Christmas Gift Hotpicks: Stocking Fillers
Posted on December 06 2021
The countdown to Christmas Day is now officially underway, so if you haven’t already turned your attention to checking off those items on the annual Xmas gift lift, then might we suggest that there’s no time like the present!
That’s not to say that it can’t be a daunting task, particularly when you’re really only after the smaller keepsakes, more akin to niche little personal tokens than grandiose, over-the-top mega gifts. Luckily for you, the significance of this particular niche is one that hasn’t escaped us, inspiring our editors to curate this edit of ideal stocking fillers for loved ones of all styles and tastes. So don’t be shy, fill your boots (or stockings) with this latest Christmas style editorial.
Givenchy White 4G Logo Socks
Slotting comfortably into that “gifts they wouldn’t buy for themselves” mould, you just can’t go wrong with a cosy pair of socks in the Christmas stocking. Unfortunately, it’s often an overlooked component of one’s outfit assembly, but that certainly doesn’t make it any less important. The right socks can provide the perfect finishing touch or essential trimming to your look. Every pair plays its own role. The role of Givenchy’s White 4G Logo Socks is to add a little class to your look, accomplishing that task with subtle black accenting and understated (yet totally noticeable) logo graphics that calmly let everyone know that you are luxury right down to the socks.
Christian Louboutin Sifnos CL Logo Black Card Wallet
Christian Louboutin’s ‘Sifnos’ wallet has been one of our favourites in the label’s exquisite catalogue of small leather goods since the unveiling of the first collection in which it was introduced. Everything from the smooth, almost seamless interior to the unique cross fold card pocket just exudes class and sophistication, the likes of which are, of course, totally synonymous with Christian Louboutin. The fan-favourite 'CL' logo techno canvas motif receives an iconic red colourway update for the Maison’s SS22 presentation and our featured Christian Louboutin Sifnos CL Logo Black Card Wallet is one of many that adopt the refreshed graphic.
Saint Laurent ID Money Clip
Saint Laurent’s ID Money Clip is easily one of the most unique accessories in our entire showcase and is deserving of a spot on this list by that merit alone. Its diminutive size and utility make it an ideal gift to give, especially if you’re looking for that perfect little keepsake to pad out the Christmas stocking this year. If you’re buying for someone that has a real appreciation for minimalism and subtlety, Saint Laurent’s money clip might just be the one you’re looking for. With its sleek, refined profile, it’s discreet yet confident in all the ways you’d expect a luxury menswear accessory to be. The iconic logo-engraving is the mark of Saint Laurent’s uncompromising dedication to quality and craftsmanship.
Palm Angels Houndstooth Check PXP Sprayed Cap
Taking the heritage iconicity of houndstooth and slapping a loud spray paint decal over the top is the kind of punky, anti-establishment statement that very few labels could pull off successfully. Thankfully, Palm Angels is one such label in that exclusive group, ripping up the rule book once again with this featured Houndstooth Check PXP Sprayed Cap. We’ve always been huge fans of the more streetwear-focused apparel in Francesco Ragazzi’s portfolio, but this style piqued our interest even more so than usual from the outset. Again, it’s really that juxtaposition in styles and attitudes that make this such an interesting accessory - perfect for the giftee with a unique sense of style and an aptitude for collecting conversation-starting pieces.
Amiri Black Amiri Core Buckle Leather Belt
With Amiri’s Black Amiri Core Buckle Leather Belt, we finally have the perfect complementing accessory for our prized Amiri denim collection. (But seriously, if you don’t have a pair of Amiri jeans in your wardrobe yet, we really don’t know what you’re waiting for!) For obvious reasons, our featured accessory is best suited for Amiri enthusiasts - the die-hard followers looking to achieve Mike’s complete, intended aesthetic. It’s a community that’s continuing to grow and thrive and we’d argue that there’s no better time than now to become a part of it. This one really is a no-brainer when it comes to the matter of Christmas gift-giving.
Saint Laurent Brown Monogram Card Holder
Sometimes you really just can’t beat the classics, and they don’t come much more classic than the iconic 5-pocket cardholder silhouette. You also can’t do much better than Saint Laurent when it comes to wallets and other such small leather goods, whether you consider yourself to be a luxury aficionado or not. So logic dictates that a Saint Laurent wallet, such as our chosen Saint Laurent Brown Monogram Card Holder, should really tick all the boxes. The chestnut and chocolate brown leathers complement each other perfectly, with the all-over ‘YSL’ logo motif enhancing the luxury appeal of an already-luxury looking and feeling accessory.
