2007 Gift Guide: Stocking Stuffers

by Ami Kealoha
on 03 December 2007

We love the idea of hiding something extravagant like jewelry or an iPhone in a stocking, but the more typical fare—knick-knacks, chocolate—will do too. If you're of the non-gentile persuasion, these gifts will work for any (or all) of the eight days of Hanukkah. Check them all out in our gift guide.

Chocolate Cat and Dog Truffles
Hand made by Oregon-based chocolatier Moonstuck, these dog and cat truffles are enrobed in fine chocolate and filled with white chocolate-toffee and milk chocolate ganache filling.

Emoticon Magnet Set
For some, emoticons are a way of life. This set is geek-chic for the fridge.

CH x Furni Farmer Watch
We're a little bit in love with the cheesy retro styling of our all-white, "Casio-inspired" watch. Called the Farmer, it's the result of a collabo between CH and Furni.


Little Lamp
Cute and practical, the battery powers the LED light and acts as a stand.

Bacon and Eggs Cufflinks
A whole new way to say, "Wakey, wakey! Eggs and Bacey!" we're fans of most breakfast-themed items and these cufflinks are no exception.

Preserve Toothbrush
Getting a toothbrush in your stocking kind of sucks, unless its this one with an ergonomically angled handle and made from recycled plastic.


Yoshimoto Cube
A silver-and-gold mathematical plaything, this cube is endlessly entertaining and looks pretty good sitting around too.

Penhaligon’s Miniature Scent Library
For the dandy in your life, this Penhaligon's set is a great way to introduce someone to the ultimate in men's grooming.

Digby and Iona Emerald Cut Cocktail Ring
Cast from an antique ring, this bronze and silver cocktail ring is "on-trend" and already on the wishlist of a few girls we know.


Stacks x Marc Jacobs x Arkitip Playing Cards
From Arkitip's 27th issue, these playing cards are the result of a collaboration between Marc Jacobs, Stacks and Arkitip and come in a die-cut package.

Bing Bang Box Locket
A modern take on a locket, this vermeil box is way less precious and comes filled with seeds. A portion of the proceeds go to the Climate Project.

Leatherman Squirt
The go-to multitool, a Leatherman is maybe even more useful when it can be easily carried on a keychain.

The CH25 is a showcase of creators and innovators from a broad range of disciplines who are currently working to drive the world forward.
