Three perfect miniatures for your Christmas stocking

Disclosure - Bare Escentuals and Aromatherapy Associates items are PR samples

It pretty much goes without saying that tiny things are adorable. Miniatures are brilliant for travel, testing or just admiring, and the run up to Christmas is a fantastic time to find your favourites writ small. Here's a (miniature) selection of stocking fillers from this year's holiday collections.

1. Philosophy Grace miniature collections, £28.40
If you've never tried Philosophy's "Grace" fragrances, this is the perfect introduction. Classic Pure Grace and Amazing Grace are joined by the more recent Baby Grace, Inner Grace and the newly added Eternal Grace. Each one is 10ml, which should be enough to whet your appetite before opting for a full bottle. These scents are all  light, fresh and airy, so they're perfect gifts for friends and family who aren't usually into perfume.

Find these on QVC now at a special "try me" price of £28.48 (usually £34.50). The saving nicely cancels out the £4.45 P&P.

2. Bare Escentuals Big & Bright Mascara & Eyeliner duo, £12

Add a zing to your makeup bag (or someone else's) with this small but perfectly formed gift offering from Bare Escentuals. You get a miniature Flawless Definition Mascara (which received the official LBR seal of approval from Gemma), plus a tiny version of the Big & Bright eyeliner in Bronze, a smooth and pigmented dark metallic brown that's extremely flattering, particularly on blue or green eyes. This kit is fantastic for keeping in your handbag, as it's easy to apply quickly for big impact on the go.

Buy from department stores and Bare Escentuals counters nationwide.

3. Aromatherapy Associates Heavenly Oils duo, £14

Aromatherapy Associates products don't come cheap, but in our experience they're worth every penny of their indulgent pricepoint. The Heavenly Oils duo is a great opportunity to try out two limited edition AA bath and shower oils at a very modest price. The set includes Breaking Dawn, a bracing blend of ravensara and eucalyptus, and Silent Night, a soothing concoction of chamomile and vetivert. Each bottle is a tiny 7.5ml, but the oils are so concentrated that you can enjoy a fragrant bath with just a few drops.

The Heavenly Oils (and other covetable scented gifts) are available from
