December is here, and suddenly I’ve got to think more seriously about the whole present issue. So for yourselves (if you have to fill your own stocking), or for your stylish friends, here are a few ideas for stylish stocking fillers or Chris Kringle presents.
Petal Plusheez – Spa Socks
After a long day on your feet, try a pair of Spa Socks from Footpetals.com, great for travel or at home. Unlike bulky slippers, these spa socks save space in your suitcase and are great to wear on airplanes and in hotel rooms. With their slip-free tread, you won’t want to take them off!
If you’re wearing heels to all those Christmas Parties, keep your feet sweet with some extra padding with some Heavenly Heels also from Footpetals.
Why not choose one of the new books on style on the market:

Style Evolution by Kendall Farr
Even though women in their forties, fifties, sixties, and beyond have never looked better, healthier, or younger, their fashion needs have changed. Unless you have the body and lifestyle of an eighteen-year-old, shopping probably isn’t much fun anymore. The fashion industry seems to have turned its back on women who are forty and older, churning out collections that have nothing to do with careers or sophisticated living. Kendall Farr to the rescue! With Style Evolution, she shows readers how to create a hip, ageless, individual sense of personal style without feeding into the culture’s deep obsession with looking “young.”
“Can’t afford a stylist? Then grab this book before you go shopping….It’s like talking to a best friend with great taste.”
—Cindy Weber Cleary, fashion director, InStyle magazine
Or how about some makeup brushes, from purse size to the full kit and kaboodle!
Don’t forget the cosmetic we need to replace most often, a new mascara for those who need a little extra magnification a 5x magnifying mirror, you’ll really be able to see clearly with this beauty.
For when you’re out and about, great purse hangers, just attach it to the handles of your handbag, then hang it on the table at the cafe or restaurant.
Or storage solutions like a cedar belt hanger, keeps moths at bay, smells lovely and practical all at the same time!
Or how about a scarf spinner to hang in your closet and keep your scarves in easy reach.
So these are all available in Amazon, worldwide? The first book seems interesting!
Thanks for the ideas! Especially the books! I am a big fan of Footpetals. They help customize your shoes.
I must be unusual, in that I always love to receive socks. One year a co-worker gave me cashmere socks which were also machine-washable. I was in heaven and wore them to death!
That magnifying mirror is also great for tucking in your purse when you can't read a restaurant menu 🙂
