Perhaps you’ve been awake for hours waiting in anticipation, or a certain someone has come bounding through your bedroom door. Either way, you’re awake and the big day is finally here… CHRISTMAS DAY!
What is your first thought? Where are my slippers? How long until Christmas dinner? How much did I drink last night? (too much!) I don’t know about you but I have no shame in admitting that my first thought is, “where is my stocking?” And no, not the type to slide your feet inside, but your hand, in order to reveal gorgeous gifts.
The perfect stocking provides a thrilling journey, as you blindly reach inside and pull out a delightful surprise. Journey with me to see what wondrous presents and ultimate stocking fillers this year’s stocking could hold.
The first thing you grasp is the shimmering cellophane of the Montezuma’s Milking Maid smooth milk chocolate truffles, something to gratefully chomp on whilst watching the Queen’s speech.
Diving back in, your hands hit a remarkable shape and you are intrigued… it’s the Stay Sixty bottle. This beautifully crafted stainless-steel water bottle comes in three Pantone colours and is sure to add style to any outfit whilst keeping you hydrated.
Next up in this year’s stocking is the Marloe Derwent watch, its hand-wound mechanical movements make this beautifully crafted time piece the beating heart of any outfit. How could you say no to such a classic great British design?
Reaching into your stocking with your newly accessorised arm, you pull out the Loewe Klang M1 – brand new, beautifully sculpted Bluetooth speaker. You can have your own little bit of luxury for just £169 and walk around the house blaring out those festive tunes!
When you are starting to think that surely it can’t get much better than this, you pull out the Arthur Arbesser for Silhouette (9909) sunglasses – huzzah! With four stylish colour combinations, these sunglasses are the perfect all-year-round accessory.
Next, you grasp something, unexpectedly soft… it’s a pair of Pantherella monogrammed socks. How lavish! These fine gauge luxury socks come in a range of colours so you can keep it festive or cool and classic for comfort all year round.
Price: Men’s from £20, Women’s from £19
Squeezed into the depths of the stocking are the “sweet-sounding and comfortable” B&O play H4 headphones. Available in six colours, these wireless, over-ear headphones with a focus on pure essentials are perfect for when your loved ones get sick of your Christmas classics (as if that would ever happen, right?!)
Your hand hits a box, not ring sized but something even better… Achieve your health and fitness goals for 2018 with the MYZONE MZ-3 Physical Activity Belt. With six mince pie fuelled days left of 2017, the MYZONE belt will be sure to whip you into shape in the New Year.
Doing one final swoop to the bottom of your stocking, your fingers brush against one final gift. It is the Ted Baker Ballpoint Pen, an elegant writing device that is perfect for those much deserved thank you letters this year.
And there we have it; this year’s Christmas stocking journey has come to the end. And not a piece of coal in sight! Merry Christmas!
