Holiday Gift Guide Hot Picks: Stocking Fillers
Posted on December 10 2022
Don’t let the admittedly discombobulating timing of this year’s World Cup distract you from the fact that the holiday season is upon us once again! With that said, you’d certainly be forgiven for letting the Christmas gift list slip your mind this year, but luckily for you, we’re here to help put you right back into that headspace.
In case you hadn’t noticed yet, our holiday gift guide is up and ready for review, bringing you all the must-have styles for under the tree this Christmas. Our latest editorial places a special emphasis on arguably the most classic of gift classifications. Stocking fillers are the ultimate way of saying more with less and when done right, can illicit just as emotional a response as the biggest and boldest (and most expensive) super gifts on the market. So read on and let us show you how to do stocking fillers the right way…
Saint Laurent Black Cassandre Leather Card Holder
The classics are just that for a reason, and they don’t come much more classic than a good old-fashioned 5-pocket cardholder. Whether you consider yourself to be a luxury aficionado or not, you simply can’t do much better than Saint Laurent when it comes to this most essential of accessories. Our chosen Saint Laurent Black Cassandre Leather Card Holder, should really tick all the boxes for the ideal stocking filler this holiday season. The unmistakable ‘YSL’ logo emblem is the standout feature here, of course, greatly enhancing the luxury appeal of an already-luxury-looking (and feeling) accessory.
Stone Island Shadow Project Black Chapter 2 Hand Gaiters Gloves
We’re doubling down on winter apparel for our holiday gift-giving hot picks this year, particularly considering how bitterly cold it promises to be over the holiday season! And once again, we turn to a specialist in that arena for inspiration for our latest pick. The Chapter 2 Hand Gaiters from Stone Island Shadow Project add that technical edge and finish to your winter outfit with a technical 5-gauge wool stitch that is sure to keep the unfavourable weather well at bay, all while contouring perfectly to your natural hand shape. The sporty and adventurous amongst your loved ones will love to see these at the bottom of their stockings on Christmas morning!
Valentino Garavani Black VLogo Signature Belt
The key to effective stocking filling is to identify the little finishing touches that your loved ones need to really bring their looks to the next level. It’s not about outfit overhauling, just enhancing, and that’s exactly what Valentino Garavani’s featured VLogo Signature Buckle Belt 35MM does best. It’s deliberately understated with its monotone palette and generally restrained profile, yet simultaneously oozing class and elegance with a premium, ever so subtly textured leather body and the iconic ‘V’ logo buckle that’s the hallmark of Valentino’s unparalleled craftsmanship. This is certainly a piece we could all make use of for the festive celebrations over the next month or so…
Stone Island Heritage Camo Wool Beanie Hat
Stone Island have once again dived into their rich archive of classic designs and prints from yesteryear, reintroducing the fan-favourite ‘Heritage Camo’ graphic for their AW22 collection. We spoke in a recent blog about the strength of the design and the Stone Island Heritage Camo Wool Beanie Hat is the latest silhouette in our showcase to feature the archival camo pattern. This style will surely go down well with anyone looking to bolster their winter wardrobe options this Christmas, but for the true Stone Island enthusiasts out there (of which there are many), it’s certain to be an absolute knockout.
Palm Angels White Vertical Logo Socks
When it comes to Christmas gift-giving, we find that socks always seem to fit squarely into that “gifts they wouldn’t buy for themselves” category. They’re an all-too-often overlooked component of an individual’s outfit assembly, but thankfully, with the help of Palm Angels’ Vertical Logo Socks, you’ve got the perfect opportunity to change that narrative this Christmas! They can easily be paired with a sleek pair of sliders or skate sneakers to achieve that laidback LA street vibe that defines the quintessential Palm Angels aesthetic.
