Christmas shopping can be stressful. From figuring out who to buy for, what to get, and how much to spend – its enough to leave us longing for a nice big glass of Merlot. But before you spend time worrying about the big ticket items, take a minute to let us help you pack a stocking for the special people in your life!
Say hello to holiday Commando! Our favourite barely-there undies just got a festive makeover and are showing us why they are the perfect little stocking addition for the girl on the go! The seamless thong style is the same quality you’re used to from Commando. Plus, they’re discreet as ever – the perfect little secret to wear underneath a NYE dress! For the Christmas-fanatic, pick up the thong “Ho Ho Ho” Thong that comes in a deep red hue, with its message spelled out in shimmering gold lettering. For those who care less about the Man In the Big Red Suit, go for the “Snowflake” thong in black, adorned with a single glittering snowflake made from ice-blue rhinestones.
If you’re shopping for a gal who’s against all things winter – never fear! Commando knows that emojis are the only way we know how to express ourselves anymore, so they’ve come up with The Emoji Thong Three-Pack. Three seamless thongs, each with their own personality. Whether you’re shopping for a devilish diva, an affectionate angel, or someone whose motto is #yes, there’s a pair of undies for them in this pack.
Even the Baddest Betch you know isn’t immune to chapped lips! For her, and all other Skull-obsessed ladies, go with a Capital Vices Skull Lip Balm in Black or Red with Mint flavor. These cute little lip balms are made from the highest quality coconut and almond oils meaning they’ll keep your lips hydrated and soft as the temperatures plummet. Plus, these ballsy balms are all made locally here in Toronto.
You know that friend whose purse is always a mess? Help her organize her life with one of these adorable Stephanie Johnson cosmetic bags and clutches. Coming in various shades, shapes, and styles these little pouches are the perfect addition to an overnight bag, purse, or backpack – and can store all those little things that seem to get forever lost at the bottom of an overflowing bag. Plus, they’re cute enough that they can double as a clutch for a night out on the town!
The nights might be getting colder, but this doesn’t mean you have to put those mini-skirts and dresses in the closet until Spring. A pair of our favourite Pretty Polly tights are just the ticket for the girl who like to dress up but wants to keep warm. For the friend who’s the life of the party, go with the “Scattered Embellished” or “Embellished Gold” tights. These glittery beauties are the perfect way to add a flash of sparkle to a boring black outfit. For the practical gal, pick up a pair of the “Modal Secret Socks” in Knee-High or Over-the-knee style. They’re a nylon and a sock all in one – so the thickness keeps you warm whether you’re wearing boots or pumps! Plus, Pretty Polly’s tights are great quality and are sure to last wash after wash all winter long.
If you’re shopping for a girl who loves to make a statement, why not help her out by packing a little bit of bling in her stocking! The “Double V Gold & Silver Long Necklace” from C.Pak and Co is one of our absolute favs and you’ll know why when you see it. Long layered necklaces are all the rage right now and this necklace does it all in one pretty little package for you! This necklace features a long gold chain with gold and silver V’s hanging from it to create a subtle but luxe look. If you like the style, but it’s not right for your giftee make sure to check out our other gorgeous pieces from C. Pak and Co right here.
If you’re shopping for a guy who doesn’t buy anything for himself, look no further than our delightful holiday Saxx Underwear. Saxx weren’t given the title of Life Changing Underwear for nothing. These boxers are made from super soft material and feature special mesh technology in the interior that creates separation and provides lift - so your guy can avoid all that unwanted chafing and discomfort. They come in an adorable wintery “Frost” pattern in both Red and Teal. Or, if you’re feeling super festive, get him the “All Lit Up” style adorned with cutesy Christmas light. Plus, they come in a box small enough to fit in most stockings – so you can skip the wrapping!
Does your man need something to wear while cuddled up by the fire this holidays? Stick a pair of these adorable Tartan trunks from 2xist in his stocking. Nothing says Christmas like a festive plaid, and these trunks all feature a waistband with just that – in red, green, and black. Get them in solid red, solid black, solid white, or all over Tartan – to help the guy in your life keep cozy this winter.
We hate to say it… but chances are the guy you’re shopping for has a sock drawer filled with old styles that likely have a hole at the big toe. Well, now is the time to stock up on some 2xist socks so his feet can stay warm throughout the long winter months. Our socks come in nifty little packs, so you can get more pairs for an even better price! Whether he’s in need of dress socks for those days at work, or athletic socks for when he hits the gym, these styles from 2xist are the perfect addition to any guy’s stocking.
So, before you let your anxiety spiral and rush to the mall – start small for Christmas this year and stuff those stockings! We promise… the face your loved ones will make while they take out gift after gift will make it all worth it!
