Christmas Gift Guide- Novelty, Home and Stocking Fillers!!

Novelty gifts- the way to go when you have absolutely no idea what to get for someone, need to get a secret Santa present or have a loved one who eh, loves novelty things (seamless introduction). Some of these would be great as stocking fillers too, such as the fox socks or the owl mirror. Personally though, I wouldn't be getting the likes of the bat keyfob as a stocking filler, even though it is small enough- I know it's super expensive, I just thought it was too cute not to include! I think some of the home stuff would be particularly well received by anyone into their home decor or those who appreciate quirky but completely unnecessary household items *cough, dancing cat speaker, cough*.
Again, clicking on the names of the items highlighted in grey will link you to the websites I found them on.

1) Fox Toe Ankle Socks, £3.50, Topshop.
2) Metallic Ballet Flats, 34.73 Euro, Asos.
3) Hopes, Desires, Quips and Scribbles Notebook, 26.39 euro, Ted Baker.
4) Racoon Hottie, £8.00, Topshop.
5) Paul Smith Bat Keyfob, 62.51 euro, Asos. I know it's stupidly expensive, but look how cute he is!
6) Gold Owl Compact Mirror, 16.67 euro, Asos.

7) Wonder Woman Mug, 2 for 20 euro (in which case I recommend you get the "Queen of F***ing Everything" mug too, I have both and they're both pretty amazing), Urban
8) Paddy Fox Cushion, £26.00, Asos. Ridiculously cute and should go fabulously in most homes. The owl version of this is lovely too.
9) Antique Table Mirror, 32 euro, Urban Outfitters. This would be beautiful on any dressing table.
10) Dancing Cat Speaker, 53 euro, Urban Outfitters. You plug your ipod in and you can have this little guy dance away to your favourite song. AMAZING. The possibilities for hilarity with this are endless.
11) Robot Salt and Pepper Set, 14 euro, Urban Outfitters. Kitsch heaven.
12) David Bowie Mug, £5.99, Truffle You can't go wrong with a Bowie mug, I always say.
13) Rob Ryan "My Home" Cushion, 53 euro, Urban Outfitters. Famous for his illustrations, especially on his cards, this would make a lovely addition to any home.
14) Upcycled Vintage Pinup Side Plate, 39.41 euro, (cup and saucer also available) Not on the High Retro loveliness.
