From sparkly talismans to timeless trinkets, the most charming part of any festive spree is shopping for stocking stuffers. Big gift boxes will always excite, but there’s something extra-appealing about a little package wrapped up in a bow – it’s minimal in size but maximum on thrill, proving that, sometimes, the best things really do come in the smallest packages. These thoughtful add-ons are also a chance to show your loved ones just how well you know them by choosing the perfect buy that might not have been on their wish list. But for the woman who has everything, what to buy?
Treat her to Gucci’s monogrammed purse and Portolano’s sumptuously soft leather and cashmere gloves – an elegant addition to her winter wardrobe. For the beauty buff, keep her winter skin in check with Byredo’s scented hand cream, or see that she stays cozy in cashmere accessories from The Elder Statesman and Khaite – they’ll ensure she looks polished even as the mercury drops. Alternatively, up her at-home hygge with Loewe’s shearling slippers and the heavenly scent of a Diptyque candle, while a delicate comb from Sophie Buhai and a velvet jewelry box from Roxanne First will prove the perfect furnishings for her dressing table.
Fashion aficionados, meanwhile, will forever appreciate true investment pieces – Bottega Veneta’s mini ‘Jodie’ bag and statement sunglasses from Fendi are sure to be cherished. Of course, when it comes to footwear, you can’t get more luxurious than a pair of lace and crystal-embellished pumps by Manolo Blahnik.
And if you want to really excite her, then the glint of jewelry will never cease to thrill. Isabel Marant’s chandelier earrings, finished with beads, are worthy of wearing both day and night. For something extra-special, however, look no further than Jaeger-LeCoultre’s iconic ‘Rendez-Vous’ timepiece. Handmade in the Swiss Jura Mountains, nothing will make a festive morning more memorable than unwrapping a future heirloom.
