Sometimes Santa needs a helping hand, so we bring you this list of superlative stocking thrillers (see what we did there?)...

Any make up maven worth her setting spray should own a {Beautyblender} - which means she definitely needs its miniature green {offspring}. Or, if she's somehow missed the memo shameonher, the original pink (or black, or marbled) sponge-egg, will delight so much more than tangerines.

Who doesn't want The Konjac Sponge Company's {Mini Blitzen Sponge} (er, no-one, we hear you cry). Housed in the cah-yooootest little box we've seen, this gentle, purifying facial sponge is enriched with pore-clarifying charcoal to keep all complexions silky soft and free from imperfections.

There's lip balm, then there's BY TERRY's {Preciosity Baume de Rose Bauble}. Über-luxe looking (without an über-luxe price tag), this delectable lip treatment is both fancy and fabulous. With conditioning (delectably scented) rose extracts, it keeps lips kissably soft and hydrated, whilst enhancing with a subtle pearl-pink gloss.

No matter whose stocking you're stuffing (errrr...?), Escentric Molecules {Molecule 01 Travel Size Refill} is the gift that keeps on giving. Guaranteed to attract endless 'you smell amazing!'s, this single-scent fragrance is chic, cool and covetable - ideal for any (wo)man you want to impress.

Everybody needs a {Hand Cream}, and TONYMOLYs tongue-in-chic confection hails from South Korea's beating heart of beauty innovation. Irresistibly kitsch, this fulfils the obligatory fruit-in-stocking quotient, while its vibrant yellow packaging can't help but raise a smile from even those insistent grinches. Criminally cute and eek-inducingly affordable, your beloved's mains are in good hands!

Your favourite skin care obsessive can't fail but be delighted by Pixi's adorable {Best of Bright Kit} - uniting three bestsellers to restore a glow-ho-ho to dulled or winter-wrought complexions. A trio of travel-sized treats, including the brand's best-loved brightening tonic, this kit will restore radiance in time for the New Year (whether celebrating here or somewhere slightly more exotic).

For those who crave the limelight, ensure your mini diva outshines even the well-tinselled Christmas tree with Lime Crime's {Diamond Crushers Cracker Box} - a super-cute trio of über-sparkly lip toppers which will guarantee a traffic-stopping look. Blindingly brilliant, there's nothing not to love about these mythical lip formulas (we're smitten with the 'Unicorn' collection - a glimmering line-up of lavender hues which will transform any kiss from 'meh' to magical).
