In my family, rather than exchanging gifts, the adults draw names and exchange stockings. There are 10 of us and we are an eclectic bunch of varying ages and interests so shopping for stocking stuffers that are thoughtful, useful and size appropriate is always a challenge. My picks for the ideal stocking include ultra-pragmatic, useful items like The Laundress Cashmere Spray and S.W. Basics Beeswax Lip Balm Flight to fun, somewhat decadent things like an MCMC Roll-On Perfume, PRITI NYC Nail Varnish and a S'well Reusable Bottle. I also always include a pair of socks; this year it's a toss-up between these Flying Geese Knee-Highs by Little River Sock Mill or the Cotton Pin Dot Socks by Lisa B.
