The holiday season is upon us, and it’s time to start making your lists for the friends, family and others who you’ll be gifting this year. If you have someone on your list who can’t get enough of the latest trends in fashion, any one of these fashion forward stocking stuffers will make the perfect holiday present.
1. A printed or brightly colored scarf.
During the winter season, many people bundle up in outerwear that comes in a fairly neutral color palette. Give a brightly colored or patterned scarf to add a pop of color to anyone’s wardrobe. Scarves are functional for their warmth, but can also be worn as a fun accessory to any outfit.
It’s simple. What fashion forward woman wouldn’t want to find a pair of designer earrings or a new necklace in her stocking? Whether her style is hip, sophisticated, funky or all of the above look for something that will complement her style and personality. When you put some real thought into your choice, your friend will not only thank you, she’ll think of you every time she wears her gift.
3. A good pair of slippers.
A nice pair of slippers always comes in handy when you’re hanging out at home during those snowy winter days. Any person on your list would love to be on the receiving end of a warm and toasty pair of slippers. You can choose a design that’s holiday-themed to keep in the spirit, or find a style that will work year-round.
4. A classic pair of gloves.
If the first thing that comes to mind when you think of gloves is boring and functional, then think again. A beautiful pair of gloves is the perfect gift to stuff in anyone’s stocking this holiday season. Not only are they a welcome gift, but they can add a level of fashionable sophistication to any outfit. If you stick with a rich material such as soft, pliable leather, your recipient will be thanking you all winter long.
5. Boot-length socks.
If you have a friend who keeps on-trend with the latest in shoes, then you’ll know that riding boots worn over leggings or skinny jeans are one of the hottest trends in winter wear. Give your friend a little something interesting with a selection of boot-length socks in her stocking. A bright color or funky pattern adds another layer to the look of riding boots.
6. A beautiful watch is timeless.
So many people have come to rely on their smartphones or mobile devices to tell the time. But a beautiful watch is always a classic. This is a great gift because it may well be something that your friend or family member doesn’t already have. For a traditional look, choose something more neutral in a metallic tone such as silver or gold. If your recipient is a bit more adventurous, give her a watch that has a variety of interchangeable bands to complement any outfit.
Sticking with a stocking stuffer theme for your holiday gift giving will be a sure way to have your list done in no time. And those people on your list who have a flair for fashion will be happy to receive any of these spectacular choices that are big gifts that come in little packages.
