This is it: the final countdown to Christmas is officially on. I’m happy to report that I’ve managed to (almost) finish all of my gift-buying. The only things remaining are the stocking stuffers – which, for me, just means I’ve saved the best for last.
Stocking stuffers are often overlooked, but I personally think they’re the most fun gifts to both give and receive. These tiny gifts are like little treasures on Christmas morning. It depends on whose stocking I’m stuffing, but my approach is to aim for a mix of function and frivolity. In other words, things they need (wireless earbuds) and things that are just for fun (a gold-plated spice spoon). In the past, I’ve given everything from gourmet salt to a super chic and shiny flask. It just depends on whose stocking I’m stuffing. I have a list of go-to items that are always favorites. For instance, you can’t go wrong with a great tech gift. This year, I’m giving out this on-the-go charger along with this teeny-tiny Bluetooth speaker. Another favorite is any sort of beauty buy. I usually opt for a Tom Ford lipstick or a Chanel nail polish in a classic shade like “Gitane.“. I also think travel-sized versions of their favorite beauty products (so many good ones here) are always a safe bet. This year, I’m opting for hair accessories like this gold ponytail holder. Fun and necessary, yes?
