From treasured knitwear to the most precious jewels, stocking stuffers are little luxuries that create a delightful start to the festive season. Despite their small size, they can carry big impact by reflecting your giftee’s unique personality. And while a sentimental treat is always a fail-safe choice, sometimes the excitement of stocking stuffers lies in their practicality, playing on an inside joke, or perhaps providing the perfect appetizer to a two-part present. Whether you need a pint-sized gift for a friend or colleague, or wish to show your loved one just how well you know them, our curated selection will ensure a smile on everyone’s face come Christmas Day.

Hoping to treat your loved one to something chic? Look to Toteme’s ultra-warm fringed scarf. Cut from luxurious brown wool, it’s a classic accessory that will work with everything. Meanwhile, Loro Piana’s cozy cashmere and silk-blend slippers are perfect for pottering around on relaxed winter mornings, and Arch4’s ‘Megan’ beanie is perfect for crisp country walks. Knitted from soft cashmere spun in a vibrant shade of royal blue, it’s the stylish walker’s go-to for enlivening a traditional tonal look.

For an elegant upgrade on everyday essentials, look to Loewe and Saint Laurent. Loewe’s ‘Anagram’ belt is designed for high-waisted silhouettes and the polished buckle adds a gilded touch to casual outfits. Meanwhile, Saint Laurent’s ‘Monogramme’ cardholder is a refined choice, providing a practical home for cards and receipts. And if she loves statement pieces, you can’t go wrong with Manolo Blahnik’s iconic ‘Lurum’ crystal-embellished mules or Gucci’s must-have ‘Horsebit 1955’ shoulder bag.

Elsewhere, Completedworks’ beautiful pearl earrings are the ultimate finishing touch to party outfits, while a velvet jewelry box by Sophie Bille Brahe (exclusive to NET-A-PORTER) will elevate her dressing table and fit seamlessly into a carry-on. For the beauty lover in your life, Byredo’s Eyes Closed parfum will be a welcome addition to their fragrance collection. The unisex scent matches the warm, spiced notes of the festive season, with a floral, woody bouquet of cinnamon, orris and patchouli – meaning one spritz will evoke a host of happy memories for months to come.
