There are three main ingredients to the perfect Christmas stocking: 1) Something fun, silly and festive. 2) Something edible (preferably chocolate). And 3) something practical that can be put to good use (like a pair of socks). What really makes a stocking so great though, is that the presents inside don’t have to be expensive. It really is about the thought and for glasses wearers, there are so many relevant gifts that are affordable at the same time too.
Here are our top 10 Christmas stocking fillers for glasses wearers. All available at SelectSpecs for under £20…
1. A stylish glasses case
Everyone needs a trusty glasses case. Because no-one wants a crushed frame or scratched lenses when we already find it hard enough to see. 😉 This lovely case comes in 4 fab colours and is only £5.00.
2. Glasses holder brooch
One of the coolest eyewear accessories ever invented, and such a practical present for people who are always taking their specs on and off throughout the day. A much better solution to placing them on your head!
3. A relaxing eye mask
We all need to rest our eyes to keep them healthy. In fact, it’s recommended that we get a good night’s sleep in order to recharge them and prevent eye disease such as macular degeneration in old age. This compress is one of the best ones on the market and it can be re-heated up to 200 times in a microwave.
4. Eye spray for winter
If you know someone who has suffered from dry eyes during the winter months, this Optrex eye spray will help to soothe their irritated eye symptoms. And because it is sprayed on with eyes closed, they are perfect for anyone who has an eye drop phobia like Rachel from Friends. We all remember that episode…
5. Silicone saddle bridge pads
For the glasses wearer who has the daily battle of specs sliding down their face. These saddle bridge nose pads are designed to be screwed into the frame and will provide added support all day long.
6. Geek chic readers
People who are long sighted can never have too many readers. Because the likelihood is that they will only need their specs for reading and other close-up tasks. And having frames in convenient places (such as the car, at work, at home, by the TV, on the bedside table or in a travel bag) is super handy. These geek chic style reading glasses are just £16.59 so they’re a bargain buy!
7. A handy travel set
For contact lens wearers, travelling can be an added hassle. But this flight pack ticks all the boxes and includes 2 x 60ml solution bottles, 2 x lens cases and 2 x travel bags. The perfect gift for the jet-setter.
8. Glasses cleaning kit
A stocking filler made for the dirty glasses wearer in your life! Mucky lenses can be the bane of one’s life when you rely on specs to be able to see. So a good cleaning kit like this one (just £1.99) is a god send!
9. A glasses cord
This Peepers Keepers cord comes in so many fun colours to choose from (or opt for simple black if your recipient prefers classic styles). This gift will ensure that they never lose their glasses ever again.
10. Prescription swimming goggles
Know any severely shortsighted swimmers who struggle to see in the pool? These optical goggles start from a prescription of -6.00 up to -9.00, making their next pool workout so much more enjoyable. No-one wants to swim blindly, after all.
