boxes as much as I do, so I chose this lovely Flamingo Cosmetic Bag because it is so roomy, you can fit plenty of makeup or toiletries in it, whether for travel or just day to day. I love that the flamingos are embroidered on rather than printed, it makes the bag just that little bit more interesting and unique.

Kindness Mug* // Ellen Degeneres & Royal Doulton // £10.00

This mug is part of a range by Ellen Degeneres and made by Royal Doulton, who are pretty renowned for their nack at making lovely crockery. I don't know if you can tell from the photo, but this mug is absolutely enormous, which I think is great in the winter as you can fill it up with a nice hot drink and warm your hands with it. Besides that, the lovely blue colour and the message 'Kindness' is uncomplicated yet sweet. There are also 'Love' and 'Smile' mugs if you prefer those designs.

Prosecco Rose Candle* // Voluspa // £12.00

I chose this gorgeous candle because the rose gold trend is alive and well, and it is a great price for a luxe candle by Voluspa- a brand which is apparently loved by celebrities and also makes diffusers and room sprays. When I opened the lovely pink tin I was hit by a sweet mix of rose and prosecco fragrance; I normally don't go for rose scents but the prosecco tones it down so it becomes a lovely sugary scent. This candle is made with coconut wax and has a burn time of 25 hours.

Bow Paper Clips* // Kate Spade // £10.00

Finally, I went for a stationery item by beloved brand Kate Spade. These cute little bow paper clips will not only be good for cheering up dull paperwork in the new year but could be used in penpal correspondence and decorating your 2018 planner. You get 12 clips in the pack, and they come ready to gift in pretty packaging.

I hope you enjoyed reading about my stocking filler selections from Amara Living. What do you think of my choices? Have you browsed their stocking fillers yet? Let me know in the comments!


  1. I've not heard of Amara before but they have some lovely items. The flamingo bag is gorgeous - as you say, how unusual to find something embroidered instead of printed, it looks really luxe. The rose/prosecco candle also sounds lovely and fragrant. Beautiful photos, as always! X

  2. I haven’t heard of this brand either but these are really cute bits! I love that mug - I think that’s something I’d reach for if I was having a bit of a naff day. And that flamingo bag looks a really decent size for make up! Lovely post, as always!


  3. I love your choices here, the bag is adorable and also hugely practical! The size of it is amazing. I really love the mug, I might buy one as a last minute gift for a friend who I think would appreciate it too. And those clips are so quirky and cute - they'd be perfect for a work secret santa!
