Win! A gorgeous clutch bag from Boticca


On the 6th day of Christmas, Domestic Sluttery gave to me... a gorgeous suede clutch bag from Boticca.

Damn this is a pretty clutch bag. It's the perfect Christmas bag, even the right size to put all of your Christmas cards in. It was designed by Ozie Amadi from Solomon Appollo and her gorgeous range is available from Boticca. We want everything, but this is definitely our favourite piece. We honestly have no idea why we're giving it away.


If you're the lucky winner, you'll actually get the choice of two colours - red or purple. To win this piece of gorgeousness (worth £87), just tell us what you put in your Christmas stockings. Are you a tangerine and nuts person, or do you go for something more fancy? Do you do something else instead of a stocking? We want to hear all about it. Just leave a comment below before midnight tonight. We'll pick the winner at random and announce in tomorrow's competition.

Wondering who won the gorgeous Spineless Classic print from Will & Glory? That was Nicky B! Her favourite Christmas carol? 'We Wish You A Merry Christmas...because no matter how many Snowball's you've consumed, you can still remember the majority of the words!' She has a point. Nicky, just email us to claim your prize!

Good luck today, everyone!

Oh yawn, small print (read it). The competition will close at midnight (UK time) December 10th. You must be UK based to enter, sorry you lovely overseas readers. If you're anon your entry won't count and if you enter more than once, we'll discount all of your entries and tell you off. The winning entry will be chosen at random and you must claim your prize by the 14th or it'll be passed to someone else. Your print comes unframed and there's no alternative prize on offer, or cash alternative. We're not allowed to enter our own competitions but we do quite like Good King Wenceslas. it's got a good bit of baritone to it.

  1. Our christmas stocking contents tend to vary from year to year, but the one thing that is always in there is a new Xmas CD to add to the collection - and to play while we open the rest of our presents

  2. I will b putting chocolate in mine, pref the cheap and nasty kind you have as a child as I love a bit of nostalgia!!

    ReplyDelete
  3. I always put the traditional Satsuma or Clementine in along with a handful of nuts and some chocolate money and then a couple of small gifts such as a DVD or a book. Santa always leaves his main gift under the tree!

  4. Christmas stockings are for the silly stuff - always a tangerine, an apple, some nuts, chocolate coins. And also and toothbrush (for after you've destroyed your enamel with nuts, sugar and citric acid!)

  5. I like a bit of tat in my stocking, one year I remember getting plenty of clementines and a rather fine pair of clip-on elephant earrings (thank you, the 80s)

  6. My fiancé is 32 going on 12 so he'll be sad if he doesn't find a chocolate orange with popping candy in it. Last year my future mother-in-law found a rubber snake in hers. Start as you mean to go on.

  7. Clementines, choc pennies and a new tree bauble in each one. Once those bases are covered all remaining space is filled with cheap tat. Santa isn't known for his good taste after all, just look at his get up!

  8. A tangerine and chocolates are a must. I also put little gifts, such as after-shave balm, in my husband's, and small toys in my son's.

  9. Definitely a bag of cheap chocolate coins and the obligatory clementine so that my mum feels ok about the chocolate...yes i'm 28 and my mum still makes me a stocking, is that wrong??

  10. I put my christmas legs in my christmas stockings. They are especially long, gorgeous and svelte at this time of year - or perhaps have just had too much sherry

  12. This year is going to be my little brother's (age 20) first Christmas away from home. In his and the boyfriend's stocking will be a Jack Daniels mini (as its his first 'grown up' Christmas), satsuma (as it is tradition!)and some new PJs to wear for Christmas morning so we are all cosy!

  13. Every Christmas I go home and I have had the same stocking since I was baby. It has a snowman on it and bells and everything. Every single year I receive the obligatory chocolate coins, tangerine and 10p coin at the very bottom. My mum still packs my stocking, I am not ashamed! It means I get some wonderfully practical gifts, such as a scarf and a pair of garishly coloured fluffy socks to see me through the winter.

  14. Chocolate money and a My Little Pony figurine.

  15. Home made salted caramel brownies are going in my stockings this year. Not sure how long they will be staying in them for..

    ReplyDelete
  16. We have a new baby this year and I predict that Santa will fill his stocking (my dads old sock) with a wooden rattle, gloves, a teddy and what ever other treats he finds in his sack (but hopefully no sweeties or tangerines as he only likes milk) x

  17. Sadly I don't get stockings anymore but they used to be amazing when I was at home, especially as a teenager. Satsumas, chocolate money as a given, but also makeup, nail varnish, colourful tights, jewellery, etc. My mother who put them together chose VERY well and I'd always wake up early to see what was in them, and then go back to sleep of course!

  18. I will be popping a super slim digital camera in my husband's stocking this year. I always try to put a special gift in there.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I have done my boyfriend a christmas stocking this year and I think that they have to have some chocolate money in them for sure. As he is a big VW Campervan fan some of the other items are related to that, and also some fun childhood toys like snappers and foam glider planes to make as I think you're never too old :0)

  20. This year I have made stockings for my parents (since they were always so good at filling mine with wonderful tat when i was a kid!) Only instead of stockings, ive made knitted versions of them to fill with tiny pressies. They're filled with nick nacks for the kitchen and the garden, but with the obligatory piece of coal in the bottom, since ive got a tiny bit of it myself every year since i can remember :p

  21. A shoe is where the little presents appear in my house. Everyone leaves out one shoe on the night before Christmas. Not so yummy for chockies but great for toiletries and the like!

  22. This year (at the fine age of 20) I told my Mum that I was too old for a stocking (shock horror!) and am now starting to regret this... Especially because the normal stocking treats are underwear, socks and make-up which I am in desperate need of!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Christmas knickers!! If I don't have a rolled up ball of knickers in the bottom of my stocking on Christmas day I feel bereft!!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. My boyfriend and I have a Christmas tradition of always putting some kind of nerdy papercraft project in the other's stocking. Last year we spent boxing day drinking port, eating cheese and building a cardboard model of a medieval castle. This year I'm hoping for a newspaper USS Enterprise.

  25. I put my legs in my christmas stockings ;) it's nice to wear sexy underwear Christmas morning! Chance of presents increases ten fold then :P

  26. Tat! Stockings filled with nonsense are a staple christmas tradition at home. My mum always picks silly things with some vague practical use so she hasn't *entirely* wasted her money, alongside novelty nonsense and always ALWAYS one weird present. This year, as a suprise I'm returning the favour. Her weird stocking filler is a set of allen keys. Haha.

    ReplyDelete
  27. My stocking always has a chocolate Christmas-themed lolly and some awful (yet fantastic) mix CD of Christmas songs to be played while opening the rest of the presents!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Every year, me and the boyfriend get a stocking each from his auntie Pat, usually filled with lots and lots of little presents; candles, socks, chocolates, games etc. One year there were even a pair of silk knickers in mine! ~ Sara

  29. I don't get a stocking anymore :( but when I did there would always be a clementine, sugar mice, and a bag of chocolate coins! :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. We have THE LARGEST navel Oranges in the PILLOW CASES and Cox's Apples - don't ask my why. It is a tradition that has been in my family for literally hundreds of years and my daughter will hopefully carry it on for hundreds more. Only difference now is that this year she has THE BIGGEST Toblerone in the world in there instead of tiny little chocolates.

  31. We go for a very low-budget stocking. In fact, me and my boyfriend have a strict £5 limit on stocking pressies. It might sound measly, but it is amazing what you can find to fill a stocking for less that five quid. It makes you get a bit creative, find silly wee things, and also leaves more cash for the biggie pressies :)

  32. We have a stationary stocking! New notebooks, diaries and lots of yummy pens and highlighters - we're a geeky family! :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. It's the same every year for our stockings, and there are some things that absolutely HAVE to be in it! They include: a pack of socks (usually stripy), a pair of knickers, a tube of sweets, a puzzle book (or similar alternative activity), something stationery-based (usually pens to do the aforementioned puzzles!), a cracker and, most importantly, Post-It notes. One year we didn't get the Post-its. I don't like to talk about it.

  34. Gorgeous clutches!

    I've helped with my sisters' stockings this year (as they are the domain of my mother - we're never too old in her eyes) - they're getting Japanese zakka items from me such as cute phone cleaners, pens, little animal-themed things that they like (foxes for one, wolves for the other). In my own stocking which my mother is doing for me, I expect there will be some owl-themed goodies, but there will also be more useful things like an international plug adapter as I am moving to South America soon, exciting times!

  35. I like mixing home made stuff like sweets, jam, chutney with chocolates and socks, it's a bit of a random mix but we always give each other socks (the nice, thick socks, of course!)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Even as adults we get a satsuma, chocolate coins and facepaints. The tradition started when Santa/my dad discovered that the facepaints we'd received in our stockings the year before hadn't been used so he rewrapped them and put them in again, and it's continued ever since. This year my boyfriend and I will be hundreds of miles away from family so my dad has arranged to send him facepaints for my stocking to make it feel like home. The sets are beyond disgusting by now but they make me happy!

    I'd love that bag in either/both colours!

  37. A satsuma is always at the bottom and from there I usually put everyday items in but fancier versions. Usually get whatever is on offer for shampoo? Some lovely KMS shampoo and conditioner, Radox shower gel? Some snow fairy from lush. It's horrible in January when you have no money so you can save on essentials and be upgraded at the same time :) The gift that keeps on giving.

  38. 90s sweets always go down a treat. Sought out some Nerds & Dweebs for my brother this year - just not sure zapping his tastebuds before Christmas dinner is the best idea (that said... more roast potatoes for me?).

    ReplyDelete
  39. Beauty bits & jewelz - I'm real fancy! ;) I use a traditional stocking (just on the large side) & always add a bag of chocolate coins for good luck.

  40. Chocolate coins and novelty socks feature every year! As well as treaty stuff that my mum knows will cheer up the January chill...

    ReplyDelete
  41. clementines are a must, then something sweet and something handmade :-) x

    ReplyDelete
  42. As is traditional in our family, we don't have stockings as such. Most presents go under the tree and an actual sock goes at the end of the bed, to be filled with whatever fits in a sock: Ferrero Rocher, earrings, lipstick, trinkets, trifles and pretty things!

    ReplyDelete
  43. When I was younger my brothers and I would all have exactly the same wrapped things but a different types of whatever the present was! Namely fruit, chocolate tube of something, annual, calendar, socks, a book, colouring pencils etc. Santa was very subtle and wrote our names on them in biro (so he could put them into the right stocking after wrapping), however one year I recognised his writing and it was awkward questions at breakfast!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. I normally pop in some chocolate coins, a lump of coal and a cheeky cracker so there's no excuse for nobody wearing a paper hat

    ReplyDelete
  45. My friends will be getting fake tan and a razor to rescue thier pasty white winter legs, followed by a pair of sexy Christmas stockings! Stockings in a stocking - my kind of humour ;)

    ReplyDelete
  46. I put in paper chase goodies, underwear, always lindt chocs and a satsuma..then an assortment of little fun stuff...

    ReplyDelete
  47. No Christmas stocking in our household is complete without chocolate coins, novelty gifts (wind up chattering teeth made an appearance last year!), socks, a pound coin and, of course, a satsuma!

    ReplyDelete
  48. My daughter always get a stocking left on the end of her bed. Those are her presents from Santa, never wrapped (he doesn't have time) but carefully chosen just for her! There will always be a satsuma and some quality street in the bottom, always a beautiful bra or pair of pants (she's studying Contour at London College of Fashion! I put that down to the beautiful underwear she's always been given from Santa!), a small piece of jewellery, a pair of socks or 'fun' tights, a piece of 'limited' edition cosmetics, a quirky stationery item, always a book and always a chocolate Lindt teddy. Sounds really indulgent I suppose, she is my only child and Christmas is the one time of the year I feel I can legitimately spoil her.

  49. I am Polish and we don't do stockings! How frustrating is that? as my flatmates suggested, I shall be putting my feet in the stockings. Merry Christmas! x

    ReplyDelete
  50. We would always have in the bottom of our stocking shiny coins all with that years date on them. My mum would keep hold of them every time she got a brand new penny or Twenty pence piece ready for Christmas. That and a satsuma wrapped up in tin foil! Happy days

  51. Ours always contained batteries if there was something electronic under the tree.
